Hypothetical question: Let's say we eloped based on a few factors, mostly cost and time constraints (combination of school and work schedules would make a legit wedding extremely difficult). We still want to have a small party, but: would it wildly unacceptable to have the celebration before the actual wedding? The goal is to get these two things accomplished in the summer, and it would be mighty nice to take care of the party logistics first, then relax and enjoy the ceremony/honeymoon before real life starts back up in earnest. What advice can y'all offer?
