Ceremony is about u and reception is for guests. I m not saying u throw everything u want out of the window but it’s not all about u either. Caring about your guests show class. Even though as a bride, I may luv beautifully decorated venue and stunning dress and shoes, we have spent most on venue, food, alcohol and DJ ( things that will ensure that our guests will have a great time) and less on dress and decor and shoes. I don’t think barbecue style wedding is bad but no alcohol is a bummer. I’ m not telling but I personally will never pick a venue that will not allow alcohol – that’s a big deal for guests. You are free to do what u like but pls don’t be sad or offended if ur guests leave early. Also, if I m going to a wedding, I really don’t care about bubble machine and I don’t expect myself to go fishing or hiking on a wedding. What I mean is those things don’t add any value.

I think your wedding can work out, especially if it is early enough in the day that it is a daytime reception. Make sure you have plenty for your guests to eat and drink (non-alcohol is fine) and the way you are letting guests know ahead about the hiking and fishing available, sounds good. Think about the comfort of any older guests that might need good comfy chairs. 

And then you’re hosting also at a bar later? That should take care of those who feel they must drink. 

I think you’re being thoughtful of your guests. Just go over it in your mind for all the different age groups that might be attending. 


Enjoy your wedding!
