I don’t think planning a wedding like that is “boring”

You will be fine. Your wedding won’t be boring, and most people have no idea women out there are doing these trendy weddings or rustic weddings or anything like that because they don’t spend hours a day looking at Pinterest and the Bee.

@MrsFutureG:  Mine was almost as basic as you can get. Our ceremony was in the house of our Justice of the Peace, our photographers were our 6 of our friends and family with cameras, no dancing or special songs, no decoration or invitations, we went to Applebees afterwards and then back to our apartment for cake that was bought at a grocery store. The only big splurges we had were my dress and his tux.

I’m pretty sure a lot of ladies would cry if they had to have my wedding lol.

Ha! The theme of our wedding was “wedding” 🙂 We did have a photobooth, but otherwise I thought it was fairly “typical” – church ceremony, ballroom reception. But of course the actual wedding/day-of was NOT boring! It rocked.

I’m going to the registry office and then treating our family and friends to a meal in a local country pub. That’s it nothing more nothing less. I’m then treating my new husband to the most amazing honey moon we  can afford.

@MrsFutureG:  Haha, I had none of those things! A belly dancer… that would be special!

We didn’t have a lot of “extras” to our wedding and it most certainly wasn’t boring!  Everyone had an amazing time!!  The only thing we did was take dance lessons for our first dance – but that was mostly because my husband and I had wanted to take lessons for awhile but they were too expensive… so we had an excuse! LOL  I actually went to a wedding that had a ton of “extra” things and it was kinda like a carnival – there was just too much going on… candy buffet in this corner, photo booth over there, shot wheel at the bar, just too much.  She and her husband loved it which was great for them but it wasn’t my style.  You need to plan the wedding that will make YOU happy! Don’t worry about what the wedding industry is making you feel like you NEED to have. The only thing you NEED is vows so you’re married when all is said and done. =)

we are having a basic church wedding with the reception at a golf club afterwards (hopefully) we did want to make it personal though and decided to put some of the books we have as centerpieces, name each table after a book and will make personalized bookmarks as escort cards/favours 🙂

there are definitely ways to add your own personal style (and if your style is simply traditional that’s ok! :)) with not much budget

Your wedding will be awesome– dont worry! We didn’t have a bunch of bells and whistles at all, and people still commented that it was the most fun wedding they have been to!

I think the most important part of a wedding is the people…you and your new husband, and your closest family/friends to support you.  Excuse my cheesiness, but love makes for the best weddings (and yes, I just started singing “all you need is love”).  No trendy details necessary! 🙂

I know exactly how you feel!  I am pretty hopeless when it comes to decorating, DIY projects, etc.  Periodically, I have moments of panic that despite all the effort I’m putting into planning, the result will be a very cookie-cutter, generic wedding.  On the other hand, when I think about the best weddings I’ve attended, good food and music were really what mattered most, so keeping that in mind makes me feel better.
