So we are putting together our wedding weekend events list. Any suggestions? We have a really wide group of people that are going to show up. We are lucky in that we live near va Beach so there is lots of resources. Our goal is to keep the price super low and make it more about being together than spening $$$. But the weather in VA in July is going to be hot hot hot.
Anyone host a wedding weekend that with awesome events?
Anyone attend a wedding weeked that was a blast?

My wedding is mini-destination and all the guests will be staying overnight. I’m also trying to figure out what to do the next day. We were thinking of winery tour or apple picking–but are leaning toward just doing a brunch instead.
Maybe you can have a beach BBQ or find out about getting a tent at a park for a picnic.

We are getting married in my hometown, but almost all of our guests will be from out of town. Bonus is that – like VA Beach – my hometown is beachy and has tons of stuff to do. So, we are having a lot of wedding events, but we are also providing our Out of Town guests with a good map and a comprehensive list of things to do, our favorite places to eat, etc.
We are getting married over a holiday weekend (wedding is Sunday) so here is the plan:
Friday night – rehearsal, family dinner at my parents’ house
Saturday – wine tasting in the afternoon, welcome dinner (everyone is invited) at local pizza place (5:00-9:00 pm), and then we have a bar designated for anyone who wants to keep hanging out to meet at
Sunday – boys event in the morning (surf lessons), getting ready, wedding 4:30-10:00, after party at a bar near the hotel
Monday – brunch at my parents’ house (everyone is invited)
I hope that helps!

We’ve got wedding weekend events scheduled. We’re having a Welcome Campfire the night before the wedding to give out our welcome totes and roast some marshmallows (this will also follow our rehearsal dinner, so should flow easily). So far I have planned to have sparklers, “glow” jewelery (for the kids) and lots of board games/card games around – besides the campfire s’mores. The day after our wedding we’re inviting everyone to a cabin we’ve rented lakefront for swimming, cookout, horseshoes, soaking up the sun… and general relax-ed-ness. We had originally planned on hosting a group hike up a local, easy hike mounain, but have since decided it’s easier to visit with people sitting on the beach than sweating our way up a mountain side. We have included a list of about 20 activities on our wedsite – half are free, nature activities, half are inexpensive activities – some of these educational. Although 90% of our guests are Out of Town, Future In-Laws thought all of their relatives would drive in the morning of (1pm ceremony) stay overnight in a hotel, then take off early in the next morning. I hope such isn’t the case, as I’ve never met any of them and FH hasn’t seen any of them in over ten years! Woops! I rambled on again, but yeah – so that’s what we have planned! Good Luck!
