I am having trouble planning my reception location and times. I have a large group of 100-120 people and we are on a budget.
Our ceremony is planned for 5pm at the Tucan Gazebo.
I originally planned to have the cocktail hour at Tucan terrace and reception in the ballroom.
But then I started hating the ballrooms and didnt want to spend a ton of money trying to decorate it.
I moved the reception to the Carribbean terrace (rooftop) but we ouutgrew the space.
So then I asked to have the cocktail and reception at the Grand Terrace. And our timeline would be as follows:
Reception 7-10 (10 is the latest we can go)
My concern is that with a three hour reception, there wont be enough time to have everything done, dances, cake cutting, toasts, and party.
I just need some help.
We are having a welcome dinner the night before and I am thinking of hiring our videographer for it and we can do speeches then.
Any help would be highly appreciated. I am kind of feeling like I shouldve stuck to the ballroom, as I know my guests will want to keep the party going.
