- Wedding: June 2013
What’s your reception style? Or what are you envisioning for your reception?
FI and I are very laid back. Neither one of us are partiers. We have a 2-year-old (mine, he’s adopting) and spend all of our time together as a family, revolving around her. Our wedding is going to be very intimate – 50 people max, mostly family, a few very close friends, about 5 kids under 5, 2 more under 10. We’re doing it at a resort in Destin, FL and the reception will be on the beachside deck.
Every wedding I’ve been to lately has been with a DJ and dance floor. That’s just totally not my style (or his). In fact, I LOATHE dancing. The hotel provides sound equipment and an iPod hookup. I was planning to just make a playlist to play in the background. Nothing terribly pop-ish – Ingrid Michaelson, Matt Nathanson, Florence and the Machine, that type of stuff. Aside from the kids, everybody will be mid-20s and older.
I really would prefer a more laid-back, casual affair, but will people be bored if I’m not blaring dance music?
