Reception before the wedding?
Posted 28 April 2010 - 04:23 PM
Have a question my finace and I have been toying with. We are thinking about possibly having a reception before we have our wedding, most likely the weekend before we leave. It was my finace's idea and he has been calling it a "Bon Voyage" party or something along those lines. I wanted to get your thoughts on here about this.
At first I rejected the idea because I had the vision of coming back to have the reception at home afterward and the guests being able to view our pics/video that were not able to make it to the wedding. But have to admit that the "Bon Voyage" reception is growing on me...On a side note-we are getting married in December, and by the time we return it's Christmas, then New Years... so we couldnt have our party until middle of Jan or so anyway.
Thoughts? Like or dislike the "Bon Voyage" Party? Thanks for any feedback!!!

for example, we're just doing dinner and drinks along with pics/video of the wedding.
but some brides go all out for AHRs...they wear their dress, do special dances, cake cutting, centerpieces, etc.
if you wanted something like that, then i think you'd be dissapointed with a pre-wedding reception b/c you're not married yet and wouldn't want to do all those things before it's official.
if not i say go for it!! less to worry about when you get home...only food for thought is do you think your guests will feel "cheated" if they dont get to see wedding pics/video??

The only thing I am concerned about too was the guests wanting to see pics/video of the wedding. My finace suggested though that we make sure to forward out our album via email when we get back to all our guests instead, and also upload the video too. This way they can watch on their own time and still get to see everything. So that relieved my concerns a bit too with this.
