  • Wedding: March 2018

I wanted a civil ceremony in the beautiful circa 1450 castle in the little village where my father was born. I’ve wanted to get married there since I was 7 (was 27 when he proposed). He wanted a Catholic church wedding. He won.

I’m still absolutely gutted I can’t have my wedding at the castle. (It’s not big enough to have the wedding breakfast and reception there so they only hire it for ceremonies and photos so it’s not like we can get married at the nearest Catholic church and have the rest of the day there instead, that wouldn’t have been a problem).

  • Wedding: September 2016

I wanted to elope during our pre-planned vacation to Maui, but Fiance wanted the whole “dearly beloved, we are gathered here today….” nonsense. Of course, I’m still the one that ends up planning everything (grr) and we’re paying for it, but I guess it’s nice that I get to pick the theme and execute it?

emitchell456 :  His compromise was letting me have a wedding with guests – he did not want that kind of attention at all.  Mine was letting him cook the reception food to help take the focus off of him and allow him to chat with guests in a more relaxed manner.

As far as budget, venue, what to cook, how many people to invite and all that stuff, we were always on the same page, so that was easy.  He let me do whatever regarding things like flowers and decor b/c he knew I wasn’t going to go nuts and it’s not his forte.

I want a small wedding with 25-30 guests at most and a quiet reception, but Fiance wants all his family there who he’s very close to. So our wedding will be a little bit more of an event with probably around 100 people, but I found a location that I love and we’re still doing a pretty low-key reception so I’m happy with how we were able to compromise.
