    Good Idea!

    Bad Idea...

    I wouldn't even do the "drop-in" party.

    I think it sounds fine! But keep in mind that many guests expect there to be a proper reception with food, so as long as everyone knows what’s going on up front, then they can make other arrangements for dinner later.

    Also, I know you said it’s a small wedding, but your out-of-town guests may not bother coming if it’s just going to be a ceremony without the more traditional reception stuff. Again, as long as everyone knows up front, I think it’s fine 🙂

    @swedeypie:  I think having it at your house (or a family member’s house) makes it more casual. That’s what you want, right? If you rent out a venue it will be more expensive and appear more formal/reception-like.

    Well I just consider a reception like a party at a hall or venue.

    We are having a large reception at a hall, right after our ceremony.  Its from 8pm-1am.  So what we are doing is a “midnight buffet”.  Just about everyone around here has them, even if they have a dinner.

    Going to have sandwiches, salads, veggies, fruit, dips, cheese, crackers, sweets, etc.  We will serve it around 9.

    It would depend how long your reception/celebration is?  Certain things would be fine being served the whole time, like you would at a party. Like chips, crackers, cheese, etc.  I think it sounds fine… There are lots of options if you have it at a hall or where ever.  Like if your doing a dance, you can have chips and stuff the whole time, then a small luncheon like I am doing.
