I am a twig so I disappear in the ballgown style. I like the fit and flare look because it gives me some curves. My dress will have to have straps though, because I can't keep a strapless in place, plus I will be getting married at an amusement park and want to be able to ride the rides without any worry!
I define an offbeat wedding by being a wedding that is not "the norm". Wearing a colored wedding dress or having a theme wedding would both fit that. I think being an offbeat bride means that you don't want your entire wedding to be traditional, you want to add a bit of your own uniqueness to it.
All that matters is that you like it. I would buy it and try it with your dress, if you don't like it return it.
We just spread my grandmothers ashes over labor day weekend. Everyone was contacted by phone, which worked out fine. I think an invitation would be a little weird personally. There were only about 8 of us, but we didn't have it on the water, we all had a little baggie and found a place to scatter the ashes (also a little weird but that was my grandfather's request). I love the idea of having a song played while you are spreading the ashes and throwing the flowers. I hope it turns out well for you guys!
Thank you for all your replies! We have been talking to Cedar Point and a few of the hotels in the area. If we get married on the beach (where I want to) they will include 12 tickets and extra tickets will be discounted to about $30. We think what we might do is have a late morning/early afternoon wedding on the beach, a quick cocktail hour/pictures and then a quick lunch and reception at the breakers. Afterwards we would have the entire evening to enjoy the amusement park.
