wedding/marriage?

We are eloping and have a party/dinner later to celebrate and to save on money.
It'll be at a luxury hotel, so there will be a lot of space for tables, a bar, etc.

I want it to be fun and classy all at once so I need help here ladies:

open bar or wine for guests?

a small dinner and a lot of appetizers OR A big dinner and very few appetizers?

Fresh Strawberry Cake or Tiramisu (catered by our fave restaurant)?

Should we have honored guests where the same theme-color?

Instrumental Band OR DJ OR Instrumental band for the dinner portion only and a DJ after that?

semi-formal or formal dress code?

Which ones would be better considering I want it to be extremely fun but I want it to be classy as well.

  • I'll just go down your list and tell you what we did. Mine was semi-formal at the Evergreen Marriott at Stone Mountain Park in Georgia. All 40 guests loved every minute.

    open bar

    dinner was 6 small appetizers, salad, and entree with 2 sides

    pick the dessert the 2 of YOU like best. remember you have to eat it again in a year

    we didn't have any honored guest nor did we request anyone to wear any color. our colors were green and yellow and we made the decorations and dressed the kids in those colors.

    we had a dj for the whole party, but a band may be more classy

    we had a very kid friendly wedding. many guests brought their kids and our table numbers were actually our kids' names.

  • if you are trying to save money and stay classy, maybe you don't want an open bar....with a whole lot of people who are getting drunk, won't be too classy !.....and will cost you a lot of money !

    i love bands, but a dj may be more versatile and maybe cheaper too ?

    i love a buffet style dinner....you can do those up classy if you're careful....

    don't really know about the rest, but that's my 2 cents worth, lol

  • open bar or wine for guests?
    Open bar will geet you lots of drunks lol but will be fun (expensive tho )

    a small dinner and a lot of appetizers OR A big dinner and very few appetizers?
    I would do more appetizers, do it buffet style to incourage conversation

    Fresh Strawberry Cake or Tiramisu (catered by our fave restaurant)?
    Tirimisu!

    Should we have honored guests where the same theme-color?
    no, that is corny lol

    Instrumental Band OR DJ OR Instrumental band for the dinner portion only and a DJ after that?
    I think as DJ would be cheaper and that way you will have more to pick from

    semi-formal or formal dress code?
    Semi- formal
