some of my friends will be in school or simply cant afford it. so I want to do something either before or after the wedding for them. something on the cheaper side.. but I still want people to dress up and me and my fiance be on our wedding attire (he would rent a tux). Something different then a dinner maybe.

@carlypaige: We’re doing a simple appetizers/cocktails reception in FI’s home town. No sit down dinner; just simple appetizers, open bar, and some homemade cookies. Plus slideshow, kids’ room, and dance floor with ipod. We have asked the dress code be semi-formal and we both plan on wearing our wedding outfits. Hope that helps!

I agree with the PP. What about a fabulous formal cocktail reception with appetizers and a few signature drinks. You don’t need to go full open bar to cut down on cost.
