To keep cost down me and my partner want to get married late afternoon and skip having a wedding breakfast and just have a cheese and meats buffet at the evening do, has anyone else done this? What's your thoughts, Does it go down ok with guests?

Cheese and meats buffet sounds good to me. I think it is important to do what suits your budget and to be honest I think people can go overboard with food and a lot of it gets wasted. Enjoy your planning.

I think it sounds a lovely idea. It's about what you and your partner want as it's your day, I'm sure your guests will just be happy being there and with whatever you do x

i love this idea, cheese and meat buffet sounds perfect too, we arent really having a wedding dreakfast either we are having a quiet meal with the few guests at crantock, guests are paying for themselves and we are paying for ourselves, they can order what they want then. we are having a party when we get home which will have a buffet but thats it, its your day do what makes you happy x

This is what we're doing! I was thinking just buffet, tho my mum is trying to say we need something more substantial if no 'proper meal'. Like others have said, its your day, if that's how you want things then that's great ☺

A lot of venues now do 'twilight weddings' where you have the wedding later on in the day and have buffet instead of sit down meal. If you have your wedding later people probably won't want a massive meal as they will have eaten before!

I considered this but I didn't like the idea of spending most of my wedding day without my OH. We are getting married at 1pm now.
