This a question for those that got married upon entry with a K-1 visa.

I presume that your wife's family was not present, what type of wedding did you had and how many people attended it.

1. Simple Christian ceremony in the function room of a restaurant facing a creek, followed by a reception in aforementioned room.

2. 48 guests, none from my side of the ocean. Too expensive to fly and accommodate family and friends from Singapore. :)

About 50 people attended including 12 non-Christian members of my family including

  • father
  • sister, her husband and two sons from Sunnyvale
  • cousin from Chicago, her husband and daughter
  • cousin from Gainesville FL
  • father's brother and his son from Annapolis
  • cousin from NJ, brother of the Chicago cousin
  • cousin from Traverse City

Others were all attendees of the LEF North American Easter Retreat (mostly from Detroit/Windsor area, but including one family of four from Philly)

No relatives from Pras' side (though she has one uncle in FL, his family was absent)

Our wedding was supposed to be a small simple ceremony but turned out quite larger than I expected. We had about 125 people, a civil ceremony in one room of a ski resort where I grew up and a hor's d'ouvres reception in another larger room. It turned out to be just like the wedding I would have envisioned had we not had to go through this visa process. Mostly my family and friends were there, however his bother was able to come from New York. We will go back to Morocco in 2 years or so to have a traditional Moroccan ceremony (like 7 days of wedding party!!)

PLANS:

we will keep our civil marriage small. Probably only my fiance, me, his mum and his lil brother. We re planning to go out for dinner. Nothing big for now.

Summertime, next year, we are planning to have a big wedding. All his family, friends will be invited. My mum and my sister plus my uncle and cousin and my best friend will come too.

My wife's family didn't attend, my husband would have been mad!! ;)

My non-USC husband's mother and father, niece and nephew, and former bandmate all attended (and stayed with us for the wedding.) My (wonderful) MIL did most of the cooking. It was really great. We had a church wedding and somewhere around 30 people at our self-catered in-home reception (because we couldn't afford to feed any more and no more Icelanders could come). We also learned we could have had more people, since Americans eat less than Icelanders. ;) (Our food calculations were based on Icelandic portion sizes).
