Hmm... maybe you all disagree, but I think weddings should be a little selfish... It's about you, your husband and your families!


We're having an intimate wedding with just the two of us, because we believe that the marriage should be about us, and not what everyone else wants it to be..We're celebrating that we're going to spend the rest of our lives together, that we love each other, and that we're creating a new family together! 


Everyone else can say exactly what they want. As long as you and your closest family and friends are happy with your decision, screw everyone else (pardon my french)! :) Go ahead and enjoy your planning, your husband to be, your family and your friends <3 I know that your wedding will be perfect, because it's going to be just the way YOU want it!

A wedding is about the couple. NO ONE else. I do believe it's a time to thank our parents (or close friends/family, whoever you may feel has been an important part of your live) and to celebrate with them. But in the end, it's all about the marriage of the couple. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise =)

    Thank you everyone! I really appreciate your support and for some reason, it makes me feel better to know that I'm not alone. Sometimes I just have trouble brushing off the rude comments!

    I am fearing this response from people but so far ones we have talked to have been supportive. I may be disappointed when RSVPs start coming back- but so far everyone is excited about the prospect of a week in the sun. I'm soooo scared about people secretly resenting us for it though. The people pleaser in me really is conflicted about a DW but I decided that instead of worrying I plan on just spoiling our guests who DO come, with lots of extras and treats.... Plus a fabulous resort.
