Our wedding is planned for 6/21/14, and our ceremony/reception is at a wooded resort. The reception hall, and 5 cabins are all mine for the weekend. Now let me say, it is a small wedding and 95% family. My question is this, I was thinking of having a 12:00 ceremony and a lunch reception to follow. It will cut my food bill in half plus some. The caterer I have chosen also does BBQ. My fiancee and I are very outdoorsy, and are both very simple people.
I don't know if it is acceptable or frowned upon to have an early ceremony and lunch reception. Because we have all of the property and my close family are mainly staying in the cabins, I was thinking about continuing the party with a big bonfire after the reception.
I have so many thoughts running through my head, I don't know where to start.
