Commenting to follow, we are probably doing a brunch wedding also. My biggest fear is that people will be bored with no dancing or activities.

hammondtime:  Brunch wedding all the way! Daytime weddings are often overlooked and I think they are the best. I had one, so I am biased ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the great thing about them is you actually get to spend the whole day being married and being with your husband rather then spending the whole day getting nervous waiting around for the wedding to start. Also, there is lot’s of time to enjoy your wedding night ๐Ÿ™‚ Most of my friends who had night weddings fell asleep in an exhausted stupor before well, you know. 

Also, getting married at the same place as your parents? How cute is that. Sooooo romantic!

We are doing the polaroid camera with our guestbook too. One those that take mini photos… it fits right into our Amelie part of the theme. Thought people would have fun with that.

Also wanted to add. We are also having Dances of Universal Peace. So there will be some sort of dancing but its spiritual circle dancing very simple moves & singing led by a Sufi leader. Me & Fiance met at a DUP dance at my dance school a night me & mom were participating in this & alot of our guests attend monthly dances & retreats.

Commenting to follow as well. Our preferred date falls on a Sunday and we are also thinking of having a luncheon wedding. We are most likely having an intimate wedding of less than 40 people and thinking of ideas to make a luncheon wedding more “celebratory” compared to an evening wedding. A day time wedding would probably mean no dancing at all and I’m afraid my guests will be bored.

hammondtime:  We decided to go with a brunch/lunch wedding because Fiance and I aren’t big dancers and neither are our families. It’s an intimate wedding, 50 guests. There will be plenty of food, wine and beer. A few of our friends love to dance but we can do that or hit up a bar after the wedding with them ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus we will have all day to spend married and take pictures with the photographer. 

I’m loving this thread!

hammondtime:  My concern with doing a brunch wedding would be your timeline.

I am getting married at 5:30, but my girls and are getting our hair and makeup done at 12:30-2, I have to get dressed, and we are taking pictures before.

hammondtime:  I think your idea for the brunch wedding sound awesome! Just go into it knowing that it’ll likely be more casual and as long as you’re ok with it being shorter than a “typical” reception and not having people party/dance you’ll be good to go!
