Dear Edith

If you elope, how should you do the reception. We would like to have a big reception. Do we have people that we would have had in the wedding dress up like we want? Do we have a bridal party table? Should we have it informal or formal? Please Help!!


You may need to clarify your question for me. I am afraid you are a little mixed up when you say you plan to “elope” followed by a big reception! If I am correct, what you are considering is having a “private” wedding that may be followed by a big reception. There is nothing wrong with having a private wedding with limited family and close friends if you wish, that is followed by a big reception. My book covers this in more detail. I hope this helps.
