We respect and appreciate the amount of effort and expense that can come with attending weddings, especially if you have to travel any distance. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to celebrate with us. The most important things to us is that our wedding celebrations be stress-free and fun for our guests as well as us.
There’s so many people that we want to celebrate with, but we simply cannot fit everybody into a room at the same time. If we have only one event, we fear we’ll only have fleeting meetings with the friends and family who have come to celebrate with us.
Hence we’re arranging more than one occasion/opportunity where we can meet and celebrate with people. It gives our friends and family some choices about the type of event, location and date that suits them most. We will be inviting our guests to different occasions of our wedding celebrations in a way we hope will make it as easy as possible for them to celebrate with us.
