We are! Although we may be having our ceremony downstairs, we haven’t decided yet. 

One thing I’ve seen a lot is to have separate set-ups, and then excuse guests for a cocktail hour in between. This works especially well if there’s a garden or other room to mingle in, obviously.

Holla! Same here ๐Ÿ™‚ Right now the plan is to have the ceremony outside, but it will be inside if it is raining. We are having a standing cocktail reception, so we don’t have the table set up problem, but the kitchen is right next door to the ceremony/reception room, so things could get noisy if we have to have the ceremony inside… I am still working out the logistics of it. I am sure tons of people have done it though! I would actually ask your caterer for some ideas, mine has been really helpful so far ๐Ÿ™‚

If there’s no drinking allowed, you could have hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. Maybe even a “signature” non-alcholic drink – are you not having alcohol at the reception, either?

Then I’d definitely do a signature drink that’s non-alcoholic along with hors d’oeuvres, I think that’d be really cute… even if it’s something simple, you could still have fun with it.

That sounds delicious! I loooove hot apple cider. 

Fall has all the best drinks. Like pumpkin spice lattes. (Sorry, you got me sidetracked!) 

I think that would work really well, especially if you paired it with fall themed foods – you know, some pumpkin or cranberry or other spiced foods.

I think hot apple cider sounds like a delicious idea! We’re not having alcohol and are going with coke (fiance’s request), sweet tea (my request), and maybe punch.

I think you could easily just do desserts – I’ve never known anyone to say no to them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think so. My FSIL’s favor was sugar cookies, and everyone literally dove into them before the dinner started. There were M&Ms and such on the tables that got devoured as well. Maybe just to add a little nutrition you can have some sort of cheese dish as well? But I think the cheesecake tarts, mini pumpkin pies, etc, sound heavenly.
