Hello fellow Bee’s! My fiance and I are having a private nikah at home (immediate family only) and then are going to have a dinner/Valima that night or the next day with immediate family, some extended family and some close family friends, but are still going to keep it small (~50-60 ppl). My extended family don’t really dance so we’re not getting a DJ or anything. Just wondering what we should do during the dinner since we won’t be doing the nikah/ceremony there – i don’t want it to be completely boring. I’m lost as to how to fill 3 hours. We’ll have our entrance, and then I guess everyone will come up to us for pictures during dinner. Any other thoughts? Would a luncheon valima make more sense for something this low key? I feel bad having family fly in for a simple luncheon or even simple dinner.
