I would probably go ahead and have a bbq, even if it’s after you get back from your honeymoon. You can send another invitation to the people in UT saying something like “Please celebrate with us following the return from our honeymoon” There are better wordings than that online.

 

As far as the deck, roof and fence, unless money is a major issue, I would go ahead and try to get it fixed. I know you have alot going on with the wedding but you’re going to have to get it fixed sometimes soon anyway, right?

 

As for decorations for the bbq party, I would reuse wedding decorations, just to make it a bit more festive. You could even have it more of a “Welcome us home as newlyweds” party, rather than a “reception”

I hope I helped!

I would just see what you could get done before the wedding. I’d say pick the most important, like the roof and the deck and try to get that done. The fence could wait as long as what’s blown over isn’t all in your yard. I doubt the guests would even notice or think anything of it, especially with it being storm damage so its possible some of your guests would have house repairs that they haven’t gotten done yet either.

Do you want to do anything in UT?  If not, you’re really under no obligation to have a second party for people that can’t go to CA.
