I know most people are against having tiered receptions, but hear me out. I have a fairly large guest list, over 200 people. Alot of them are work friends and people from my church who are more so friends with my parents. I’m thinking of having a cake and punch reception in the basement of the church immediately after the ceremony, maybe with some other desserts and day few appetizers. Afterwards I was thinking of having my family and close friends/out of town guests over to my parents house for, not necessarily a formal reception, but a get together and dinner/cook out. How does that sound to you? Woold something like that be ok? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks bees!

People get crazy about tiered receptions, but I really don’t feel like this counts as one. It’s more like a cake & punch reception and an after party, which feels totally normal to me. I say do it. It’s not like you’re excluding people from something fancy. You’re just having your nearest & dearest at your parents’ place.

Another bee had a similar issue the other day. Hopefully this thread will help:
Invite to Ceremony only? Can I do that?
