- Wedding: August 2012
I’m not quite sure how to handle telling our family that we are getting married on our own. We are going to Barbados to have a “destination wedding” but we are in fact getting married in New York just before we leave. We will be legally married by a judge in front of our parents and grandparents. Then, when we go to Barbados we are going to have an informal beach wedding with just the two of us. I’m not sure how to handle the wedding announcements, as our parents and grandparents are technically invited to the justice of the peace “real” wedding. Do I announce what we are doing before hand? Since we have already told our parents and grandparents, I’m sure word has spread to other family and I don’t want anyone’s feelings to be hurt.
