Have you talked to your Fiance about these thoughts? He may be able to help you decide one way or another. I don’t know what the right answer for you is, but my advice would be to have a think about what kind of wedding you and your Fiance truly want. Even if you do decide to have a simple registry, that doesnt mean you can’t have a beautiful dress and pictures that show your future children just how happy and in love you were.

You can still have beautiful pictures regardless of what you decide.

I feel you. I was lucky enough to have my mom around til about 3 years ago. I wont lie, it’s hard and the fact that she is gone pops up a LOT in the wedding planning process, moreso than any other time, and also that I dont really have a lot of best friends or anything. I would say if you can count on someone to help you, whether it’s your husband (lol) or a friend, you’re going to need someone to help w/the planning process and bounce ideas off of. I use the forum here a lot, none of my friends are really close enough other than just random questions I bounce off of them, my daughter is 17 and she is ok, and the fiance has some input, but really, it’s mostly me making the decisions or explaining to someone else why this decision even matters-so it’s kind of a lot.

we were also married (by our bank) so we could share benefits at work about a year and a half ago, we already call each other husband and wife, but this is just the fomality of it all and it’s actually turning out to be fun. we contemplated eloping with a small celebation w/just a few folks and close family but we got an earful from other friends and family and decided we should do a real wedding.

It is good to take time with a decision and make sure you are doing what YOU want to do, both of you, because it can be hard, stressful and adds up quick. Whatever you decide to do can be fun and meaningful to both of you (just get creative).

good luck!
