Whenever a couple comes to me with an idea that I have never dealt with, I like to consult the board because 1) someone has dealt with a similar idea and 2) I usually get good advice.
I am working with a couple in their 30s who plan to get married in the summer of 2016. The family of the bride-to-be have place on the shore, I think in a resort town in North Carolina, but don't hold me to that. The bride was thinking that she would like to get married there, since she spent many happy summers there. The couple is thinking about a late morning/early afternoon church ceremony to be followed by a reception. Since the couple is older, they were thinking about an informal reception. We were batting around ideas, and I innocently suggested a clambake on the beach, never thinking that they might go for idea. Well, they are enthusiastic about the idea of a clambake reception.
In case you are interested, she will either wear a simple white wedding dress that can be worn to the reception; or she will change into something comfortable for reception.
So the question is has one ever been to or organized a wedding reception that was a clambake. Any ideas good or bad or just general comments would be appreciated.
Thanking everyone in advance
