I've Been MIA

Good Morning Girls,

I've been MIA the last few weeks and wanted to stop in and say hi. After WMC, I just got totally out of wedding mode, and now I'm back, with some big changes on the horizon.

FI and I realized that the big wedding we were planning just isn't feasible for us. It's too much of an added expense on our lives and at the end of the day, even if I had the money, I'd rather spend it on other things.

That being said, we're probably either doing a courthouse wedding, followed by a nice dinner with family and friends, or a very small and intimate ceremony followed by dinner. My mom wants us to run off to Vegas... I'm keeping that option on the back burner.

But I'm sticking around to plan my small wedding dinner and of course, to watch all you lovely ladies get married and see all your beautiful weddings come together.

XOXO.

    I say Congrats on your decision! I love the wedding we are going to have, but in hindsight I would have used the money for a house and had a small intimate wedding.  

    Glad to see you are back---i think everyone has been on a little less lately.  Spring is busy :)

    Steph! Truly a wise decision, and it fits what you want, so all the better! Your wedding will be beautiful whether here or in Vegas, and if at the end of the day you're happy, that's all that matters!

    Yay for staying active!

    Thanks girls.

    You know, the number one thing I hear from girls that have already gotten married (not necessarily from this board) is that if they could do it all again, they would do something really small and buy a house or travel, or anything else instead.

    As much as I wanted the wedding, I was doing it because I wanted to have a fun party with all my family and friends, and for me, $12k for a party is just not in the books. I'd rather do something small with those closest to me, and party it up Ralph & Stephanie Style.

    If we hadn't already put deposits down on our venue almost a year ago I think I would have done something very low key as well.  I think your plan sounds perfect!
