After wedding Dinner party

Sarah & Bryan’s Over-The-Top Dinner Party

Sarah & Bryans Over The Top Dinner Party | A Practical WeddingA few weeks back, after I posted this amazing wedding, lots of commenters did a little jig of joy, pointing out that there are very few resources and models for parents getting married. With that in mind, I am thrilled to share Sarah and Bryan’s Seattle dinner cruise wedding. The pictures of the bride and groom with their son melt my heart.
Couples Names: Sarah & Bryan

Ceremony/Reception: Parsons Garden/Royal Argosy Cruises
What Made Your Wedding Creative: Since most of our guests were from out of town and first time Seattle visitors we thought it would be perfect to have the ceremony at a historic Seattle park and then a dinner cruise reception on the Puget Sound. It’s a fantastic way to take in the city.Sarah & Bryans Over The Top Dinner Party | A Practical Wedding the breathtaking sunset and Mt. Rainier. Plus it was a full moon. Everyone was so grateful and commented on what a unique and creative idea it was.
What made your Wedding Thrifty: We concentrated on the Big Picture and nixed a lot of little details. We decided against a cake since our buffet included a dessert bar. Our ceremony flowers became the reception flowers. My shoes came from my closet and my best friend made my jewelry.Sarah & Bryans Over The Top Dinner Party | A Practical Wedding It included tray passed hors d’oeuvres, a dinner buffet, open bar and a DJ or band. Also, using a public park for the ceremony was very budget friendly. We were able to do the entire wedding for around $9, 000.
What Made Our Wedding Sane: My husband and I had dated for 10 years prior to getting married so we already had a great deal of history together. We met when we were 16! We also have a 20 month old son, so the wedding day was more about celebrating our love and unifying our family than stressing over color schemes and monograms. Our guest count was 60, which was a very manageable number. It allowed for quality time with each person rather than an endless receiving line. We knew that we also wanted to kick back and enjoy ourselves so we opted against the traditional wedding events of toasts, cake cutting, bouquets/garter toss and the YMCA. Instead it was more of an over the top dinner party.
Congratulations to all three of you! I love the idea of thinking about a wedding as a over the top dinner party. I, for one, have a million ideas for wildly extravagant dinner parties that I’d love to throw, all of which would cost a fraction of the cost of the average wedding.

Too many parties

by Manners-in-Edmonton

See my earlier post about why it is for the women.
Some brides have MULTIPLE showers...one for their family, one for friends, and one for "b-list" people who may or may not come to the wedding. These brides are gift-whores (pardon my French).
I know some people who have an engagement party, one or more bridal showers, a bachellorette party, the rehersal dinner (if in the wedding party) the wedding, and then a "gift opening" (tres tacky IMHO) the day after the wedding. That is a crap-load of parties when all the gifts and attention are going one way! :p
I say skip shower, go to wedding

A wedding like that should be right after lunch

by vivaELvino

And be done early enough to allow for dinner plans.
I had one of those- early afternoon- some passed aps with a buffet spread to go with, and cake-along with beer and wine. Everyone had a great time.
I think plenty of good food/drink and some nice music is the most important thing for any good party.

Just at a wedding

by signbook

Just a thought...I was just at a wedding this weekend where the sign in book was more of a scrap book.
The first few pages were pictures of the couple moving into their first apartment, pics of vacations etc. It was done scrap book style with decorations, mementos etc.
There were also photos of the various parties (bridal etc).
Then the pages were decorated with headers that said 'guests'. They had a polaroid camera that floated around and picks of the guests were taken at the rehersal dinner and at the hotels. The next day, before the wedding, they were glued in with some confetti and hotel stuff

My wedding story was pretty bad

Classy parents on my part, they come and stay at out house, eat out food, drink our drinks.. sure! That's why we stocked up.
BUT then they go to the van they rented and drink their own also with out offering.
My mother was late with the flower girl and ring boy, held up the wedding.
My sister the MOH walked so slow that the orchestra had to slow down.
Step fathers speech was LETS GET DRUNK! after all the other heart felt ones..
Sister was MOH and she fought with DH, cried, ran off when dinner was being served

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
