    Low key is totally okay! You are appropriatly feeding and housing guests for a wedding. It doesn’t have to be some big fancy affair to not be trashy!! 
    ETA: I thought of this after I posted. It sounds like you will be having a smaller guest list in a smaller sort of room, but still make sure there are seats for everyone! That was the worst part of a wedding I was at, the room they had was never meant for all the people they invited and seriously 75% of the guests were stuck trying to stand and balance a drink and plate, which is not fun in formal attire!

    I think that it sounds really personal and sweet.  Are you planning to do DIYs?

    how large is your guest list? i mean, i think its a good idea for like a midday reception for a few friends, like a get together, but anything over 20 folks  might be pushing it. but i wouldnt know without seeing the location. hope this helps, happy wedding.Smile

    I’m afraid you can never stop people from calling something trashy. Someone probably called the royal wedding trashy. So as long as you and hubby are happy and enjoy it, that’s all that matters.

    We went to an engagement party on the weekend, in a clubhouse, that was a little bit trashy 🙁 

    the reasons why I think this is because

    1. The music system was not good and therefore did not create a nice ambience. It was a BIG room with just a jukebox at the front so the music didnt travel throughout the room. A good sound system and nice music can make a big difference to the ‘feel’ of a room

    2. The B&G were trashed 🙂 the bride is pretty full on at the best of times. Well, she put on her Zilla boots and hollered her lungs out right across the big space. It was a bit cringe worthy.

    i think as long as you do your best to class it up with nice music, champagne, a wedding cake and decorations & not write yourself off, it can be really nice. Even tent wedding receptions can look really nice with the right decorating.

    do you have any pics of the venue?

    This is what we are doing too! Our condo building has an amazing (and large) clubhouse. Wehave a guest list of about 45 people and they will all fit comfortably in it with the appropriate amount of tables and chairs. We are having Uncle Julios cater it.

    Our condo has been really helpful with helping us plan everything out. But the best part is, it helped us cut thousdands out of our budget. Where I live wedding venues are ridiculously expensive and this was a great alternative to spending all that money.

    It sounds quite nice to me! I don’t see what could be trashy about a modest celebration. We’re having a simple wedding, too.

    You had me at Jimmy John’s.  This sounds great to me!  Informal doesn’t equal trashy.  As long as you guys are happy with it, that’s all that matters.

    We recently moved into a house, but the last apartment complex we were in had a lovely clubhouse and pool area. I might have considered it myself if we were still there. I think there’s nothing shameful or ‘trashy’ about having a wedding you want and can afford.
