Wedding thoughts

I've thought about combining my wedding ceremony with my retirement party; sort of an end if one chapter and the beginning of another. Is this a good idea? Where should I begin?

    It’s not a terrible idea but I feel like I’d wanna give each a separate celebration

    I like this idea. Especially if the two parties were going to have to be very close together, it saves time and energy for you to just do both

    I wouldn’t do this. Your wedding isn’t just about you, it’s about you and your FH and the celebration of your marriage.
    A retirement party is just about the person retiring so it would just be about you. Doesn’t your FH deserve to be celebrated at his wedding too?

    I agree with PP. I would keep them separate. If you want to do a nod to your retirement you could do a fun cake or something.

    I also agree that I would keep the two separate. A wedding is about the couple, but a retirement party is about the individual person.

    I would keep them separate. Your wedding day is a very special day that you share with your life partner and I think that should be the focus of the day.

    Thank you all for your comments; I truly appreciate your insight and opinions. I will take what you all have said and give it serious thought. I haven't begun to plan anything at all so now is the best time to change perspective.
