I've looked through that site and found it to be a little overwhelming. Some of those weddings look way more elaborate than I want. I just got a book today called "Bridal Bargains" which is pretty helpful. I don't like paying full price for anything and a lot of wedding stuff seems way overpriced. So far this book has given some good ideas for saving money without actually going cheap on anything.
Now, that sounds good!
I'm a bit astounded at the year and a half planning, the cost, the complications I have been hearing about.
No one regrets simplicity. Well, most people don't.
I have two daughters who are close to marriage age, but neither are looking to get married any time soon. Both have partners, one is living with her man and the other is still in college (well Grad School.) I beginning to think we'll just give them some cash to go to Vegas and have a party for a few friends when they get back. I hate complicated planning of anything
. Like I said, I planned my own wedding in about 6 weeks, bought a bride's maid dress (much less expensive) just had a circlet of flowers with a small veil in back
(yeah, like anyone was gonna believe a veiled face on me. LOL!) And we did it before the internet. But, I prefer simple things overall most of the time.
What Tuesday said, do what YOU want to do. But, remember it's only ONE day. You have the rest of your life to be
married, so don't go overboard on a single day that will be over before you know it.
