I would feel bad inviting people that weren't invited to the 'real' wedding, but that's just me.
Same thing for us though.. my inlaws are insisting on it, and offered to pay, so okay. Otherwise, I definitely wouldn't do it. And it's more for his elderly grandparents who can't come to the DW. I understand parents perspectives but even my dad complained to me 'I'm going to have to pay to travel to TWO weddings?" (He lives across the country). I told him no, if you're at the DW that's all that's expected. A headache already! You get caught in a place trying to please people but you really cannot please everyone.. just have to keep repeating that to myself! haha
I guess I'm just in a weird mood lately b/c our anniv date is March 16th 2010 and he proposed on March 16th 2013 and we wanted to get married on March 16th 2014 but b/c of his brother we couldn't b/c he will be "in school" (he's supposed to be going back to college and hasn't reg. yet.....annoying). So than we had to move it to June 16th and we decided recently we are legally getting married at home on March 16th but I feel like a AHR is way too much, it's like having 3 weddings and it's just not special to me at that point having to plan all of it. So I think no we're just going to do something small like a BBQ and have it BYOB. And stay over night somewhere nice on March 16th and have a nice romantic dinner with just us when we legally get married.
