we going to be quite traditional - old fashioned clothing, in a church, classical music, traditional vows...
but we are having an early afternoon ceremony then an afternoon tea 'cocktail' reception rather than a sit down dinner that goes til late. we are serving hot soup that my dad is making with bread rolls, lots of savoury pastries, and then buns and cakes from the local bakery.
we are having mingling/eating/talking for a little while, then speeches, cake and dancing straight after each other, some more mingling, then we are nicking off to our hotel at about 6pm for a three course dinner in our room, 2 blockbuster movies with popcorn and a bottle of wine or 6 pack of beer and 30minute in room massage (which we'll prob have in the morning) See why we wanted to blow the idea of a late sit down dinner!!
oh and we arent having wedding cars since no one will really see them anyway, and the only thing that would go with the era is a horse and carriage, but it will be winter and could rain, so we are saving the expense and hassle and just going with white Mazda 6s which FHs parents and friends are lending us
