How We See Our Wedding





Since announcing our engagement, I have had lots of questions here on my blog and over on my Instagram about our wedding. Even though at this point we do have most of the day planned out, we have been reluctant to tell people because we are well aware that our day is very different to your normal ‘traditional’ wedding. I feel like most people would completely understand some of the things that we are changing and scrapping, but then again, I know that there would be a small group of people who would be hyper critical and to be honest I don’t really want to open myself up to that.

I guess the main thing to share about our wedding day is that it is going to be a super relaxed day from start to finish. We are very laid-back kind of people and I want a day that I can look back on with nothing but fond memories and nothing too hectic and stressful. So, when we sat down together to start mapping out our big day, we decided that instead of sticking to the status quo and doing things that we don’t really want to do, we would do things our way and please us, rather than all of our guests.

We just thought about all of the weddings that we have gone to and the things that we liked and the things that weren’t really for us. Our best friends for example got married last year and even though it was a lovely day, people moaned about the food, the music didn’t start, and they ended up bickering all day because not everything was perfect. In the end, we created a plan for the day that suited us both. The main emphasis would be on the vows and the importance of the ceremony, rather than splashing the cash on a big lavish ceremony when it simply isn’t our taste or what we want to do.

I feel like in this day and age, people are competing against each other for who can have the bigger and most expensive wedding and to me it seems like they are completely missing what the actual point in getting married actually is.

It is things like the first dance, speeches, formal sit-down meal and walking down the aisle that we are scrapping all together. I am not a fan of attention, for that matter, neither of us are and that is why we want to strip it back and just keep the day with the key things that are important to us and that will not make us feel uncomfortable. I know some people have said that without them things it may not seem like a wedding, but at the end of the day it is OUR wedding and we will ultimately do what we want to do. I am normally a people pleaser, but this is something that we have decided as a couple to put our foot down about.

All that we want is a special day where we have a lovely ceremony and then we want to sit back, relax and have fun with the people that are closest to us. Sure, it would have been easier to elope if we wanted a simple wedding, but there would have been so many people that we would have missed not being a part of our big day. Like I said, the important part to us is actually getting married and that is what we want the focus to be on. Very relaxed, easy going and most important fun for everybody!
