So my fiance and I are getting married on Sept 12 in Louisiana....we have had a good bit of RSVP's, but mostly local people along with those in the wedding party. A lot of the out of state guest are concerned to travel due to COVID.
Side note: We were originally going to get married in February of 2021, but his mom has terminal cancer, and we want her to truly enjoy the day, so we moved it forward.
I am wondering if it would be "weird" to have a post marriage party - but this wouldnt be some like ohh hey we got married lets eat, we would basically scale down what we are doing on our wedding day - like flowers would be minimal, I would re-wear the dress, allow him to be in something a little more casual, and no DJ, and those are just running ideas.
I just want for my family, who are the ones traveling from out of state to be able to get almost the same affect.
I know of a few other brides who are having the ceremony now and reception later, but we are doing ceremony & reception on 9/12 - and like i said will repeat the reception at a later date with the rest of my family.
