Hi everyone! My FH and I are planning a small wedding (16 people) at San Francisco city hall for November 2021. The wedding location is good to go but I am having one heck of a time trying to plan a reception due to Covid as many restaurants we were interested in for the reception have permanently closed or are not booking receptions (even for the end of next year) as of right now. I also feel that renting a big hall would be a waste of money because there would hardly be anyone to fill it and we are not wanting a big dance or anything like that. I have been considering moving our sofas and other furniture to our garage and setting up tables in our living room (we don’t have a back yard) to have the reception at our house. Would that be tacky?
Also, soups are one of our favorite things (especially in Fall) and I really want to serve it at our little reception. I would love to have a soup bar and offer like 3 or 4 different kinds of soup, and was thinking that salads and some little sandwiches would be good to along with it. There would also be cake and drinks. Our reception would start at 2 pm.
Has anyone seen soup at a reception before? What are your thoughts on this idea?
