- Wedding: September 2011
This is the dream that my fiancee and I have, and we want to know how we can make it a reality! 🙂
We would like to rent out a restaurant (or part of a restaurant) in Los Angeles (or around LA), eat, drink, and say our vows. This is the schedule we’re envisioning:
6:30pm Guest Arrival (cocktails, appetizers)
7:45pm A few speeches
8pm We will stand up and say our vows (a family member will be officiating)
8:15pm Dessert and drinks continued
9/9:30pm Wrap up and then we will join guests (whomever wants to come) to go out in LA somewhere casual and informal… have drinks locally, karaoke, whatever…
We want to spend the bulk of our money on a fantastic honeymoon adventure, but still want that time to have a meal, drinks, and say vows in front of family. We are not the DJ, dancing with relatives, walk down an aisle, cake-cutting kind of couple, and we really want to stay true to ourselves and not be needlessly stressed.
Does anyone have any helpful tips for this? Has anyone done this? What is the MAX amount of guests we can invite? Any specific recommendations for restaurants in LA that would be accomodating?
Thank you SOOO much!
