I’m new to all this, but I think that it’s your wedding, and you should celebrate it any way you see fit!  My plan is to have a small destination wedding that includes family and close friends and then come home and throw a big reception to include everyone we would have invited to a hometown wedding.  I don’t think that there are any hard and fast rules anymore, and I don’t think you should cheat yourself out of a formal reception if that’s what you want!  Just in researching whether or not my vision was possible (much less appropriate and/or within proper etiquette!), I’m finding that just about anything goes–from a formal reception in full bridal attire with a sit down dinner to a casual backyard barbeque in a sundress.  You’ve gotten the stressful part over with; take the time to figure out what you and your husband really want and go for it!

Whatever kind of party you two want!  When we return from our DW we are having 2 informal receptions with friends and family. 🙂  Congrats btw!  Any pictures to share?

Congratulations!  We had our honeymoon there.  We spent every day on the beach under that gazebo.

There is no etiquette for this–throw the kind of party you would like to have.  I think you should wear what you want for your reception.  Don’t settle on a cocktail dress because that’s what you think you “should” do.
