I am planning a small destination wedding with only my parents and my fianc?’s parents. I’d like to have a reception for my friends and family after the wedding ceremony. Is it acceptable to have the reception 3 months after the ceremony?
Absolutely! While not the most common practice, with so many people having destination weddings, it is perfectly fine to have your reception months after the ceremony. Some couples opt for a party after they return from their honeymoon and others have chosen to have a big party one year later as their anniversary present to themselves and celebrate it with their family and friends.
So, the choice is up to you. Just make sure you give your wedding guests plenty of time to reply to the invitation.
