birefringence :  Thanks I’m glad it was useful to you. We got super lucky with the venue, we booked it, because it was the only resort in the country, but it turned out to be beautiful. Yes there were a lot of coconut crabs scuttering around at night!

I dreamed last night that I met a couple who regretted their wedding, I told them wedding regret is normal you have to decide to just embrace your decision. 

There are so many ways to get married, the most important thing is to marry the right person, how you get married doesn’t really matter.

I don’t love a bunch of my wedding photos, but I know when me and the hubby look at them when we are old and wrinkly we will have fond memories, so I’m not fixating on not liking most of my photos. I also didn’t love my dress, because I had it custom made in 10 days and didn’t turn out how I imagined and I had no time for adjustments, but now it sits in the wardrobe waiting to sell on eBay, so I’m over that too.

I get to see my husband everyday though and he is awesome! The husband is the most important part. And the ring, you wear that everyday.

Good luck with with your decision, being married is awesome!

birefringence :  I love you unique wedding ideas! I wish I had a friend like you πŸ™‚ I also spend a lot of time planning the unique weddings and details but then I realize for me I’d be soon worried about a million things that I much right elope. I will add personal touches to our elopement announcement and we will still have cake, a nice dress and beautiful pictures. I think I will wait until after elopement to decide if we want a celebration πŸ™‚ My wedding day feels to special for me to have to be stresses out and he’s kinds exciting that we get to do everything our way,  our timeline, first ones to see pictures πŸ™‚ I do love that people can still come by and celebrate with us in individual groups if they wanted. Much more fun, and more time for meaningful conversation. πŸ™‚
