I need some MAJOR help. We are a very intimate wedding to include the bride, groom and one family member. We have everything set for the actual ceremony, but are at a lost at what to do after the wedding. We still want it to feel like a wedding, but don’t really know how to bring the “reception” idea together with 3 people.
Any help, ideas or suggestions you could offer would be wonderful.

Go to the fanciest restaurant you can afford, take lots of pictures, order a great bottle of wine or champagne, and enjoy the day! You can order fancy cupcakes or a small cake and have it delivered to the restaurant prior. A wedding is whatever you make of it 🙂

Private dining space at a fancy restaurant. Lots of nice restaurants have a seperate private party space or even a chef’s table. Then you can order an amazing arrangement, fantastic napkins and rings if you wish. You could also run through a 5 course meal or do a tasting menu. I could see this being quite a fun night. (I am a foodie though, this may not be your cup of tea)

I would pick one of those crazy expensive mulitple course seating restuarnts (like Tru in Chicago for example) and have an amazing dinner, do the wine pairing, make it a total indulgant experience that will be remembered.
and take tons of pics!

Thanks SO MUCH ladies. This is kind of the route we were looking, but just wanted to get some feedback. I think this will be perfect, since I will be graduating from culinary school a few weeks before our wedding date. I love the idea of incorprating my love of food with the love of my life!!

I’m not sure what your budget is, but if you wanted to make it really special and not just like you’re eating out (this was important to FI and I mostly becuase we eat out all. the. time. the way it is) you could rent a nontraditional space, like a room in a downtown historic building, or even a small art gallery. We’re hosting about 10 people and found a one-room art gallery downtown that we’re renting for the evening and bringing caterers for. TOtally doable with 3 people and the small head count could get you into some pretty unique places, but not sure if you wanted to go that far with it. happy planning!
