    My sister and mom have said I was cookie cutter my entire life and it drives me insane. My wedding had unique touches to it but of course it had some of the same things that other wedding do. I don’t care. I loved my wedding so much, it was a perfect day! Cookie cutter or not, do what you want.

    It’s a wedding.  The only certainties are that you will be legally tied to your DH and that someone’s gonna complain.  If you do all the “traditional” stuff then people are going to call it cookie cutter and if you don’t then people are going to say it was too radical.  Do what you want and don’t worry about what other people think.

    Meh, not really… the fact that mine is going to be like a 5 hour long cocktail hour makes it different from any wedding I’ve gone to of my family and friends! I don’t worry too much about comparing my wedding to strangers, but I do sometimes hope that mine stands out to my family and friends. Cant help it! I’m not trying to go tooooo crazy overboard though just to make an impression. Ultimately I just want the day to reflect me, my FI, our love, and our future together 🙂

    I can understand the worry, and I’ve had it one or two times during the planning process. However…

    My wedding will certianly not be “cookie cutter” in the eyes of myself, FI, and our families. If someone else wants to label it as such, fine. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!

    You need to add the following options to your poll:

    – Cookies are delicious!

    – Mmmm, cookies …

    – “C” is for cookie, it’s good enough for me …

    @StuporDuck:  I agree. Even if my wedding is “cookie cutter” it won’t bother me at all! As long as everyone has a good time and FI and I are married at the end of the day I’ll be happy.

    I tend to dislike anything “cookie cutter,” so I doubt there would be many things I would keep that would be considered “cookie cutter.”  I may keep “standard” things, or “traditional” things, but I do not consider those to be “cookie cutter.”

    And just keep this comeback in your back pocket: if they start throwing around “cookie cutter” remarks, just say “there’s nothing wrong and a lot right with having a traditional wedding.”

    I’ve never suffered from the belief that my wedding needs to be a special, unique snowflake that is somehow different from everybody else’s. It was special to us because it was our wedding, nobody else’s.

    Our priorities while planning were that we wanted it to be beautiful and we wanted everyone to have fun. We did end up with some elements that were very personal, but we didn’t plan them because they were different, just because they meant something to us.

    Also, using “cookie cutter” venues means that the staff was very experienced and everything went very smoothly, plus everything was taken care of for us.
