- Wedding: November 2013
We are planning a smaller wedding (40-50 ppl) in the courtyard of our reception venue. Its a small courtyard but i love it, it fits 40 sitting, with a little standing room. We are hoping to have the ceremony at 530, with cocktail reception (150ppl) to follow at… 630? Im just looking for advice any other brides planning to do something like this? How to not offend anyone who is only invited to the reception? We just always wanted close family and friends only, but i have a feeling alot of people will be upset that they were only invited to the reception. Has anyone else done something like this?? or planning to? We are only planning to have a 1/2 hour or so in between so that the guests from the wedding wont be bored while were taking pics basically waiting for the party to start, and Im hoping this arrangement wont seem too weird to everyone… Any ideas??
