Sending massive positive vibes to you!!! Your wedding will turn out splendidly!!! An open air wedding, at the beach(!), barbecue so people may actually eat with their hands and laugh aloud..and a married couple πŸ™‚

I’ve been to quite a few weddings where I found out afterwards, were super bare done. And I had no idea! If it’s done properly, and your guests have fun, people are happy.

To save on mine, Fiance and I have cut out:

  • The dance. There’s 40 people coming, I’m pretty sure they can deal with it
  • Champagne Toast. Of the 40, like 6 drink champagne..
  • Unnecessary guests! Immediate family, close friends, that’s it.
  • Rehearsal dinner. So many people are coming from so many places, it just won’t work anyways
  • Doing my own makeup

I’m sure you’ll rock it!!!

I think it will be beautiful and so meaningful. As far as your dress, it might be worthwhile checking department stores, etc too. You might be able to find a great white prom dress on sale at the end of June : )

Good luck, I know it will be beautiful!

For my dress I found a non-tradtional off white dress from Macy’s on Clearance for 34 bucks.  It’s so gorgeous I die each time I see it.  It’s a little bit tea-length I guess with lace around the top.  It’s plus size. 

Finding a non-traditional dress may be an option too?  Good luck!

@automaticflowers:  Can you move to a Court House wedding with just a party at the beach after?  Potluck, boombox, and friends with their own cameras capturing the moment?  I haven’t lost hope πŸ˜‰ 

I’m so sorry you’re going through all this stress.  You deserve a beautiful wedding.  I hope you get there!
