- Wedding: December 1969
Okay Bees! We are having our ceremony indoors, at a Catholic church. After which, we will change locations, to a wedding house (if you will) for our cocktail hour and reception. Here’s the thing. I have always wanted to have it ALL outside. Like, I really don’t want any part of the cocktail hour or reception taking place indoors. But I am unsure exactly WHERE on the property I should have these things set up.
Here’s an aerial of the venue for a better idea:The tents/patio, is where we currently plan to have our reception set up! Though part of me really wants to forgo the tents, and have the tables set up back by that large tree (just behind the patio) and have the buffet/bar set up on the patio (and cocktail tables), along with the dance floor.
Meanwhile my fiance thinks we really should stick with the tents, have the dance floor in the open area in front of the tents on the patio, and have our cocktail hour set up in the grassy area next to the tree, behind the patio.
As far as cocktail hour, I am just not sure. I think it would be kind of fun to have it over by the gazebo, to make it more of a separate area, but then that would require that the bar/beverages/etc be moved after cocktail hour…
Maybe I am being silly about this all! But seeing the aerial, where do you ladies think YOU would want cocktail hour set up? And what do you think of my idea of forgoing the tent? Ugh. Logistics… they’re killing me!!!
