I’m glad we had one, but it was a year early for us! We had a potluck barbeque and we made pitchers of sangria for everyone. It was really casual and relaxed and we just sat around chatting the whole time! It was awesome, but I get the impression you’re looking for more of a party than a bbq…

…your options are endless I think! I particularly like the idea of cocktails and appetizers somewhere like a jazz bar though. They’re just so fun.

My fiance’s parents threw us a party last Labor Day weekend at their house, and we were so happy with how it came out. It was really casual and laid-back. Mostly picnic-type foods and lots of drinks and desserts 🙂  My best advice to you would be to keep it casual. It really should just be a time to get together with family and allow each family to get to know each other, too (if they haven’t already). I would also stick to inviting family and really, really close friends only.
