No garter/bouquet toss, and it’ll be more of a cocktail party rather than traditional reception.  No special dances, etc.  We just want people to enjoy mingling

Ditto – no garter or bouquet toss. We’re going to have a grand total of 2 single women at my wedding and I just couldn’t do that to them!

We are definitely serving alcohol though.

Traditional music, bouquet/garter toss, father/daughter and mother/son dance, guest book, programs, i’m sure there are more.

I’m still trying to win the leaving out alcohol battle.

We’re leaving out the garter-thing. Iffy on the bouquet-toss. I’d rather have something else replace those two. Leaving out “maid/en of honor” and “best man” – everyone is “equal.”

I haven’t brought this up to Fiance yet, but I cannot stand the chicken dance or the electric slide at weddings! Hate it! And I dislike the clinking of wine glasses to get the groom to dash to his bride to kiss her. Ick.

I also don’t know how to work the father/daughter dance, since my Dad is disabled and on oxygen. And the mother/son dance will have to be replaced, since FI’s Mom passed away in 2010.
