Why can’t you have a videographer at your real ceremony and share a recording? Nobody would be witnessing a ceremony at this congratulatory reception, including grandma, so why pretend?

No absolutely do not do a “fake” wedding ceremony. We eloped and had a casual celebration party after and just played a 2-3 min video of our ceremony. Nobody knew we were going to play it so they were surprised and enjoyed it. 

A video for Granny would be my only compromise. Sorry, gran!

Asking you to do another whole ceremony is outragerous in my opinon.
