We had a morning after breakfast with the guests that stayed in the hotel and then we left for our honeymoon.

We are having a 2nd reception.  It was our compromise.  His mom wanted to share  the joy of our wedding with everyone she knows =), so instead of forgoing our dream of a small wedding, we will have a celebration with extended family, neighors and friends the next day.

I think we will do our gift opening the day after, tear down the reception spac and clean our house since we leave for our honeymoon the next day.

The plan for morning after is: 1. Brunch with his parents and their guests. 2. Lunch with our friends 3. Dinner with my mom, dad, and their guests. Basically eating with whoever still stay in town. A lot of eating for us. Don’t think we’ll have alone time until we sleep or go on honeymoon. My dad and relatives will be in town until we go on honeymoon.

We’ll probably go to brunch with our wedding party and then open all of our gifts/help clean up my parents’ house (where the wedding is)

We had breakfast then did opening gifts/card.  Then packed up cars and left back for home.  Spent rest of day doing laundry/ mowing yard packing for honeymoon. We left monday after the wedding for that

We woke up late in the hotel and had bfast before checking out.  Then we drove home and finished packing for our honeymoon.  Then we went for dinner at my sister in law’s house (she had all the caterer’s leftovers from the reception).  After dinner we drove to the airport (about an hour and a half from our town) where we spent the night at a cheap hotel before catching our early flight out.

I am so glad we didn’t leave the morning after the wedding for our honeymoon! I really needed that good sleep (I did not sleep at all the night before the wedding) and extra time to pack.  We intended to have the packing done ahead of time but it just kept getting pushed back.

We slept in some, woke up and went to a brunch at a nearby restaurant.  A little later that afternoon, we went to my parents house and had a late afternoon lunch/early dinner & opened gifts with my grandparents, parents, siblings, his parents, grandparent, siblings & niece & nephew.

After that we just went home, packed & relaxed before we left for our honeymoon the next day.

We are going over to my parents house to open presents with family and eat lunch.. then home to try and organize the chaos before we head out the next day to our honeymoon.
