So, my wedding is in January in Mexico. Our group booking has been completed and all our VIPs are booked
Yay for that stress to be over. We have a few people booking outside the group booking and a few that may book right before the wedding. We have an awesome guest list of 30 people with 10 "maybes." I'm really happy with the way it all worked out!
I'm at a point where I want to focus a bit on our at home reception and I want some feedback. My fiance and I are wondering when we should do it? On the west coast, February/March can be a yucky time of year. I was thinking the end of March would be a good time as it's about 7 weeks after we return from the wedding, so we'll have enough time to get everything together AFTER having a bit of a break. FI wants to do it in June. Do you think it's tacky to wait that long?
We're also having a hard time coming to an agreement about the style and feel of the reception. He wants it to be super casual, doesn't want me to wear my dress or him to wear his wedding attire. I'm pretty laid back and open to that idea, but does it send the wrong message? We're renting a hall, but catering it ourselves and having an open bar. Is it tacky to have it be super casual? We just want a chance to see and visit our family, but don't want everyone to think we're just throwing this party to get gifts (which we're not at all!).
Sorry for the rambling. Thoughts?
