Recently got engaged, we have 2 children one who is due to be christened soon. We are thinking about having a christening/wedding but wondering what was we should go about it. I've never been to such an event but have heard of quite a few in the last year and it appeals to me so much more than a traditional wedding.
So what I'm stuck on at the moment is whether we should get married in registry office and go off on an elopement holiday with the kids and announce that we will celebrate at baby's christening. Or should we just announce it at the church that we are married and try and get a little blessing from the priest and go on our holiday then? (it's all about the holiday lol)
Also what kind of affair would you have? I don't want to go completely OTT and have a sit down meal as I do plan to invite my large family and it will result in around 100 guests I think. Or do we just pay the price for 100 people I don't know what to do.
I'm a very indecisive person and my partner is easy going so he's not a great help :-D
Also what kind of dress would one wear? I don't want a traditional wedding dress. Will have to check with parish if there will be another christening on at the same time (might be awkward)
Thanks All xx
