OK snarky brides, I need your opinion on this one. Would you side-eye a wedding that cut cost corners but had a live band for cocktail hour? The cost cutting would be having disposable cups/plates/utensils, a barbecue buffet, and a signature cocktail + beer/wine instead of a full bar.
Basically, is it weird to have a laid-back or casual reception with a live band for part of it? The band is old timey Americana (fiddle, mandolin, trumpet, stand-up bass, guitar), and the wedding reception is in a restored barn. We're going for a down-home classy vibe, if that makes sense. What do you think?
