          Mine was in a backyard next to a pool, lined with candles and tables decorated with white linens, green and black flower arrangements (the black flowers were incredible!) and there were candles everywhere. I gave them my guest books from my wedding and photos of all my relatives on their wedding day that I had at my reception as well. I brought along the mustaches too for obvious reasons.

          My best friend had little bubble tubes made with our names and wedding dates on them. They had food, just snack like food mostly with perrier. There was a bar with champagne and lambrusco and real champange flute glasses with a bowl of rapsberries. There were chairs everywhere and everyone just basically hung out and had a good time. Music was playing that a friend put together, some our wedding music, others songs that reminded us of Mexico.

          It wasn't like a wedding reception at all, it was a way for people to come celebrate with us that weren't able to go, sign my guest book and bring a present!

              Wow, sounds divine! I like the idea of just serving one celebratory drink, that way no need to have some one bartend (you can't go wrong with champagne & raspberries can you? ). I so want to get some props like the mustaches too--etsy here I come!

              I wish I knew someone with a large backyard and a pool !!

                  Di your pictures look amazing!

                  Have any of you planned a small BBQ type reception for when you got home or planning to over the summer? My husband & I have been talking about it but haven't made plans yet & if we do it would be very informal but I think mainly just to have fun and get our friends and family together.

                    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!).
