I want people to be comforable, but my reception site is much more formal than what my family has had.  Overall, I’m going for a classy dinner, and then a relaxed and fun dance.

I want it to be intimate and FUN!! We’re only having around 60 guests, so I think I can acheive the first part at least 🙂

one of my favorite things to do is go antiquing, and having lunch at those cute little restaurants where they have random things like pitchers filled with flowers and doilies everywhere. so that’s what we’re doing, we’re going to a b&b, centerpieces are antiques filled with flowers, and lots of doilies. i don’t know exactly how i want people to feel about it. i guess i want them to mingle, and think that it’s a little different than their average wedding.

we are going for a romantic, warm, family oriented which means a southern inspired reception where our family and friends can have a great time with great food and great fun! 🙂

quirky, whimsical with a slightly formal feel… honestly the only way I know how to describe it is “southern” and “fun”

Want to make sure everyone’s well-fed, are dancing, are talking/mingling, and having a blast!  We saved the formality for our Catholic church ceremony….after that, it’s gonna be ….ain’t no party like a Chicago party coz midwestern parties just rock! =)
