What do you want to know from us Married Gals?

Recommended Posts

If you had one question (or two, or ten), what would you want to know?

 

What behind the scenes information can we provide? There's so much that we can help with in terms of what something was like, what was/wasn't stressful, what we didn't expect, what was a wonderful surprise, etc.

 

How can we help?

I'll start...
In the end, was it all worth it? Was it worth leaving some people out to have a destination wedding? Do you ever wish you had a "traditional" wedding?

I can say without hesitation that having a DW was the right choice for us. Spending three days instead of three hours with a smaller group of people was priceless.

 

I think one of the important things to remember is that when you have a DW, you can do things "against" tradition, since you are basically throwing tradition out the window in the very beginning. You can keep things really simple and avoid unnecessary stress and headache. Focus on having fun with your hubby and your guests and don't worry so much about flowers/favors/decor/seating charts/etc.

We both have repeatedly stated that this was the only way for us. We love to travel and really liked incorporating our family into our holiday.

 

Being grounded in the sand with the waves crashing surrounded by a close group of friends and family and one big ol' party with fireworks and firedancers was priceless. Everyone keeps telling us that it's the best wedding they have been to (and many have said including their own). We couldn't have replicated that in San Diego.

 

Yes, some people couldn't come and many others (mostly extended family) weren't invited, but most of them would have balked at the imposition we were making on them by having to travel to San Diego anyway or they would have thought that we were fishing for gifts.

 

We were thrilled our choice and ifeel t was the best way for us to start our official life together.

i can honestly say it was one of the best choices we made. our friends and family are still talking about it! my mom who was the most against it now tells EVERYONE who will listen that it was the best thing and the funnest wedding.

also, DH and i were just talking about it but our families became really close in the week we were in mexico. they would not have that same relationship if we had a local wedding.

we really had such an amazing time...not just the wedding but the whole week!

Tammy that's a good point....our families and our friends got to know each other so well over the weekend. We has guests from something like 20 different states, from all stages of our lives, and to have them all come together and actually become friends over the weekend was awesome.

Oh me...I want to go next...after TammyM's question

I want to know what is the one thing you did not have (tradition wise) you wish you would have and what is the one thing you feel you didn't really need after all (like programs, menus, favors, etc)
