My fiancé and I need a little but of help with the etiquette of having an out of town wedding and a big impending move.
The basics... We are getting married in May. The majority of the family guests are 6 or more hours drive away from where we live and are getting married. It's already a big commitment for the majority of people to attend the day. I appreciate the effort they are undertaking to be with us that day.
In July of this year, my fiancé and I are moving across the country (from Toronto to the Yukon). With the moving coming, we are looking for a tactful way to tell our families and guests, we really don't want wedding gifts, as we will not have extra space in the new location.
I am the first of my generation from both sides to get married and the majority of the family is excited about the wedding. How do I not dampen thier excitement about this???? I do not want to come off sounding ungrateful for everything they have done and offered.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
