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!
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.
