small wedding dilemma

Kathy Harrington
10 years ago

My daughter and her fiancee have just gotten engaged and are getting married in September in a small immediate family and close friends only ceremony & reception (45). She has let extended family know that they are not able to extend invitations to aunts, uncles and cousins as he has so many in his family it would turn into a hugh event that they are not wanting or able to afford. I would like to throw an engagement party in July and invite everyone we are not able to invite to the wedding to celebrate with the happy couple. It would be a casual backyard bbq. However, I'm having second thoughts as most etiquette books think this is tacky. Any thoughts or suggestions
