has anyone had a wedding one day then reception another day??
We are having formal reception 3 weeks after legal ceremony x
In some religions and cultures common practice . Legal wedding in registry office then maybe a blessing and religious ceremony followed by a reception another day
I am a wedding planner. Many of my brides do this x
My friend did this x
A girl i know had her legal wedding in a registry office then the next day had a 'ceremony' and reception because where wanted her wedding didn't have a marriage license xx
Yep my sister is doing this. She is getting married in Italy and then having a reception in england on their return x
We're at a reception now x wedding was 2 weeks ago on a cruise ship x brilliant x
No. I didn't. Is that not an i do party
I had my baby 7 weeks early and ended up getting married two weeks after she was born instead of being pregnant!! I cancelled the reception and everything and we have just had it 4 months later
I had a small family wedding on a friday then a larger reception saturday for friends and workmates, got to wear my dress twice and less tiring.
My brother & sister-in-law did this. Had legal ceremony in registry office, just them & the 4 parents during week then had whole weekend reception with a celebrant doing another ceremony - worked brilliantly. Was at a converted barn with farmland - they were able to invite loads of friends and some people brought campervans etc to stay over, had a real fun festival vibe!
There is a venue local to us with no license but you can have a blessing in their barn so you have to do the illegal marriage before then blessing and reception.
I havn't but lots of people do. I suggested it to H2B as it is much cheaper just to do legal formalities with a couple and two witnesses but he wouldn't have it as said families need to be involved.
Hi Erica my friend did this :)
was thinking if people cant get a weekday of for the reception, my h2b and parents and myself, could go to registry office on the wednesday and then the saturday have the reception with friends and family
Me and my husband had a small intimate wedding registry with close friends and family, followed by a small house/garden party to celebrate straight after. Then a month later we had a traditional wedding reception with 250 guests. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I was able to get married in my home town, where my parents and my husbands parents were married, and still have the big Turkish wedding I always dreamt of
I did when I got married. We got married on the Tuesday in a registry office in London with just family no then we had the reception on the Saturday with the rest of our friends and family.
