I guess I don’t understand why you need 3 weddings? 

I think a reception (or rather, party) for your in-laws and their friends to celebrate is fine.  But I would honestly think it really strange if you walked down the aisle and pretended to get married again…because you’re already married.

Or maybe some type of celebration/meet and greet type of party with whoever the in-laws want.  I wouldn’t go on inviting everyone who has already been to both of your other weddings.  I’d probably be irritated (sorry) if I was invited to three weddings from the same person.

I wouldn’t pay for it though.  If your in-laws want one that bad…let them host it.  Otherwise I wouldn’t bother personally.  Why would you waste money on people you say you don’t like?

Im in agreeance with everyonhe else so far. You’ve had two weddings. married the love of your life twice, both times sound like they were fantastic shindigs ( with the exception of your Mother-In-Law complaining) I think ANOTHER whole wedding just sounds silly, overdone and its going to loose its novelty.  At least for me walking down the isle with the same man to be married in a short amount of time its just a little much.. i dont like attention though so im a little biased lol

 

I DO however think a nice get together (reception if you want to call it that) in paris sounds like a nice idea. It would be like a little having a little honeymoon and letting his family in on the party aswell. It would be nice.

@bbfyso:  I think a party to celebrate is fine…but please don’t walk down the aisle!! Haha.  But yeah…if they want one that bad I would tell them that you are not planning on doing (paying for) one but if they want to host a party to celebrate your marriage then you would definitely be open and willing to attend and celebrate with their family.

That sounds very nice ! im sure his family out there will appreciate it. If you have the chateau why would you need a tent?  Are you going all out with dinner and dancing too?

That makes sence, haha yeah im insisting my Bridesmaid or Best Man wear flats because our ceremony space is on a slant and i dont want anyeone tripping over themselves lol it would make for a funny video later though ;p 

 

It all sounds very large, we’re doing the bars but our guest count is looking like 40 right now, how many people are you expecting to attend??

@bbfyso:  I dont think you’ll be able to avoid the alchohol because casual drinking is so big in europe. I was in england a while back and the people I stayed with drank 1-2 bottles of wine with dinner and that was considered normal. They were also really picky with their wine, but im sure not everyone is like that. 

My wedding is happening in the afternoon so we can get away with a lunchon/dessert/candy buffet, sort of a high tea thing. No alchohol because the venue was misleading about the stipulations about having ahchohol on the premesis. 

 But honestly I like the idea of the bars/buffet dinners if its a smaller wedding, to me its just more convenient then everyone gets what they want in portions that work, but if you want to have 80 people a sit down dinner may be better.. but 4 course meal may be a bit much? you could always do a 3 course meal to save money then do a dessert/cheese buffet after. Everyone loves dessert buffets..no matter how many people there are. lol

go for the champagne reception at home – make it gorgeous, but it should be a celebration of your marriage – you’re already married and to have another ‘wedding’ with a walk down the aisle is a bit much a year and change later – especially when it’s not like his parents missed it, his parents friends missed it. 

so you’d be re staging a wedding for your in laws friends benefit – that’s a stretch. also don’t spend a bunch of cash on trying to out do the people who behaved badly – because that’s also behaving badly and immaturely. 

invite people over, have champagne, get to know them and celebrate that you got married.
