Sounds like a fun party to me! I don’t see the need for receptions to be stuffy, formal affairs. That’s great if that’s what you want, but at the end of the day, a reception is a party celebrating your marriage. If you want to celebrate this way then there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

I have no experience to draw on, but it sounds lovely to me. The setting will only appear too casual if you show up in a giant ball gown a la Cinderella.  

If it’s in a wooded area maybe provide some bug spray?

I think the relaxed (def relaxed, not casual) feel is lovely! If I was a guest, I would also appreciate  that you are roasting the hog elsewhere as I am always super grossed out when I see that lol. Have fun!!!

I think some centronella candles and maybe some fans or something to keep guests cool. I would be way too hot in august, but thats avoidable!

If it starts close to sunset I’d be ok with August, although fans would be appreciated. I don’t eat pork nor do I care for beer or wine but this still sounds like a fun day. 😄 Second pp on providing bug spray if possible but I’m always getting attacked so I know to bring my own.

This sounds like so much fun!! I’d love to be a guest!

A tip depending on weather and where you’re located: make sure you have bug spray on hand for guests to use. At least down here in TX we have mosquito heaven during the sweltering summer months even into August. Also, make sure you have a backup plan with an indoor option.
