I think the whole burlap/mason jar thing is just a fad anyhow.

I think all women are doing what they want no matter what the ‘fad’ is, it’s done because they like it! Loving what you’re doing is what it’s all about.

Not everyone has the time or craftiness to DIY the whole wedding. It’s nice to just let the professionals do what they do best! I blame Pinterest for my overloaded craft time.

@Glasgowbound:  Ye I agree with you that I have not followed much of the “norms” that I learned about on the Bee.

That said, I really like how everythign is going so far and do not want to change anything, so C’est la vie. On the plus side, we don’t have to fret about if our choices were the right ones since we aren’t worrying about them 🙂

I want to do mason jars because it would be easy/cheap, seeing as both my family and FI’s family has well over a hundred of them collectively.

But I don’t like being too trendy… Hm.

OMG… we just worked on my one and ONLY DIY project this weekend, assembling favors, and it took 8 hours and I wanted to throw the hot glue gun out the window. I would rather pay a professional to do it, I do not have the patience and I have way too many things to do with my time than sit around assembling stuff that nobody will appreciate or care about other than me anyway!! lol

We didnt have a bridal party, we didnt have a theme, we had a wedding color to honor my Aunt who passed from cancer, I made ourcard box mostly because I’m cheap. I never once had dress regret.  We had 11 guests and took them all out to dinner. No dancing. We were home by 9pm. I didnt excatly what I wanted and it was a perfect streesfree day and I wouldnt change a thing.

I’m guilty as well. I did have some dress regret, but I got over that.

Other than that, the theme is “we’re getting married.” The colors are “here are a bunch of colors I like.”

@Glasgowbound:  Same, although I am DIY-ing the centre pieces and bouquets. I really don’t like the whole mason jar thing. And my BM’s all knew they were going to be my BMs before I even got engaged.

I think the best thing about this site is that everyone is different.No two weddings are the same.Do what makes you happy.

just like you, I did what I wanted, skipped a lot of the frills, nonsense and silly traditions and our wedding was perfect!!!!!!!

my theme:    wedding!!!

colors:  for my honor attendant, my sister, I told her to go out and get a nice dress, and she likes purple so I told her purple.

for the party, the usual linens the restaruant uses:  whitel

no candy bar, no table decorations, no favors, no bouquet/garter silliness, no wedding cake (Bailey’s Ice Cream Pie!!!), no decorating the church(it’s a beautiful church, it needed nothing!).  For the music, we hired a duo that plays regularly at the restaurant.

the wedding was 4 weeks ago.  I’m still hearing how GREAT it was!

Do what you want, and don’t feel intimidated by a lot of the silliness!
