I am going to have mine at a park/hall that is dedicated for weddings/receptions. My mom is getting it for free through her work. Its nice because they have a beachy area, but its on a lake. They have a HGUE gazebo type thing that can hold up to 200 people. I am going to do cheap decorations such as tulle, and white lights. I am also using my wedding bouquets for decorations. Possibly set up vases and just stick them in the vases around on different tables.
What did you wear? I am going to wear a second more casual wedding dress. Probably something short or tea length
Did you ask your guests to dress up? I am not going to ask them to dress up. Casual wear.
HOW did you do a slide show your house - and was it indoor or outdoor? We are doing ours outdoors, and I haven't really come up with a way to show the photos from our wedding yet. We may be hiring a DJ and if we do that, they would have the equipment. If not, we are going to have to figure something else out.
Did you do a cake cutting? We are going to get a cake, but I dont plan on doing a formal cake cutting. I want to have cake as the dessert, and have it displayed (as another decoration). But we aren't doing anything fancy, so I dont want to do the cake cutting again.
Did you play music? We are going to have music and there will be a designated dance floor. My family loves to boogie! haha
What else did you do besides eat and drink?? We are going to have a BBQ buffet. To drink we will have the typical water and soda, but we are going to get a few kegs of beer, and wine. I am going to informally tell people if they want liquor, they can bring it, but it wont be provided.
What else can you tell me that is creative and have not thought of at all? Vases with water, cand and shells is pretty. And you can put a floating candle on top. That should be relatively inexpensive. I just threw a baby shower and got about 8 BIG vases at our dollar store! They were nice! I think we are actually going to use those for our AHR. If I get any other ideas, I will let you know.
