Regardless of if you were required to or if you did so voluntarily, good for us! I just wanted to wish you all encouragement. My wedding happened last week, it could not have been smaller, more intimate, less traditional, or any more anti-wedding establishment but it was also exactly us, totally a blast and completely paid for in cash from my fun money account! We made a conscious choice to choose what was important to us and cut waaaay back on everything else with the primary goal of having the entire day be FUN for us and for guests, and we succeeded! Our guests couldnt get over just how fun and un-conventional our wedding was but so us! The best part is because we barely noticed the expense, now that the wedding is done we are onto other exciting things. Just planned a trip to Vegas next month, a holiday shopping trip in Paris and signed a contractor to re-model my kitchen! Yaaaay! There is so much to look forward to after your wedding as you start your married life. Don’t lose sight of the goal at the end – being happily married and make choices to set yourself up for success! I see so many posts by Bees who are stressed or sad about having to cut back on their weddings and just wanted to offer some positive encouragement! If you did not have to cut back at all and are happy with your choices, fantastic! This is not meant to be a dig at anyone!
Just wanted to wish everyone in the planning phase some encouragement and if your wedding has already happened, please feel free to share some happiness about things that you scaled back on and were pleasantly delighted with! Let’s offer some stressed Bees encouragement!
