- Wedding: August 2012
Many of you probably don’t know who I am, and many of you have probably forgotten who I am, but I was once a pretty active little bee on these boards when I first got engaged in 2010. I stopped coming around a while ago when there were a few select bees constantly stirring the pot and creating unneeded troll-like drama (not to mention I was dealing with my own issues).
I’ve been lurking for a few days now and have decided that I really need to get back into the swing of things, and planning is once again on track!
One of the problems I was having with planning was trying to please everyone besides myself (something I vowed to myself I’d never let happen…sigh). To make it easy for our nerves (and ultimately JUST what I wanted), we’re getting married at the courthouse August 17th, and throwing a huge reception-type party August 31st. We’re completely skipping the church wedding and only inviting our parents, siblings, grandparents, and a select couple cousins, bringing the total of people invited to a maximum of 20 people (though the reception 2 weeks later is a whole ‘nother story).
Anyone else going this route as well? Why did you decide to go the courthouse/JOP route?
