    Ok since I am not the first now I would like to modify my list because I would like to agree with purrfected's inclusion of FI family. I don't want to be catty but I have been with him for so many years (over 20) and they have never been very nice. And as far as stiffness goes girls I am sure you all agree we could all do without that until our wedding night!!

      My must haves:

      - my closest family and friends
      - a moment with my parents before we head to the chapel
      - a moment for FH and I to be alone after the ceremony to take in the fact that we're actually married
      - at least one amazing wedding photo taken
      - good food
      - plenty of drinks
      - lots of laughter
      - waterproof makeup :P

      Things I could do without:

      - a stunning bouquet
      - centerpieces
      - aisle/table runners
      - chapel decorations
      - identically dressed bridal party

              YAY!! I'm loving everyone's lists. As for the in laws, I've been w/ FI since 2001 and I feel like I'm only now (meaning 2 weeks ago) getting to know them.

              Must Have -
              - Dancing and laughter!

                Must have: Being married to my soul mate at the end of the day.

                Don't care: All the rest of it

                (I wanted to just drive through a chapel in Vegas, but my sweetie wanted something closer to a "real" wedding.)

                  must haves are photography, decorations , coordination, music, good food and entertainment

                  Not important - cake toppers, chair covers, placecards, centerpieces, etc

                    Must Haves
                    Great Dress
                    Great food and plenty of alcohol
                    My mom, brother, sister, and best friends
                    Beautiful ceremony location
                    Excellent pictures
                    Our first dance as husband and wife

                    Don't Cares
                    Extravagant centerpieces
                    Garter and bouquet toss
                    All the extra traditional dances

                    I'm sure there are other 'dont cares' but I can't think of anymore.
