- Wedding: August 2012
So my Fiance and I spent weeks throwing around different ideas for our wedding. The general consensus was that we wanted something fun and inexpensive. Well I come from a HUGE family that I’m not incredibly close with, and he comes from a very, very small family that we’re both very close with. We decided that it would probably work out best for our happiness and budget if we went to Las Vegas, with just our immediate family for a fun wedding weekend. The following weekend we would have a big bbq celebration back home, and invite the 100+ people that we wouldn’t be including in the vegas nuptials.
I’m sure this has been done by many others who’ve had destination weddings, but I’ve never been involved in that sorta thing before. Is this a crazy idea? Will people be offended that we want them to attend a “wedding reception” without actually seeing us get married? The goal is to celebrate and be happy and share the love, so when and where it all happens shouldn’t matter, right? Also, is it still appropriate that we register for gifts and everything?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks hive!
