1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Very Small Informal Wedding on: December 15, 2009 02:10:54 PM
I recently got engaged and we are planning on a small wedding (only about 12 guests). we are both outdoorsy people so we are considering having it outside. Any ideas for locations? (We also are on a very small budget)

We will have a reception or a party, hopefully, at our new house, after we return from our honeymoon with other friends and family. Which presents the problem of family with children and rowdy friends. Is there some way we can have a reception from 1-4 (?) for everyone and let friends know that they can stay later. (There will be beer and anyone drinking can stay)

Because of the small guest list we also need to find a way to announce the wedding to the rest of the family, make sure there is no confusion about what they are and are not invited to, and hurt as few feelings as possible.

Any input would be great! Thanks!

EDIT:
Everyone would be invited to the entire party, but I'd just like to let people know that after a certain time (probably later in the evening) it may not be appropriate for children. (not sure how to word that, but I know some of our friends may get out of hand) And also, I'd like to let friends know that if they have been drinking, they are welcome to stay.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Gift help on: October 01, 2009 12:52:52 PM
I'm getting ready for Christmas already, because the weather is cooling and it's making me think of winter, and since I don't have a lot of money, I'll probably be making a lot of the gifts, and it may take a while.

I did homemade candies and baked goods last year for my boyfriends family. I'm pretty sure they appreciated it, but should I do the same thing again this year (different items)?

I don't know what else to get them, them being his parents and his brother/brother's girlfriend and his grandma.

Any thoughts?
