My Fiance and I are planning to have two wedding celebrations.  One in Australia and one in Germany.  In Germany you are required to be legally married before you are allowed to Marry in a church so we are going to do do the legal civil ceremony in Australia and the church wedding two weeks later in Germany.  This way both sets of family and friends can attend and if they are in a situation where coming to the other country is also possible then they are welcome at both.

I dont think it is crazy at all 🙂

I don’t think it’s crazy either. We’re technically going to have three wedding/marriage celebrations.

Our wedding will be July 7th in South America. Big white Church wedding with a big formal reception.

Then if things go according to plan, we’ll get legally married a few days later in the United States. That’ll just be a quick signing of the marriage license with an officiant. No special celebration or anything, though.

And at the end of July we’ll have a small get-together with my grandparents, cousins, etc. in a different part of the United States. It’ll be small and casual, but I still plan to wear my dress so that my grandmothers can see it.

Do whatever works best for you! 🙂
