 Are you looking to have a small “reception/dinner” or or you looking to have a more traditional sit down reception with dancing? If you give me a little more detail as to what you want for your recpetion, I might be able to help a bit more.

I think both are acceptable, it just depends on what you prefer. As a guest, I would enjoy going to a reception with music, dancing, and dinner, but Ive been to receptions held after the real wedding that were just dinner and enjoyed myself as well. Its not in bad taste…people just want to celebrate with you and will probably be more than happy with either reception.

I went to a nice at home reception at a hotel once.  There was no dancing, just a lot of mingling and a buffet.

@tjaye:  First of all, moving foward: stop worrying about your celebration being in “poor taste” 🙂 You got married in medieval costume for godssake (awesome, by the way), so in no way should YOU of all people be worried about appearances 🙂 Just be you!

I love the idea your MOH is pitching 🙂 I like the idea of keeping with your badass theme, and there is no shame in a celebration with just food.

Just plan this how you would any other party: worry about getting food you love, drinks your happy with, and great decor 🙂

@tjaye:  You’re going to get a lot of that…especially here. I love the Bee, it’s a great place, but it’s very “traditional” and those of us that like to march to the beat of our own drum during this process often get side eyed 😉 That’s why I’m a tribesmaid over at Offbeat as well: both places have a lot to offer 🙂 You should look into it, I get the vibe you might enjoy it.

We are doing a BBQ buffet in a back yard for our reception, and as long as you keep things casual, even traditional folks with be cool with a buffet. Best part: we can feed well over 30 folks for less than $500, and that’s with the *deluxe* package.

At the end of the day, stick with what resonates with YOU 🙂

@tjaye:  I think youre theme will make the reception that much more fun so I would definitely try to incorporate that medieval feel. Are you planning on having it outside bc I think thatd make it even easier to create that renaissance theme and still have it be casual. Here’s a few pics I thought were cool. Good Luck!
