I am having a morning wedding with yummy brunch food at a family backyard/ranch in Temecula, CA. The theme was going to be rustic (in keeping with fall wine country), but lately I have been toying with the idea of making it shabby/chic tea party/rustic garden theme. There will still totally be drinks, DJ, dancing and photobooth, it’s basically a day party! The round tables all have beige market umbrellas attached.
My trepidation is that I have people coming from all over including other countries, and I want it to be nice! (Yes, I know, do whatever YOU want and don’t worry about everyone else but I can’t help it!) So is it too casual for a wedding? How can I class it up? I was thinking nice teapots with flowers for the centerpieces and other cute decorations. I’m also nervous it’s overkill on the girlyness!
Ps theres a formal rehearsal dinner the evening before at a winery.

We did a lunch wedding that was laid back and we got only positive feedback from it! I think yours sounds great!

People only care that there’s enough food and booze and good music. You can have magazine cover worthy decor and people will remember your wedding as being awful if they left hungry. Lots of people have receptions in drab ugly VFW Halls and people remember the wedding fondly for all the food and fun they had. I wouldn’t sweat it too much. It sounds like you have basics of a good party covered.

I think it sounds great! I’d just caution against doing a formal rehearsal if the actual wedding is more casual.
