I was dead set on having a non-secular wedding. Well, we ended up with a rabbi, a chuppah, a wine ceremony, and cutting the challah at the reception. It ended up being way more important for our families that we did do these things, than it was for us that we didn’t. And it all worked out fine!

I have always wanted a church wedding. I had to give that up because the Catholic Church does not perform second marriages (his, not mine).

So far all I have is that I was adamant that I was not going to wear a strapless dress.  And I am absolutely in love with my strapless dress.

hmm the size – we thought 30 was intimate – we have a hard limit due to venue size at 70 and we have 80 ppl on our A list plus a B list sigh

Budget – $15K – hmmm well add 40 ppl and budget is $22k

dress – no strapless nor corset – erp until I tried one on – OMG those make you look amazing


ummm I think that is all so far lol

So far :

– Number of Guests: Started off as “intimate” with about 80 and now its at 180

– Venue location: I really wanted something unique like a museum but will be having it at a banquet hall in a restaurant

– Maid/Matron of Honor: I fired my original Maid/Matron of Honor (I am a horrible person, I know)

So far, that is pretty much it.

Mine  didn’t change too much, but Fiance wanted things very formal and fancy… until he realized how much that cost!  Then it didn’t bother him so much to make it more casual.


Also my dress- I was adament on having straps…. and I don’t.

I did not want to hire a videographer and now Fiance and I are interviewing one right now.  Go figure!  The stuff they do now is so much better than the crap they did even 5 years ago.  No more of those awkward table interviews!  Thank goodness! 

Oh, and I did not want a strapless gown… low and behold – that is exactly what I fell in love with.  Go figure!

  • number of guests – we did not want it as big as it was
  • TULLE – i despise tulle, its not that i altered this its that my Mother-In-Law went behind my back to buy a shit ton of it and decorate our entire ceremony/reception with it
  • location – we were adamant about having our wedding somewhere other than GA, MD or VA because thats where all of our families were but we ended up getting married in GA

i always envisioned an indoor wedding. the stress of thinking about the weather seemed so uneccessary… but now, my venue is providing an outdoor space and for free, versus renting a second indoor room which will squeeze the budget pretty hard. i still stress about weather but the pictures will probably be 100 times better outdoors.
