    Default Wedding update!

    Hello Everyone!

    First of all a HUGE thank you for all your suggestions and ideas! I was

    talking to my daughter and she agreed to a church wedding/reception. She called

    Friday afternoon and for she got a quote for 730.00. I am so hoping that was for

    both the wedding and the rental of the reception hall in the back of the church.

    Its huge! Has anyone here had a wedding reception ina church hall? This is a

    Methodist church .. I am going to call them first thing Monday morning to book

    it but I am wondering if you can have a D.J. at a church? Dancing? I know no

    alcohol which suits me fine anyhow. That way I dont have to worry about drunk

    driving and accidents with people! Besides the expense! I just hope it will be

    fun... Any thoughts?

    Far and away the most beautiful wedding and

    reception I've ever been to was in a Methodist

    church. It was in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and

    everything about it was absolutely perfect. (The

    couple is still happily married, and about to

    celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary.)



    In my part of the country, receptions are held in

    posh country clubs, and everything is very

    expensive and elegant. However, the most

    beautiful (and, I think, classiest) wedding and

    reception I've ever seen was that one in Iowa,

    which exemplified elegant simplicity.



    I hope your daughter is as happy as they are, and

    that her wedding is as lovely.

    My sister's reception was at a Methodist church hall or community room- no

    alcohol is correct, and we had classical music playing- so I don't know for sure

    about the DJ and dancing....probably depends on the specific church.

    If they say no, you've just saved even <more> money!LOL

    Hi Debbie
    You can have a DJ and dancing. You are correct no alcohol. My son had his in the church hall and I did most of the decorating. It depends on the type of tables they have available and how many they have of each. I have read all the threads to your request and I have one suggestion. If your family is large and the family is like mine you can word the invitation to the reception so that those how would like to contribute to the festivities can bring a dish to share. Some of the best dinners I have ever had is Pot luck suppers( you never know what you will receive). They can bring a gift to but some families (like mine) the first thing they ask is what can I bring.
    Oops I forgot to mention I am a Methodist and most churches that have good size halls have rental fees unless you are a member and then it is a donation only. It just depends on the church, some have a fee, member or not.

    My son's wedding
    was in red and white so I used red and white linen table clothes on the tables and because they had no round tables I set the tables up in the shape of a diamond ( 4 to a set). I did this so everyone at the tables could see the bridal party. I also had a three sided Gazebo that I set up and decorated with a bed netting and flowers and used a good size barrel covered with a nice table cloth for the cake.
    If you have any further questions you can e-mail me privatly.
