- Wedding: September 2013
I am having an outdoor reception (with marquee) and am on a very limited budget. I am looking for ways to decorate, and have seen a lot of very pretty photos with hanging in jars from trees/in decorations on tables.
Has anyone else done this? Who did you get to light all the candles? Did they mind taking time out of the party?
Kind of related, but washing up. There are lovely photos out there where tables have been made up with mismatched china from charity shops. In a field without running water.
Do those plates sit there all night once people have eaten? These have been real weddings, and I wanted to know if people hired staff in, it was sorted by a caterer or it just sat there til the day after.
I have asked friends and family to help us set stuff up before the wedding, and they have been great. If you have done these things – have people minded taking time out of the party to help with this stuff? Did you do it yourself?
