- Wedding: September 2018
My Fiance and I are considering having a private ceremony for our nearest and dearest only (which will still end up being about 40 people), and then a separate casual backyard BBQ reception for everyone a week later.
Has anyone done this? How upset would people be if they weren’t invited to the ceremony, or does anyone even care? I’ve never been to a reception when I wasn’t invited to the ceremony, so I’m not sure how this makes guests feel. We have a big circle of extended family and friends (my mom has 11 brothers and sisters and my dad has 5, which means our family is huge), and I don’t know what to expect.
Many thanks! 🙂
