That’s what we had! I joked that our wedding was basically a catered cocktail party that happened to involve vows and a tall cake.

Can you compromise? Have it set up like a swank party with no assigned seating, more mingling, etc. But at certain points of the night, you can have a few special dances or toasts to satisfy your FI?

The two of you are going to have to compromise on a lot of things in your married life. You can start now.

Have your cocktail reception but include the traditional things he wants.
