We had several things.
1) Getting married and having the reception in the same place
2) having food that is US (i.e. not fancy wedding food! we’re having an asian and mexican buffet… can’t wait!!)
3) shunning any tradition that isn’t us. Our invites are informal, our ceremony music is our favorite modern songs, there will be no garter toss or boquet toss.

my husband, everything else changed at least once(and i mean everything, my dress, the date, chairs, photog, colors, bridal party, guest list).. so the only thing i wasn’t willing to negotiate was who i was marrying.. lol

Food, ceremony (non-religious) and location.

Having food that’s at least semi-expressive of us and our backgrounds (he’s from the South, I love anything local and seasonal). A good photographer that fits into our budget. So many people have suggested their roommate’s former boyfriend’s cousins… which would be fine if that person were a professional with a good portfolio, but not someone with a digital camera who likes photography.

I always pictured an outdoor ceremony so we have a backup of a tent in case of rain. I want it outside! We both want a variety of music so a DJ was necessary –
Other than that, we have been open to suggestions

This is a fun one 🙂
Before we even got engaged, Mr. O and I agreed that we would not be wearing shoes and it would be a secular ceremony. Quickly after we got engaged, no veil and being on a beach got added.
