I plan on doing a small, intmate ceremony and reception and then a month later having a big casual reception (we have HUGE families and so many friends). Were doing this because we want our actual wedding day to be focused on the vows and want to take our time with photos and a lot of private time. In other words we don’t want to be stressed and overwhelmed. I’ve talked to newly weds and they wish thye had done this!
I didn’t plan on having a bridal shower because I thought it would be tacky since they weren’t invited to the wedding, but my Mother is upset that I’m not planning on one. She thinks since I’m having a reception for people to come to I should be able to have one. Honestly, I don’t like being the center of attention so I don’t have to have one. But on the other hand I could regret it later.
So bees, what are your thoughts is this tacky or is it ok since I’m having a reception later on?
