The Proper Way to Elope (And Host a Reception After)

What’s the best way to elope?

(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: The most appropriate way to do this is to first send out an announcement of your marriage. Later, send a save-the-date letting your guests know where and when the reception will be held. (If budget is an issue, save on the price of a second mailing by combining the two in one.) I should add that you should absolutely not make any mention of gifts in your mailing(s).
