I think it’s totally fine to have a separate party if you make it clear that it is completely separate from your wedding. So there wouldn’t be a wedding dress or wedding cake or other reception-y things. (It would seem like this is the second, not so good reception for the not so important guests, which is not the message you want to send). It sounds like you’re already do that. Just make it another fun family get together and celebrate all being together. Of course, plenty of people will congratulate you during it

Hmm…people might still be put off, but you have to draw a line while inviting people. It’s just a reality. I’d double down on my advice to make sure that your BBQ is in no way shape or form billed as a reception or wedding event. It might seem like a technicality, but it seems like your crowd is sensitive to these issues.

ETA: But it’s totally proper to have a party like this. You should definitely have fun at it and enjoy being married!
