This will be my second wedding, FIs first. I originally wanted to go away FI and I to get married, he didn't, so we compromised and are now having a DW nearby with our parents, siblings and a few close friends. I wanted to keep the DW guest count low because I personally don't like all of the "bride" type attention and I really think I just feel awkard because it is my second wedding. I also feel awkward about having my dad walk me down the aisle, because I have been married before and partly because FI and I already live together which was very upsetting to my parents.
Does anyone have any ideas to make the ceremony more just about "us" or should I just choke it up and walk down the aisle with my dad??
And now for some more venting....I posted earlier on the etiqutte board about this...and sure got some opinions back...We're having the small DW and it's small basically because I don't like to make a big scene about all this wedding hoopla, the following week my parents have offered to host a luncheon for both of our extended families only and so now FI and I feel like we should have some type of celebration wtih all of our friends that won't be at the DW (it will be to celebrate our marriage but also to celebrate our new home we are building). Most all of the posters said they dislike these types of wedding parades as they think one big event should be done and that should be it to celebrate the wedding. Which I understand. I guess I am stuck in a hard spot because I truly want something small but I also want to please everyone else. I am wondering if anyone else has dealt with this or had celebrations following their actual wedding ceremony?
