@futuremrsmw:  Why not have your wedding in the Church with cake and punch after? Assuming the bulk of your guests will not be flying to Vegas, it’s nice to feed them for coming to watch you get married!

Personally, I’m not sure if I would fly to Vegas with you… But I live pretty far on the East coast! If you live in LA and the flight is $50 and only takes an hour, I’d be up for it then!

I agree! If a full out reception isn’t for you, don’t do it. I would be totally fine with a small cake and punch reception after, or going out to dinner, whatever you wanted. Nothing is cheesy – the whole point is to spend some time together and celebrate with you after the ceremony. Some people even have receptions weeks/months after they are married!

@futuremrsmw:  We had a luncheon after our Church ceremony! It was cheap, and it would leave you plenty of time to make it to Vegas for your first night as man and wife! But if you don’t want a big formal to-do, I definitely wouldn’t feel obligated to have one!
