So my husband and I got married last year, had a small ceremony with close family, and because it is important to my grandmother we are having a reception this year on our anniversary because most of our extended family was not able to make it to our wedding last year.
My question is, since we already had the ceremony, and we are not doing a vow renewal, how can I include my bridal party in the reception this year? They were there at our wedding last year, and they will be sitting at the head table with us this year, but we would like to do something to make them feel like they are a part of our reception too. I know it's not usual but if anyone has any suggestions for a simple way to show our appreciation for them as part of our reception I would really appreciate it!
I know it's a hot topic on this board, so I just want to say that all of our family and friends know we are already married and know this is a reception to celebrate that, NOT the actual wedding.
