I was at a wedding reception earlier this evening. The grand-daughter of very good friends of my parents was getting married. It was mostly standing only for around 1000 guests (which these days is considered big but not huge), which quite a few buffet stations inside the hotel ballroom and just outside of it.
The only dancing was done by a group of 5, at the beginning of the reception. It was a performance of a traditional dance. Like a lot of receptions here, it started at 7pm and was expected to continue till 10pm. Any kind of partying might be held another day.
The newlyweds and their parents (and in this case the maternal grandparents, too, who were the hosts of the evening since the reception was help at their hotel) were on a stage (literally). Guests would go up to give their congratulation, then go down to head for the buffets and socialize. After they've finished dinner they go home.
If you are married, what kind of wedding and reception did you have? Was it big or small? Did you organize yourself, did your family help you, did you use the services of a wedding organizer?
If you are not yet married, how do you imagine your wedding day to be?
