Reception after Eloping?
FI and I are really considering eloping. However, I would like to have a reception, or really just a big, informal party at a banquet hall, afterwards. We're in Florida and have family spread out in the northern states. Is it ok to elope and then send out annoucements and invites to the reception afterwards, giving a date approx 3-4 months down the road? Or is that too long after the elopement? We just want to give our families enough notice so they can save up some cash, get the time off, etc.
