- Wedding: March 2010
Hi Bees! Our wedding has come & gone and our special day was so perfect. We had a small wedding of only 30 guests. Before the wedding, I explained the situation to some of my dad’s family members & they all encouraged me to try & organize a simple get together after the wedding so they can welcome DH to the family (they haven’t met him yet as our family doesn’t get together often) and celebrate with us. All very sweet.
Unfortunately, we have very little vacation time as we just changed jobs. Frankly, we want to take a two week honeymoon next & are saving half our time from this year to go towards that trip. Our hometown where both of our families live is 9 hours away, so it’s impossible to make a weekend trip, and it’s 3 hours from a major city so flying isn’t an option. So, I don’t know when we’re going to arrange this shindig, if at all.
In the meantime, I’d like to send wedding announcements. I know my family would love to see photos of the day. So far they just simply say “On Saturday May 18th, 2013, Groom and Bride were married in City Name. We hope to be able to celebrate with family and friends at a later date but”
And that’s where I’m stuck. I’d like to say something along the lines of we have limited vacation time from our new jobs, but that seems awkward. Any suggestions hive?
