    Sounds lovely. It doesn’t sound boring but the vibe will be different and may not go on as long.  Will there be music?  

    Also, these children have sophisticate palettes.

    It sounds fun to me! who doesn’t love a boozy, swanky dinner? I don’t need a live band and a dance floor to have a great time, esp not when I’m celebrating someone’s marriage.

    This sounds like every guests dream.  No awkward situations, not being forced to dance or endure the elements of an outside wedding.  Be sure to include one or two speeches though and make your rounds.  Otherwise, a fancy dinner is a terrific way to spoil your guests.

    This sounds absolutely perfect to me and I wish we would have gone this route. I’d take good food and company in a relaxed, beautiful setting over traditional wedding festivities any day.  Throw in some nice background music and thats even better. But it depends on the type of vibe you prefer.

    It’s different, but does not sound boring, and will likely end earlier without DJ or other distraction. It’d be cool if there was a live band at the restaurant and guests can check it out, but not to the point where it’d distract them to a different room. 

    I will say that the fancy dinner for kids seems like a waste of money when they 1) wouldn’t appreciate it and 2) easily be super happy with what is typical for kids chicken tenders/fries/etc. although mac n cheese is awesome…unless of course these kids have palettes to actually appreciate the fancy menu.

    Not my ideal personally, but I do think it sounds like a really enjoyable evening. As long as you are aware that it won’t last as long as a ‘typical’ reception, but dinners do tend to drag out a bit when the food is good and the company is good anyway, so it won’t be a quick event either. 

    Are you doing sit-down meals? My only thought would be to look at how you are serving, and whether you could do passed appetizers while people mingle. It sounds like a big room with great views, so it could be nice for guests to have the option to wander around enjoying the view and some nibbles while chit-chatting? I only say this because sit-down dinners can be horrid if you’re seated with people you don’t get along with super well. But you know your crowd, so I’m really just thinking out loud 🙂

    Lots of people go out to dinner and have an enjoyable time.  A wedding reception is pretty much just a big dinner party.  Music and dancing and games are just optional extras.  People know how to amuse themselves and enjoy each other’s company at all other kinds of dinner parties without music and dancing and games.  It’s only boring if THEY are boring.

    I’d go to a $250 dinner no problem.
