    Ok...I really like the lunch reception!! I think that you should look into other restaurants for lunch after your 11AM ceremony. I think this is a great idea! If you do something like this you are going to cut out all the stress of doing the backyard gathering yourself. Even if you do just appetizers/drinks or drinks/desserts at your in law's your still going to have to get the plates/silverware, set up (you'll need chairs, tables, decor), what if it does rain (do you really want to chance it), etc, etc, etc. Even if you make it simple, it's still a lot of work. I really think the lunch idea is great. If you research to find something in your budget, everything is done for you. All you have to do is show up. I would simply leave it at that.

    Good luck - let us know what you decide!

      Glenda!!!! I'm so glad you are getting married. I concur with the rest of the girls. Ditch the Rehearsal Dinner. I love the idea of a cocktail party because it's so elegant and cost efficient at the same time. Usually with that sort of affair you don't need as many tables because most are up and mingling. Twinkling lights, lanterns, and tea lights would be wonderful and inexpensive as decor. Good luck sweetie!!!

          I vote cut out the restaurant ($$$$$$!) and do a backyard thing. It just seems like more fun to me (maybe cause I would have one too many cocktails if I went)
