Have any of you had or planned for a wedding without a full reception? My mother-in-law thinks the reception should only be for cake cutting and eating. No need for a full meal and first dance. I am perfectly fine without it, but has anyone else thought to nix the traditional essentials?
We do want to do a photoshoot per sé with all the guests (30-40) and esp the bride and groom and parents but not much besides cake and coffee/tea.
What do you all think? Any suggestions on how to go about doing this?
