I need ideas. Throw em out there. Everything I've though of feels awkward.
We're having a Micro wedding one weekend, then a large reception the next.
The reception is out of town with everyone driving. So were opening the hall at 3:00 (Local hotels check in time) for visiting, which is nice, extra visiting time with a huge party and after COVID etc . Cocktails probably 5, dinner 6 ish.
We will be there even earlier, cleaning, decorating, visiting with wedding party etc. So we will be catching all the people as they start funneling in around 3.
Then hang out with everyone as they show up, (what else are we going to do)?
Then leave? change, walk back in? Is that weird? feels weird. do it part way through cocktails? just as they start? wait till the place starts looking busy?
I totally want the grand entrance and everyone around and just the big fuss.
Any suggestions? How can we do this?
