WHAT WORDS WOULD YOU USE TO DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING?
Beautiful, Simple, stress free and everything we could have imagined
November 30th on a cruise just us two on the beach taking a selfie and he asked me to marry him
I at first thought I wanted this huge elaborate wedding, just scrolling through online and wanting what everyone else had/ was doing.. But then we took a step back and realized it was so overwhelming.. and $$$ and we knew then that we wanted smaller and sooner so i wasn’t getting overwhelmed with all the decision
THE PLANNING PROCESS:
After going to look at a few larger venues i woke up one morning and knew what i wanted.. to do the micro route. so 4am i was searching elope/micro and found TBE and knew then that this was the right choice.. AND that we could do it in 2 months. why wait right?!
YOUR OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES
my dress was from The Dressing Room – downtown st pete. They were awesome! My necklace we knew we wanted some type of drop necklace and Helzberg Diamonds had exactly what we were looking for. The rest of my stuff, earrings, hair piece bracelet were all amazon/TJ maxx etc
His suit was from JCPennys
Not skipping on the traditional things that happen on our wedding day. I still got ready with friends and family in the AM, still got to do a first look with my dad and got to do a first dance/cake cutting with my hubby. & seeing all of our friends having a blast and hanging out on the trolley was fun!!
ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES
Enjoy your day and if you don’t want to go the huge wedding route.. don’t! Most friends and family will be ok either way. its YOUR day. Don’t forget the personal touches
