DH and I have been together for 8.5 years. Last May, we went to the town hall and signed the papers to make it official. We brought our two kids, my MIL, two BILs and grandMIL. We told everyone else after the fact.

MIL has hinted at us having a party, like a reception I guess. I think bc DH is her oldest and this was his first marriage. We live with MIL, and her and I were outside cleaning up the yard today and I asked if she was having BILs graduation party here, she said she wasn't sure but the yard needed to be cleaned up anyway and maybe DH and I should have a wedding party.

So our one year anniversary will be on a Sunday in May, and I think it would be fun to just invite everyone over, have a cook out, maybe a bon fire. Nothing formal or anything, just a good time.

So is it tacky to ask people to come for that? Or would it just be fun?

My husband and I were together for 6 years and went 2.5 years ago to get married at city hall. Just our kids and I. My mom had us a party for our one year anniversry. We rented tents, tables, and all of that. Had a nice dinner and then had a party after. Music, dancing, chocolate fountains. It was so much fun! I'm glad we did that.

No, it is not tacky to ask people to come for that. Yes, it would be fun, having a cook out and a bon fire with friends.
