Could you have some one-on-one convos with your side of the family and see if the August date is feasible? I think you have plenty of time to get it all together – especially since you already know your details, etc. about how you want it to be. You could even send out a fun save the date that says "We’ve Moved" and then smaller (our date)??

If you go with option 2 – you could still do the 2nd wedding – but waiting until March is kind of late…could you do it in the fall? By March you’d already be married for 7-8 months….

believe me I know what you are struggling with.  Me and my fiance have had to cancel our date due to health issues.  I want more than anything to be married to him and he does to me, but we want that special day in front of the family and friends:)  We have thought about just having a small wedding and then doing a big one when we can afford it, but most peoples reaction to that idea was you are already married so why bother.  I really am sorry I can’t offer you some great advice on this cause I am in the same situation in a way:)  Good luck with everything, may it all be blessed no matter how it happens:)

  • Wedding: April 2013

One of my very good friends was married 2 years ago, in City Hall, with my and one other girl as BMs and 2 guys as GMs/witnesses. She was 24, a sophomore in college(she started late), her fiance was 26. He’s a chemical engineer. The reason that they were married so hastily and had such a small, informal wedding was that the FH got a job out in Seatle and my friend wanted to move with him but she wanted to be married before the move. They didn’ have the time or the money to have a "real" wedding. Fast foreward to one year later. He has a job that pays a 6 figure salary, she’s still studying and working on the side, they saved up enough money to have a gorgeous, amazing wedding. Exactly a year after they were married at City Hall (their 1 year anniversary), they had a church ceremony (she is quite religious and didn’t even think they were married until the church ceremony), an amazing reception and a honeymoon. So, I think, having 2 weddings is perfectly fine! I say go for it! Especially since option 1 seems so hectic and stressful.

 

Sorry for the lengthiness.

i seen something someone wrote on another post and it made me think maybe I should do the two weddings:)  They were going to get married at the courthouse and then have their big wedding the next year.  But anyways she said she felt lucky to get to marry the man of her dreams twice:)  That is a prity awesome way to look at it:)

I would try floating idea #2 with your close friends and family and see what they say.  In some social circles this is totally normal and acceptable, while in other social circles, people have a strong aversion to having two weddings.  So forget what people on the internet say – ask your parents, close friends, etc., what they think of the idea.  Most likely they will be understanding and supportive, in which case, go for it!
