Once reserved for special circumstances is now a growing trend. Blame the pandemic, or a more globalized world; but we are seeing a trend of having two weddings to celebrate one couple. Sometimes two big weddings, but usually it’s one elopement style wedding or micro wedding and a secondary all inclusive wedding where everyone is involved. We have heard many reasons why people are celebrating not once, but twice. Honestly, we get it. Reasons we’ve heard that people are doing two weddings.
- I want my grandparents to be there and I don’t know how feasible it is to come to a big wedding next year.
- We want to celebrate both of our cultures equally.
- We want to celebrate with all his friends and family who live abroad.
- We want to get married, but a large wedding isn’t financially feasible right now.
- Despite COVID we just wanted to get married. We will worry about the big wedding later when we feel the timing is right.
- We are private and shy people, so we wanted to say our vows together with just us. We will celebrate later with family and friends.
- We wanted the option to get creative with the location of our wedding.
The list goes on and on and on. All reasons are completely valid because a wedding should be about you and your partner and your family and friends will be excited to celebrate with you in whatever way you see best fit.
