Just Engaged Couples
Anyone interested in sharing their wedding ideas, song choices, and even pictures?!
Non traditional approach
So me and my fiancé are very excited to get married. We don't have a date planned, we are taking our time. Both of us don't have any friends, and his family lives 3 hours away in the city.
We both don't really want an actual wedding ceremony. We don't feel personally the invite list would make up for the cost.
So we have a compromise. We want to have a quick courthouse marriage. But we would still like to have a celebration. I suggested an engagement party midway between out families so they could both attend. He suggested we have a reception without the ceremony. I really want to plan the reception, but I want to know some people's opinions.
Is one cheaper/better than the other. Keep in mind that I'm a big spender but I know how to save more as well.
