I’ll have to go past-tense since my wedding was almost 6 years ago.


I didn’t care about the chairs.  They did match my color, so that didn’t bother me.  I also didn’t care about tablecloths or centerpieces.  My venue had white tablecloths and really simple centerpieces.

Do I want it to look nice? Absolutely. Do I particularly care what “nice” is? Nope. That’s probably why I’m having the hardest time deciding on anything.

I really care about a couple of things, my dress and veil and my groom’s outfit, the photographer, the food, the open bar and I would love it if my reception site, still looking btw, had a wonderful view. Now I could care less about the invitations, I just want them to look pretty and blend but I dont care about the weight of the paper or calligraphy or any of that, the linens and the table settings I dont care about, just as long as they are the formal type, I had never even considered the chairs lol and the decorations, even though I would love to have one of those amazing weddings that are just filled with the most beautiful flowers, I don’t really mind if they are simple or if there aren’t any! I would love to have family style seating and food outdoors and that really doesn’t allow for centerpieces and if I get the view I think that nature decorates enough 😉

Mostly everything. The only things I put my foot down on was the catering (It had to be a childhood restaraunt. Mother-In-Law wanted a local burger joint to cater the wedding — no joke) and I had to have real table settings. Mother-In-Law wanted plastic/paper and I just flat out refused.

Everything else I was/am totally cool with. Colors to cake to linens to music to whatever. I’m easy going.

A lot really. I care about the dress and about the food (I love food) but other than that, don’t care.

I care about the dress, the food, and the man.  Other than that, everything has been negotiable.

I didn’t care at all about the invites and shoes.  Didn’t care much about the flowers (heck I ordered those 3 weeks before the wedding).  Did care much about the guest book, the favors, the bm dresses, or my dress.  Nothing really matttered all that much.  I had to like everything, but didn’t have to LOVE it or had an image of what was the ‘perfect’ item.

I don’t care about the flowers.  Just pick what looks nice and go.

I don’t care about the pictures. I’ll never have kids so who needs a wedding album?  I have a photographer.  Good enough.

I don’t care about showers or party favors or robes for bridesmaids or any other sort of accessory.  All a waste of time, money and energy in my mind.

I dont care about what my Fiance wears. I told him to pick black or grey in any style and since we like the same things I knew I would like what he picked.

Other than my cake I don’t care about food. My Future Mother-In-Law is awesome though and had a lot of great ideas. We are doing chocolate roses and chocolate covered strawberries in addition to cake.

I don’t care about a lot of the details but I am doing most of it myself so i keep just picking things that I like a go with it 🙂

I couldn’t give two craps about the dress code. It’s a formal museumish wedding, and I know people are going to come in jeans. I’ve let it go.

I don’t care about favors. Not having them.

I don’t *really* care about flowers. At least, not enough to pay through the nose for a professional to do them. I’ll be buying in bulk and DIYing.

I don’t really care about an officiant. I know we need one, but I don’t really have a hometown pastor and Fiance is agnostic, so any of our friends would be equally fine.

I don’t care about the decor, cake, food, stuff like that. My mom is really crafty & my aunts are amazing cooks,so I know they have it under control. 

I do care about the looks of the wedding party & us & the colors. THere are SOOOO many freaking shades of aqua blue it stresses me out. And I do care about who I’m inviting and who they bring. This is not a bring whoever you want party, its a wedding that I want to share with people I care about.

The flowers! Oh my gosh, I look at galleries of bouquet pictures and they all look the same to me. Same goes for boutonneires.

I also don’t care about seating arrangements. The whole thing seems like a lot of extra work for little payoff — most of the people I’d seat together would just sit together by choice. And making escort cards — ugh.

I really just want to have fun… don’t care to bog myself down with all the little details! As long as I get married and that there’s food and drink and people have fun, I’m good.
