I do not think it is stupid at all, people do it for a variety of reasons (I will because I’m not American and we will need to do the civil ceremony asap so I can move and work in the US). I think the reception and religious ceremony are a way to share and celebrate with the people you love, whereas the civil ceremony is more for the couple, I think it’s actually nice that you can share that day alone with your new husband after you made that commitment to each other… so what if you have to wait for months because you can make a party and celebrate with family and loved ones?

I don’t understand why you can’t go ahead with the wedding in NYC even though you don’t live there.  Everything is booked.  All you would have to do is fly in for a few days to get married.

i think you should do whatever makes you happy. since you said it would probably take you awhile to plan another wedding… did you think about having a big anniversary party where you could renew your vows?
