I need some advise. My fiance and I set a date for 08/20/2016, but I am thinking about doing a courthouse wedding in georgia (where we currently reside) and then a reception in Miami (where all of our family reside). I am not 100% sure if this would be a good idea. Any advise is helpful, thanks.

Are you planning on having a ceremony in Miami as well? Because that can cause some problems. Why do you want to do a courthouse wedding in georgia? And are you going to have the courthouse ceremony and then immediately go to miami for the reception or are there going to be months in between? If you’re having the courthouse wedding, why do you want a miami reception? All things to think about 🙂

Im not planning a ceremony in miami. i was thinking like a party in miami just to celebrate our nuptials with family. I mentioned a courthouse because we dont have friends nor family here to attend if we made plans for a big wedding in georgia.

Then it’s perfect! You have an intimate courthouse ceremony and then one hell of a party in Miami afterwards! I wouldn’t call it a reception though. I’d call it a marriage celebration because you guys will already be married. You can do some traditional stuff, like the cake and you can wear the dress that you wear to the courthouse. But you don’t have to do the bouquet or garter toss. Just have a really bitchin’ party celebrating love with all of your friends 🙂

I second PPs comment, if you are going through the trouble of throwing a reception in Miami, why not just have the ceremony in Miami before the reception? That way your family and friends can see you get married.
