    I’m planning on having a semi-low-key wedding.  I’m still going to be a princess no matter what!

    I had a elegant, beautiful elopement… 

    I’m not sure elopement = laid back.

    I vote ‘cocktail fancy’… meaning fancy enough to get dolled up but not so fancy that I can’t be comfortable letting my hair down a bit 🙂

    There won’t be any sit-down dinner for us, but I wouldn’t exactly call it laid-back, either. It’s hard to call something low-key when there are going to be 250+ people there, lol. This is really customary in our area, but there will be a buffet of delicious Italian food, a cookie table, and LOTS of dancing! It will probably be in a banquet hall that’s been pretty decked out and formal-looking, but without the stuffy atmosphere of a traditional “formal” wedding, if that makes sense.

    I prefer laid back weddings. To me they’re more enjoyable and pleasant.

    I love fancy looking but it has to be FUN and a little wild

    I said best of both worlds… Mine is kind of semi-formal to formal. I’m getting married outdoors with a tented reception, fancy dinner and open bar, cocktail hour, long flowy gown and men in suits. I would say the actual event will be laid back though. Dinner, dancing, and laughs (hopefully).. basically I’m going to make it look fancy but people can act however they choose– all of my family occasions are pretty open to doing what you feel like and I think my wedding will be the same.

    Mine will be all sorts of laid back… that is who we are. In no way are either of us fancy. However I will be wearing a ballgown/a-line dress and Fiance will be wearing his dress blues that is as fancy as we are getting LOL.

    We originally planned on having something very laid back, but its turning into something else entirely. Not glamorous exactly, but traditional and kind of elegant. My fiance suprised me by feeling very strongly about having a string quartet for the ceremony… which throws off the entire vibe.

    Our wedding was “fancy” in the sense that people dressed up for it, and we had formal decorations.  However, it was laid-back in the sense that we were so thrilled to be able to get married after 9 years together that neither we nor our friends stressed over the details.

    We’re having a black tie wedding with a fancy church ceremony and the reception at an upscale hotel ballroom. When else do you get to have all your nearest and dearest (and the randos your parents just HAD to have on the gueslist) get all dressed up?

    I said best of both worlds. We will be having a black tie wedding with a sit down plated meal (not 4 courses though), but the focus will be on fun. We love to dance and party and are really laid back people so that how we want our day to be.  We want elegant but not stuffy. I think you can do both if you just pick the elements that you like.
