I’m picking something (likely at David’s Bridal on sale,:D) that won’t break  my bank! I love your idea of a backyard reception. If you have a really big yard you’re lucky!! We’ll have to rent a venue

We’re having a Destination Wedding with ten guests. I still just bought the regular ol’ wedding dress that I loved. You only get one shot!

I’m having 12 guest. 

We’re having our ceremony in Hawaii and a fancy dinner there. When we get home we are having a reception in a friend’s backyard with about 50-60 people. I’m wearing my dress then too. The dress was really important to me and I didn’t care if it was a small event.

We we are having a small wedding in an old school house and then a dinner reception At a hotel. It’s not totally fancy but I wanted something nice and somewhat formal which is why I wanted to go smaller so it’s Not as expensive! My dad bought my dress so thankfully I didn’t have to pay for it but was open to spending whatever as to me it’s one of the main pieces of your wedding which you will stare at forever! 

Sample size which doesn’t fit!

We had 45 guests. I bought and wore my dream dress  – a Maggie Sottero. Like BookTea said your wedding is whatever you want it to me. We also had a pretty formal event with upscale dining and a live jazz band.

I bought my dream dress since our downsized wedding plan doesn’t cost as much as a traditional large wedding would. We’re looking at 25-30 people total. 

(In the sample) Wtoo Selena.
