That’s what we’re doing.  I’m happy with how it’s going so far.

We’re actually planning the same thing–we had our wedding in December but are planning a big “celebration of marriage” party for this November. Go for it! It is less expensive, by far; because it isn’t a wedding, things can either be skipped entirely or cost WAY less (because there’s no “wedding” markup).

We are doing something like that.

We are getting married in my Fiance home town.  We want a small ceremony with a dinner reception.  

His parents live in a small town and wanted to celebrate with all their friends, neighbors and extended family.  They understand that we just are not comfortable with having a big wedding. 

The day after our wedding we will have a party at his parents house. It will much more relaxed and informal.  I think it was a great compromise.

@NJmeetsBX:  I’m doing most of what you mentioned…Dinner, DJ, 1st dances, favors, etc.  It’s a pretty typical reception, just not with everyone we know…only family and our best friends.
