What advice can you give me for a belated wedding reception?

I was married last summer and will be having a wedding reception this spring.

The one thing you want to let people know for sure either in the save-the-dates or invitations, is that the actual ceremony was already held the summer before. You may also want to include the exact date, just so they don't feel left out.

A great idea is to include as much of the ceremony day as poosible. If you have photos or video from the ceremony you can have a montage made(short movie with your favorite music) and played up on a screen at the reception so guests can see

Make sure you get your invitations out early, and have your guests RSVP. Try to make the decor wedding-like, but also keep it light. People are attending a celebration of your wedding, which has already taken place, and you want them to enjoy themselves. Keep the focus on your joyous marriage, and enjoy yourselves!

Go for a relaxed reception. Devise ways to make your guests feel part of, or recall, the wedding service. Show video, pictures-- anything to make them feel included.
