    I love it! I think it's a great choice to choose a venue that suites your group size. I think the vibe your creating (without place cards, small tables) sounds great!

We couldn't use the ballroom because it seats 250 and we would look lost in there. So, because we are in the cocktail room (which is still huge) the tables are smaller and seat anywhere from 2-6 people at each. Because there are so many tables, we aren't doing table numbers and place cards. Does that seem weird? Also, we are doing our group pics before the ceremony,and just the 2 of us after. We were going to be announced in halfway through the cocktail hour so we don't miss it (its my favorite part of a wedding!) We are not having the bridal party announced since they will already be in the room. We are also not doing a "first dance" because we are awful dancers, and don't like the idea of everyone watching us looking silly. We are not doing any toasts or speeches or the garter and bouquet toss. Are people going to think my wedding sucks? We basically want a big fun party, minus any traditional wedding stuff. If you went to a wedding like this, would you be disappointed?
      It's your day...you're entitled to do what makes you fell happy!!
      I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...
