My fiancee is from the UK, and I live in the US. We decided on him coming here for our wedding. We are going to go to San Fransisco and get married at the city hall. However, when we come back to New Jersey, I would like to have some kind of reception so I don’t dissapoint my parents and friends. We also want to do the same in the UK for his family and friends. How would we go about announcing that? How far in advance? Thanks in advance! 🙂

If you’re actually eloping, i.e. it’s a secret, you can’t really announce it until after the wedding. But if the wedding in San Francisco isn’t a secret from anyone, but just a simple ceremony for you and a small handful of people, you can send out save the dates and invitations for each party whenever you normally would for a wedding, relatively speaking. I’m not really sure aout Save the Date timing, but invitations I think are usually kind of 2.5 months in advance. Take into account anyone who would have to travel, and try to let them know the date and location as early as possible, so they can figure out their arrangements.

Hi! I’m eloping to NYC for a central park wedding in October. It’s not a secret or anything, and our parents want us to have a family celebration on our return, so we plan to wait until after the ceremony to sort it all out and ring around those we feel closest to.
If you want a larger celebration and the elopement is fairly secret, I would send out invitations to your celebration making mention of your marriage a month before. Therefore there is no time for people to question your choice re: eloping but still have ample time to prepare.
