Anyone having or heard of a second reception? My Future Mother-In-Law wants to have one because she has a LOT of friends and family that cant come to the wedding (the list was capped at 250) but wants to include them.
What does this call for? Should I wear my dress again? What am I responsible for if she is hosting it?
Any help would be great!

We are having a second because of a destination wedding. With the small guest list and the long travel we want everyone included. We rented out a space at a local restaurant and our doing a wine/beer bar, heavy apps and dessert. We want it to feel more like an open house.
I have a great dress for the rehearsal so I’m wearing that for the second reception. I think rehearing the dress is odd but that’s me.

We’re having a destination wedding & are having a second reception, but I’ve heard of non-DW couples having second receptions because the bride or groom’s family lives far away from where the wedding is held. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing the dress again– I’m considering it. Most people would really love to see you in your dress, especially if they had to miss the wedding.
