    We had a Sunday afternoon canapé reception. The amount of people who assumed that we were being cheap was astounding (and mainly family, either on my or DH’s side). We ignored it for the most part unless we were directly questioned about it where we simply responded that it was our decision and we wanted it that way. It sucks, and I feel for you. Try to let it roll off your back – people who think that generally aren’t worth your time in the end. *hugs*

    We are having a bbq themed laid back wedding/reception. And everything everyone comments on I just simply smile and say ohhh well when you get married I’ll look forward to seeing you do that at your wedding or if they are already married I say darn I wish I could have gone to your wedding to see how you had your dream wedding.

    I really don’t care what people think about how we are spending our money. My Fiance and I are paying for everything ourselves and I will do anything I can to save us money. Our wedding is on a Thursday, we are having it in the afternoon, and I am doing a ton of DIY. We are proud of how much money we are saving, so if someone doesn’t like it, too bad for them. We aren’t going cheap, but we also aren’t going over the top. If people don’t like it, they don’t have to come. We will enjoy those people that truly want to share in our special day.

    We got a boatload of assumptions about ours.  Of course it hurt my feelings but over time I ignored them.

    Let them assume all they want!  Pretty soon they will figure out themselves that weddings aren’t cheap, no matter when or where you do them.
