Are there any bees who have done a wedding at home or planning to do so?
I am having a small wedding (about 15 people) in my apartment. I will be removing my furniture from the living room and renting chairs. I will have some lights, flowers and other decorations in the living room and dining room. I am making my own wedding arch which will have artificial flowers, leaves and fairy lights. I will cook a traditional dish (meat, rice and vegetables) and a pasta dish (spaghetti with meatballs). I will have ready made appetizers and salads. One of my friends is bringing a desert. I will also have a wedding cake. My colour theme is green and white. For the ceremony, my cat will be the ring bearer and my fiance’s niece will be the flower girl. For the reception, I and my fiance will perform Tango.
I would like some more recommendations for what else I can do for food, decorations and entertainment that could result in a better wedding. I am open to new ideas and suggestions.
Thank you in advance.

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.

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.

Thanks! These are very good tips especially the electric buffet trays. I will definitely look into that. I will definitely take your advice and give myself more time that what I acutally need. I already bought very nice disposible plates. I also bought mini lights. I will also check Michael’s on the day you suggested.
