I think this is the question that’s puzzling me the most right now, what do we arrange for the evening guests? Those who are coming to the service it’s easy, that’s a 3 course wedding breakfast but what about those only coming in the evening?
With the venue we have selected we have lots of choices on offer from a small and simple buffet to a carvery or even a hog roast! So my question is, if you were invited as an evening guest to a wedding, would you expect to eat well or would you eat first? If we decide to go for one of the proper meal options instead of the nibbles/snacks ones, should we warn those we invite and let them know what will be happening?
Also, along similar lines, do guests expect a free bar (yes, anyone who does will have a nasty shock at our wedding!) I know that I’m not fussed either way but I don’t know how others feel and what expectations are these days.
So, any help on how to deal with other people’s expectations or should I just blinker myself and not worry about what others might expect?
