- Wedding: September 2017 - Poppy Ridge Golf Course
Not on the list but also skipping uniform bridal party. First it was black and a certain length then I thought about it so now each is free to wear whatever she chooses. Color, length, style – some may stick with black but it doesn’t matter just happy to have them there. FI looked at me like I was bonkers then I’m like hear me out. Can you think of any other occasion where its normal to tell grown adults what to wear and have them match one another simply for your preference? He totally gets it now.

We’re getting married next month and most of it will not be traditional. Starting with the fact that my FI as I decided to get married on a Wednesday and are having a reception 3 days later that Saturday. He is taking my last name and there will be no BMs, GM, flower girl, etc. Also no bouquet tossing or garter at the reception. We are so not into all that. FI doesn’t want to do a first dance but he said if I want to we can. I just haven’t decided on it yet. Being in the spotlight gives me anxiety even though it’s all people I know and love.

My wedding is this coming October, but we will be skipping the garter toss, bouquet toss, flower girl/ring bearer, and separating guests on “bride” and “groom” sides of the room. Additionally, we are having a very small bridal party (just 2 girls & 2 guys) and are having a child-free reception. I can’t wait…all of these choices just feel more “us” 🙂
