Looking to get married soon, we are thinking of having a small wedding maybe something like a afternoon tea, but does it seem rude if we don't have a reception party, feel like I'm going to invite ppl who some live about a hour away but does it seem rude, or any ideas what else we could do many thanks
No I don't think its rude if that's what you want to do, it's your day. I'm sure your friends and family will happily attend too x
It's not rude at all, we got married last Saturday (29/7/17) we had a 3 course carvery after and it was perfect for us. We were done by 3pm so guest had the rest of there day to enjoy themselves and do as they wanted. Everyone said what a lovely wedding it was :) x
We're getting married at 3 and having a evening reception only with a buffet. We have family coming from an hour away
Not rude at all. I went to a wedding last year, I think there were probably 40 people and it was lovely. We had a sit down meal but it was chilled and because it was smaller we could chat and chill out.
Sounds lovely. We got married and went for a meal in a private room at a restaurant - only 30 of us. We did have a reception but a couple of days later (though it wouldn't have ruined our celebrations if we hadn't had it - our service and meal were perfect). Do what you want, after all it's your day. Have a lovely day whatever you decide
Hi it's not rude there are lots of weddings that are having afternoon tea now :)
It's not rude at all, it's your day to do what you like x
Not rude at all. It's your day and you should do what suits you both x
We are getting married next year and are having a wedding brunch in the afternoon for about 50 close family & friends small interment everybody thinks it's a great idea . Hope this helps
Not at all, we're doing the same and my family live all the way in Dublin. I'd understand why it might be a problem in our case but I won't be offended if they can't all make it as it's a long way to go for a small event, but I'd be miserable being the centre of a crowd for a longer day. An hour away shouldn't raise any eyebrows, if it does just say the traditional earlier weddings are more in keeping with the sentiment of weddings than all night parties!
Not rude at all. If it puts your mind at ease, make them aware on the invite that you are having afternoon tea, but they are coming to see you - not for the food
I am doing just that. An afternoon wedding followed by an afternoon tea . Having a cheap curry/pizza evening meal at our local con club. Everyone who wants to wish us well is welcome to pop by.
I don't think it's rude at all. Your friends and family will be delighted you are tying the knot and who doesn't like an afternoon tea? Also family travelling will mean that could still get home if they didn't want to pay for accommodation. Friends of mine married recently and did this instead of a wedding breakfast and as a bit of comedy got a friend at each table to Don a pinny and serve the table.
