Anyone gotten married at home?

Answered 2 years ago

Me and my fiancé were thinking about getting married at home. We would invite close family and friends only but would be about 60 people including ourselves and our children. We were thinking of inviting everyone over for a bbq and then telling them that we are getting married that day. We don’t want presents and we don’t want the whole big fuss. We would have the ceremony set up outside and then the reception inside. It’s a surprise wedding just to avoid all the fuss and keep it on a budget. Has anyone done this before and how did it all go?

Only issue is people can blow off just a BBQ because they don't feel like going. Tell them it's a wedding or you could be disappointed

As long as you keep that in mind, and don't set yourself up with expectations that everyone will attend your bbq, it should be OK

I haven't but my friend did. It was at their unit (20guests) and they had a small catered buffet. It was really simple but also very nice. They're divorced now but at least the wedding was lovely 😂

My wife and I had our ceremony in a nearby harbour front park with a very small service (didn't need to book for council or anything as it was so small just immediate family). Then we had the reception at our house with friends / family. All up we spent about $3900 on celebrant, catering/alcohol (50ppl), makeup/hair, clothes etc.. It was a magical night and we have no regrets.
