So me and my fiance are thinking we want to get married next summer. We are both senior college students and an interatial couple, he is Mexican and I am American. We were thinking of having a small civil ceremony here and our church ceremony in Mexico later on. We want to have a fun reception like we would if we had a church ceremony but I’m not sure if it would be silly to get a nice simpler wedding gown for our reception and wear a simple short dress for the ceremony, is that silly? Our mexico wedding may not be for a while so i wanted this to still be fun for my family and what familyhe has here in the states….any suggestions?
Would love to hear from anyone :)!

@Inzie09: I think that that plan sounds great. A lot of people on the bee have a civil ceremony and then a reception. I think it’s a good way to include your local friends and family. And you can always wear your dress for your reception for your church ceremony in Mexico too if you wanted. It’s also possible to have an intimate wedding ceremony at home even if it is civil if you want. I don’t think it’ll be a problem at all.

Buy a great tea length ivory dress for your Civil Ceremony with a nice feathered hair clip and a bird cage veil. You can change your hair clip to a nice rhinestone clip without the veil and dance the night away at your reception. You can wear the dress again on your honeymoon in Mexico and for your Mexican ceremony, do wear a nice gown with a long, traditional veil and tiara. Get a dress that is long, but simple, so that you could wear it again. See my suggestions below. I’m in NY, if you need a coordinator or planner, do let me know! Best of luck to your and your beloved!!! The dresses are from David’s bridal. You can see them online. Lise of my beloved wed and art dot com 917 796 8499
