We had a “mini” wedding nearly 3 years ago, and we have zero regrets!

I wore a formal dress, DH in a suit, we had a pro photographer, flowers (which my mother forced me to have.. Def could have done without) a cake, a beautiful sit down dinner with menu items we certainly couldn’t have afforded for 300, but splurged for 30, and paid for all of it with cash. It was a debt free day! 

My Maid/Matron of Honor, SIL, and mother decorated the rented dining room of a restaurant early in the day, got our hair and nails done, I met up with DH and had photos taken and the we exchanged our private vows. We met up with our immediate families, grand parents, and godparents at city hall. We sealed the deal, went and had a celebratory cocktail at the bar DH and I had our first date at, then went to the restaurant and had a very delicious dinner. Everything was done before 10pm, and we were able to go out that night to see a friend’s band play and meet up with some other good friends. PERFECT wedding ❤️❤️

I wanted a small wedding like this, just immediate family. We had a beautiful wedding but I still wish we could have done this. Less stress, less money.

eileenelly :  I think this sounds completely lovely. I just wonder if the part you’ll regret is not having your family with you?

eileenelly :  I read your post wrong and thought they couldn’t make it for some reason. Sounds like the most important people will be there and you will be having the wedding that you want. I would go for it!
