So this might ruffle some feathers and I think I need some reassurance or maybe even some people to tell me how innapropriate I am by doing this but my fiancé and I are hosting our own wedding shower.
We are having an, "I Do" BBQ at our house and planning everything. We are even making the favors and providing all the food and drinks. It is going to be very relaxed with no games and no opening of gifts, (well I hope so).
I know this goes against all the rules and etiquette of how weddings go but we are doing everything our own way. We are paying for everything, we have no wedding party, I am only inviting my father and his girlfriend, (I have no family) and our wedding is going to be very relaxed with good food, drinks and dancing. I honestly just want to have fun and get all of our loved ones together, both at our BBQ and wedding.
Oh and we just bought our house and not many people have been here so this is also a great opportunity for our friends and family to see our home.
We worded the invitations as a "I Do" BBQ but did put our registry on it. I see nothing wrong with it at all. We are going to make sure our guests are fed, happy and merry at both our BBQ and wedding. Ok, opinions please. Thanks.
