We are planning on marrying June 23 and didn’t want a traditional wedding.
We were thinking of having a farewell wedding dinner at a super nice restaurant here in our city, with close family and friends, to say farewell the evening BEFORE we fly off to our destination wedding spot. Is this a good idea? I would love any ideas, opinions, etc.
And we are also relocating to a new city one week after marriage because of employment. So in reality, this is a true farewell dinner before we start our new life together. How appropriate is this?

- Wedding: December 2010 - Al Cielo / La Laguna
Totally a great idea! Some of the best times we had were celebrating with out guests the days before the wedding. There is just this fun excitement and anticipation… Its kind of hard to put into words but soooo fun to share with others.

I love that idea… I would have done that if we didn’t live in a totally different state than the rest of our family.

@may11:We are having a pre wedding send off for about 20 of our closest fam and friends before we leave for our 2 person wedding in Jamaica. They don’t really love the idea of our destination wedding (I have another post about it) but I feel like if we do the send off party just right, everything should work out!
Congrats on your decision to have the scheduled elopement! It was the best thing for my intended and I as well!!!

Just wanted to add, if you go to my profile and look at my posts, you should see one that I started that says “Show me your elopement/intimate wedding for 20 or less guests”. It has pics and stories of ladies who have had small weddings and that are really beautiful and touching. Helped me feel alot better about our small ceremony. Take a peek when you have time!!

I think that is a fantastic idea. Not only because it is before you guys go to get married but also because you will be moving so soon after.
