My fiancé and I are planning a trip to Bora Bora to have a private ceremony with just the two of us next year. We are planning a party when we get back the following month; it will be BBQ with music and lawn games for our guests. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on if we should incorporate some traditional wedding customs at this event? I've been asked if I'm going wedding dress shopping (I figured I'd buy a beachy dress, but not sure about the party), having a "cake", etc? I just figured we would have everyone over to eat, drink, play games, mingle, and celebrate us. But is there something I should be doing for those that wanted a "wedding" for us?
Thanks for any advice!
