Warning: you are probably going to get yelled at because most bee’s don’t like these types of parties or whatever. But you’re not calling it a wedding, so hopefully they will be nice…

Anyways, don’t really have any advice since someone else is throwing it. I would think you would only contribute to the guest list. People will bring gifts if they want to, whether you request them or not, but don’t expect them. I’m having a reception, party, whatever you want to call it after we elope and I’m wearing my dress, but I’m also planning/throwing it. I’m not sure how that works in your situation. 

Congrats on getting married and enjoy!

Ashleylrice:  Here’s a great article about after elopement celebrations<br />

Emily Post says post elopement celebrations are just fine

I think wearing your wedding dress would be appreciated by the guests.  Other than helping with the guest list, your role is to show up.
