I like the idea! I think if you had a destination wedding (particularly if it’s small) some of the guests will use it as am excuse to vacation & stay there.

 

We are doing a super small sunrise ceremony, a backyard reception the next day & then leaving at 4:30a the next day for our honeymoon. No one has complained about not being invited to the ceremony & have mostly been really respectful of it’s tiny intimate nature

If you’re not doing a destination wedding why don’t you just have the private ceremony and backyard reception in the same day and leave for the honeymoon the next day?  I’m don’t understnd the need to separate them.

If you have a destination wedding (I did) people won’t leave. They stay as long as you stay so that’s why we are going to Hawaii for honeymoon..

macielilla:  But it’s only formal or semi formal if you make it that way.  Plenty of people have church weddings and BBQ type receptions.  I went to one last year in fact and it was lovely.
