- Wedding: September 2013
I’ve posted before about issues with my wedding date and sister and received a lot of really nice advice. So now I’m reaching out again!
Here’s the scoop: I was originally planing a November ’13 wedding but my sister threw a fit because it was only 2 months after her wedding. Even though I was planning a tiny thing out of town and have been with my FI longer and blah blah blah. So, in the interest of not causing drama, we moved the wedding to next summer and agreed to have it in our hometown. Everything began spiralling out of control from there. And my small, intimate wedding was turning into a 100+ guests affair.
We got fed up with all of the planning and expectations and money and drama and decided to get married while on vacation with my family this September. My sister says she is ok with it being so close to hers because it will be so small (20-30 guests, only a few of which will actually be attending her wedding). So now that family drama is out of the way I’m starting to freak out a bit about planning in such a short amount of time!
We’re getting married on the beach in front of the house we’re staying in. So venue is taken care of. I’m bringing a friend/videographer down and forgoing a professional photographer. So that’s taken care of as well.
Do any of you destination/elopment/last minute brides have any advice? Thank you so much in advance!!
