my fiance and i are planning a june wedding and we want a sort of fun easy-going atmosphere. we are not super sure we want dancing (outside of the traditional dances, bride/groom, bride/father, etc). we are still not set on the venue which makes the planning a little tricky but i am still brainstorming ideas. i would love for the ceremony to be outside and the reception to be in a renovated barn type space. i need ideas for what to do at the reception instead of a dance party. some possibilties i'm already thinking of are: photo area with my polaroid and a chalkboard to write on/props; cupcakes and an ice cream bar; and my fiance mentioned corn hole so maybe that plus, crochet, horse shoes.. i'm not entirely sure. i want it to feel like a fun party bringing our family and friends together and i want them to have a great time but i also don't want it to become so casual that is doesn't feel like a wedding.
hope that all makes sense, any ideas/advice would be great! thanks!
oh and we are on a tight budget!
