When my then fiancé now husband and I got engaged we both already knew we didn’t want to have an actual wedding or wait long to actually get married. So we opted for a trip to the courthouse in October just us and we’ve planned a trip to Alaska in July to get wedding photos taken while we’re there. We definitely want to have a celebration type party before Alaska which will be super casual at a local brewery no wedding dress or tuxes. We just want to celebrate with our close friends and family! But what should I call this party? Part of me wants to wait to have it until after Alaska so we can show photos but I also think a send off party to Alaska would be fun. SOS and then what type of timeline do you do for events like this?? Any and all comments would be helpful!
