- Wedding: October 2013
FI and I are both from MI and we now live in NC. Needless to say since both of our families are in MI (and some of his Mother’s side is in KY), we’re eloping at the courthouse sometime next fall (I’m trying to convince FI to get married in October, but ultimately the exact date is still up in the air), and then just have a small get together/reception in Kentucky and then a bigger one in Michigan.
My question is what would we send them? An actual invitation? A save-the-date with complete details once they get hammered out? When would I send them too since they would be only invited to the “reception” part (not that we wouldn’t love them to join us for the cermony, just not sure how many would actually travel that far). When would be a good time to have just a small get together too? My family are big drinkers so I don’t want to have it too early in the afternoon. But I also don’t want to do the big dinner thing either. So would 6/7pm be a good time or would it be too late for drinks, dancing (maybe) and mingling with some hors d’oeuvres?
