Well he saw my dress – we went shopping together, no programs, I walked down a dock and our friends gathered around – no seating for a 10 minute service and they all had champagne in hand since we opened the bar before the ceremony.

No cake – we don’t like cake but had the most amazing desserts and dinner.

No planned speeches, though some were made, we did do a first dance and father daughter dance but in all we didn’t go according to tradition but we also incorporated our family traditions and our favourite things and really made it the best day ever for us πŸ˜€

Thanks! We did get a lot of raised eyebrows – no cake cutting?! no veil?! lol but it was our day, we paid for it and we know what we like πŸ˜‰

I LOVE the cheesecake ideas! Because I can never decide we did a mini passion fruit creme brulee and a mini lava chocolate cake πŸ™‚

And our guests loved the early open bar!

I think what you’re doing sounds great, although I might leave the signs off the porta johns.

I really like it when people do what’s best for them.  I love that your eldest kids will be saying some words for you both!  That’s touching.  We’re also skipping some of the traditional stuff- Save the Dates, etc. and it’s so less stressful (and less expensive!)

Best of luck to you, I’m sure it will be a beautiful day!
