First time posting My fiancé and I are having a beach ceremony followed by pictures, cocktail hour and dinner reception. Thinking of a plated course dinner, looking at a max of 20 to 25 immediate family and friends. We will have welcome gift bags when they arrive. We will be introduced with a first dance, eat, toast to finish with dad/daughter dance and cake cut. I want guest to take home things from a dessert bar as well at end of night. The reception is in a really cool private intimate room/garden area at a restaurant .
I was wondering for those of you that had small weddings how did you end or exit the night? Does this sound like a nice timeline? I was trying to think of how to flow into an exit when the evening is winding down. Is it still wise to have an MC to finish the night in a few dances. Thanks in advance!
