I have absolutely NO rhythm and hate to dance. I have been dreading the thought of a reception, it is one of the reasons we have put off setting a date for our wedding. What are some ideas of things to do instead of a reception? I was kind of thinking about renting a section of a local lake beach. Everyone can have hotdogs and hamburgers and swim and stuff. Does this sound stupid? And how would you include some of the traditional reception things outside of the dancing?
