We did this and because we had 60+ people joining us for dinner, the restaurant gave us the use of a function room, then a family member offered to do the music. It was all very informal and really nice.

This is my idea of a perfect wedding. Small, intimate with close loved ones. Absolutely perfect!

I was just thinking about whether this would be okay the other day I asked my DP what he thought of inviting everyone we feel obligated to to the ceremony and having a specifically worded accompaniment to the invitation explaining that our 'reception' is inviting everyone who would like to join us and our immediate families at X restaurant, drinks, entrees and dessert (CAKE) only included, (mains extra), please RSVP numbers, and he thought it was a brilliant idea, and weeded out all the hangers on and only coming for free foods and drinks, and will save us a ****-ton of money. Fantastic plan. Everyone who doesn't like the idea won't come, and that's fine with us

We got married at 10am (church) then had a lunch with family and close friends at a nearby restaurant. We had some of the usual reception stuff like cutting a cake (mainly cos I love cake) but no speeches or dancing.
It was awesome, the whole thing was done by about 3:30pm. We ended up backing up with drinks at a wine bar with some friends then DH and I went out for dinner and to a hotel.
Who wants to spend their wedding night watching 100 rellies/mates get smashed and having to chat to great aunt Norma? Not me! I had a new husband to 'get to know'

We got married at 11am and had a 'high tea' reception. We had about 80 guests.
We loved it. No big sit down dinner - we're not those kind of people.
You need to do whatever will make you and hubby to be happy. Don't worry about what anyone else will think. It's YOUR day!!
