Hey there Hive I’m looking for some help, I’m trying to get an idea of our time line for the Wedding day. We’ve hired this amazing castle venue and are getting married in the castle chapel we can only have 100 people for ceremony & breakfast and its important to us that everyone else can be invited to the evening party
But both me and the groom to be both like the idea of getting married in the morning (I blame “my fair lady”) but that means the Wedding meal becoms lunch and the evening buffet (which we’d have to have anyhow) becomes a bit more substantial and acts as dinner.
But what do we do with our guests between lunch and party time? friends have suggested scavanger hunts or a big murder mystery but my mother (and the groom) think this is a bit childish. What do you think any ideas or experiances of an early ceremony that stretched till evening?

Uh, I think a scavenger hunt on castle grounds would be AWESOME! But maybe that’s just me 🙂 A photo scavenger hunt would be great fun and provide memories and favors for guests.
Is there a guided tour that they can provide (remind guests to bring comfortable shoes)? I’m not sure of how many ‘wedding things’ you can do through the entire afternoon stretch, but I’d totally take advantage of the awesome location and enjoy as much of it as you can. Castles are fun, have fun with it 🙂

@indibee: Thanks I’m really wanting a tresure hunt ( I love hunts and my partner is awesome at writing cryptic clues) I know my family will get into it and he’s mainly inviting friends and they’d love it, so I think it would only be an odd aunt or grandma that aren’t thrilled. Thank you You’ve totally given me more confidence in the idea 🙂

@Red Panda: Yay! Go to it! 🙂
Could you host an ‘afternoon tea’ for those who aren’t big on the outside/grounds treasure hunt? Designate a room/area of the castle where there are NOOO TREASURES (so those that opt out are not disturbed by ‘hunters’) and have light refreshments, board games, some background music, etc. Sort of just a hang out area for those that wish not to participate.
