Nice, Easy, Fuss-Free

While most brides want their weddings to be a show, I want ours to be nice, easy and fuss-free. I totally respect extravagant, full-production weddings. But my exposure to big parties and events (from my job) made me sick and tired of big parties. And in the world of weddings, it all boils down to priorities. And our priorities are to get married and to build our new home at the same time.

I want to wear a short dress. One that will allow me to run around and dance around. I've seen a lot of brides nailed down by their heavy gowns. I can't let that happen. I'm the host of the party (well one of the 2 hosts) and I need to be able to entertain our guests well.

I want my hair and makeup to be simple. I want to look like me, only better.

We're not getting a coordinator. I have more siblings than the fingers on my hands. We're working out everything with them.
No secondary sposors, no flower girls and ring bearers. Just the best man who will carry the ring and the maid of honor and bridesmaids who will be helping us with everything.
When we started planning our wedding, my fiancé and I decided we both want a simple wedding. I said it's like we'll hear mass with all our loved ones, then we'll treat them all to dinner in our favorite restaurant - but we're all dressed to the nines. :)
We're only inviting family and our closest friends.
At the end of the day, it's not about your dream dress or your dream videographer and photographer. It's about 2 people living their dream and sharing it with the most important people in their lives.
