Bridesmaids at home reception
New here and new to weddings as I have only ever been to one and never thought I would get married!
Basically, long story short we want to get married Abroad as my partners family is there and it means so much that his grandparents can see us getting married and his daughter can be there and we get it done by his local priest on the beach. Small.
This is 100% what I want, but I also want a fancy reception at home for my family and friends who I know won't be able to travel. (Plus Its really expensive just for flights so I wouldn't expect anyone to pay that much)
I was wondering how it works.
Can I still have "bridesmaids" at the reception that won't be at the one abroad?
I would like to get my best friends dresses and pamper them although they won't be there on the actual day.
I would love to hear what everyone has done/ has experienced from a wedding abroad and a reception at home.
Thanks in advance!
