Wedding Etiquette: Can We Have Two Wedding Ceremonies?

Q: I met my future husband online, and we come from different parts of the country. My family and friends can't come to a wedding in his area and his can't come to one in mine. Would it be appropriate to have two weddings, one in each hometown?

A: It would be completely fine to have more than one wedding celebration -- though it's too bad your families can't meet, it's a sure thing that both groups will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Wedding Gifts: Telling Wedding Guests How Wedding Cash Will Be Used?

My fiance and I did not register at any stores because I own my home and it is fully furnished. We are expecting we'll receive some cash gifts at the wedding and plan to use them on several home improvement projects, such as building a bar in our partially finished basement and doing some remodeling in our bathroom. Is it acceptable or appropriate to write about the use of the money in our wedding thank you notes?
