I don’t know about you, but I found all this wedding planning stuff was starting to stress me in ways I wasn’t used to. I’d find myself getting worked up about the stupidest things, that would never normally be on my radar, and reacting in ways that simply were not like me. So, when I decided to buck ALL the traditions and make my reception more fun and relaxed and more in line with who ‘we’ are, I shed that unfamiliar uptight shell, this person that I was not, and also felt so liberated!

So, hurrah for the liberation! A backyard bbq when you get back sounds like a perfect idea. Celebrating your love with your loved ones is where it’s at. Good for you!

Heck yea!  Sounds like a blast.  I agree with things getting “Circus-like” especially when you’re trying to do something small…it becomes more work than what it’s worth.  Your BBQ sounds fantastic and I am getting jealous I don’t have a big yard to do anything in!

I wanted a backyard BBQ sooo badly! That was actually my first choice, but we just couldn’t find a backyard big enough to accomodate everyone we wanted there! I hope you have an awesome time!

Sounds awesome to me!

If I’d had a backyard big enough to accomodate I’d have gone that way, too.
