    Eight months is not too late!! My husband and I got married on a whim while on vacation in Hawaii in Sept 10. We are having a vow renewal and reception with friends and family on our 1 year anniversary.

    You should have whatever type of reception will make you happy–I wouldn’t let time be a factor. 🙂

    I’m with them! Do what you want! FH and I are getting married privately in NYC in June, and then are planning to have a bigger party with the family to celebrate. We’re going to do it as a “First Anniversary Party” but heck, I’ll probably wear my wedding dress again because I know my parents would be really excited to get to see me all dressed up (in person.)

    And anyway, people always like food! Not to mention, anyone who is going to look down their nose at you isn’t much of a friend anyway.

    Since I am having an intimate wedding, I’m thinking of having an after wedding summer party for all of our friends and family who weren’t invited.  Actually its just another reason to have a party so I’m excited to have ppl help celebrate w/ us.

    Have your party.  I know family and friends would love to celebrate your union regardless of when you “officially” married.

    I was thinking the same thing as some of the PPs…do what will make you happy 🙂

    If having a more formal reception will satisfy you, do it! It would be awful to plan this party and regret not doing ‘more’ after it’s all over, you know?

    I am a fan of the big reception no matter what. It makes it really feel like it was worth my time coming out (not that seeing the couple wasn’t worth my time too)

    I think you should totally have a big old bash to celebrate! How fun!
