Is doing an at-home reception (casual, like a cook-out) BEFORE the destination wedding popular?
I ask because my crazy cousin (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/appropriate-notice-timeline-for-a-destination-wedding#axzz2UhM00z00 and http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/invited-to-a-cash-bridal-shower#axzz2UhMHueZS ) is having a pre-destination reception. I just thought it was odd, and I’ve never heard of it.
The cynic in me can’t help but think it is to receive cash gifts before she goes. She was recently quoted saying to my Grandma that “whatever money they receive that they don’t spend on the wedding, we’re going to buy a car with.”
