I am so done with sharing my ideas with people… I try to be nice and share when im asked but now im going to keep my big mouth shut….
I Just dont understand what is everyones problem with putting down my wedding(and fi’s)
No i dont think the fact mason jars being my vaces is tacky… OMG it seems like half of the weddings these days are using them… And yes my girls are wearing short dresses (knee length) SO WHAT Im going to have a summer wedding… And BBQ and snow cones? Yes i like BBQ and snow cones why cant i have them at my wedding… Yes the wedding is going to be outside and yes im changing into a short dress (GASP) Yes my colors are based on wildflowers and summer.
And i care more about the ceremony then the reception anyways the reception is just the party afterwards. What really matters is that day i get to marry the man i want to spend the rest of my life with. So can someonee tell me why my family thinks i have to have a super traditional wedding…(IM not traditonal) But i think it is nuts how my family and friends think that just because me and Fi are having a wedding that is us and not the cookie cutter wedding they have been to hundreds of times its bad…. I thought they would be happy they got to see something diffrent…
(End of vent)

Your wedding sounds like it will be so much fun, and relaxing and a great way to celebrate your new marriage. I say do what you want, and be the happy, relaxed bride it sounds like this reception/wedding will allow you to be!

Ignore the haters.
If people ask you wedding detail oriented questions, knowing full well they’re just going to bash your answers and ideas, then just tell them that they’ll just have to wait and see the day of and leave it at that.

I’m sorry people can’t limit themselves to nice things when speaking about your wedding. It’s just not something I understand. Nontraditional does not = tacky.
Side note- I love snow cones. They are my favorite way to defend myself against the summer heat. Is there such a thing as alcoholic snow cones. I’m imagining that tasting good with the right alcohol.

That sounds like an awesome wedding. You should get your nay sayers to check out weddingbee and see all the neat, non-traditional stuff people are doing these days. But at any rate, don’t let them bum you out. Make your wedding so it will be fun for you two, then just enjoy it!

sounds like such a fun wedding! i love the mason jar look! ppl are retarded when it comes to weddings because they only think inside the box and it’s obvious that they haven’t been to a more modern artsy fun wedding. i’ve been collecting these fruit jars from cvs. i only eat them at work, and i have coworkers eating them too. and i tell them to give it to me and they say why and how tacky it is! yet my wedding venue is always on tv, one of the best 5 star cuisine in the world… yet somehow coworkers label collecting jars tacky!
this is what i’m doing with the jars… placing honey in them.

I have been to so many cookie-cutter weddings, they have all been the same , big white dress, bridesmaids in long dresses, sit down meal, ya know all the ususal stuff, but only ONE wedding i went to was different. they had an ice cream cart parked outside, and later at night instead of a buffet, a mobile fish and chip van was hired to park outside and serve fish and chips!
it was wonderful, and of all the weddings i have been to in my life, i can clearly remember this one, and to me, if your wedding is memorable to others in whatever way you make it…..then it was a success.
i hope people remember mine in the way that i remember this wedding……i have yet to think of unique things to add……
maybe a photo-booth would be fun. its not unique to us Bee’s here, but no wedding i have ever been to had on, so it would be quite different for my circle of friends.
Do what makes you happy, and if they are not……they dont have to come…..

@MsPanda: Your wedding sounds so amazing! If people ask just say that you want everyone to be suprised when they see it 🙂
If people are mean just remind them that this is your wedding and you want it to reflect you and your Fiance not them or other peoples idea of what you should do.

@MsPanda: Just tell them you haven’t decided on anything yet. You are still a year away. When you get closer, just tell them that you are not sharing details as you want it to be a suprise. P.S. – your wedding sounds awesome, I love snow cones 😉
