- Wedding: April 2012
OK I have posted about this a million times but it the one thing my Fiance and I have gone back and forth about and have not made a decision (well he has but I am not convinced LOL)
We are having an intimate wedding with around 60-70 guests and want a lavish but laid back feeling to our reception.
We are having a 1p ceremony which should last at most 1/2 hour and then adjourning to the adjacent ballroom for afternoon tea. For the ceremony we are having a harpist but then switching to an iPod for background music and will be playing love songs from the crooner era – think Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin etc. In part it is because we love this type music but also a tribute to my Fiance late Father who adored it too. We are not planning on dancing a first dance and having a fairly short reception 2-2.5 hours with food, photobooth, open bar, magnetic poetry kits. We are only having a cake cutting and praying for few to no toasts.
So the venue will supply a small dance floor if we wish. But we really wanted to spend the time mingling with our guests, nibbling on scones, drinking champagne and a relaxed fun time before we send our liquored up guests out to enjoy the nightlife that Vegas has to offer.
Should we have the dance floor installed for our guests or figure they will have a fine time without it mingling, eating, listening to music, drinking etc?
