    We’re kind of combining what you’re doing and doing both.

    Saturday will be traditional ceremony & reception. Guest list is ~125

    But we’ve rented out a lodge Fri-Su nights for everyone to come to and hang out in between wedding events. After the rehearsal dinner on Fri, we’re having a “welcome party” at the lodge. We’re having the day after brunch there on Sunday and we’re organizing a rafting trip for everyone thats up for it Sunday afternoon. I also find traditional weddings rushed and wanted to spend the most amount of time with our guests as possible.

    There are other accomodations, but the lodge will be the party place, I’m sure.

    It doesn’t end up being that much more expensive since the lodge guests will still be paying for their room. At most we’ll eat one night of the cost to rent it.


    EDIT: What I wouldn’t advise is spreading your wedding over 2 weekends. Thats a bit too much, especially for the people (immediate family) who would be attending both
