I didn’t do a recap but we only had 30 people I think?

People partied down but I don’t have any pictures to show you since they are still packed up somewhere.  It wasn’t a huge party or anything and there were some people who had quiet conversations but my husband and I aren’t dancers so that’s what we wanted.

We had just under 40 people attend our two-day wedding. It really was a blast! Here is a thread about it with lots of pictures of the ceremony and outdoor reception. 

I got married! A few guest photos of our west coast wedding!

We provided accommodations, food and activities for our guests. We built our own dance floor and set up our own wireless sound system so we could control the music from our iphone (my hubs is ON that sort of thing). We had a local caterer come in for the recpetion dinner and went to a restaurant in the woods for the second night. We even had a golf tournament the morning after. 

Good luck!

  • Wedding: April 2011

We married in our living room with immediate family present for the ceremony.  About 20 people.  Afterwards, we had a reception where about 75 more people came.  My stepmom, sis and best friend prepared the food as a gift.  We decided not to serve alcohol so I just bought pop and water.  I ordered cupcakes from the local grocery store for the cupcake tower.  120 cupcakes for about $65.  My son hooked the laptop up to the stereo and we played background music from the laptop. Darling Husband had already done a playlist.

I wore a new dress and shoes that I can wear again.  DH wore a new suit and shoes that he has worn several times since April.  Flowers, cupcake tower, card box were all DIY.  Decorations were minimal.  All in all we spent about $150-$250 including the marriage lisence and the donation to the pastor but I’m not including clothing because we can and have worn them again.

I shared the 25ish teaser pics that our photographer blogged, but did not do a full recap. We had 32 people total, including us, and it was an amazing weekend.

we had about 13 people at our ceremony and then 21 people at our reception.

we choose a very nice restaurant and had the whole event there, it was amazing! Darling Husband isn’t a dancer so we left that part out and had a longer cocktail hour with appetizers instead. after we cut the cake everyone hung out and talked and then about 30 minutes after that we wrapped everything up.

I can’t post a link since I’m on my phone but I did do a small recap, just check my profile.

We had fewer then 60 people, i think. I never counted. If you’d like to see recaps, you can find them in my profile.

We had 65 people. The venue we chose required us to use their catering company, but the food was good and we loved the setting. The cupcakes were also purchased, since we had a destination wedding.  It was nice to be able to talk with people we hadn’t seen in awhile, neither hubby or I or the group we invited to the wedding are big dancers. But we had music, a bonfire, smores and lots of fun anyway. The first link will take you to some non-pro pictures. The second link has the pro photos as a slideshow.
