Anyone having their reception at home?

As we are on a tight budget - we are thinking about getting married in a church and having our reception at our house - hire a marquee and do the catering ourselves. Just very close family to the church and invite a few friends in the evening. The question is will I regret it - will it work out ok with getitng a photographer for dancing etc. Getting married in May - and although it sounds like it could be good - i am not sure!! any advice?


  • Hi we got married last May and had our reception at home. We had 30 to the registry office and they all came back with us then had another 20 come along later in the evening. My mum and i did all the food and we put 2 gazebos up in the garden.

    We had a lovley day and very relaxed party after i had photos taken at the regisrty office then family and friends took lots at the house.
