We decided to invite everyone we would have invited if we were getting married at home knowing that everyone would not come. I figured that I would probably get about 20 people between immediate family and close friends, but actually ended up with 45! I am shocked, but couldn't be happier. All of my favorite people are going to be there and I am so excited that my friends and I get to have one last hoorah before a couple of them start trying to get pregnant. I am getting married at Dreams Cancun and the prices are very reasonable. Our ceremony will be at a gazebo by the ocean and then the reception will be right on the beach:) I can't wait. Good luck to all the brides trying to make the decision. Just keep in mind that it is your day and you should do whatever makes you happy.

Follow your heart.

 

I am toying with the exact topic right now and have decided that we will invite everyone we would have had it been a "normal" wedding at home; however, I would love to be able to put in some type of caveat that let's people know we would love for them to be part of our day, but completely understand if they can't make it. That way, it's their choice with no pressure.

 

I would imagine the people who come are going to be the people you would truly want there anyway.

 

Good luck!!!

You have to go with what your heart tells you. BUT... my new hubby and I just returned from getting married just the 2 of us and it was PERFECT! It was so beautiful and personal and I couldn't have asked for more. We were able to focus on each other and why we were there without having to worry about entertaining guests. We're going to have a small AHR in a few weeks for close friends and family. We have tons of photos to share and, while I know my family would have loved to have been there on our day, they absolutely supported our decision to go on our own when they understood we were trying to keep the focus on our committment to each other and not on everything else surrounding a wedding. So, for us it was the absolute perfect way to begin our marriage.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
