How did you work around the ceremony and evening? Was it an awkward atmosphere with minimal people? In total, there will be 26 guests, 12 which are children. Even to the reception. All of which are family members (excluding both sides of parents). We don't really socialise with others outside of family, and it would be pointless inviting the people we do talk to, for the sake of filling spaces. Ideally, I'd like an outdoor wedding in an estate garden, with a marquee of some kind for a BBQ/buffet. As family will be travelling from 2 different towns/cities, I was maybe thinking teepee camping as an option instead of needing to drive home or finding hotels.
