At home reception
Posted 27 February 2009 - 01:28 PM
So for invites we are planning on doing one of the picture cards- like people do for Christmas cards. The one we like has a pic on front, then you open it and there is a picture inside with details. So not the really cheap ones, but pretty reasonable too.
We are going to have our slideshow and video going as well... food is going to be kabobs, brats, salads and bars...things you can eat with plastic silverware. we'll serve beer, wine, sodas and maybe a punch. Works for me!
The part I need to worry about is transportation/parking. They are out in the country a little ways and I don't want people to take advantage of open bar and drive tipsy out there so we are thinking of shuttling people to and from. I think it would be a wise investment.

we're inviting about 160 ppl, catered but only with hor d'eourves. we didn't want a formal sit down dinner, only a mingling semi formal cocktail reception. we have bar service where we're providing the alcohol. no wedding cake, just desserts.
doing a sand ceremony, our wedding speeches, and wedding slideshow. that's it, no other typical wedding reception stuff. no DJ either, we're just making a playlist and boogeying down to it.
i have an electric blue backless AHR dress that i'm starting the evening in. but we're getting announced like you normally would so we can make an entrance and i'll be in my mexico wedding dress for that and probably an hour or so after that. but then back to my blue dress for the rest of the night

We're not wearing our wedding attire, but its going to be black/silver/white themed, so I will get a new fun party dress! We'll be iPod-ing it for most of the night, and we will have a band play from midnight on (my dad's band....kinda cute!). We wanted something that was more of a party, and less of a reception, and I figure....everyone is always looking for something fun to do on New Years Eve!
