- Wedding: September 2011
I’m not sure if hometown reception is the correct term, but if you married anywhere other than your hometown and hosted a reception later in your hometown, please share your experiences!
FI and I know we don’t have a large budget but are facing extreme family pressure to host a hometown reception for my side of the family. My side has already said it doesn’t have to be fancy but I know there will be nasty things said if we had hotdogs on styrofoam plates at a “reception” for them. (Not that any of these meanies are willing to open their wallets, but that’s a whole other story.)
Please let me know how your hometown receptions were! Were they as “fancy” as your after-wedding reception? How long after the wedding did you have it? Did you wear your wedding dress? Did you hire a real dj?
