for as long as i can remember i've just wanted a small beach ceremony with about 30 people and then to just call it a day. my fiancee and i have decided to do this, but then thought about how we should do something
after for our guests instead of just leaving...seems kind of awkward.
After talking with family and friends, a common suggestion is to have a fire on the beach with a little bit of cookout food so the people we are closest to could just enjoy each other's company for awhile, and then we would leave. I'm not up for the whole traditional reception so this really sounded like a great idea to me.
I'm just curious what all your thoughts are! Is this a good idea? Will guests like it? Or is it too different that it just will seem weird and breaking some kind of etiquette?
