My cousin is sort of having this problem already. She is having a wedding in the next state over from where we live and then having a reception with everybody later. Some of the older crowd members haven’t really grasped the concept of the party actually being a reception. I’m sure if it’s out of the norm for your mother then it might have just seemed like a party.

I have to say that I like how you and your husband found a happy medium to have the wedding that each of you wanted. I’m sure his large family will be happy that they get to share in your day as well. If your mom mentions it again I would probably just mention that all weddings are parties! I know that if a wedding will be the most expensive party I ever plan for myself I would certainly want to get all dolled up too!

My mom doesn’t seem to understand this either. *sigh* I don’t know how to help them get it either.

we eloped and we had a big party when we got back, about 150 people, catered with staff/bar etc and i never considered it a reception – i did consider it “just a party” so people had the opportunity to enjoy and meet me and my family  *shrug shoulders*
