Not sure if this makes sense..but!
My grandparents live in a beautiful home over looking a huge valley in Escondido. The back yard is literally perfect for a small wedding and FREE thanks to them being my favorites :P...anyway... I'm really limited on how many guests I can invite since it's a one bathroom downstairs home with not much parking and a small patio, deck, and backyard area.
Ultimately, I would love to have close friends and family at my ceremony/reception (both will be at the house) and then a separate party for all our friends that couldnt' come plus the ones that could. Sort of a BBQ style situation.
I've heard this has been done but I haven't found too much info about it or the polite way to execute this.
Any and all tips are extremely helpful.
