- Wedding: December 2012
Some of you have read my previous posts. I got Married in Mexico City December 2012.
It was a big 3 day event wedding. We had a Welcome Coktail in a beautiful Hacienda, We had a church wedding and then we had an after wedding brunch.
Before all this We had a Las vegas Civil Wedding. It was suposed to be just the 2 of us. But in the end my parents had to be there my brother his wife and children. Then my entire Family on my mom’s side crashed the wedding. It was amazing. We got married in the Gazebo at the flamingo. A limo drive around the strip to take pictures.We had a Morton’s steakhouse wedding menu.
So here comes my dilema.
My husband is French. At out wedding we had 300 Guests. He had 22. His parents and some of his closests friends. For those who already read my other post know the story and for those who didnt I will make it short.
The guests on my Husbands Side misbehaved and to be honest I was very disapointed. I dont want to say they ruined my wedding because that was impossible. But they did make it more dificult to enjoy the festivities.
My Mother in Law has often complained that her friends didnt come to the wedding. And that she didnt get to celebrate with them etc etc.
Since we didnt get to take lots of pictures on the same day. I told my husband why not take the pictures in Paris just the two of us. This gave him the idea of Having a Small Paris Wedding in the summer. With this parent’s friends and his friends who could not afford to travel to Mexico. This normally wouldnt be a bag thing. But My father already spent so so so so so so so much Money in our wedding I wont dare ask him for more. We had a perfect 4 event wedding and it is more than enough. Also after their bad beheaviour at our wedding I am very reluctant to actually see them Again and even worse paying for a Party for people who dont really like me.
We will be in Paris in August for another wedding. This is an important factor….I will follow on this a little later.We have a Nice Paris Loft and my Mom suggested we removed the furniture and have a Champagne and hors d oeuvre desserts wedding. I love this idea as I wouldnt have to spend to much and it is easy.My reputation is that I throw EPIC EVENTS. From birthday parties to my friend’s weddings. Coming back to the other wedding we are attending.
A couple friends of my Husband came to our wedding. We payed for their tickets. I cant even begin to tell you how bad they beheaved at the wedding and during the entire week we were supossed to see them but they decided to go to the beach instead………..anyways my husband loves them and he wants to go to their wedding and more of the evil guests will be there.
So If I throw an event i will give it my best and make something fantastic out of it. I have mixed feelings about this. On one side I feeel I had a big wedding and I dont want to spend anymore on people I dont know!!!! And I just shouldnt and at the same time I dont want to steal the spotlight from my Husband’s friends wedding. And another side that feels that why shoudnt I throw an epic party not just to show them how it is done but also to just be generous to my husbands Family that he loves very much.
What would you do?
Should I have a simple coktail and hors d oeuvres wedding with a super good dj and a Dance floor.
Full on wedding with a walk down the aisle 4 course meal in a Chateau and Just DO IT?
Any good ideas? Are there any Paris wedding Brides out there?
