Yay for perspective!  I’ve been trying to remind myself of this too, so thanks for the reality check 🙂

Yes, you are so right! I went to a couple of weddings this past month and felt the same way.  At the end of the day it’s all about YOU and your SO and celebrating your love with family + friends =)

Love that you came away with what was important! I’m going to a friends wedding this month and although I’m excited about seeing the details, being a new bride myself, I’m more excited to see their faces than anything!

Totally agree…I was at a wedding a few weeks ago that had no favors, no guest book, no noticeable DIY elements, no bouquet throw/garter toss..and it was SUCH a fun wedding, I didn’t even notice the lack of those things til I was going through my pictures.

I completely agree! We focus so much on the little details, which, while lovely and make for a beautiful wedding, are not always noticed by guests.  I plan on having one or two elements, like all candle centerpieces, family photos, etc, but I’m not doing favors (which, at the wedding I went to a few weeks ago were all left on the tables! They were DIY’d too, by my friend, the MOH.  Such a waste of energy to have them all left behind!) or anything that is a waste of time/money for no one to notice.  I’d rather spend my money on great food, a good DJ and the major elements that are important to my FI and I to have a great party with our friends & family.

This is a good reminder! One of the best weddings I ever went to had truly terrible food and a maniac DJ. BUT, the love between the couple, the family, and our group of friends was so present and incredible, it made for a truly special, uplifting, fun day.

Very true!  And as a former bride, I didn’t even notice all the details on my wedding day.  Saw them in the pictures though.

We did a million DIY projects for our wedding.  However, the bit that made me the happiest happened when I was talking to the manager of our reception venue, who is also a friend.  She told me, “If you put a blanket down on a concrete floor and asked your friends to come and celebrate with you, they would all be there and happy to do it.”  Being able to marry, and being surrounded by the love of our friends, was more important than any of the details!
