My fiance & I had a small ceremony where we were legally married, but are planning our big one for next year with all our family & friends. People who knew or found out are congratulating us, but I’m not sure what to say… that this one isn’t “our” wedding & that the “real” one (that we’re really planning for) is next year?
For any of you who are or know someone who’s had a small civil ceremony, then followed it with another wedding & reception with famliy & firends… do/did you call yourselves married after the civil (legal) wedding? Or are you saving it til ‘the big one’? What did you tell friends/family who knew of the legal marriage and which date do you count as your anniversary?
I don’t know anyone else who did this, so any comments/advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
