I'm not sure how many here are having or have had a wedding social, but I am a Manitoban, so a social is a big thing.
I just have a few quick questions:
How exactly does the wedding social planning work?
My fiance's mom is telling us that our wedding party is supposed to be the ones planning the social. But we don't have a wedding party yet as our wedding is still 18 months away, and we don't have many close friends at the moment.
Is it wrong for us to plan our own wedding social?
Due to our wedding date (September 26th, 2015) our social is going to be roughly 4-6 months before, making it during prime social season. So we need to be making bookings of our social venue and dj now (roughly a year in advance) before everything is booked up.
We have told his parents that we are starting to get in contact with venues and a dj to start booking/planning our social, and they make it out to be completely wrong. I know in a way it's just their opinion. I am far from a traditional bride so I myself see nothing wrong with it. I would personally feel bad having the wedding party planning it- It's an event for my fiance and I, I wouldn't want to put the stress of planning it onto other people.
But how do others feel about the couple planning their own social?
