- Wedding: April 2014
first of all please dont be rude. I am looking for “friendly” advice, if you have an attitude please take it out on someone else.
Now onto the goods, how early is too early for a saturday morning?
We are being boxed in by the reception site, but its all inclusive tablles,chairs, linens, dj, food, beverages, invites, for 2200, not bad, free bartender-cash bar, no cake cutting fees, setup and breakdown, well worth more than that… so their latest we can stay without incurring a 6000 minimum spendature, which we cant afford, is 4pm, so minimum reception time I have seen is 3 hours… Our ceremony site is 35 minutes away. so that puts us at a leave time of 12pm.
and a start time of what 1030/ 1000? Is that too early?
Questions you may ask?
Why can’t you change your times: this is wine country, where apparently is a wedding destination,anything in the pm costs more, nearly always unless its a community center..
Why can’t I have the reception at the same site? The ceremony site only has one reception area were we can have any music, and it costs an extra 2 grand, for nothing extra than a place for people to stand, no tables chairs, nothing, when my all inclusive site costs a little over than for a lot more.
There’s another option for reception in a completely different place.
Problems with it? Its much further, almost in hour, in the middle of the redwoods(but yes its beautiful) so getting cake and vendors there is going to cost a bit more, and more time in between…that and we have to do everything ourselves, food,vendors, set up, linens, rentals, etc etc.
but there’s not really a time constraint, other than it being parked next to someone’s home who hates weddings :/
any ideas/ helpful comments would help.
