Wedding/reception tips, anyone?

The soon-to-be-Mrs. and I have a wedding coming up in about six months, and we're in the planning stages right now. Married members - what do you know now (about wedding planning) that you wish you had known then? What are the little things that we should be thinking of now, but aren't? Others - what were some little things that you remember about weddings you've attended? What worked, and what didn't?

A brief overview: We've already booked a church and a minister and cleared the date with our families, groomsmen, and bridesmaids. It's a Sunday afternoon wedding - ceremony at 4:00, reception immediately thereafter in the church, and an afterparty (for close friends and family) at a bar or similar drinking-enabled facility which we will rent out. We're looking at about 200 or so at the wedding and reception, and maybe 75 at the afterparty. We want to focus our limited financial resources on the reception/afterparty rather than the ceremony itself.
We're having the wedding in Madison, WI, so on the off-chance that any Madison residents read this, any ideas for where to hold the afterparty?
