I'm struggling a lot with my decision to have a destination wedding right now. My wonderful grandparents are not able to come so that takes away a lot and I will miss them terribly so it's important for us to have a formal at home reception so that they can experience everything with us.
I also feel a bit silly and selfish having an at home reception.
I'm sure that feeling will pass but right now I'm battling the urge to cancel the entire DW and just have our entire wedding at home. But I know that ultimately I will be disappointed if I do that even though there will be moments of sadness because my grandparents won't be there.
So I'll get to the point - I would like to make the AHR formal and special for my family by having a 'blessing' or something official. A renewal of vows? I'm googling like crazy but can't find any scripts or anything.
Does anyone have any suggestions about formal AHR's with vow renewals / blessings that they could share? Timelines / scripts ?
Thank you all so much.
