We haven’t done any planning yet, but it looks like we will do a private elopment and an at-home reception. Our families haven’t met yet, either. I think we would do an informal (but somewhat dressy) catered dinner with drinks, cake and music on the ipod with maybe 25 people.  I expect that only my parents and siblings would travel to attend.

I have friends who are having a very small ceremony and then having an at-home reception in their parents backyard the next day. She’s wearing her dress and they will have it catered and get a tent, etc. So, at-home, but not completely informal.

I was planning a reception at home about 6 weeks after the elopment (everyone knows about it), but when my numbers got to 100+ and friends and family planned on flying out, I decided it was too much and getting too big.  I had planned on having it at a venue and catered.  I decided to think it over for a month and then decide.  Wedding in September 2012.
