    • Wedding: September 2017 - Ceremony and Reception: Historic mansion on the water

    Wedding scenarios 2,3,1 in that order for me.  I agree scenario 4 is a costly event for most people.

    I think scenario 3 would be my choice. It’s still intimate and laid back but sounds like the surroundings would be easier on guests. Many people have disabilities so standing or sitting on grass or sand for long periods can be difficult.

    1 or 3 would be my choice. Disney weddings just make me cringe. You really have to like Disney for it to be worth the cost of flights etc.

    snowbelles:  I would try to bring a few chairs with you, even if they are just lawn chairs. Your guests may forget their chairs and there may be people who have issues you don’t know about. My partner is only 44 but has rheumatoid arthritis and many people don’t know because she doesn’t broadcast it. No wedding has to have the best food, the most alcohol or the greatest venue but as hosts the minimum we should do is make our guests comfortable.

    A lot of great ides there.  Just think the movie night might detract from the celebrationo f your marriage.  I think that your loved ones might rather interact with you on your wedding day rather than look at a superhero for 1.5-3 hours.

    You have to consider the guests, on your list …

    For my husband and myself, #3 would be our only option. He’s disabled, can’t sit on the ground, or walk on uneven surfaces, like sand or grass. His last flight was this past summer – travel involves too many challenges. I’m sure we’re in the minority, but I’m just giving my choice, as requested.

    snowbelles:  I went to WU too. 🙂 class of 2014 but I transferred and moved to Texas. Man do I miss eating at Groucho’s and sub station!!!

    i like the beach idea in chucktown best out of the ones you listed. Have you considered some of the pretty parks in rock hill? The chapel on campus is gorgeous though so that’s my 2nd choice.

    snowbelles:  I’m not a huge fan of the outdoors, so any outdoor place isn’t my thing. But that’s just me. plus with those weddings you have to worry about the weather. You aren’t guarenteed that it is going to be a nice day

    snowbelles:  Of your options, I like 3 the best.  

    I’m not a Disney person, at all.  And the fact that you’re trying to keep it hush hush doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.  

    The beach would be fine, but chips and dip?  I’d, personally, want a little more than that for the night.  (I’d have no problem going to the ceremony and going on my way for the night.) 

    I’m not a fan of the movie night at all.  But if you were to do it, why not a pot luck? I get what you’re trying to do – something fun, low key, family oriented, not stuffy.  But I still think people should be fed.  And there should be comfortable seating (and the ground does not qualify as comfortable seating, IMO.) The Drive-In could be a total blast, but it seems pretty anti-social.  And really, on your wedding day you kind of have to make small talk with people you don’t see very often (if you invite them.)
