@bebefly: It wasn’t snark, I was calling you out on your rudeness and insensitivity to those who fully consider their “Civil Ceremony” their wedding. You never said “I” anything. You said “City Hall is not a wedding. City Hall is a piece of paper that says the government acknowledges your relationship and will tax you accordingly. This is a license; it is a registration. It is not a wedding. A wedding is a gathering of family and friends to celebrate the promises made between two people. A civil ceremony is not the same thing!!”

I believe Mrs. Grape is having a family get together the next day or something. Not a whole wedding again, but a “We got married” party. That’s how I took it anyway.

@Belle2Be: How about this instead? If Mrs. Grape has a problem with my “supposed rudeness and insensitivity” in regards to my personal opinion, which, I might add, was expressed in good faith and not meant confrontationally – then Mrs. Grape can either reply to me on this thread or inbox me with her concerns about the issue. how about we let the person you’re so trigger happy to defend decide for herself if she wants to make an issue out of it, mmmkay?

and I am now going to walk away from this thread. Subject closed.

Yikes!  Different strokes for different folks.  It is or isn’t your wedding depending on what YOU think.  If someone thinks it is their wedding, it is!  If not, then not!  It all depends on how each person defines their wedding, and there is not right or wrong.  It does seem silly to say what is/ isn’t a wedding for someone ELSE though.

I agree with RR

@bebefly: You’re assuming that Mrs. Grape is the only person in the world affected by your comment. She’s not. mmmmkay?
