did anyone have a really SMALL wedding, but without intending to, and how did you feel about it?

Recommended Posts

Don't know how many guests  I will have as of yet for my jan 2012 wedding, but so far only have 12guests booked. I am thinking maybe 25 guests will attend. But to comment on what you wrote, trust me the most important person to see your dress is your husband. At least I feel this way, I can't wait to see the look on his face when he sees me.

@MichCraw... Sorry about your Dad's negativity,but you obviously have a really good handle on it!  Once people know they can't affect you anymore I have found they tend to back off. That's good that your deadline is approaching, then all there is left to do is final details and to get excited!!! I am so anxious for that day to come no matter how many guests I will have. The "what if's",  "how many's", unknowns anf family drama make a happy time too stressful!! lol But I know you all are right there with me ;)  I think your 12 guests are going to be perfect!! That is approx what my friend had for her DW and it really was perfect. There were enough of us to really feel all the love, but no one ever felt left out and she didn't have to stress about "making the rounds" as brides end up doing in big weddings because we all got to sit at the same table! I am so excited for you!! Congrats and best of luck to you!!

haha, thanks!  all i am saying is i had one couple book about 2.5 months before......so you never know. although it was a couple who had shown interest early on i suppose.  and i totally think that your 16 total will be awesome! 


oh and my AHR went pretty good!  showing the video didn't work out as planned, but oh well. we did pictures in the afternoon and i got to wear my dress again which was super fun!  when i get the pics back next week i will post a recap  :)

I'm happy with the little bunch that we have... 12 total plus FI, myself, & the two kids... and actually i'm "over" when it came to my prediction of how many people would come.. so can't be disappointed about that! Did you have your AHR.. how did that go????

    • 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?
