that's what we're planning right now - ours is on june 12 and will be just a casual bbq in our back yard (no big beautiful pool, unfortunately!). right now, we're expecting about 60-70 people. we're having it open house style (starting at 3pm) so people can just stop by whenever they can.
we will serve burgers, brats, dogs, salads, etc. along with beer and wine. we'll have a slide show playing of our wedding pics (inside in the daytime, then moving it to outside once it's dark).
i'm planning to stop at the farmers market that morning to load up on flowers and i'll do simple table centerpieces, likely just flowers floating/submersed in water and some pretty things in the bottoms of glass vases.
we're still looking for fun little ideas to make it memorable and fun but definitely want to keep a simple and relaxed atmosphere (as well as keeping the costs down!).
