What a great thread! Agree 100% with you OP, the best things about weddings are the things that can’t be bought:)

@cloverbug:  so very true.  i always say that for a wedding you need the bride, the groom and the minister.  with those 3 individuals, you meet your whole objective of the day…to get married.  everything else is gravy.

I couldn’t agree more! we’re not bothering with centrepieces, apart from a few votives here and there and we arn’t decking the place with flowers. My dress was fairly cheap too. We are concentrating on giving our guests a good time, with lots of good food and wine 🙂 I can’t wait to marry my love X

I agree!! 🙂 

 

Although that doesn’t stop me from doing my little decorative DIY projects. I love small beautiful details, but I know my wedding will be nice even without them! So no pressure if I decide to scrap something.

You are 100 percent right. And if anything doesn’t go exactly to plan (and something definitely won’t), just go with it as you will be the only one who notices 🙂

Thanks for this post.

The best moment of the last wedding I went to was right before the Bride came out, we were sitting in the second row, watching the Groom be all nervous and right before she came out he got a stick of Chapstick from his pocket and put it on. We all cracked up.

Really good hearing from a guest’s perspective. Now that I think about it, the few wedding I’ve been to….I think I only remember there being candles (and I didn’t attend the bar so that’s not why I don’t remember, haha!).

Ok, I see what you’re saying…and I’m probably a little biased because I’m a photographer, but I think the little details do matter. 

Especially when you get ALL your photos back, and they are shared with everyone and you re-live the day over and over! 

But maybe that’s just me Smile

@MissGemini:  This makes sense too, and being a photog myself the details can be important so you have more things to photograph! So I guess it’s more noticeable for the couple and photographer moreso than the guests.
