I’l telling people not to bother with presents, but to spend that money on a hotel room or something nice for themselves because we don’t need anything.

It’s not true.

We have mismatched plates from college, fraying towels, scratched up cheapie silverware, sheets from the college section of Target, and pillows we bought because they were on sale several years ago at TJ Max.

We actually do want presents. We just know that since most people are having to travel and possibly spend the night, it will be expensive already, and if you throw a decent present into the mix, a lot might not come. And given the choice between having those I love around me and lots of presents, I’d rather have the special day with my loved ones, so we are sacrificing new stuff to make sure that happens. But I am a little sad when I hear about a bee’s nice china or so-and-so’s Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, since I’ve wanted one of those for the better part of ten years.

@BeeG35:  +1.  My job funded a lot of my wedding planning :/

Also, I totally gave up caring what people thought about the wedding as soon as I put my dress on.  We’re out of white wine?  Fuck em.  Those people at the end of the tent have to wait 20 minutes to get to the buffet?  Fuck em.  LOL!  Everyone had a blast and tells us “best wedding ever!” so obviously we did a lot right – but I totally didn’t care about the few details that went awry.

@EffieTrinket:  + 1. We do hope to get extra money gifts to help us start in life. We are both students, we’ll end up with debts and still, we want what every other couple wants : own a house after we’re done with college. We already can’t afford to pay for everyone … we can’t afford a honeymoon at all … we do not want to make money over our wedding or be tacky or cheap, but help us there ! Of course I would prefer having everybody and 0 gift, but we can’t even afford ”everybody”, we had to cut cousins off, etc. So yes, send us money. Give us money. Help us, it’s the only time we’ll ”ask”, since we won’t have kids. *That’s only what’s on my mind, I would never, ever admit such a thing to anyone !* So yeah, totally a guilt admission there. 🙂

There are about 10 people who were ONLY invited because they happen to live in my Destination Wedding locale and I would not be the least bit disappointed if not one of them could make it. I would spread out the 1500 US dollars I’ll save feeding them and roll around in it.

I made sure to get a great photographer and lots of pictures because I knew I was going to be “over” the wedding when It came. I had a great time but I was so stressed and tired, I just wanted to enjoy the day without trying to remember all these little details about it. So thankfully, the photos fill in all the gaps for me 🙂

@EffieTrinket:  Sunrise Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof. Even Fiance hates it. It is soooo sad and melancholy and creepy sounding. It’s like very darkly beautiful, but inappropriate IMO. I told him veto and they had to pick a new one by Sunday when I turn in the music list. She seems adamant about it though, and I’m so annoyed. -_-

My dad and I are dancing to You Are My Sunshine from the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack, which is very sweet and upbeat, and it has a lot of meaning for my dad and my sister and I. I would hate for it to be followed by something so Dickensian.

I just want it to be over so I can get family and friends who think they know what I want more than I do off my back and I can just enjoy my hunny.

I’m so glad I didn’t go through with a big wedding. I would hate to spend the day with family I hate, kids I can’t stand and people I don’t know. I think even 11 people was too many.

@shesho:  Heh.. +1

I’m so glad Fi and I aren’t putting on a show for people we rarely see.  I was happy to have my shower and celebrate with my girls who were thrilled for us, that part was awesome, but to throw in the family dynamics of an actual wedding?  No thanks.
