- Wedding: November 1999
My partner and I are discussing what is important to us on our big day and what we want to prioritise. So far we have this
1) Small. 50 guests maximum and all of them people who are in our lives. We both know A LOT of people as acquaintances but want our wedding to be close friends and family only. I think weddings are very personal and initimate and I dont want to share it was loads of people. We’d like it small.
2) I have family far away who dont have a lot of money and I’d like to pay for them to come down, so travel, hotels etc, so they can spend the day with us without worrying about costs. These are my immiediate aunties and uncles.
3) My dress and her suit not to be too formal. We would like to be comfortable and be able to enjoy our day. This is a big one for us. I don’t want a big wedding, big dress or a big ring. Nothing against those who do, but it’s not us. We’re both very casual people. I’d like us both to look chic and to feel beautiful, but I want to feel like me at the same time and not worry about heels and corsets.
4) Really good food. We’d love to have two menues to choose from, one representing my favourite three course dinner and one representing hers. Guests could mix and match from the two menus. My all time favourite dinner is sirloin steak with chips and peppercorn sauce. 😛 For dessert I LOVE pavlova. I’m not sure about a starter yet..
What were your priorities at your wedding and how did you convey them?
