So my SO and I have decided to move our date up to 12/30/2014 and to get married at a courthouse with a small reception afterwards. This is a huge shift from the beach wedding that we had planned for August 2015. Our guests will be about 25 people including us. Where should we have the reception at? I was thinking of just getting the patio and our favorite restaurat; The Chop House, having our cake brought there, and allowing guests to select from 3 different meal options. I have seen other bees have a private room and dj…am I missing something? What I have planned does that sound good enough? Also, I have been trying to find a bridal coat. I was thinking a peacoat either in ivory or a pretty blue…any thoughts? All help, suggestions, anything would be appreciated!

lele1482: What about transportation from the courthouse to the reception? Will everyone be driving separately? (Nothing wrong with that)
What about after? Do you want to book a hotel or stay at a B&B or something?
It sounds like everything else is pretty much taken care of. Do you want a photographer?

Thank you so much for your reply! Everyone lives here so they’ll drive themselves. I reached out to a former co worker of mine because she does great photography work on a part time basis though. Hopefully she’ll be able to shoot my wedding. Im thinking of a B&B but I havent 100% decided on it as of yet. I’m excited/stressed at the same time lol

Sounds like a great idea to me. Plan the party you want. I would start by calling the restaurant where you are thinking of having the dinner/reception, find a place with availability and how the menu would work for 25 guests. Budget for drinks/alcohol?

lele1482: I had mine at a local, historic restaurant for only 15 people and loooved it. Very intimate. We didn’t have a DJ. We brought the cake ourselves. Dinner was DELISH! In fact, we got married in the same room. So I think it’s an awesome idea!!
