So we live in Georgia near the beach and are planning on having our wedding here, on the beach. We have a few friends here, but not that many as we have only lived her almost two years and aren't really social people. Our families and close friends live in Texas a good 24 hour drive away. Fiance and I have agreed that we only want our parents at the ceremony as we don't feel any of our friends here are close enough to want to have just them and our parents at the ceremony without also having our other close family members and friends there that can't be because of distance. How do we send out invites or announcements without actually inviting people to the wedding? Is that even possible? Should we just wait until after the wedding and send out a wedding announcement then?
On another note, a work friend has decided that I need a bridal shower even though Fiance and I weren't planning on registering and there would be a whole 5 people at the shower... maybe. It is rude to have people to your shower that you don't invite to the wedding, although all of the girls that would be invited already know we are only having our parents there. Is it still rude?
And one more thing... with only 6 people what do we do after the ceremony? Any suggestions?? I was thinking going to eat a restaurant but the fiance is just ready to go to the courthouse if we are going to go this small and not even do the ceremony. I really want a ceremony on the beach with me in a pretty wedding dress though.
Thoughts anyone?? I know this is kinda scattered... just how my thought are right now!! Lol
