The only wedding i’ve EVER remembered as being horrible was my aunt’s wedding – and it was mainly because the food was awful – it was family style and there wasn’t enough to go around. They had 10 people seated at an 8 person table, and never upped the food to accommodate for the extra people.
MANY guests left hungry.. and early, to go to mcdonald’s.
As long as your guests are fed and happy, you shouldn’t have a thing to worry about.

if there is someone who you believe would have the gall to made a snarky or rude comment to you on your wedding day.. Do not invite them!!! I wouldn’t want a person in my life like that anyway.. My SO’s cousin had a VERY cheap wedding, but everyone was so happy for her, because she was happy

Yes, I have the same worries as you but we are not doing DIY. My Fiance talks me down from these thoughts though. Try not to think like that.

“all good homecooked comfort food” you say? I’d be too busy stuffing my face to speak poorly of your wedding if I was a guest. Even after that, if I was going to say anything, I’d probably be speaking very highly of your food.

@marinewife4: as long as there is a wedding, something to eat, something to drink, and YOU LOOK HAPPY, everyone who cares about you will be happy. I would just embrace it. My sister had a budget wedding and I had a more expensive one. People loved BOTH weddings bc we both looked happy and everyone was excited to see us get married!

- Wedding: September 2014 - Hired hall
We are also having a church wedding, parish hall reception with lots of DIY (we’re not even having a DJ, just plugging our iPod into the sound system lol). And providing lots of food and drink, but no fancy sit-down-dinner, just a buffet. Ultimately, the wedding is about celebrating your unity, not your guests. So long as you enjoy yourself and have a good time, I wouldn’t worry about what anybody else says 🙂 my cousins had very lavish weddings that mine just won’t live up to, but so long and everybody is joyful and has fun, then it doesn’t really matter 🙂
