I think you should stick to whatever times are listed on the invitation. Personally, I think ‘a simple announcement at the park’ would inconvenience your guests. For example, if I showed up expecting to be at the park most of the day with the cake/lawn games you describe above and then head straight to the brewhouse from there I would be annoyed if it were announced when I got there that actually the entertainment at the park was going to be shortened. Vice versa, if I expected a break in the afternoon I would be thrown off to find out that was not the case when I got there. I guess I would arrive prepared for whatever the plan on the invite said…

If you do decide to change the plan, give your guests the courtesy of a heads up before the big day.

We had an after party at a bar. I would not schedule a break as you will lose people. And I would budget that about 50% will go. But you know your crowd, and eating a few dollars is not the end of the world.

sunflowers121 :  same. The moment I go home I’m putting on PJs and calling it a day.

Ppl who want a break will take it. So long as the plan isn’t to bar hop it’s not hard to duck out for a bit.  I’m more the sort that’d show up to the bar for an HR or two and head home.

Also depends on how for people are traveling, to determine if the break is convenient or not, and if they have hotel rooms or were just going to drive home. But there’s no way I’m wearing wedding clothes all day, changing into chill clothes at home, and then changing back into wedding clothes. Noooope.

When it’s all said and done, I’d vote no break.

I can’t give advice to someone marrying an abuser other than don’t get married & cancel the wedding.

I think if you have a break you will lose people. I think if people want to change they will probably go and do it and show up late, but it also just depends on how close everything is to where people are staying. Can you call all your guests or email them and get an idea of how many are coming to it?

mrsaime :  Right.. how someone can marry someone who abused an innocent creature in front of her face is beyond me.
