Here's my situation: I am having a destination wedding in Hawaii in December. It will be a very small affair (6 guests total) so I don't really have a wedding party to speak of. I am having a reception at home (Ohio) in March for all my friends and family. I have some friends who are very special to me (if I were to have the wedding at home they would definitely be in the wedding party) and I want them to be part of my special time.
Would it make any sense to ask someone to be in a wedding party for the reception only? And if so, what kind of role could they have? I really want to recognize the people I care about so much but honestly I don't know how to work them into the reception. Any advice is much appreciated!
