Congratuations! You look lovely! It’s wonderful that you planned an event with a budget that made you comfortable. I love seeing everyone’s creative ways to stay within their budgets. πŸ™‚

I hope I have misinterpreted your attitude towards those who decided to walk a different path when it comes to guest list size and budget. We are happy to host our friends and family at our wedding and have enjoyed the planning process, too!

I love that you loved your wedding, and it looks like it was gorgeous! Just remember that everyone has different reasons for wanting a wedding and reception :). 

For me, the year I spent planning my wedding with my mom was kind of a way for us to let go since I had lived at home almost my whole life and I went to college just 30 minutes away. I’m glad you had your dream wedding!

@mink: I did not interpret any type of negative attitude towards others in her post.

Good for you for doing it the way you wanted to; it looks beautiful.

You look so HAPPY. πŸ™‚ And that’s what matters most of all.

I am definitely stressing about all the expenses too, I originally only thought we would spend 3,000 but now it seems that will only cover the dress (which I already purchased) and venue. I love the church you got married in and it’s so great that it’s where your parents got married too. I just wish I could figure out how I’m going to have the day I want and afford it.

@mink: I understand what you were saying because when I read the line “All so they can compliment us, give us a toaster and go home”, I realized that the OP and I must have some different ideas about weddings and guests.

However, OP, you looked absolutely gorgeous and I’m so glad you were able to have the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank!  Your day looked lovely, congratulations. πŸ™‚

Aw, I love this! I love your dress! What a steal too. I kind of wanted a nice, low key cotton dress like that. But the dress I wore was one my husband had his eye on for a while, so I got it for him. You are very beautiful, and you and your husband make a very handsome couple!!

Congratulations πŸ™‚
