I just wanted to see if there was any other ladies on here who are having a simple wedding in terms of decoration and such? I keep looking through the forum here and seeing such wonderful ideas from other ladies so I feel like maybe I should do more?
I know every bride is different and it's just not me to spend tons of money on décor. Don't get me wrong, I am bringing down things for the tables and for the card table and lighting (Getting married at a beach club) and it's not going to look empty, I just am not spending the money on flowers or candles or for our ceremony décor like other women are... Not that anything is wrong with spending money on those things though!
Anyone else similar? LOL It would make me feel better!
I agree with the others--you have to do what makes you happy! Please don't do ANYTHING you don't want to do. I often look at different websites and think..oooo..that's so pretty!! But at the end of the day, I had to (with the help of my planner) figure out what MY style and what was important to me. For example, I nixed the cake topper because I didn't really want one. I also nixed the garter and bouquet toss because I didn't want those either. However, I wanted guests to interact, have fun with each other, and get to know us through our decor (e.g. photos). I'm not really doing flowers either--just a few rose petals scattered around the tables and some palm leaves. I'm also bringing things that I can use again, such as the star lanterns and mini-chalkboards.
However--I do think that it's worth thinking carefully about what you want to spend on lighting, given the location. From all that I've read, it's pretty dark out there at night!
