Yes, we had a city hall wedding. We have not yet had our church wedding.  And like most, we did it for insurance/legal reasons.  We kept the ceremony very unweddingish.  Just me and him and our kids. We dressed up but I did not wear a wedding dress.  We just went out for a nice dinner alone afterwards.  We are saving all of the wedding-y touches for our church wedding. 

But we told everyone we did it that way.   There was no “finding out.”  We explained the reasons to our famiies and friends and they all understood. 

We thought since we are already legally married some people might not be that interested in attending a “wedding,” but we were wrong.  We are asked all the time about the wedding by people who want to be invited.
