Ok so my FI and I are having a small family-only ceremony with a larger reception 3 months later.
I need help with what to do after the ceremony. I thought about getting a b&b and having a catered meal, but that seams pretty formal for our immediate family.

@jb20: Can you give us a couple more details about the ceremony? Where is it, and how formal or informal are you thinking? If it is outdoors, for example, I might suggest a BBQ (depending on the time of year your ceremony is & how cold it might be).

It’s in February, it’s going to be formal. Suit and tie style. Only around 30 guests and that’s parents, grandparents, siblings, nieces/nephews, and 4 very close friends. The ceremony will be in our church in mid afternoon, so dinner would be around 5. There won’t be any dancing or anything at this dinner, as we are having the large reception in May that will host all of that. I would like it to be a two-hour maximum for the dinner as we’ve booked a 2AM red-eye for our honeymoon and we would like to get a little sleep before we depart.

@jb20: Maybe book a party room at a nice restaurant? It will feel intimate but not too formal
