Considering your situation I think you could easily do the reception later and register, if you feel strange about it, register at practical places where you can get anything and maybe let a few close relatives and friends know and they can spread it around to everyone if you don't really want to say. I would think if people know your planning a June reception you could send out the invites like 6 weeks before. Maybe mention it in the original invite somehow with information to follow at a later date.

We are planning an "Open House" for when we return. We are planning to have it at my parents house. We have a big family, so we figure that my parents can grill out some burgers/dogs/brats/etc. A few people can bring a dish to pass like pasta salad, chips, relish tray, etc. And pretty much the only thing we would have to bring would be the keg of beer for all the drunks. Hahaha. It is actually a really cheap way to do it. While you are on vacation, take some pictures of you and your hubby. When you get back, just get some cheap photo frames from Walmart and put those pictures together, put them on a bit table, and it gives the guests something to look at when they want to. This is really a fun and cheap way to have all the people you want (gifts from hahah lol)

FYI: We are renting a tent, DJ, tables, cattering picnic food, having a keg & bar for 200 people and it is going to cost us $4000. We are probably going to hire a shuttle which will be another $1K. We are having it at the future-inlaws. We are planning on planting flowers in galvanized buckets, stringing christmas lights and lanterns. We are getting hitched 1-23-09 and having the reception on 6-13-09....

I think this is pretty reasonable to do a full blown reception, or at least the guests will feel like it is. I will be more relaxed because I have time to send out the invites when we return from Mexico.

Just ideas.
