If you were planning my wedding..

Recommended Posts

What would you do? So Cain and I are leaning towards Un-inviting our guests, with only his Mom and Aunt (who is Cain's age) attend. So I'm looking for advise on how you would plan my wedding with only two guests attending, keep in mind that Cain does want a stupid cake regardless, and I still want a bouquet. But I thought it would be fun to throw this out to you guys to see how you would plan a "very small" simple wedding. Our colors are green and ivory.

I think if we were only going to have 2 people with us, I would throw most of the traditions to the wind---- get rid of everything except the cake and bouquet. I'd want to stand right by the water for the ceremony/vows and I'd probably want to custom write the ceremony and vows. I'd do some photos after the ceremony and then take everyone out for a really extravagant dinner (no custom centerpieces, placecards, table numbers, etc...) at a local restaurant and do a small cake there. After dinner, I'd probably just want to spend time alone with hubby for awhile---- sitting on the beach and just talking for forever....

 

When we talked about going to St. Thomas by ourselves, that's kind of what we had planned---- we wanted a simple ceremony without any decorations/chairs and afterward, planned on chartering a yacht from New Horizons for a cocktail sunset cruise, and then having a really nice dinner at Havana Blue. After dinner, we were going to head to Iggie's bar for drinks/dancing and then end the day sitting on the beach talking until the sun came up...

I agree with that dinner idea. Don't worry about music or centerpieces or table linens. Just go out and have an amazing dinner - then walk the beach at night with your new husband.

I would probably have the weding at the beach, have the VERY fancy dinner, with some special touches (cake , exchange a memento with your MIL and aunt- maybe a framed picture). Then arrange for a private picnic on the beach with new hubby, blanket, canddles, champagne, strawberrys, extra special chocolate, your favorites.

 

Enjoy!!!

Do you guys think I should have chairs for Marty and Missy for the ceremony? Would it look weird? I can do one small cake for the four of us, but what about witnesses? I need 4.

I say.. forget them. And just the 2 of you go away. Un-invite them all. And dont even worry about anyone else!

I couldn't do that, Cain and Marty are really close as it's her only son and he doesn't have a father so they have a very strong bond. I like the idea though of after dinner Cain and I go for a walk on the beach alone..

me too probably - but I know you can't get out of having Marty there.

 

i think you can "hire" witnesses - just have randsom hotel people, or the WC can arrange some people.

    • 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?
