A surprise wedding =]

I love the crazy ruffle dresses but they weren’t in style when i was dress shopping. I missed the trend by like 6 months. Bummers. Makes me wish I got married in 2010 instead of 2009 a little bit!

A honeymoon registry – where people can gift you things to do on the honeymoon (dinner, snorkeling adventure, etc.) or part of your hotel or airfare. I didn’t think our families would go for it!

Wearing a birdcage veil. I know it’s a small thing relative to weddings, but I love the look! I just can’t seem to bring myself to wear one.

The short wedding dress, love the look of it, but ultimately I want something more traditional.

A destination wedding! I would have loved to go to Mauritius to get married but FH really wanted to be married here, in the city that he was born and raised in. But getting married on a beach still haunts my dreams.

The short wedding dress.  I even tried one on!  But I knew my mom would have a coniption fit if that’s what I chose.  I also really like candy bars, but had never seen/heard of one until I was planning, and by then it was kinda too late, we already had other stuff we were set on (i.e. ice sculpture).  I really wanted mismatched bridesmaids dresses too, but my husband didn’t like that idea.

ok, this is one thing I really, really REALLY wanted to do at our wedding. I wanted to have the wedding party and my husband and I do THIS dance. from Pride and Prejudice. I even printed out the dance steps to learn them. My husband was all for it and so were my bridesmaids, but he worried that 1)some of the guys wouldnt do it(probably true) and 2) we didnt have enough time to practice with so many of them from out of town. Sigh. so… we didnt do it.

 

SOMEONE should do it though!!

Mine isn’t necessarily that I am not daring enough, but just that it’s not as “us” as the wedding I am planning . . . It would be my fantasy second wedding.  It would have a kind of gothic victorian Alice in Wonderland theme.  Think Ashlee Simpson’s wedding but even more over the top!

Eloping. And by eloping I mean calling in a personal day at work, jumping on a plane, getting hammered, and having an Elvis wedding in Vegas. I honestly wanted to, but we found that our families are really looking forward to a wedding to attend. I’m enjoying the planning and building this great love day, but a part of me just wants to rebel with my middle finger in the air as I jetset away.

My fiance’s family is fairly traditional and will be horrified enough that we aren’t holding our ceremony in their family church. While we both emphatically support gay marriage and I really wanted to put something flagrantly obvious in our ceremony regarding this issue, I’m going with more subtle concepts instead, i.e. making no reference to gender in the ceremony text and having the Goodridge v Massachusetts Dept of Public Health text printed, in full, on the last page of our programs. It kind of feels like I’m wussing out, but I’ve come to accept that making his relatives feel uncomfortable isn’t going to allow my friends Tim and Doug to get married any sooner.

(And quite honestly, while I’ve never asked them point-blank, I’m fairly certain that they all support gay marriage. But they’d find it too untraditional to include that sentiment in the ceremony itself.)
