For some reason, I've been fixated on the timing of the reception. The ceremony and the reception will be at the same place. We'll be getting married outside on the grass and the food and everything will be inside in the barn. After the ceremony, we'll walk back up the asle toward the barn, then what?
I surfed the Internet looking for timelines of the reception. The Knot has one but I didn't like it. I found this one, that I did like. But everyone talks about cocktail hour. We're not serving cocktails! The site doesn't allow alcohol! So what do I call it? Wait around hour? Of course I'll have drinks available for people, some soft music playing, maybe some snacks. I'm not sure that I want formal pictures anyway. I don't have use for an 8x10 glossy of me and Mr A in our wedding clothes.
The last wedding I went to the Bride and Groom entered the reception and danced their first dance. I'm not a fan of that plan. I think the dancing should all be at the same time. So we enter, we're announced, there are toasts, we eat, we dance. Yeah I think that will work.
OT, but last night when I came home from dinner with M & Mrs W (who is thisclose to popping), there sat Mr A, bald headed! He's shaved his hair numerous times but he usually warns me. I thought I walked into the wrong house! His scalp has been bothering him so he thought loosing the hair might help. We'll see.
