For many of the venues that we are looking at in Newport, RI the rates are less if the ceremony takes place morning or early afternoon so our whole wedding may be over by 4:00 PM. I like the idea of having an after-party (especially for younger guests) at any time, but especially if we have the whole evening to celebrate!
Booking a whole extra venue for a second reception is out of the budget, so does anyone have advice about where to take the party afterwards? I'm thinking to provide transportation to the hotel where we're staying or the beach. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this! (PS: I'd like to continue wearing my wedding dress for the after-party, is this tacky?)
