    I think the excitement has died down.  I wish I got here sooner. Drama on my local.  I've been dying for months for this and now it's over.

    Whachoo talkin' bout, Willis? No one even said anything to you or about you.  Also, I couldn't care less about your budget.  Good hosting has nothing to do with budget.  You can be a good hostess on a shoestring.

    At first I loved you.

    Then I hated you by the end of the post.

    I saw the Egyptian Lover perform at the club I worked at when I was in high school.  I even got some free records.  Yes, RECORDS.

    WOW!  So I guess we are not grown enough to discuss me to me.  Let me tell you where I come from, I am a grown woman who is defending your country and trying to afford to have a wedding on the little bit of pay I get.  I am shocked at the way YOU women act.  I thought a forum like this would be to support each other but obvously not. Women are such judgemental creatures and you woman take the cake.  Really ladies???

    Until the first full year of being one! Anniversary

    No, we did discuss you in your thread, but you are not alone in your philosophy about not hosting your guests but inviting them to your wedding.  This has been an ongoing discussion for some time.

    While I appreciate your throwing down the I'm in the military card, that and your budget have nothing to do with my issue (I will not speak for the others).  I believe that if you are going to invite guests to your wedding that you properly receive them.  If you cannot afford to do it in it's current plan, then you have some options.  You can do as I did and wait to get married.  My FI and I have been together for going on 7 years and we waited until we were in a place financially to host a reception for our guests that we could afford but was still what we wanted.  Another option is to scale back, don't do a DW, be married at home and DIY much of your wedding.  The final option is to not invite guests to your elopement.  If they crash, they crash.

    There are women on this site who make tiny budgets work.  My sister was married and hosted a reception for under $5K.  Some people don't even have that.  A girlfriend is getting married in a home in northern CA with most of the family catering.  There ARE options to have a wedding AND a reception.  The "judging" is for the poor etiquette that you are exhibiting.  The "it's my day and I don't care if it's bad etiquette" attidude is what the women are judging. 

    There are many ways to get married and receive your guests, but inviting people (and you ARE inviting people) to a destination wedding and then not feeding said people is in poor taste.  Also, I bet you will find more than one military bride working on her wedding here or over on the military board.  However, I think you will be hard pressed to find anyone that agrees that inviting people to your wedding and expecting them to pay for their meals at the reception is a good idea.

    Personally, I took the thread off line because I didn't want it to turn into a direct attack on you and just leave it vague since we have been having this conversation for a while.  Also, there was another comment about us freaks that I thought should be taken into a new thread too.  You don't have to agree with me.  I don't have to agree with you.

    I do hope you will reconsider and find a way to host something, however small for your guests.  Perhaps you can do a cheaper ceremony to cut some corners.  There are other ways to manage it as well and there are many women here who will help you with that.  IF you should choose to decide to figure out how to host your guests on a shoestring budget.
