Headed for Key West!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My name is Rachel. My fiance (BJ) and I have been together for just over 2 years and decided to get married about 2 months ago.

 

We are getting married on Smathers Beach in Key West over my fall break from grad school - October 16th. We are going super simple and laid back with less than 10 guests - just our parents & siblings.

 

feedback.gifWe are planning to have a backyard BBQ style reception in Michigan sometime in early June. So I am also looking for suggestions on how to word a reception invitation. I'm having trouble since the events are so far apart from each other. I don't want to send an announcement out immediately following the ceremony due to our budget (school is expensive).

 

Also, this is my second - his 1st - so should we register for giftshuh.gif

Congrats and welcome to the forum! You will find a lot of great information on here, and I totally understand how being in grad school and planning a wedding can get very hectic. As for registering for gifts I see no reason why you can't but it is always a personal decision.

Congrats!!! You will love all the info you can find on this site. It's very addictive! Enjoy and good luck with your planning!

 

As for registering, I would recommend it b/c otherwise you'll end up w/ gifts that you don't need or do not like. It doesn't have to be announced anywhere but let the parents know so that when someone asks you and they can tell them. :)
