@Dutchbee:  “I just want to give up and just have a nice dinner with friends and family and call it a day…”

If that would make you happy, then that is what you should do 🙂 It’s so easy to lose sight of what really matters on a wedding day: the two of you being married surrounded by people you love…and having fun 🙂

There is NO shame in a simple wedding 🙂

We have chosen an all inclusive package so that we don’t have to worry about a thing. It’s convenient for us. Everything in the one place.

@Dutchbee:  Well, in any case, choose the option that is less complicated 🙂

@Dutchbee:  I feel you.

When we first got engaged, we were looking at spending around £6k/$9k, and having our reception at a local pub, not having a fancy photographer, doing loads of DIY, getting a dress from the high street, etc.

Somehow, that has spiralled to £24k/$36k (ahem) and now involves canapes, a 3 course sit-down meal, a plush venue, a top photographer, a string quartet as well as a band and DJ, designer outfits… Etc.

For us it wasn’t about convenience or price though: my parents offered to pay, very generously, and after some major discussions we decided to go for it as we wanted one big, special day; we don’t want children, so this really will be the biggest/most special day of our lives, and we wanted it to be as damn near perfect as possible.

I think that ultimately though you should go with what you want, and what’s right for YOU; I often wish we had a huge garden and could have had a reception at home, but, it wasn’t going to happen 🙁

@Dutchbee:  Personally I would love food from a food truck….it’s a little something different and so much tastier than standard wedding food. I’m having plastic cups at my wedding. We could have spent a lot more money but my priorities were great food, yummy drinks and fun. All that other stuff no one remembers.
