Okay so my FI and I are going to Hawaii, just the two of us, and my mom is going to throw us a reception when we get back from our honeymoon. I need some help with 1) wording for the invitation since its just the reception and 2) some ideas of what to do at said reception. It's going to be small, only about 60 people and there may or may not be a dance but no formal one (no first dance, mother/daughter etc). All we've come up with so far is to have dessert, play the newlywed game, have open-mic memory sharing/toasts, share a video of our ceremony on the beach, and maybe a bonfire (it's all gonna be outdoors and we have a bonfire pit, dance floor, gazebo, and boardwalk available to us). Does any of that sound dumb/cheesey? Do you have any ideas on activities, music, or invitations? I'll take all the help I can get!
Next, any suggestions on where I can get my dress altered here in Lincoln?
Lastly, the idea for music was to hook up the iPod to a speaker tower or something but I have no idea where to rent them or the equipment to do so...ideas?
