I have always dreamed of having my ceremony around 10 am and a brunch reception to follow. Between the two, we will have a “Coffee hour” with brunch appetizers. My Fiance and I will only be 20 and we don’t drink, so I wasn’t planning on having alcohol either. Because it’s so early, we would also only have the first dance. Does this sound horrible? The ceremony will be at an outdoor chapel at a beautiful country club and the reception will be inside at the same country club. I’m just worried it won’t be that fun for out guests, but it’s our style, laid back and not too crazy!

i think that sounds lovely. a “coffee hour” with brunch appetizers is such a great idea, i love it! definitely not crazy. most of my friends are a late-rising crowd so i would probably do 11 for the ceremony, but overall the concept is a great one. how exciting!

That sounds exactly how we want to have our wedding. We will be 25 and 27, but we’re not drinkers, and my Fiance is SO shy so he doesn’t want to have a dance at all, but I’m still working on him to at least have our first dance. I didn’t think about having the “coffee hour” though so that’s a great idea!!

I love the idea of a brunch reception! It’s so laid back, there’s yummy food, and you guys get to spend the rest of the day together, just you two!

That sounds wonderful!!! I think, on the contrary, it WILL be fun for your guests because it’s so laid back and you, rather than something too formal for your tastes!
