Wedding Planning – Invitation & Reception

Wedding Reception

The wedding reception wasn’t part of our plan. But Fluffy Bunny decided to gather everyone for lunch after our ceremony. A way to thank them for making all the way to celebrate our marriage.

Choosing a venue for the wedding reception wasn’t easy. There are so many choices to choose from. Initially, we couldn’t decide if we want a lunch or dinner, but after much discussing and asking her sister for advice, we decided on lunch.

Our initial venue to have lunch wedding reception only opens during dinner time on the day of our wedding. Thus we had to research further for other possible location. Checking out menus and reading reviews. Like everyone else, we just want everything to be awesome on our special day. After all, it’s a once in a lifetime event.

As I am typing this entry, we haven yet settle on the venue. But we do have a few in mind. Will be emailing them before confirmation and booking. Gosh… There’s so much to do for a one day event.

Invitation

We wanted to keep this small and within budget. We do not want to spend a whole load of money in celebrating our next milestone. Invitation is a headache I would say because it’s a who shall be on our wedding invitation list.

I wished there’s a guide for us on how to define if this person is worth inviting. As we lay out the names, we realised there are just that few that’s a must to invite. Not to mention, the family which is a must. A few close and mutual friends of ours. Which I think is good enough. We don’t need a huge group of people to be there. After confirming our list of invitation, we decided to personally invite them.

As our wedding is at Australia, Sydney, we gave everyone a dateline to RSVP with us. This is for us to know how many confirmed guests so that we can proceed to book a venue for a lunch wedding reception.
