My FI and I have decided to go for a small wedding, after a few months of thinking we'd do something bigger, so I'm trying to get my brain on the right track for a more intimate event.
It's going to be just very close family and friends. And obviously, when it's smaller, there is a large group of people that you're friends with that you have to end up leaving out.
Is there a way we could celebrate our marraige with this larger group of friends, without inviting a ton of people to the actual wedding? Either before or after the wedding? No gifts would be expected. It would just be nice to celebrate with them in some sort of way. (I hope I'm making sense right now...)
Is that possible without being rude about the fact that they weren't invited on the actual day?
