  • Wedding: October 2013


My friends had a family-only wedding in her Aunt’s garden on the coast.  I saw the photos, it was beautiful and moving and exactly what they wanted. They had an afternoon tea there to celebrate


Then after their honeymoon they invited all of their friends (including me) to a posh Indian restaurant for a set price banquet to celebrate their marriage- no presents, just pay for your own banquet.  It was perfect. As friends, we didn’t have to do our heads in thinking of a wedding present (they had already been living together for several years), they didn’t have to go to the cost and expense of a wedding dinner and everyone had a good time.


If you go against convention and do some variation of this, you may encounter some opposition from some close family and friends. 


But here’s the rub- I am having a traditional wedding and I still get some odd comments and criticism over things I am doing.


Know that whatever you do, YOU CANNOT KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY.  It is important to consider your parents’ wishes and those people you love but….


Be true to yourselves 🙂  Le this be your guide.
