Hosting reception months after foreign wedding-any guidelines???

15 years ago

Our 26-year-old son has been living in Japan for 3 years. He plans to marry a Japanese woman in December. My husband and I will attend the traditional ceremony in Japan, but I doubt that any other friends or relatives will be able to make the long trip.

I would like to host a reception for them on their next visit to the US, but that might be several months after their wedding in Japan.

They are visiting us this week, and we hosted a very informal "get-to-meet-her" party yesterday for some of his high school/college friends. For a reception next summer, however, I would like to include a wider range of people who knew him growing up in the church and community.

Are there any guidelines for hosting a reception months after a foreign wedding?
