- Wedding: September 2015
My SO and I, although not engaged, have quite a bit theoretically planned out for our wedding. We’re thinking about having 15-25 guests, doing a US destination wedding, and the ceremony will be in a National Park. Now, the part I get most stuck on is how to do the reception. We want to save money, and I don’t want to have to pay for more guests than what arrive.
So far, I have found a venue that accommodates 20-40 guests with a minumum of $500 rental, that includes just about everything setting-wise (not flowers) and catering service. Food and drinks are extra. We decided that any music we have will be from a playlist. I’m not huge into decorations – the venue has a balcony off of it, overlooking the bay, which is decoration enough for me! I’m not 100% set on this, I’m just going off what little I know about weddings in the first place.
Any advice on how to do a small reception without too much detail or spending too much? How did you do it?
Thank you in advance!
