- Wedding: May 2012
Our wedding ceremony will be interfaith (FH is Jewish, I am Christian and wearing flame retardant pants). As such, it would be next to impossible to hold a wedding on a Saturday (sundown at 8:30-ish). We also live in an area that takes its location in the bible belt very seriously. That means we’re trying to plan a wedding with a full out Jewish reception (7 blessings, lots and lots of wine, the hora, etc.) on a Sunday in a location where even the alcoholics are teetotal on account of the churches being open.
My current idea (outside of a location way outside an area we’re familiar with…. and I find it to be a nice touch to a wedding when the couple has a connection to the site other than the bill) to satisfy all of our guests is to have a Saturday pre-wedding reception. The ceremony would take place on Sunday afternoon and we’d follow it up with a much more casual back yard bbq type reception since many of our guests would have zero interest in the Saturday shindig.
What do you think and do you have any other ideas?
p.s. Thought I posted this in the reception category… oh well.
