A speaker with a music to set a mood would be nice. I just got home from Michael’s and they have a wedding section that I’m definitely dragging FH back to after New Years. They had a pre-light arch, too. Good luck with all the DIY! It sounds like a good time, very similar to what my sister’s dream wedding is except she wouldn’t be the one cooking, lol.

There are nice wedding arches on etsy for a reasonable cost if you find you don’t have time.

I’d say you can do bruschetta for appetizers.

odaile1 :  I had my wedding at home in my back yard and kitchen. We did a pot luck(very common for any type of celebration where I live) We provided bbq hot dogs and hamburgers, my sister made cupcakes in place of a wedding cake , my bff made wine for everyone and everything else was just whatever food people brought. I don’t remember what everyone brought. We had 15-20 guests. I would recommend getting one of those electric buffet trays things that will keep the food hot, and also cooking everything the day before if possible, just for your sake and your own enjoyment of the day. You can easily do your own music with a playlist on your phone and a bluetooth speaker. Give yourself twice as much time as you think you actually need to get ready the day of, better to have time to sit and drink all done up than be rushing to get ready as everyone waits. Use paper plates and disposable cutlery, doing dishes for 15 the next day would suck. Hmm what else….. buy your mini lights now, they are 50% off or more right after Christmas and near impossible to find any other time of year, also the best time to look for green and white decorations. If you have a Micheals store near you go there on Wednesday (cause it wont be open tomorrow), thier Christmas foliage stuff is really pretty and imo versatile. Those are my tips for you.
