    I'm trying to figure out what the night should look like. We have already booked a hall and a friend on the family will be doing music for dancing after dinner. Our contact at the hall recomended everyone arrive for 5:30pm then eat at 6 but that seems a little early to me and I'm wondering what to do the rest of the night? I'd love to hear how other people are organizing the evening/night?

      it depends on what exactly you want. for us it's just a welcome back home party. so we are treating it as such. if you are doing a reception - then you should plan it out a little bit more traditional. like a wedding reception. but all this depends on what you and your FI want. there are many people on here that are doing a BBQ and other who are doing a full on wedding reception.

        Are you having a more formal AHR? If so, then it could follow the traditional reception timeline. We are looking to have an informal, BBQ celebration when we get back and do not have a timeline necessarily.

          We're doing 5:00-5:45 apps and everyone arrives
          6:00-7:00 is dinner
          7:00-7:15 is "first dance" cutting of the cake
          7:15-7:30 is thank-you's to family members and everyone for coming
          7:30-10:00 drinking and dancing!

          We are going to be there when everyone is arriving (no formal entrance) but we'll be in our wedding gear to get pics done with family/friends who coudln't make it!
