Quints Advice for a Perfect WEDDING
QuintessentialOHara · 16/04/2013 18:14
A. Accept that there are only two important people in the whole scenario. You and Groom.
B. Accept that only you will think this.
Therefore you do the following:
- Save up for the perfect wedding. 20-30k whatever your budget may be.
2. Make up your gift list.
3. Pop down to the registry office/church/synagogue and get married.
4. Buy all the items on your wedding list.
Sorted. You get to celebrate with the only people who matters in the wedding and indeed in the marriage, AND you get all the items on your list, and no interfering relatives and bridezilla accusations!

You'd still have the interfering relatives.
As soon as DH & I got engaged, DM started (repeatedly) telling me dire stories about a friend of hers whose daughter had got married in Las Vegas without telling or inviting anyone, and how terrible it was and how I wasn't to do anything like that because my DM would find it so unforgivably upsetting and would do nothing but weep into her pillow for the next 6 months or so.
The recriminations from your perfect wedding would have lasted for years.

This is brilliant! My wedding is distant past now but I have suggested it to DD1 for the future. Not that I don't want to go to her wedding, but last year DB got married and my goodness, the stress! Plus, instead of spending 10k which we don't have on random guests for her and a dress she will never wear again, I can slip her a thousand to spend on herself and everyone is happy.
DD1 thinks she might like to get married in PJs, maybe a nice white nightie. DD2 favours her crocodile onesie
