      I agree with everyone else - Do what you want. If you have things that you think you're "supposed" to have, but don't like, you're not going to enjoy your own wedding. You've had enough stress from the Bermuda experience - make the rest of your wedding planning and day the best that it can be - YOUR WAY.

        I agree with all the other BDW girls, you are definitely making a statement that your wedding will reflect you and your FI's style, which is perfect! I think sometimes these traditions become cookie-cutter and people get bored with the same old thing, so I think this is great! Good luck!

          Well now you have the BDW consensus! :-)

          Have a kick arse wedding that reflects you and your FI. Have fun with it and enjoy every moment!

            I wouldn't be disappointed if I was at your wedding and you didn't do all the "wedding-y" stuff. Your wedding sounds WAY more fun to be at than 99% of the weddings I've been too. Do it your way and if people piss and moan about it -- they can go f**k themselves.

            Heheh, sorry that sounds a bit harsh but that's the way I think!

              Finally! my kind of bride!!! I think your's will be the funnest party ever!! Traditions are almost a thing of the past! Make your own new traditions and that will have everyone talking.

              We need to stop worrying about what other people think of us, and instead focus on ourselves. It seems like weddings are almost a competition these days. I love your idea!

                Just an update...The wedding was last night and it was amazing!!! (with the exception of my dress. I had major back fat and am hoping pics come out ok) Everyone kept telling us that the best part of a wedding is the cocktail hour and the mingling, and basically our entire wedding was that! Also that it felt like it was really long (in a good way) because we didn't do any of the "wedding" stuff, so the fun never stopped. The food was ridiculous good and the venue was incredible. If you know anyone who is looking for a venue in NJ, Clark's Landing is incredible!

                      i totally agree.there are only 4 of us going to mexico so we are having a big ahr when we get back but to our families it is our wedding.friends keep asking questions about first dance song and cake and we are like no guys there will be nothing like that its just a mexican party.we are having a photographer but thats it.

                      they are like what,but think back to when you have been to weddings.even though you expect all of the traditional stuff it is rather boring.

                      go for what you want.
