I just made a comment on another thread that I don’t expect perfection or “the best,” and it got me wondering… how does everyone see themselves as a bride? feel free to create your own!! (you can also vote multiples if you’re more than one flavor)

I am a combination of the surfer and the perfectionist, which, I know, they contradict. But as much as I’m detail oriented I’m also pretty easygoing most of the time.

Wahahaha I am TOTALLY a she-groom.
FI handled ALL of the big stuff, I just got my craft on with all the little details.

@Andthepupmakes3: If I had to create a type for myself it would be:
The Turtle Bride – You overthink everything and wind up just wanting to hide in your shell for a while; your mentality is “Can we just skip everything and be married?”
If I was choosing strictly off of your choices, I would go with The Eloper. I’d love to elope because it’s so much simpler than having a wedding, but FI already ruled that option out as invalid.

I was a combination of the Perfectionist and a bit of the Surfer and a bit of the DIY bride. Anything that was DIY I analyzed into the ground. Anything that was a paid service I was the Surfer about.

- Wedding: July 2014 - Prague
Budget/Surfer. I just want a pretty dress, gorgeous shoes, and a FUN party. I don’t care about a LOT of stuff.

I’m inventing the Procrastinator/Mind -Changer. I take ages to decide on something, then shortly change my mind. I’ve done this with my dress, a cake, wedding songs and music. I’m pretty sure I’m slowly killing my MOH with all my FB messages about ideas, decisions then mind changes. Lol

@Andthepupmakes3: I’m kind of a mix of The Surfer, and the Budget Bride… I want to have the least stressful wedding possible, and thankfully my venue’s handling pretty much everything. I’m also DIYing my invitations, save the dates, cake topper, and some of my flowers to save money.

@Andthepupmakes3: I’m a mix between Eloper and Budget. I don’t understand the fuss around wedding, I care to some point but I don’t think it’s ”the” most important day of my life. I also don’t see it like the achievement of a goal and I don’t see it like an important social status. I don’t care I could have just not married at all lol. I’m more down-to-earth, we’re signing papers to legally protect each other, and the wedding is a good pretext to reunite both our families together (which basically never happens) to celebrate with us. But I’m not an ”eloper” in the sense that I absolutely want it to be FI and I alone. Family is important. That’s why we decided not to elope, but to be honest, we’d rather spend more on our honeymoon than on our wedding.
Speaking of which, I’m absolutely into budgeting and getting more for less. I can’t understand paying close to the equivalent of a year’s income for a day (because of what I’ve said above). I often say I can’t afford to have a 10K wedding because I’m a student, but that’s half-true. Even with a 50K income a year, I would still refuse to spend 10K over my wedding. Would it make the planning process easier if I had a bigger budget ? Our course. It would at least facilitate some decisions, as right now, 90% of the time I feel as though I’m sacrificing something in order to have something else. But I feel deep satisfaction in the fact that we will succeed in having the wedding we want, for a fraction of the cost.

@Andthepupmake indecisive bride. I’ve flip flopped on everything except our venue and catering, and I mean EVERYTHING!

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle
I’m a mix of the Eloper and the Surfer. We were just going to Elope, but now we’re including like 20 ppl so it’s going to be a small wedding. There will be a 5 course meal afterwards, but I’m not having things like a DJ or a bouquet/garter toss or even centerpieces. I am splurging on the photographer, location, meal, and look though!

I’ve added indecisive thanks to both of you reminding me this is definitely a type!!!

I’d say a mix – budget bride/surfer

@Andthepupmakes3: I chose the eloper even though I’m not technically eloping. I don’t see the big fuss over weddings, I just want to marry the love of my life and be around the immediate people I love (less than 25 guests). We are having a very small intimate wedding and going to dinner after.
Not quite eloping because it is planned, there will be guests, and I wanted to wear a big white dress 🙂
But there are also things I think are of high importance for that day – for example – we’re getting FI a custom fitted 3-piece suit that he can always have. It’ll be his wedding day and he wants to look his best AND have something long to keep long term.

I’m an eloper/surfer. I am just ready to show up and have fun. I think I would prefer to have had a elopement but there were enough reasons for FI and I that it wasn’t an option. So I am having a very elopy-style wedding.
