    What if you do the wedding in the morning at the chapel and provide a breakfast for the guests…then plan some fun group activities during the day, then host an informal after party that night for anyone who wants to come? The fact that the after party would be informal means that you would save on decorations and stuff and have dancing and finger foods.

    I think this is a lovely way to honor your grandparents and their 50 year marriage!

    Personally if it were me and I had a date with such sentimental value as this one seems to have for you, I would either go with option 1 (FH and I aren’t big dancers so that wouldn’t really bother me, plus it would be budget friendly if your trying to save) or option 4 and try to find a new venue.

    Good luck and welcome to the hive

    How important is it to you that you get married in that chapel? I think I would pick option 4 and find another venue.

    I’d go with either option 1 or option 4…depending on whether it’s more important for you to have an evening ceremony vs having it in the chapel.

    Something completely informal in the evening like what JamaicaBride suggested could work too, but I wouldn’t plan the ceremony for the morning and the reception for the evening.  If you were a good friend or family, I’d probably stay even if you did that…but I’d be annoyed because I’d feel like I had to stay.  If you do something informal/after partyish in the evening, people won’t feel as obligated to stay so if they do stay it’s cuz they want to.
