I really think the only “must have” is a marriage license! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Pictures were probably the most important thing for me.  

And then food/booze for the guests.

Food, pretty dress, personalized vows and flowers are important to me. Everything else is up for negotiation except for the things I straight up don’t want. And my SO. He’s kind of a big deal.

Honestly I could have eloped. Like actually eloped, not the everybody knows/small wedding elopement that seems to be common on WB. lol But D H wanted family there and compromise is required in love.

The must haves for me were good food and good music. We had a DJ but made up a list of songs for him. Restaurant menu was customized to our liking. Professional photographer wasn’t absolutely necessary but dad offered to pay for one. Skipped nearly every tradition and don’t regret it.

A good photographer 

Excellent food

Open Bar

Good music

That’s pretty much all we focused on for our wedding. Loved every second of it, got compliments from our guests for over a year afterward, and have awesome pictures to remember the awesome time we had.

Enough dessert! I went to a wedding a few years ago that had 300 guests, and the cakes ran out around 250.

Photographer. That’s it. 

We had a small ceremony with some more people at a simple reception and it was perfect. 

We didn’t have a bridesmaids or groomsmen, no dancing (we did have music) no save the dates, no engagement announcement. No flower girl. I don’t regret not having these things either. Too much planning and stress โ˜บ๏ธ

For me the must haves are at a minimum to have our parents and siblings there and closest friends at a minimum, and to get nice photos. 

I’m assuming you’re not talking the very basics that must occur for it to be a wedding (vows, marriage license and the couple, officiant and witnesses) lol
