- Wedding: December 2008
Hey bees, need your help! We’re having a family only, destination wedding this winter. None of our friends – who are like our family – are invited because of cost restrains. We still want them to be involved, and were thinking about having a second reception when we come back from our honeymoon. That’s where I need your help. How can we throw a nice, casual reception that shows our friends we love them and want them to celebrate our nuptials with us, without breaking the bank? We also don’t want this to look like we’re asking for presents, so how can I go about inviting people without it coming off as they were only good enough to come to this makeshift reception. Now the wedding basics – we’re having a family only beach wedding at the end of the year. It’s a destination wedding for our families, but it’s on our home turf. The wedding is in December, and we’ll be out of town for the holidays and a short honeymoon until January. Thoughts on what kind of second reception we should throw? Whether we should throw one at all? And how do we make it look like these friends who we couldn’t invite to the wedding are just as important as our family? Thanks!
