A bit of background: FI and I live in Australia and we are getting married in Las Vegas. As with all destination weddings, there are guests who can't travel for one reason or another.
We are hosting a pre wedding party in our home town about 3 months before the wedding as a way of getting our guests together and also hosting guests who cant travel to Vegas. We wanted to do this BEFORE the wedding so it didnt seem gift grabby cos thats not our intent at all!
All guests invited to the wedding are invited to our hosted pre wedding party. Ive been lurking the board and I know that its 'wrong' to host your own engagement party but I dont see this as an engagement party (we have been engaged since March). We wanted to host guests ourselves and not put it on our close friends or family.
We are also not having any showers or other pre wedding functions. I just need some advice on this before we send out the invitations.
Can't wait to say 'I do' on April 14, 2014 - Planning Bio
