Hello lovely ladies out there. I was just throwing around some ideas about my wedding and wanted some input. Getting married is so important to me and I want to make it a special day for my family, mainly my parents, grooms parents and close brothers and sisters we have. I've never been a fan of huge weddings, but I want my intimate family to be there to watch us say our vows. Would it be OK to have a small wedding, followed by a big party/reception that's not necessarily on the same day or weekend and invite everyone else to just the party? I'm trying to scale back, and I thought it would be more special to have just intimate family there when we are saying our vows, the part that is the most important, then having a casual get-together. The casual get-together would include our extended family, friends and basically anyone else who wants to come. Nothing formal (which is totally not me anyways), just a good time with some good food. What do you other knotties think about this? Is it s a good move? Not to mention i'm a little concerned about my extended family being very inconsiderate at my wedding. Would a more casual party be better? PLEASE let me know your thoughts. I'm flexible and open to suggestions! THANKS!
