I've been with my boyfriend for over ten years and we have two children together not to mention that we are in the process of purchasing our first home. He proposed on Christmas Eve. We obviously have waited long enough and don't want a long engagement. Due to the fact that we want to get married on our anniversary date which is May 4th.
Now here is my headache part. We decided to get married through court this year and just have a reception at a restaurant with our immediate family/friends and in 2014 have a religious ceremony with a wedding reception to invite both our immediate and extended family and friends.
Besides the fact that this just adds double the headache for me, is it weird to do this??? How do we go about inviting people?? The save the dates! Do we announce that our first wedding is intimate but not to worry because they will be invited to the big wedding next year? I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
