- Wedding: January 2013
i have always thought about having a decent regular wedding but turns out we may have to have a court wedding instead. i figured we would have the regular big wedding a few months to a year after. but…..after looking into a court wedding and seeing how small and intimate it is, not sure if its really needed to have a big one. and plus all the money! its too much! and my guy dosent have a big family like i do and i figure a big one would be weird if its mostly my family. and i would try to personalize the court wedding as much as possible and have close family and friends there. and have a small reception at a nice local place.
but my dad is really looking forward to a big wedding! any get together with family is always a joy for him! and there are things to a big wedding i would miss…father daughter dance, seeing lots of family and friends all together, fun,music, getting ready with my mom, lots of photos! music and personalizing our ceramony and all the details and taking time with it.
with the court its cheaper and quicker and not a lot of attention (which we both dont mind cause were kinda private like that.) but i dont want to disappoint family by not including everyone!
anyone out there deciding to ditch their big day for the small one? but still figured a way to make extended family and friends included?
i thought about video taping it and sending it to people and having a bbq a few months after even… but its just not the same…ugh! need advice thanks 😀
