A lot of people (I hear this from straight couples usually, but the idea is the same) get married at a courthouse stateside, whether before or after, and basically have a commitment ceremony at their destination.

Not everyone needs to be involved in the actual wedding itself – logistically, that’s kind of a pain.

I say just do it simply at home and go all out at your destination.

The nature of a destination is not everyone can attend… don’t drive yourself nuts trying to include everyone who can’t make it to Brazil in your ceremony in the states… at this rate, you are planning two seperate weddings for the same couple, which is too much work!

I actually like the JOP and then dinner (maybe just the two of you) and then Brazil as a option – you both get a ceremony more akin to your personalities, and I think it’s a beautiful way to practice the art of “comprimise,” which at its very best aspires to be “a solution that makes everyone 100% happy”

Quite frankly, I’m an introvert and I would LOVE it if FI and I had the opportunity to do a small, intimate wedding in addition to our big, social party/wedding. 🙂
I would feel so loved and comfortable – sometimes the big wedding is overwhelming for me!

Good luck!
