I need some advice. We are having a wedding in August of 2011 and trying to figure out the details for our reception. The venue is fairly small, just like we are planning to have our wedding(40-60 people). Because our reception rental we have booked is small, I am having some problems trying to figure out how to set up both the ceremony and the reception in one area, when the receptionm requires so much set up. I don’t know how to pull it off, other than perhaps, having the ceremony at a park outside somewhere-but because of where we live, bad weather is a possibility.
Someone mentioned to me, looking at maybe only have a cocktail party only after the ceremony instead of having a full reception.
I myself wanted to settled with a simple justice of the peace and call it a day, instead of having a full wedding, but my soon to be husband does not. I want to know what your thoughts or views are, on cocktail receptions instead of a full reception. Is it common? when do you normally see it happen? Im worried about people’s thoughts thinking its cheap or innappropriate etc. Have anyone you know, or even yourself done this before?
Thoughts, go right at it with your views on it. I want honesty.
If you click on “Catherine and Jeffrey’s wedding”, you will see pictures of the location we rented out for our wedding. It’s fairly small, with a large fireplace. http://www.dianescaman.com/photography-portfolio.html
