- Wedding: June 2013
My fiance and I currently live in Canada and will be having our wedding and reception in the UK. Because of venue size/budget we will not be able to invite any friends from Canada to attend (we could only invite them to the evening reception, which i think would be incredibly rude for what is essentially a Destination Wedding for them).
To get around this, we would like to have a small reception in Canada when we get back in June, to give us a chane to celebrate with our friends here. Unfortunately our budget for this will be very small (probably $100-$150) which means we will pretty much have to host it at home.
Has anyone had a low budget back yard reception? If so. what did you include? What food/drinks did you serve? what did you do for entertainment?
It’s unlikely that we’ll be able to offer too many beverage choices for 40+ people, so I was thinking of making it just a signature cocktail and nibbles for a specified time (say, 6pm-8pm)?
