This is my first post here! I wish I could have been part of all the posts about veil, dresses, waiting,etc… But my wedding happened in a rush for administrative reasons and turned out not to be my dream pictured wedding…
At first I was thinking about doing a big ceremony a few months after the city hall part but now I’m reconsidering it because I feel like it’s not a wedding anymore… I kind of lost the excitment about looking for my dream dress, my dream location, etc… I also don’t really know how to name this ceremony since wedding already happened and am not sure if it’s worth the money, time and energy to do a big ceremony now.
Has anyone went through this? What would you do? My husband still thinks a big ceremony would be great but I just feel like my motivation is not there anymore even though I feel like this would be nice to have our family and friends to celebrate our union.

My husand and I got married at city hall also because we bought a house together and one month after moving in found out we were pregnant. We weren’t going to tell our family and just move forward with original plan getting married that October in Charleston, SC which was 5 months away. However the closing the “real” wedding got and the bigger my tummy got I decided I didn’t want to walk down the isle pregnant so we cancelled everything. We lost a lot of money because we had put deposits down on everything. Once it was done I was surprisingly okay with not having a “wedding”…for a while. I started wishing I had my day where I got my hair and makeup done and get to walk down the isle in a beautiful dress. Three years later we had a vow renewal with about 25 close family members and friends. It was beautiful! We all deserve our special day. With all that being said. Have a vow renewal so you have no regrets 🙂

Your ceremony would be called a vow renewal. You cannot have a wedding twice with the same man unless there was a divorce. If your husband would like a big ceremony, it might be worth it to go ahead if it doesn’t bother you to have a big ceremony. You might find that you enjoy planning the ceremony after all. I know that my husband and I are finding planning romantic.
My husband and I eloped four years ago due to family issues and budget constraints.It did not go well for many reasons and my family was very hurt, so we are renewing our vows in Niagara Falls next year.
There will be many wedding elements such as a poufy gown, a church ceremony, cake and reception in a luxury hotel. We have more money to spend and we have been through so much in only five years of marriage. I know my mother would like to see me in a wedding gown.

Are you religious? Or spiritual?
I am getting married legally (which I don’t consider it a wedding) some months before my actual wedding which will a catholic ceremony at the church and then the wedding reception.
I know I’ll be legally married before my wedding ceremony but I won’t consider myself oficially married until it’s done legally and religiously.
