Hey! We got married just this May – he is military. . .so we are planning a party for next may our one year anniversary.
I wanted it to be a brunch. So it isn’t this massive DJ, dancing, drinking into the night affair. I know thats the norm, but I wanted something quieter, but still really nice!
There are these really cool breweries you can rent out for intimate parties.
The elements I’m including are:
An omelet station – a table filled with breakfast goodies sausage and bacon. Croissants and muffins.
Bubbly Bar: Champagne on ice with carafes of peach juice orange juice and mango juice as well as fruit to add to your drinks strawberries peaches blackberreis raspberries- all sliced and ready to go.
Then a stand alone cake table off to the side. Just a small cake.- Butter cream single tier. Topped with flowers. We can do champagne toast and cake cutting.
a coffee bar with tea!
Finally a Dessert Bar for a few other desserts for prettiness factor. macarons, cupcakes, fruit, yogurt, pie.
I want to hire some live music for an hour of dancing. then thats it!! BOOM all done in a few hours- fun filled morning of champagne – some live music – good eggs and breakies. . . all with immediate family and best friends only.
By keeping the guest list short, I can really make the party very special with lots of flowers and great food.
It sounds like a lot when I type it all out like this- i was just trying to be specific. The reality will be, people show up in the morning for some coffee at the coffee bar – then vows – then we eat omelets and whatever. – then champagne toast and cake cut – then some live music dancing then finished!
So its short and sweet with a lot of the elements of a wedding – without the massive stress. Cause HEY! we are already married!! We just want to have a fun party!
This is what I’m planning on- and I hope maybe some of it helps to shape your ideas too.
