    We don’t have a wedding party, my ceremony is secular and in the same location as the reception, my dress is tea length and my Fiance helped pick it out. Is that non-traditional enough for you?

    @LOGAHN1981: Hah. Actually, I picked answer #3. I guess I don’t feel like my choices are all that groundbreaking because my brother just got married in a secular ceremony at the same location as the reception, with no wedding party. 

    I am doing the traditional sit down dinner, but I think that doing a cocktail reception is a great idea also! I basically want to feed my guests so that they will have enough energy to party on the dance floor to my German polka band (another non-traditional thing) afterward! 

    Edit: I meant to say I picked answer #3. I’ve fixed that now.

    We went to the courthouse to get married instead of having a big wedding, and we had a reception the next day at a local restaurant. No real wedding party. I wore a short green dress. No toasts, no first dance, bouquet toss, garter stuff…basically, the most traditional aspect was that we got married and had a reception at all, haha.

    @LOGAHN1981: Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was SO much easier and less stressful (not to mention way less expensive) than the big wedding we had started out planning.

    @LOGAHN1981: UGH I got the same thing. I lived with my now hubby for 2 years and seriously people the “gig” is up! He calms me and makes me happy. I loved our little stolen moment of the morning of our wedding just the 2 of us. But we were both up and out the door by 8am!

    @Mrs Grape: I used to plan on wearing a green dress to my wedding. It turned out that the one thing my Fiance cares about was me wearing a whitish dress. 

    Your wedding sounds lovely. Congrats!

    We got married in Mexico in a gazebo on the beach. Overall there wasn’t much that was traditional about our wedding except for a white dress, a bride and groom, and vows. lol

    We got married in the middle of a hockey game. My family thought it was crazy, but it was totally us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @rachiecakes: That’s so rad! 

    @Lemma: Thanks! I started out wanting a red dress, but it somehow got switched to green along the way, lol. I tried on some white/ivory gowns, but none of them really did a whole lot for me. Sometimes I think it would have been cool, but I wouldn’t have felt like “myself” in a traditional gown, as weird as that probably sounds.

    I’m definitely not traditional. For example, I’m currently discussing making another wedding dress out of duct tape for the big day. Lol.

    I have a wooden and moissanite ring. I guess that’s fairly nontraditional!
