- Wedding: October 2016
I am been trying to plan a small wedding (informal) on the beach but then when I started digging into everything that needed to be done (first marriage for me), I started to get stressed, big time. Part of me wants to have that kinda wedding that a woman wants but at the same time I am marrying the love of my life and it shouldn’t have to be all about glitz and glamour to have the best day of my life, right? We have been throwing around the idea of a courthouse wedding, has anyone had a courthouse wedding and what couldn’t you give up from the traditional route? (Dress, flowers, hair, cake etc..) I still would like my dress and I love ball gowns and princess styles, is that too much for a courthouse wedding? I don’t know how I would look in anything showing leg like some of the courthouse wedding dresses I have seen. I would love to keep my dress style, need photos and cake (other than the honeymoon) maybe flowers? Would I need flowers? Could just buy some from the grocery store but what would I do to make it a bouquet? I tried looking up easy hairstyles on youtube, found one or two, has anyone else tried that as well? Publix cakes, are they reasonable? Sorry for all the questions, so new at this. FYI: My FI has 3 kids from his previous marriage, money goes to them, car & truck payment, apt rent etc, one of the reasons why we we’re looking at something easier on the budget. Need help ladies, don’t know what to do.
