- Wedding: September 2012
Our original date was set for Sept 1, 2012 because it’s our anniverary. My fiance’s dad cannot put in for the weekend off from work because his job doesn’t allow that for holidays (it would be Labor Day weekend). We’re having a small, home wedding at a family member’s house so changing the day of the reception isn’t a big deal and it means a lot to us if he’s there. However, we still want to be LEGALLY married on the 1st and say our vows then. Originally, we wanted to say our own written vows with just 1-2 witnesses b/c it’s such a private thing for the both of us. We want to do a tiny ceremony on the first but also another generic vow reading on the 8th (next weekend of reception) in front of family. I just don’t want to pay for using an officiant twice (broke college students here :). I could use an officiant on the 1st ($75) and use someone else on the 8th but that person doesn’t have to be official. Any suggestions? If you were in my shoes, who in your life would you ask?
