I’m also glad I’m not having a bridal party!

Bridesmaids (just having my bff as MOH). Garter toss. A walk down an aisle (I’d trip).

No bridal party here, too!  It’s so nice… for my first wedding, almost all the drama came from bridal party issues.  Missing groomsmen, depressed bridesmaids, etc.  So much less stress!

@Rouquine:  I just don’t see myself enjoying that kind of thing. It’s good for other people. 🙂

Garter/bouquet toss. Usually seems to end in embarrassment.

Toasts! Am terrified of public speaking and will not wish this on anyone else.

A large bridal party, a garter/boquet toss, a banquet-style reception, a religious/short ceremony.

@kerensa:  Oooh. good one. We’re relegating all toasts to the rehearsal dinner, and I’m really afraid I’m expected to do one. I speak in public all the time (in class), but this is different. Eeek. Don’t wanna.

I’m so glad I’m not having a big, formal wedding.

Only 23 guests 🙂

I’m so glad we didn’t do a receiving line. When I’m at friends’ weddings, it is so awkward to have to shake hands and exchange small talk with their parents (who I usually have only met once or twice before!). We went around to each table at the reception – doesn’t hold everyone up, and gives you much longer to chat with the guests who do want to have a conversation!

Dancing. Darling Husband and I don’t like dancing in front of people, and I don’t like the exhibition that is the first dance. People applauding every time the groom spins the bride (omg, it’s a spin. get over it). Then people would’ve spent the whole reception trying to get us to do line dances…ugh. People dragging you onto the dance floor, then *I’m* the bad person when I say no, and sit back down. Just not our thing.
