So my fiancé and I want to have a private destination wedding, him and I. Somewhere tropical, so we can immediately start our honeymoon. We may fly our parents out with us, but our preference is that we'd rather spend more money on a honey moon than an actual wedding.
We plan on throwing a reception when we get back, but I don't even know how to go about invites to that. Seeing as I know a lot of people get so huffy about being only invited to a reception. I don't know how to explain that the actual wedding is literally going to be under 5 people!
Is their a formal way to do this? Is that bad? I mean the reception is the fun part of a wedding in opinion. I've heard people say that "oh they just want a wedding gift, but I'm not invited to the wedding" it just stresses me out because I don't know how to send out invitations without people getting upset or jumping to conclusions about not getting invited to a wedding. As for the gift, I am going to do a registry but the people invited to the reception are getting their meals and drinks paid for, obviously...
Does anyone else have this issue?
