    Hi Ladies,

    Just curious about what aspects of your big day are super important to you and which you couldn't care less about.

    So far, for me:

    Must Have:
    Close Fam/Friends
    Kickass Photographer
    Steel Pan Drummers

    Don't Care:
    Amazing Centerpieces
    Aisle Runner
    Cake Toppers

    What are your must haves / don't cares?

        Must haves :

        1. Family/friends
        2. Real champagne (not sparkling wine) and stunning food (my French side - I could not do a Mexican or BBQ wedding)
        3. More food and drinks than can be absorbed (I could not live with people being hungry or thirsty)
        4. Great music
        5. Professional photographer + videographer (for all those that could not make it)
        6. Intimacy (not a huge resort - not a crowded beach)

        Don't care :

        1. Matching colors
        2. Elaborate menus or place cards
        3. Centerpieces, flowers : the hotel and beach are so beautiful by themselves
        4. Aisle runner, bows on the chairs : we are on the beach... keep it simple
        5. Live music
        6. Cake (nobody will be hungry any more - see point 3 above lol)
        7. Speeches

        Must not have (I add to the list ) :

        1. Receiving line
        2. Feeding each other with the cake
        3. Garter toss
        4. Toast master / wedding bells
        5. Religious conotations

                  I think it's where you dance about people pin dollars on to you
