First I should start off by saying that both FI and my family are offbeat and not big into the "normal" way of doing most things. My FI and I are getting married in a small romantic garden themed wedding in our own back yard but I have always kind of had a dream to have it at twilight when the sun is going down and candles all around but being that the wedding in July this would end up being very late (sun set it 930 or so). I was thinking of doing a backwards wedding where the family would have a reception before the wedding, we would visit and eat and all the other stuff you do aftet the wedding then the wedding party would get changed and ready for the sun set wedding. After we got married we would have cake and other treats and drinks but I am unsure if this could work and am leaning to just sucking it up and doing it early. I should point out that one of the reasons for the backwards idea and not just having a late wedding is that I live in the city and as with most towns being loud after 10 can get you a visit from the police officers in the area, I don't think anyone would care or turn us in but I would hate for it to happen. What do you guys think??
