Don't let logistics get in the way of your dream destination wedding. Our wedding etiquette experts weigh in on how to plan a drama-free getaway.
My fiancé wants a giant wedding and reception; I prefer a small beach wedding with family. To compromise, I suggested going away for an intimate ceremony and then throwing a big bash when we return. Is my plan tacky? I don't want it to look like we're just in it for the gifts.
Not at all. Many couples who opt to have a small destination wedding throw a larger celebration when they return home. It's a good way to involve friends and family who couldn't make it to the ceremony. Also, a wedding invitation is just that—an invitation to a celebration, not a request for presents; go ahead and have the wedding of your dreams and the reception that your fiancé wants.Photo: KT Merry
