its actually extremely common for destination weddings.  its referred to as the “at home reception” or AHR.  check out http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com and you find there is an entire section on the boards about AHRs.  i did a BBQ for my AHR last week – almost 4 months after my Destination Wedding because i was away on internship and only came home a month ago.

I think that’s what a lot of people do when they’re having a destination wedding.  It’s a little unorthodox, but definitely not unheard of.  Do whatever works for you.

Yes seems pretty common. I just met someone who is a professional wedding planner and he didn’t have his wedding reception until 4 months after his elopement.
