I don’t get their schedule AT ALL. Like they’re already having a gap between their ceremony & “wedding breakfast” and now they’re having a 2nd day also with gaps???

Is the second day optional? It sounds like the second day is more a casual affair for a larger group of friends so they can share the event with more people without breaking the bank? But if you’ve already gone to the first day (family event) which is the traditional wedding, do you really have to go to the second day? Did you ask if you can just show up whenever you like for the second event since it’s casual (if you have to go / want to go that is).

We were going to have a bbq the day after the wedding since many family and friends from interstate are in town for the wedding. Ended up not organising that but went to a local brewery instead, everyone was invited but no obligation to come.

One of DH’s friends had an intimate ceremony and dinner with family only. Then had a party for friends and everyone else a few months later, which family are more than welcome to come but they don’t have to.

MissCtoMrsR :  yes. Wedding “breakfast” at 6:30pm. 🤔 Is this even a thing?

libellules :  Again, wedding breakfast just means dinner in the UK (and sometimes Australia).

Breakfast is the first meal of the day (where you break your fast from the night before) a ‘Wedding breakfast’ is the first meal of the marriage.

I’d probably just do the day 1 events and skip the rest to be honest. I’d a little much to spend 2 days on a wedding.

Yes, it’s just older traditional (rather sweet) nomenclature. It’s a pity some pps cloak their ignorance, understandable, but ignorance nonetheless, in an amazed/sneering tone.
