Why arent you having a wedding? You could have a reception or a party after getting married to celebrate your marriage with your family, and have the song as your first dance.

You dont have to spend 25k on a wedding. There are many alternatives. 

There are many restaurants that have small private rooms where you can invite 10 people and spend 1,000 dollars on food or WAY less. And get a 300 dollar dress or less and then you can have your very own wedding dance song 😛 

A wedding is what you make it to be, it doesnt have to be what everyone else thinks it should be.

You only get married once. 🙂 So make good memories of it.

I completely agree, we spent more on our honeymoon than we did on our wedding, and we had a 5-hour venue location.  One of the best moments on your wedding day, is dancing with you husband in your wedding dress as you both glow of happiness. I would look into restaurants or a day wedding as they’re always less expensive, but if can have a full wedding day. My first dance is my #1 memory right now, i’m sure once I have kids it’ll get bumped down, but its pretty amazing.

@MsHeatFan:  I had that – a beach wedding in Hawaii with only parents+siblings and one friend each. My entire wedding, including our airfare + hotel + reception dinner, not including honeymoon, was about $6k. What’s this $25k you speak of? lol

@MsHeatFan: Your eloping sounds lovely!  What song did you fall in love with?  You should dance to it at the bbq 🙂

@MsHeatFan:  I can’t edit my post anymore, but I meant to correct that the $6k+ included the honeymoon, rings, dress, DH’s wedding shirt, my slippers, everything!

We are getting married on Thursday at a friends house.  Very small (12 people including us) and I am still planning background music for the “downtime”  If you want to play your song DO IT.  After you finish saying your vows have everyone take a few moments to enjoy and share in your happiness.
