• A guy who works at vendor we deal with got married at some estate on Long Island yesterday. It's not tacky at all, saves a lot of driving around and the possiblity of guests getting lost two times. A preacher isn't tied to a church building and the banquet hall may afford more seating, better lighting and sound system for the ceremony.
  • I don't think that's tacky at all. Just remember that it's your wedding. If other people don't like what you do, that's their problem. Congratulations on the upcoming nuptials!!
  • It's your wedding. Do what you want.
  • It's your wedding, you do whatever you want no matter what ne one else says. Negative responses...they r haters:P
  • well its cheaper and who cares its youre weding you do what you want to do its youre day to shine and do not let others decide things for you all that matters is that you are happy :)
  • G'day Anonymous, Thank you for your question. It's your wedding so have it in a place that you and your partner like. My father got married in the cathedral in Goulburn Australia and had his reception in the church hall. There's no problem with that at all. Regards
  • I have been to 2 such events..They were both lovely, They weren't tacky at all...The marriage ceremony was held in one room, very nicely done, not tacky, and then the reception was held in another room. Both beautiful.
  • I'm doing the same. Tell them it will save on gas. I did it because I wanted all my vendors to know and love each other-or at least know what to expect from each other. If I have any complaints or requests I can go to one place to do it. Congratulations! : )
  • Not at all. If fact I think it's a good idea, easier on everyone. My son and his fiance are getting married in her father's church. He is the pastor of a HUGE church and the fact my son (the rebel) is marrying a preacher's daughter is still beyond my comprehension..but I am off topic. They will have the ceremony in the main building and then the reception will be in the banquet room. I will be very tasteful and lovely.
  • I've been to many lovely weddings that hda both combined. If you don't need or want to be married in a certain church or location and want it somewhere all in one, that's great. Let the partying begin!!!!
  • It is your wedding, don't let others talk you out of your plans or you will regret it later. I have been in your shoes, which is why we are renewing our vows next summer. Do what you please and screw what other ppl think, it's your and your SO day not theirs, and if they are there to support your union then they should shut their mouths and not make it hard on you in this stress filled time. Tell them to mind their own business unless THEY want to pay for it. Good luck;-}
  • now if you had your wedding night at the same place ...
  • I went to a great wedding/reception party.It was so touching and the feeling didnt go away after as we did not have to drive to the reception,wait for an hour and then welcome the couple.It was as if the couple stayed with us the whole time and we all rejoiced together.We were a large group and we also took a floor of hotel rooms.Great wedding!
  • Have your wedding and reception the way YOU want it. You'll never do this again. Please yourself. It's your wedding after all.
  • I think its a good idea and more importantly its what you and your partner wish for. If someone else has a problem with it thats not your problem. Better to have fewer guest who wholeheartedly wish you and your partner the very best than a reception area full of hypocrites. all the very best for your married life.
  • I had my wedding and reception at the same place and it was beautiful.
  • I went to a wedding like that a couple months ago. It actually turned out brilliantly.
  • Thats the best way in my mind! ... but my opinion doesn't matter - it's only the B&G that count!
  • I had my wedding and reception at the same place. I think it's easier on the guests not to have to drive to another place (especially for those from another city, state, or country). A wedding is a celebration of your union, not an event meant to fit other people's standards. Do what YOU want, and they can take it or leave it! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!
  • I did it too and it was absolutely fine. YOUR wedding = YOUR decisions...I wish you all the best!!! ;-)
  • I think it is an awesome idea, not tacky at all. Let the celebration commence!
  • i think it should be against the law to give someone negative feedback on their wedding, why people feel the need to try and spoil things is beyond me. i think this is a great idea and is becoming more and more popular. ignore anyone giving you negative feedback, they are mean
  • I am having my ceremony and reception at the same place. My guestsw are saying thats a great idea because you dont need to worry about the travel in between. The guests can relax nd enjoy the whole day...
  • I don't think so. We are doing the same thing. Hopefully having the wedding outside then moving the reception inside but with the weather where we live it could all be inside. It's cheaper and saves gas.
