- Wedding: June 2014
Hi all 🙂
My fiancee and I are long distance right now and planning on getting married when I graduate college. He lives in northern Europe and I will be moving to be with him instead of him moving here to the states where I live. Because of this, it’s much easier to navigate the immigration process if we are married in his country. We are planning on having a party here for my family and friends and will have another one for his family and friends (though his parents will be coming to the states for the first one.) In his country, you get your marriage license/certificate at the police station which he says isn’t as weird as it sounds but who knows 🙂
Anyway, I wouldn’t want a ceremony even if we were getting married here. We’re both pretty shy people and I just don’t think it’s necessary, plus it’s a HUGE expense when you consider it will take thousands to get me over to him. So I guess my questions are how to make the party we are planning here to be as appropriate as possible. To save money we will almost certainly be having it at one of my aunts’ houses and I want to keep it pretty casual. I don’t think I’m going to ask friends to wear bridesmaids dresses or anything like that, but I’m worried about making it TOO casual!
