    Why does it have to be one or the other?? I think it is completely possible to have a fun AND nice wedding. Even with the venue you call “cheap/tacky”, it’s all in the presentation. I think you don’t really need to compromise here – make it both fun and nice!

    I think it depends on the type of guests you are having. If you are having a lot of older people (think grandparents, etc.) who might be expecting a traditional ceremony or might not enjoy a reception that is somewhat bar-like, I think the Sunday reception sounds nice. If the majority of your guests are going to be younger and more fun-loving, I think the Saturday reception sounds fun! I would take the age/expectations of your guests into consideration when deciding. I know for me personally, my grandparents would be so confused by the first option. Also – it sounds like there wouldn’t really be any seating options since the reception is on a patio area, so not sure how that would work with some older guests in attendance.

    Beach one sounds like a dream!

    I like the beach idea but I’m in agreement with Krises,  also think of your guess like your grandparents and will it be seating room on a patio.

    I don’t think it matters that just because its a second wedding that you have to do anything other than what you really want to have whether its traditional or more fun and unconventional. It’s really up to you and your Fiance as to what type of dream wedding you have in mind. This is my third wedding and because my Fiance has been married once before and had no wedding we’re doing the whole shebang this time. I’d consider what you really want to have and also keep in mind the crowd you’re inviting. If you’re happy then I’m sure your guests will be happy no matter where you choose.

    I voted for the beach one because I think weddings without alcohol and/or a celebration afterward suck! lol. It’s your wedding have fun if you want to! With the right care and decorations any venue can work and not be classified as “tacky.”

    What if it rains…does the beach idea have a back up option?

    Well we married in a very intimate ceremony on a beach and combined our wedding and honeymoon.  Loved it!

    We flew home and had a great restaurant reception with music and all the trappings of a much larger wedding reception, but with about the same amount of guests that you are having.  It all worked great!

    Go with what FEELS right.  And what is great for the budget.
