I am a happily married mom.
DH and I eloped two years ago and had a baby a little over a year later. At the time we eloped, we told DH's parents but not mine as they didn't like my soon to be husband. We told them a few months later.
Now, we'd like to have a large family wedding to celebrate our happy life.
My grandmother says that having a reception would be a good idea, but a "wedding" with a dress and attendants would be in very bad taste. I disagree -- but am I being selfish? I love my family, but I am going to have only one ceremony in my life.
I was thinking we could have it in the church and I could have bridesmaids and everything. I won't wear white -- my gown would be ivory. What do you think?
