i personally like the idea, but… looking at the other side, if someone is going to be offended because they wern’t invited to you wedding are they really going to be less offended becuase they were invited to a cheaper after party?

is there some guest list weeding that needs to occure? just a thought

I remember your post the other day about being over on your guest list, and I guess I didn’t realise you were having a Destination Wedding. A lot of people that have destination weddings have an at home reception.

I hope it’s ok, because that’s what I’m doing. We’re getting married at a semi-destination location, having a reception, and then having a big reception a week after. When talking to people I use the words “small” and “family” a lot to describe the ceremony, and 90% of the people I talk to don’t seem offended at all.
