Went to see a fabulous lady about a cake today found out how much a fairly basic cake for 60 guests would cost and decided we are not going to bother with one at all.  We are serving a very smart 3 course meal followed by tea and truffles so people are not going to go hungry!

Warhol_Girl89:  I also don’t care about the cake.  We have 2 dessert selections included with our buffet and I’ve never really been a big cake lover anyways.  We’re just getting a 12 inch round cake to display and a sheet cake that will be kept in the kitchen until it’s time to serve it.  Our plan is to cut the cake around 9:30 as a little pick me up.  As well, our ceremony is on the lawn of the yacht club but we won’t be getting married under any kind of archway or arbor.  I don’t think guests need help figuring out what or who they should be watching and our backdrop is the pacific ocean and Mt. Baker.  My mom was pretty adamant that we should rent one but I finally convinced her that it’s an unnecessary detail to us and she’s let it go.

I’m sure this will seem like blasphemy to some brides lol, but I do not care about flowers other than my bouquet, the bouquets for my girls, and the flowers for the church. I refuse to get flowers for my centerpieces because they cost about $150-200 apiece where I live, and they get thrown out at the end of the night.

Cake. I’m just not really a cake person. Or that big of a dessert person. The SO is though. But I could not care less about it.

Flowers. I’m just not really into them. They are nice and all, but they die and I just think it’s a huge waste of money.

Probably a lot of small little details that a lot of people freak out about.

I DO care about good food (especially that I can eat), the music, and the photography.

The ceremony wording. I find it tough sifting through all the slight variations and stuff!

Oh man, where do I start?! Ha! No bouquet toss, garter, DJ, dancing, first dance…I could go on and on. Right now we are having issues with the photog and I could care less. Too tired to care. We’re 20 days away from it right now and I just want to ignore the bad stuff ha!

I am sure there will be more things I don’t care about, but so far flowers and favors are the two that spring to mind. I wanted flowers in general, but I really don’t care what they look like as long as they are the right colors and inexpensive. My florist won because she was the most inexpensive, and when she said she could lower the price by adding more filler, I think she was shocked at how quickly I said “Ok, done!” All the pictures she showed me for the $50 centerpieces honestly looked just fine to me when compared to the $150 centerpieces. I do care about my bouquet, but that’s about it. 

I also don’t care about favors. I don’t see the point as I have just thrown away or given away favors I’ve gotten from other weddings. I am still undecided on whether or not we will do a traditional favor; I am leaning towards a candy bar or photo booth instead. 

I’m sure once we go deeper I will find other things I don’t care about. I wish I could choose to care about those things just a little more in exchange for not caring about other elements as much as I do; it would save me some stress to have everything be more middle of the road!

Warhol_Girl89:  Most of it, really – we’re going to Las Vegas and getting married by an Elvis impersonator! No guests; it’ll be just the two of us.

Like you, I never really cared about the cake (my partner and I aren’t desert people). I don’t care about any other traditons, either – even if we had a “real” wedding, we wouldn’t have a bridal party. I’m wearing a red vintage evening gown I tailored myself, and I won’t have a bouquet. So, basically, the only thing we care about is getting married.

For some reason, I’m also not obsessing about the cake as much as I thought I would. It’s not that I don’t care, I love cake, I want a traditional looking cake that’s white with tiers and I want flavors that everyone is going love. But for some reason, when it comes to the design, I’m not nearly as nit-picky as I am with everything else. I definitely obsessed over the cake topper, but I think I feel like that’s more important than the actual cake, so long as it’s pretty and they compliment each other. Maybe I’ll get more into it once it gets closer.

 

What I REALLY don’t care that much about? Food. I know, it’s terrible, but so long as there’s food for everyone, it’s filling and I like the way it tastes, I don’t really care what it actually is. I care more about how it’s presented than what’s on the plate. I know food is a biggie for a lot of people, but I just…don’t care.

Warhol_Girl89:  I’d have to say that the cake is one for me too.. I’m not sure about my FI’s feelings on this because I don’t care haha more than likely I’ll end up renting a fake cake with a spot that’s ‘spongy’ for the cake cutting pictures but other than that I don’t care.

I don’t really care about the ceremony either, meaning that I’m not religious at all… Fiance is from a Catholic family so more than likely I’ll be taking part in that ceremony for him and his family but as long as we sign the marriage license, that’s all I care about.

Flowers too… probably going to see about getting fake ones done up depending on how expensive… if they’re more expensive than real flowers then I’ll go with whatever is cheaper.

Aside from weddingbee boards, pretty dresses, and cake, I’m really not that into the materialistic aspects of weddings. We won’t be doing any kind of unity candle or whatever. We’re not having a bridal party. We don’t need to go overboard on decorations. We’re going to save our money for more important things in our future.

We did not spend a single second thinking about flowers for our wedding.  Our ceremony was outside in a rose garden so we figured we’d let nature take care of the decorations :).

Then the week of the wedding, we were in town and friend offered to put together some flowers for our natural arch.  We had no expectations and only agreed because we thought she was really into it.  And she was…she was a wreck the day of putting together this floral arch…a labor of love I suppose.  We loved it.  We were so grateful and paid her what we would have paid a vendor since the level of work was so involved. 

Also, the week of, we had extra in the budget so we paid for some flowers for the tables and truly they were show stoppingly gorgeous.  Really glad, we spluged 🙂
