While we have been working on planning our small Vegas wedding, I have had some people mention certain things/people that they have to have when they get married (dad to walk them down the aisle, specific type of dress, that kind of thing).
So, I was wondering, what is the one thing, that is most important to you for your wedding? And if you don’t mind, share what type of wedding you had- traditional, casual, destination, elopement, etc.

Using my mom’s veil!!!!!!

@jvangorden9: The part where I get to kiss my FI! But if you want an actual item that we are paying for, the venue was the most important. We’re splurging because it is an amazing location and includes so much. We will probably spend less on other things as a result. We are having a “destination” wedding. Its in our hometown, where our parents live, but its several states from us. We have 80% OOT guests, but getting married anywhere else would have had even more OOT guests :).

If I had to pick one *thing* (yes, we all wanted our groom there), I’d probably pick a dress and veil. I really wanted to look like a bride on my wedding day, for both of us. The rest of it, I didn’t care too much about.

Other than my future husband, my dad has to walk me down the aisle. Those are the only things I’ll need.

I was starting to wonder if I was missing something because I am just focused on my and FI and a wonderful time! It seems that everyone else wants me to live out their wedding dreams….guess that’s what people tend to do when people plan weddings though 🙂
Yes, we have a few close friends coming along to celebrate for a few days, but if they couldn’t make it I would understand. My mom won’t fly no matter what, with 4 younger siblings at home and a crazy job, my dad can’t just get up and leave very easily and FI’s parents just used all vac time to see their new grandchild in CA (we are from NY). Plus, we have been together for 9 years and a smaller, fun wedding like Vegas just seems to fit us, even if some ppl think I am nuts and am throwing away their “dream wedding” plans. My only problem…I want to get on the plane and go NOW!!! LOL

The only thing really was that I wanted to wear white, as far as “things” specific to a wedding. I mostly didn’t care where or when or in front of whom, but to feel bridal I had to have that white dress. I didn’t care if I had a veil (though I did end up with one, as an accessory only – not in front of my face).
I had a pretty casual 80-person afternoon wedding. No dancing, no dad walking me down an aisle, no bells and whistles.

A few things I guess haha…
- My Dad to walk me down the aisle
- My Grandad to be a part of the ceremony
- Having it in my church (I’ve gone to this church for 20 years, my dad’s the pastor)
I guess I had lots of most important things haha

Well if I had to say an actual item it would be my dress. FI and I are high school sweethearts and our wedding is actually our 11 year anniversary as well, so for most people when we told them we were engaged it was “about time” or ” you guys are practically married anyways” so I needed to feel like a “real” bride. As for the actual most imporantatnt part of my wedding is having my mom walk me down the aisle. My mom has been through a lot and as I have grown older and become a mother I realize how important and loving her decisions in my life have been.

As long as I have the groom and the dress I don’t care about anything else.

The most important part of the wedding for me….is the ceremony.

The most important thing (after marrying the groom, of course) was having my grandparents there. They never travel but travelled to my wedding in a different state. I would have changed everything to have them there.

Photographs are most important to me. I am sure it will be an awesomely fun time, but I love having pictures of everything important in life like trips or parties or whatever, and I LOVE to scrapbook. So I am most excited about that!

Aside from my wonderful FI, the vows were very important to me. I wanted them to be personalized.

Aside from the actual vows, the reception location was #1 priority. We wanted something specific to our interest in late 1800’s/early 1900’s history, and felt like it would set the tone for everything else. I’d say we’re having a traditional but destination wedding.
