Congrats on your engagement!

The best advice I received in my planning was:  Do you like, pick what you like, and move on. 

It didn’t really make sense to me and seemed WAY too simple – but it’s really true.

If you apply it to your situation – the answer is:  yes!  If you want to do the weddingy stuff at your wedding reception (even though it will be after the fact) then DO IT!  There’s nothing wrong with wanting to incorporate those things – it’s a wedding reception afterall! 🙂

  • Wedding: February 2012

@Mandalynn98: We are doing ours like a party!  We haven’t had our official housewarming party (even though we will have lived there for greater than a year when our wedding rolls around) and it is our baby’s 2nd birthday shortly after our wedding (our adorable yellow lab, not an actual human) so we are just inviting everyone for a general wedding celebration/housewarming/doggy birthday.  We are getting married in Maui because I was sick of all the reception planning.  Decorations and planning big, formal events just isn’t my thing.  Backyard barbecues are =)
