    So my fiance' and I are completely opposite on our choice for hosting the reception. He wants an outdoor reception but I would much more prefer an indoor one. Are there any compromises that you can think of that might make us both happy?  :(

      maybe you can have cocktail hour outdoors and the rest of the reception indoors.

        I like Mufin's suggestion. You could also consider doing a reception dinner indoors and then maybe moving it outside for a bonfire or wish lanterns to end the evening?

        Where is your wedding location?  We decided to do ours inside because it gets very windy by the beach at night, and if it's not windy, there's mosquitos.....

          See if your resort/venue offers a covered terrace or something that will provide a bit of a feel of both.  This very topic was a huge point of discussion for me and my now husband.  I didn't want outdoors because I was too nervous if there would be inclement weather that would force us to move the reception indoors and my oh so very carefully planned details for the vision of our wedding would all be for nothing, lol.  Keep in mind most venues will have a back-up plan anyway which they'll go thru with you so you don't have to worry about it but I just wanted to know there was one plan that I knew all the details behind and that was it.  We ended up having our ceremony outside at the beach gazebo which we both had agreed upon anyway, and our reception was in a covered terrace with 2 open walls so we still had somewhat of an outdoor feeling.  The "lounge area" for the guests was right by one of the open walls so there was a nice breeze with beautiful palm trees etc just a few feet away and folks could wander out there if they wanted to.  Good luck!
