- Wedding: January 1994
So, my husband and I eloped a few weeks back!
We somewhat prepared his mother (and immediate family) for the idea by saying we were thinking about going to city hall and maybe having a party afterwords (in response to her prodding about our wedding details).
We wound up getting married on the beach, and didn’t tell anyone beforehand.
Husbands mom was happy for us, but a bit sad she wasn’t included. She mentioned maybe having a separate party for family, and maybe us having our own party for friends.
Here are my questions:
1. If we say we are interested in a party for family (hosted at their house) would we be expected to pay for it?
2. If we have a party for friends (I realise we would have to pay for it) what should we do? We have a yard that is pretty where we could host. But it might be cold out due to the season. BBQ?
