I wanted to find out if anyone else is having a second reception when they get home. Here's a little background info: FI and I are from Baltimore, MD and most of our family and friends are from the MD, DC, PA and DE area. We chose to get married in OBX because we couldn't afford to get married at home since we both come from large, close-knit families and have a good bit of friends and friends of the family. Our guest list for the wedding is 50 and that's just parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. We weren't planning a second reception until a number of family members asked us if we were planning on doing something when we got home. At first I said no because I thought it was rude, I had this idea that people would think they were second rate to those invited to the wedding. It wasn't until FMIL said that a second reception would be a nice gesture to everyone else who would want to congratulate and celebrate our marriage. So I gave in and now we're planning a reception at home and I've been tossing ideas in my head about what to do. Whatever I plan, I want it to be casual and as cheap as possible
Anyways to wrap up this long post, I wanted to find out: 1.) Are you planning a second reception at home? 2.) What are you planning to do? TIA!
