because my fiances family, including himself, are all unemplyed, and it would only be my dad helping us out with the wedding, we are thinking of either eoloping or at least finding the money to fly out to las vegas and get married there. if we do decide that we might put it out there for anyone who would like to join us. We just brought a new house as well (before everyone became unemplyed) and we can really use a lot of stuff. If we dont have to wait another year and half to get married and can do it in the next couple of months, is it ethical or ok to have at least a bridal shower to register for gifts even if we dont have a wedding/ceremony near the fam? Just curious on what people think of that cause we would go ahead and save for a party when we come back if we did the vegas thing, but that might be up to a year, and again I don't want to sound greedy, but it would be really helpful to be able to register soon. thanks fellow brides!
