The resort WC wants us to do the champagne toast/cake immediately following the ceremony. So, the order of events would be:
4pm - Ceremony
4:30 - Champagne Toast / Cake Cutting / Eat Cake
4:45 - Pictures
6pm - Private Reception (first dances then full dinner & reception)
Does the above look ok?? A couple benefits I see are that 1) doing the cake cutting & toasts during the daylight will probably allow better lighting/photos; 2) since we aren't having a cocktail hour, people can mingle/eat/drink while we are doing some group pictures; 3) We will have less "activities" to do once the clock starts ticking for the 3 hour reception; 4) The cake will probably get eaten since folks might actually want a little snack around 4:30 whereas by 7:30pm people might be stuffed from dinner (which includes dessert).
Only problem is that they aren't giving us any tables or anything so I guess we just stand around and eat cake and drink champagne? Or maybe we can just sit in the chairs from the ceremony?
I am really struggling with the logistics of this one!

Our "free package" comes with a cake and champagne and so maybe we have the ceremony, take the group photos (again, with only 6 people, that won't take long!) send our guests to wherever the cake is going to be set up then join them after we have our photos taken.
Since we have 35 people, we will probably do the toast/cake first, then while the guests are mingling, we can do our group pics, etc. As the group pics are done, the guests can leave and meet up at the reception.
My only problem is that I am trying to envision standing up trying to eat cake and drink champagne?! I wish they would give us some of those tall tables, but they will only do that for cocktail hours.
Since you only have 6 people, you could easily do the group pics first then do the champagne toast/cake.
If we wait until the reception to do the champagne & cake, most of it will go to waste anyway.
Keep me posted on what you decide to do or if you have any other ideas!
PS We live on Cedar Creek Lake (Mabank/Gun Barrel City area)

I love what you did Nicole! Sounds like tons of fun.
I like August2010bride's plan also.
It's nice to see everyones plan. We are trying to stay on a strict budget and utilize as much free items as the resort will give us.
