Just don’t tell the owners of the house that you are renting it for a wedding. Prices are sure to go uo and some will refuse to rent to you as they think it will be a wild party, too many people and possible damage.

lol, I keep threatening to just elope.  but then I remember I have that danged gown and it’ll be the only time I’ll be able to wear it. 

very awesome that you’re doing what you want instead of giving in to the pressure of having something you DO NOT want!!!!

It was always my dream to have a small intimate wedding. That didn’t happen for us. But I’m hoping to have a small intimate vow renewal some day!!!!

We just decided on the same thing.  It seemed to be getting too much with money and stress so we’re moving our 80 guest wedding in South Caroilna to Rhode Island with only immediate family and our bridal party.  I’ve found it’s a big relief.

Good for you for going after what you want. πŸ™‚ Congratulations!

P.S. I am doing mine at a vacation rental as well, though I am having another 25 people come in just for the day, for a total guest list of 50. They are charging me extra for the 25 guests and for bringing in vendors. If you are DIY the property shouldn’t be charging you extra for holding a wedding in it.

congrats! I was worried this was going to be a sad thread, but anytime you get the wedding you want, it’s always good πŸ™‚ My fiance and I live in coastal NC, too (southern NC though) about an hour north of the SC border, and we are doing the EXACT same thing. We’re getting a house with a pier and getting married on the pier, then having everyone hang out at the house with us afterward. Wouldn’t have it any other way… hope your day is everything you want it to be!

I totally applaud you for this!  I wish I had stood my ground on this same issue months ago!  I’m excited to get married, but am concerned that a good portion of the guests are FI’s mom’s friends and I won’t know people at my own wedding!  say la vie right?

Congrats – sometimes the best thing to do is keep it simple πŸ™‚ Also well done for keeping control of your day, I learned to my cost that letting people pay for things often means you don’t get a say…

Good luck πŸ™‚
