@jmcee02:  why dont you invite parents and grandparents, and have his g-father perform the church ceromony. just do a small cake reception at home. is it in your budget to pay for your parents to attend?

if you’re set on the beach, i would just do only the two of you and then when you come home do a welcome home reception (hosted at home) and also do the church wedding for your g-father.

I agree with @MrsTCB  … do just a private beach ceremony and then a reception later… with a vow renewal (or a blessing?) at the church?

But I feel ya! I’m in the same boat. We want it just the two of us… but his family lives in town (mine half way across the country) and his mom REALLY wants the family (10 people on his side) to be there. We are putting our foot down … regardless of how much trouble this causes.

Good luck making your decision!
