  • Wedding: August 2013

We originally were planning the traditional wedding. It wasn’t what I wanted, and was costing us wayyyyyy more than we budgeted for, so we cancelled the wedding and having a fresh start on the wedding plans. I seem to be getting some mixed reactions from people about my wedding since alot of people I know are hung up on traditions. Were doing the following:

  • Morning Ceremony, around 10am
  • Luncheon Reception
  • Cash Bar, but we are supplying wine and mimosas
  • No rehearsal dinner
  • Wedding 1-2 hour drive for most guests
  • Very intimate, 50 guests invited
  • No limos
  • No tosses – garter or flowers
  • No DJ, just background music during lunch
  • Adults only, no children
  • Vintage High Tea Theme – serving a formal three course luncheon however
  • Cupcakes for all, no cake to cut
  • Date still to be determined, but we’re thinking about a Sunday wedding

After reading a lot of these comments I am feeling a lot less off-beat! Here are some things that others (obviously not you ladies lol) might consider strange:


-Friday morning private mountain top ceremony – no guests

-Friday evening reception – only closest family and friends. If you’re related but I haven’t spoken to you in 10 years, tough cookies!

-No registry except for a ‘wanderable’ honeymoon registry. I get so much flak for this!

-No band or DJ, will have a variety of iPod playlists ready and will pick which to play depending on how the atmosphere during the reception is.

-No rehearsal dinner

-Non-traditional bridal shower. Having a ‘ladies afternoon tea’ instead that is planned, hosted and paid for by me. There will be no gifts, just a nice day with the closest ladies in my life!

-No bridesmaids or groomsmen

-No bachelorette, just a sleepover with my girls the night before the wedding

-Partial cash bar. Free champagne for toast, 3 pours of wine during dinner, and 2 drink tickets and the rest is up to them

-Only having our photog for the beginning of the reception since she’s starting so early in the morning – a DSLR will be placed on every table for guests to have fun with and take photos of themselves and us

-No traditions like father-daughter dance or bouquet or garter toss

I think that’s mostly it.. I can’t wait!
