  • Wedding: February 2014

@FutureMrsB123:  We originally planned on doing a courthouse wedding with a nice dinner following and a 4 day weekend to stay in a hotel for the honeymoon with spa and dinners. Now we are doing our wedding at his families vacation home. The more I think about it I would rather just do the courthouse wedding for the two of us than anything else. Im just done with the planning and having to deal with details and people for it. I’d just see what kind of atmosphere you want at the wedding.

  • Wedding: June 2014

@FutureMrsB123:  I went the courthouse route and it couldn’t have been any more impersonal & unromantic. BOOOOOoooo! Now I’m planning a vow renewal because I have had NoWedding celebration regret for 6 long years and it feels rather generic.

April is a nice weather month, not too hot or cold, perfect for outdoor, well– Depending on where you are. You could try to find a scenic tree nursery, in keeping with your Arbor Day date & adopt that as a theme? Or a nice park? Someone with a nice home who’s willing to host for you maybe? since it sounds like you’re sticking to a smaller event either way.

Imagine the rest of your ideal wedding day & get to planning! You don’t get a do over, this is your one chance. 🙂 Embrace it, frustration and all.

  • Wedding: October 2013 - The Fox Hill Inn

@FutureMrsB123:  What a friend of mine did was have a courthouse wedding midweek with just 2 friends there as witnesses (I think they did it Wednesday or Thurdsay?). Then on Saturday, they had a party at a local restaurant and had lots of friends there. It was a way for all of us to celebrate their getting married even though we couldn’t be at the courthouse. That seems to be a way to combine both your courthouse wedding and your new idea? No one says your party/”reception” has to be on the same day!
