I think that is really sweet!  I think that if it’s more you and your FI then that is definitely what you should do 🙂

I would suggest going to eat somewhere afterwards that you wouldn’t normally go to though – just so it’s a little more special.  But that’s me 🙂

-Good Luck!

I like it- do what makes you feel best you’re absolutely right about not needing to have a huge production just to satisfy others.

Sounds awesome to me. I would just check and make sure you dont need to rent the park. We have a lot of public parks near where I live, and even for a short 15-20 minute ceremony we would have to reserve it. It doesnt cost a huge amount and would give me peace of mind. I would hate to get fined on my wedding day 🙂

Honestly what you described sounds great. And frankly something I would love to do.. If it’s something that is going to make you happy I say go for it, because no matter how fancy the event is or how much money you spend someone will always have a criticism, someone will always be disappointed or have a different opinion on what should have happened. That’s just the nature of wedding, or any event really. You can’t please everyone, but you can make sure that you & your SO are happy 🙂

You are right – at the end of the day, the most important thing is being with the ones you love to witness your vows to one another. That’s what this thing is all about!

I love it! If I weren’t so cought up in the big wedding dream than that is exactly what I would want to do. I agree with eating a a restaurant or place you wouldn’t normally just to make the day even more special and out of the ordinary. You could even make that restaurant your anniversary spot. I think that would be sweet.

This reminds me of http://www.2000dollarwedding.com

They still had a wedding, but it was about them. After reading her blog my whole view changed. We are also having a park ceremony with an afternoon reception. There will be no DJ, just an ipod with a great list and lots of together time with the family. We are going to go to an Irish Pub later in the evening for an after party, but that’s a pay your own way thing and not really part of the wedding.
