Best Way To Reach 150 Posts?!?!? To Access The Good Stuff!

Recommended Posts

just want to add - don't feel that just because other brides have done x, that you HAVE to do x too "because all DW brides do x". x being key card holders, OOT bags, wrapped lights around poles, a huge cake - all of it. 

 

it's been my experience that guests will enjoy whatever you put together, and won't simply DIE if your wedding doesn't include x. it's YOUR wedding, make it your own and do it your way (well you & your FI). prioritize spending based on what's most important for you, and go from there. it doesn't have to be elaborate or pinterest-detailed/extravagant. just my $0.02 worth - keep the change! ;)

 

 

 

@@rachelia160, I'm afraid of doing this too.

@@AllieH, great advice!!! We like things simple and plain so maybe having all this stuff isnt us. Plus we are having a small group 2-12 so its easy to share info.

 

Thanks for reminding me, I may need this reminder again over the next year and a half!!

ha - anytime @@Surfingsara !! a dear friend of mine had a very small DW with about 12. she chose to have a ceremony and then a lovely meal on a terrace by the beach, no reception or dancing necessary. they spend the entire week with their guests - some did excursions, some didn't. it was perfect for them! 

 

beautiful settings don't require a ton of icing. very simple is also beautiful.

@@AllieH, oh that's exactly what I want!!! Except I want to dance!

I'm all about dancing. I've taken a few dance classes in college and am a Teaching Assistant for that class. This sounds bad, but my cat becomes my dance partner when I'm practicing at home since my fiance isn't into formal dancing. Hes good at 90's club dances, but I cant do them to save my life. He has said he will be willing to learn a dance for the wedding. :)

 

I like you calling it frosting. Do you know what little things your friend did do? Luggage tags, paper products and so on? I really think our space and beach speaks for its self. So I want to play on this beauty. I also know the little things cause me to stress out and a big reason I chose a destination wedding was to limit stress so I could actually enjoy it. I want the wedding to be more about us than us throwing a party for everyone. I know this is not how most weddinds are, but I've always done things a little different.

 

I love all the little details everyone on here has done/ planned and if I had endless time and money I would do it too, but I dont.

 

I know that I tend to have great ideas for a project, but most of the time they are too grand to be completed in my time frame of the project. I'm actually having to rewrite the scope of a project because I'll never be able to accomplish what I want to do within my time frame.
