After some talk with the fiance, we are switching our plans for our reception. After researching catering, it seems as if we can only budget to feed about 100 people for dinner. My original guest list includes 160. By doing an afternoon light refreshment and dessert reception, I will be able to invite everyone. This is alot more important to me (not to mention that we may be able to have a longer honeymoon!). Our ceremony and reception will be held in the same location.
My inlaws have a large place out in the country, and we plan on throwing an afterparty for whoever wants to come.
What time should the ceremony start for this type of reception, and will allow enough time for people to come to the afterparty? Should I include an extra note in our invites telling people of the afterparty?
