- Wedding: December 2012
Hello- please let me know if I am commiting a major faux pas…
Im not gettting married twice, Im getting married to the same person but in 2 diff ceremonies. My Fiance is from overseas and he wants a wedding there- so OK lets do that, but because of visa rules we have to have our proper official wedding in the US and then some major paperwork time. SO long story short we will be having a wedding overseas (first) and one in the US (second).
Do you bees think that it is misleading if I put wedding etc on the “wedding” overseas eventhough it not our official wedding? Fiance wants a casual ceremony and reception do it will be like a wedding only we cant sign paperwork etc…so is this ok? I know that you can have 2 receptions and you call the second reception just that (not wedding) but considering the first one is unofficial it will be weird to call it our first reception (if you follow my trail of thought).
I dont want guest to think im trying to swindle wedding gifts etc out of them, but I dont want a length explanation either on the invites. The other solution is to call it an engagement party but fiance is keen to have traditional bride/groom/BM etc attire and ceremony that it would be awkward.
Any advice would be appreciated?
