    Those are both simply fantastic ideas! Well done! :) I hope you won't mind if we use something similar.

      so i'm confused...are you having a wedding reception too or is this in place of it?

      why not just call it a celebration. doesn't matter if it's pre or post wedding then if it's the only celebration with friends/family besides the actually ceremony day.

        Msredbird--Go right ahead! I'm so happy that you like the wording and I'm glad it makes sense to someone else. This has been challenging for some reason but I'm just happy that people want to celebrate with us!! When is your party?

        midnight--I explained our story at the top of this thread. We're doing a full wedding reception in Mexico. This is the party that my FI's parents are having in their hometown so they can party with their large and extended group of friends who aren't invited to Mexico. The fact that not everyone is invited to Mex is what makes it tricky...b/c it's before the wedding.

          I totally hear you. The fact that it's before the wedding has made it challenging for us, too. The party will be in September at my parents' house, before the wedding in the Dominican in November.

          I'm just happy that we get to celebrate with all of our extended family and friends as well!

          When is your party?

            We are also having a pre-wedding celebration. We planned to call it a "Bon Voyage" Party. There will be a reception at the resort immediately following the ceremony. But it's a nice idea to have the reception prior to going for extended family and the people in general that cannot make it to the actual wedding. We thought people might feel more apart of the celebration if we had the reception before we left. :)
