- Wedding: July 2017
im trying to have a frugal wedding (hoping to do it for under 10K, we are paying for it ourselves) and we were thinking of serving a light dinner from a popular food truck.
It’s going to be a casual affair so it’ll be an eat when you want, sit where you want kind of thing! I have two possible timelines, can I get your options on both?
4:00pm arrival- give out champagne
4:30 outdoor ceremony – no phones and put away champagne
5:00 photos in park and send guests on amazing race scavenger hunt in park
6:00 appetizers set out (corn chips and pico de gallo, guac, sour cream , I might make nachos) , Food truck to serve 3 different types of tacos (including vegan/dairy free/gluten free) and some other things. Eat inside or outside on lawn chairs, blankets and pillows. Play lawn games, chat, have drinks (wine and beer).
7:30 pm – quick speeches and cake cutting
7:30-8:30 cake, play outside , chat.
8:30- clean up ask some guests beforehand to help
9:15ish – kids and guests not into partying can go home. Whomever wants to come can party with us and out of town guests in my wedding dress! We’ll just go out somewhere in Vancouver .
Take out amazing race and have dinner at 5 instead. Everything moves 1 hour ahead.
Do Sunset photos at between 8-9. Pay someone or ask some REALLY nice friends to help tidy during this time .
I like the amazing race idea of timeline A. However I feel like people will eat more at 6 especially after running around a park and I think we might go over 10K
However I love the idea of sunset park photos in timeline B. But…. I don’t like the idea of asking our friends and family to clean up while we are not there helping at all. I could also pay someone, but we are close to over budget as it is.
Sorry so long!! Thanks for all your thoughts and help!
