Small & Simple Weddings

Recommended Posts

I'm sure some brides have had or are planning a small wedding for 10 or less. Are you planning to keep things simple since you have less people? I believe the bulk of my expenses will be travel and possibly photograpy. I'm having a hard time settling on a budget amount since I'm planning a smaller gathering. What are some of the things that you are doing to keep it simple?

I am moving this thread to the appropriate sub-forum - please pay attention to where you post as the Mods try very hard to keep the forum clean and organzied.

Thanks,
Alyssa

Are you planning on treating your guests to a tour or excursion since you'll have such a small group? I was thinking of doing this but I'm not sure if the budget will allow. I do want to express my appreciation to those who come in some type of way. Just not sure how yet..

You did post it in the Jamaica section - that was the issue - the topic really has nothing to do with Jamaica or any specific location or site there - it is "Chit Chat" so I moved it here :)

Gotcha. I'm still learning. I now get what you are saying. Not all topics need to go in the Jamaica forum just because it's my location. Thanks for the clarification!

Nope we aren't paying anything for them - they are going on holiday and we are already taking a day out of their holiday for our wedding so not taking anymore of their time. Also if we do it for one we have to do it for everyone and I can't be with FMIL for more than 5 minutes before I want to stab her in the throat lmao

Our wedding was very intimate - we only invited our immediate families, so we had a total or 8 guests. We stayed at a Sandals resort for our entire trip, and our families stayed at a Beaches, and came to our resort for the wedding and reception. We kept things very simple, but opted for a few ceremony and reception upgrades, and still did the traditional first dance and father/daughter dances. We kept things simple by not taking suitcases full of OOT bag stuff. Instead we made small OOT bags and gave them out a couple of weeks before the wedding. We also didn't do a lot of DIY projects that we or our guests had to truck down to Jamaica. I made programs and that was it.

 

Bottom line is that our wedding was simple and beautiful, and because we didn't have to worry about putting together OOT bags at the resort, delivering OOT bags at the resort, or making sure we didn't go over our baggage limit bc we packed DIY projects and wedding decorations, we were able to thoroughly enjoy every minute before AND after our wedding.

Thanks! OOT bags was another thing I was worried about. I was thinking of not giving them out at all. I did not want to lug a whole bunch of stuff out of town with me. So I think it's a great idea to give them out before the wedding. I haven't gotten to the DIY stage, but I'm sure it will be fun. I'm looking forward to trying some crafty projects, especially if it can save me $$ in the long run.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
