So I have a question. Would it be silly to go to the courthouse to get married then get dressed up with wedding dress and all for just the big reception? We are blending families. He has 1 daughter and I have 4 kids. So not wanting to have anything big for the wedding part.

My neice eloped, then her parents threw her a reception a couple months later. She wore her wedding dress and it was very lovely and appropriate. We all loved seeing her in it. I think your guests would enjoy seeing you as a bride.

No, I don’t see why this would be silly.
I mean, you could even wear your wedding dress at the courthouse 😉

Not silly in the slightest .In fact I would wear it for the courthouse and the reception.

It’s not silly. I agree with PP’s, wear the nicer dress to the courthouse, too!
