Speaking of weddings and parties....
I have one for debate. Dss and his gf have decided to get married. They're taking off out of state next weekend (they don't have to wait for a marriage license out of state) so no one will be attending the cermony. They've decided not to have a reception now because dgf is pg and doesn't think it's fair that she can't get drunk at her own reception. Ok, here's the debate. They're planning on having a wedding ceremony and reception next year after the baby is born. I think this is in poor taste, since this ship done sailed and a wedding and reception are in celebration of starting out on a new life together. I think money is better spent, at this point, on diapers, formula and college savings. Just curious as to what others think. IMO, it's a total waste and a poor decision to spend $$ on a party a year from now. Heck, I think it would be a bad decision to do it now considering baby #2 is on the way but at least it would be in celebration of the newlyweds getting married at this point.
Is my thinking out of line? Or is theirs? I can't see eloping now and then having a party later to accomodate a pregnant bride who wants to tie one on at her reception.
Oh, I'll be out of town for the next week. I'll check back in to see what people have to say when I get back.
