- Wedding: June 2016
So FI and I are a same-sex couple. In our state it isn’t legal to get married. We are thinking about traveling out of state on our anniversary and getting “legalled” just on paper, no rings and minimal vows (if any, if we can get away with it). Then having a celebration when we get home, aka a wedding.
I know there are a lot of feelings on getting married before your wedding and that making your wedding not a wedding and for opposite sex couples, I agree most of the time. The fact that we HAVE to go out of state to get a marriage licenses makes it impossible to invite all of our family and friends and have the wedding we would like.
Anyway, so I am thinking of ways to word an invitation. It wouldn’t be a “vow renewal” because we wouldn’t have previously exchanged vows. Do I just call it a wedding and let that be that? Does anyone have any other wording that they think of when you read my situation?
