I’m having a destination wedding and my future Mother-In-Law wants to have an after wedding luncheon for friends that were not invited to the wedding. I am having a hard time accepting this and was looking for some outside opinions. Thanks!

We considered this even though ours isn’t a Destination Wedding. I just have too many church people that I’m close to than I can afford to invite to the ceremony/reception. We decided against it because we didn’t want the others to feel like B-list guests, and also because of cost.
I also know someone who got married in his wife’s home country and flew here to have a simple second reception. I thought it wa a sweet gesture.
Why don’t you want a luncheon? Just curious.

Since its a Destination Wedding I see nothing wrong with this, lots of couples come back from a Destination Wedding and have another reception with family and friends who could not attend to celebrate their wedding. As long as your hosting the event with food and alcohol I say good for it.

I’m a small wedding type of person and we are inviting 90 people to our wedding which I feel is a good number. I think guests invited to the luncheon will feell ike b-list guests & I don’t really see the need to have a supplementary party just because my Mother-In-Law isn’t happy that we are having destination wedding. For Destination Wedding standards we are inviting a good number of people.
