I've read conflicting advice regarding the etiquette of announcing an elopement and then inviting guests to a party to celebrate the marriage. Is it appropriate for the announcement and invitation to be printed in the same card, or do you have to send the announcement first and then follow it with a separate party invitation later?
And I've also read that it is not appropriate for the bride to wear her wedding dress during the whole of the post-elopement party. Firstly, why is that? Secondly, does the same rule hold true if the bride was married in a non-traditional red dress?
