This is the 2nd wedding for both of us - and a small one at that. We are getting married on the beach- us and the officiant. Coming back home and having a reception/party/get-together. 3 weeks later. Oh, yes - sending out announcements with the reception date.
It's a very casual event (jeans) but semi traditional far as a "reception" goes. I've rented an art gallery for the venue, having a cake, food, favors for guests, blah blah blah. I want to do a "thank you" program with the basic info of where we were married, the officiants name along with acknowledging my mom, our children (20, 17, 16 & 15 - 2 are mine & 2 are his) remembering my dad & his parents as they've passed on. Good idea?
My 1st wedding I didn't have much "say so"; everyone did the planning of how it should be and well...this is my 2nd and LAST marriage so I want to do it my way. LOL! . And no, I'm not a bridezilla - just 40 something, a little older and knowing what I want.
