Hello Vegas wedding experts! We are having a late Saturday morning wedding and with a brunch reception at Wicked Spoon. We expect all of the wedding festivities to be done by 2pm, and lots of our guests are asking...then what are we doing!?
As for me, I would be THRILLED to be done with wedding obligations at 2pm in the afternoon for a destination wedding. However, most etiquette books and websites I'm reading say that for a destination wedding we should at least plan some activities for our guests to opt into. So if we're done at 2pm, photographer gone.... then what? The only thing I have come up with is doing the High Roller ferris wheel, but that doesn't sound too exciting to me even, they say it's best at night, we'd have to transport everyone there, and each pod holds 40 people (we're expecting 50). Any other thoughts on activities post-reception (even if they are just "suggested"?) We may call whatever it is an informal after-party.
Way later on, my fiance and I think it would be nice/fun to do a romantic dinner alone that night...so nothing too crazy during the day. But I'm also concerned about how to transition from "after party" to dinner time, and also I don't want people to feel obligated to stick around if they'd rather do something on their own.
