I didn’t think I’d get married in a church, ever. When planning my first wedding 9 years ago (the one that didn’t happen) I made my mom cry by insisting it be in a park and not at the church we went to all the time when I was growing up. I hated that church as I got older and didn’t even want to be in that building on my special day, let alone inviting any of the people there who I thought had slighted me in the past.

I guess I’ve gotten a little more traditional and matured in my feelings about religion in the last 9 years. I will be getting married in my grandparents’ church, which is also where my parents married, and I am completely comfortable with our choice to have a more religious, traditional ceremony than I ever thought I’d want. It’s actually REALLY important to me now.

There will even be a few people from the childhood church there, ones who are longtime friends of my parents. I’m at peace with that too. I was a bratty kid. Those people probably didn’t like me either.

Also, I never liked floating candles but for some reason my mom is attached to those so I think I’ll be having them.

Burlap and balloons ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was so against them because I didn’t want to seem too ‘country’ or too ’80’s’ but I love how we’ll be incorporating them .

Colored shoes! Smile

I know it’s a huge trend nowadays but the majority of brides that I’ve seen still go with white. I never really thought about it before I got engaged then I had my heart set on blue shoes (cobalt Hey Lady Twinkletoes to be exact).

We had a piñata. A couple of years ago, I would have thought that was crazy, but it really worked for our fun filled and joyous celebration!

Honestly? I never thought I’d actually wear a freaking dress. Let alone a dress that may have white on it. I used to be (and to an extent, still am) sooooo anti wedding dress. But heck, it’s the one (hopefully!) day of my life where I can wear something white and froofy and get away with it. So I am. I’m just going to embellish the heck out of it!

@FloretteLiz:  Im getting married bare foot.  But no one was really suprised as during the summer I am ALWAYS bare foot, and we are getting married in a field anyway. So it works.

Potluck reception. And I’m putting recipe cards in with every invite. I’ve never heard or seen the recipe card thing done, but I am excited for it. It is my secret way to get some great old family recipes that my friends have been holding on to too tightly. 

Also being married without a venue. We just picked some coordinates and said ‘let’s go there’

Two things come to mind.

One is our centerpieces. They are very strange and not normal, I can’t wait to unveil pics of them on the ‘Bee! Even though I know I’ll probably get mixed reactions (who cares, it’s done?!) the guests seemed to love them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hint: There was something edible involved.

The second thought was that…I NEVER thought I would end up the “barefoot bride.” I bought cute shoes, wore them for our first look and some pics and then…screw this. My feet hurt! So off they went. I walked down the aisle barefoot. Darling Husband got a kick out of it and said it was, “So me.” I hate wearing shoes.

I never thought I’d have a big wedding either. I would by NO means consider my wedding huge (110-ish invited, 80 showed) it was much larger than I’d imagined. I seriously pictured like 30.

@angellove2283:  Totally got married barefoot, though it wasn’t planned or “venue appropriate.” Lol. Yay for weirdos like us! ๐Ÿ˜‰

…how about, I never thought that I’d spend the equivalent of a down payment on a house on my wedding? ๐Ÿ™‚
