Would you find this tacky?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have to have two AHR since he's from Canada and i'm from the US (Colorado). His parents are planning the one there and nobody from my family has offered to host the one here so it's left to us. We just moved to Louisiana. Obviously i'm not going to plan a reception in LA where nobody lives and would have to travel to. I've been thinking about how to plan the reception in CO and joked around about having it at Dave & Busters (an adult-type bar and arcade, Dave & Buster's Restaurant, Bar and Arcade for Family Fun, Parties, Meetings and More!) This way, they do the cooking, set-up, cleaning, it's informal, fun and entertainment is provided. They can do groups for as little as $25 a person including a $15 game card for each person (buffet).

 

Do you think this would be a fun reception to attend or would it be tacky?

Yeah, it's mostly because we don't want to spend a lot of money on it. But also because I don't want to have to do all the planning something more formal would require from such a distance!

That's true. I don't think we would have a TON of older people or people I think wouldn't enjoy it. My grandparents will be grouchy no matter what so I don't really care there, everybody else might as well have a good time!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
