- Wedding: September 2012
We are having our wedding in Georgia and neither of our families live here. My family lives across the South out to Texas and the groom’s family lives along the East Coast into Upstate New York. We realize that not everyone will be able to attend our wedding, but we are perfectly fine with that as we want a small wedding.
My Future Mother-In-Law has suggested having a second reception a month later in Northern Virginia for those unable to travel to Georgia; however, many members of my family are also unable to attend the ceremony and the second reception is even further away for them. I feel as though members of my family may feel badly that they cannot attend not one but two receptions.
Also, Future Mother-In-Law has a long list of “family friends” that she wants invited, so I am thinking that the second reception is the best way to have them celebrate with us.
Should I worry about my family members feeling awkward about not attending either celebration?
Can I invite people only to the second reception and not to the wedding and first reception?
