Serious Wedding Question (UPDATED w/Poll!)

Postby Grayson » Thu Oct 10, 2013 6:40 pm

My wedding is just under a year away. Today my fiancé and I locked down the venue for our wedding and on the drive home we came upon a small dilemma. Prior to visiting the venue we were pretty much set on having seated appetizers for the reception. Now, the idea of hors d'oeuvres is being tossed around and I am curious to see what other people think.

Appetizers vs. Hors d'oeuvres? What's your preference?

I suggest THUNDERDOME for the right to consume foods. And to continue living.

Hots d'oeuvres are nice because they're distributed throughout the crowd and give the illusion that they can have as much as they want. It also helps ensure that your guests eat all the food because the waiters pass the food around.

You're hardly going to eat anything while you're there, so who cares? If it's an open bar, as it should be, your guests will be too bombed to care, or remember the next day.

I guess that I should add the fact that we are keeping the wedding extremely small and intimate. We're trying to shoot for less than 50 people because we would prefer to spend more money on the honeymoon than the wedding itself.

I really like this idea but I suspect that my fiancé will veto it before I can even suggest it too her. Plus, it may be awkward when I start picking favorites... :?

Fighting shouldn't be too much of a problem in this case. We are extremely lucky on most fronts when it comes to this wedding because we agree on most of the important issues. Honestly we weren't opposed to the idea of a quick wedding without any ceremony at all but the family and friends who we are planning on inviting would probably be a little hurt if we did that without them.

I've avoided a good portion of them in my time but this is one that would be hazardous for me to avoid. :P

We're definitely having an open bar. In fact, we also just found out that my favorite local brewery can/will provide the bar in question. 8)

I hear you on doing a traditional wedding for the family - my sister and brother did not do it traditional and while I was going to go to the tropics for a hot wedding, we opted for the traditional as I knew my grandparents wouldn't be able to make the trip ... and in the end they had a blast as did everyone else so we made the right call

Save your money - elope/destination wedding.
That's what we wish we had done.

Her father actually made us that offer. He had a certain amount of money earmarked for the wedding, and we could take it and run or he would spend it on a big church wedding. My opinion was irrelevant because my spoiled princess and her mom were dead set on the big ceremony.

As a serious answer to the OP, I would add two things to consider that might help. Is there an open bar (already answered)? And how well does everybody get along?

Open bar gets people milling about, ready to mingle. If they all get along well and want to talk to each other, then you want to set it up for mingling: Hors d'oeuvres.

On the other hand, if they're relative strangers or they simply don't get along that well, the table provides a safe sanctuary for those that can feel uncomfortable. If that's the majority, Appetizers.

I think I have some kind of a curse when it comes to weddings. All five weddings I have gone to have ended in divorce.
