  • Wedding: April 2015


I”m getting married in vegas in April 2015. Im also having these concerns. I think ultimately its your day and you have to be happy. My fiance and I are also paying for our wedding so we are inviting close friends and family. If they want to be there they will show up. You can always have a party at home sometime down the line. Just make sure if you ask people to come they have enough time to save and take off of work. As for time alone tell your friends you need atleast a day or two to yourselfs everyone will understand! Good luck:)

We eloped to St. Thomas. We did invite immediate family, but what they did was go prior to the wedding and then they left the day after our wedding so that we would be alone for our honeymoon. We did not invite any people who are “needy” and would have wanted us to plan every minute of their day and would have wanted to stay the whole time we were there as we wanted it to be our time together. And, a honeymoon is just not a honeymoon shared with family or friends.  We did love having them the day before and at the rehearsal  diinner and at the wedding, and the dinner following the ceremony, but we loved having the week afterwards all to ourselves- best of both worlds. Hubby and I are going back for a vow renewal ceremony (12 years) this year-and this time it’s just  the two of us.
