What makes a wedding?

8 Nov

Since starting to plan our wedding a few months ago, I’ve experienced lots of feelings, ideas and emotions on the subject.  Thinking about weddings, talking to people about weddings, and researching weddings brings many interesting things to light. 

When you think about weddings, do you think of…

  • A big white dress
  • a church
  • a banquet hall
  • a fancy reception
  • a huge cake

Or maybe you think of…

  • who will share your day with you
  • what you will say in your vows
  • the music you will play
  • the food you will serve

Do you…

  • elope
  • have a big wedding with everyone you know and all your relatives
  • have a small intimate wedding with close family and friends

Will your wedding be about…

  • the ceremony
  • the party
  • combination of the two with equal importance

Weddings can have themes, color schemes, cultural influences, religious influences, and family influences.  Do you do something that is expected of you by your family and tradition?  Maybe you do something that is popular and of the moment for weddings in your town.  Do you play it safe and have a simple and classic wedding to remember for years to come? 

What makes a wedding?

I’m curious if anyone who reads this would want to talk about their own weddings…

Not necessarily what I should do, but what you did.   How you felt leading up to your wedding day…on your wedding day…the day after your wedding.  Or how you feel looking back at your wedding.

Things to think about 🙂

    I’m happy to chat about both my weddings. It’s funny – with my second wedding there’s one thing I continue to think about to this day that I would definitely do differently, and it’s a biggie!
