i think it’s a great idea if you are ready to have a small wedding, and it can be verry romantic and emotional 🙂

Honestly? Here goes… “I admire you”.  Have you discussed it with the families are you pretty set on just doing it no matter what.

I love the story and think it is a special and romantic idea!!  I’m getting married July 21, 2011 which is on a Thursday!  “Honey” and I decided on a wedding for 2 on a private island in Jamaica and are both UBER excited about it.  We are having a small send off party on a local beach for our CLOSET family and BEST friends prior to leaving but other than that, our wedding will be something that only the 2 of us will share. 

**DISCLAIMER** The only advice I have is that if a traditional wedding is something you ABSOLUTELY have always dreamt of, you should do it.  You certainly don’t want to look back and wish you had if you don’t.  Honey and I have always wanted something small on the beach, so I’m sure there won’t be any haunting regrets!!! 

Here are my inspiration boards for the send off and wedding…

I think it’s a great idea! Fiance and are are paying for our own wedding. After purchasing our house last year and are finishing up school, money is tight! So instead of a 100 person wedding that was well over 25,000  we have decided to have a small (25 person) destination wedding on a beautiful beach in Santa Barbara with all the bells and whistles, no compromises : ) for a bout $5,000. With all the money we saved we have upgraded our honeymoon to include a suite with a private pool and jacuzzi. ” Downsizing” was the best decision we made!

I wish you all the best!

@Camie: I think it’s very romantic and small weddings can be so memorable!  You actually have time to talk with everyone and be with your love.  And marrying in “your” park is a great idea, that feeling would be indescribable!  It sounds like you both are on the same page, you should follow your heart.

If it’s what you both want, I’d say go for it!  I love the idea of getting married on your dating anniversary, too, especially in the park where you had your first date.  What a romantic, memorable plan!
