    Yes, I would be totally fine with a city hall wedding. That’s how my parents got married. If the both of you are in love, none of the other stuff/fluff should really matter.

    Absolutely I’d be ok with it. I like being married much more than the process of getting married.

    Yes, absolutely. I had a (more or less) traditional wedding because my husband really wanted one. If it were up to me, we’d have gone to the courthouse and then to a nice dinner with our families afterwards.

    freshflowers:  I would be fine with it, with a few stipulations. I’d still want some nice pictures and our immediate families to be there. Then for all of us to have a nice dinner after our wedding. I guess this wouldn’t work for very small courthouses or for people with very large families, but this is what we were considering before deciding on a more traditional wedding.

    freshflowers:  Yes. We got married at town hall with just DH’s parents (we needed witnesses). We didn’t dress up, no flowers, no cake, minimal pictures, and the ceremony lasted less than 5 minutes. Signed the documents then went out for dinner.

    I always wanted a huge wedding. But when I met Darling Husband, none of that stuff mattered. We just wanted to be married and we are both so happy with the way we did things. We have great memories from that day and it doesn’t feel any less special.

    Yup. We got married via justice of the peace with our parents in attendance. Good enough for us. We later had a pretty princess day back home with all our friends and family.

    This was the route we were originally going to take. I even had a pink dress with a tulle skirt picked out and we were just going to have our immediate family there. My mom and dad realllyy wanted otherwise so we did a 50 person wedding. Sometimes I wish we would have done our original plan but it would have hurt a lot of people on both our sides.

    I originally just wanted to have a town hall ceremony and then a party afterward but my fiance wanted us to have something bigger.

    No, because it was important to me to get married in a church.  I would at least have wanted my immediate family there, and for us to be in “wedding clothes” and me holding flowers.  And a nice meal afterward.  That’s as stripped down as I’d go.

    liaeona:  Yes! My only care was getting to wear an actual wedding gown! And I did! We were married in a gazebo outside our courthouse and I was told by a ton of people they rarely saw a bride in a full-on wedding dress at the courthouse. That was the one thing I HAD to have. The man, the ring, and the dress. Everything else I didnt care about! haha
