How would you like your Wedding to be?

Some women dream of big, lavish weddings. Others are happy with a small wedding for just close friends and family. I dream of eloping. lol. I would like to elope to an island or to some place in Europe, get married there, and spend there a few days or a week celabrating our honey moon. And then when I come back, I announce to everyone (friends and family) that I'm married! They'd be so surprised :0 And that's it. That's what I would like to do. Not your traditional woman dream of a wedding but that is what I would like to do. How about you?

I'm not too picky. I'd probably be good with something like someone suggested in a post before mine. Just going to the justice of the peace to get the paperwork done. There's no sense in spending a fortune for one day. Spend that cash on a week long vacation to somewhere amazing. :D That's a much better way to ring in a marriage. [or even plan a trip for you, your new spouse, and family and friends. Treat everyone! That seems like a better idea than a several hundred dollar gown, combined with decorations, a caterer, etc.]

me i prefer small wedding only, my family and selected friends only plus my husband and his family too... this is so special date for me and to my husband so no need to invite huge of people. If there is a wedding just a wife and husband only i will surely do that.

My dream wedding is smallish at DisneyWorld in Epcot with the reception on the UnderSea aquarium room. As it is, I'll be getting married in Vegas since that's where I live. It'll be nice, but not my dream wedding.

I would like my wedding to be a month long affair with parties,cocktails,luncheons,bridal shower packed with all the action.I would like a real band to play and would like to get married on the beach at night with decorations done in all purple and pink flowers.I would want it to be the grandest affair of my life and something that i always look back with fond memories and feel that I was treated like a real princess!!

in many ways mine will be my dream wedding. we're having a handfasting in a stone circle on the moors, and then doing the legal paperwork beside an underground lake, lit up with hundreds of candles. then back to the our orchard (not so grand as it sounds, we both live with my parents) for a big outdor party with a big bonfire, and lots of cheap and cheerful, but tasty nibbles, a big dish of curry and chilli so people can have more substantial food too. lots of drink, lots of music, lots of guests camping the night in the orchard so it's like our very own music festival. if money were no object there would be little I would change. it would still be all the same places. just if I had more money, I'd have more food, more drink, more flowers, the place would be heaving with beautiful masses of David Austen Roses, there would be someone else to stick the nibbles in the oven, I'd arrange a double decker bus to take people to the moors, to the caves, and then back to the party. I'd issue all guests with their own special wedding bus ticket, and we'd both ride on the bus with all the guests, drinking bubbly and having fun. then we'd end the night with fireworks. so yeah, basically if I had a huge budget, I'd get the best photographer I can find, a videographer, fireworks and tons and tons of flowers. other than that, it would be pretty much the same.

I never had a wedding..I am married but not in a church and with a beautiful gown wish I have always dreamed of..I want a Forest wedding full of flowers all kinds of flowers and plants and trees.. I want my gown to be white sexy and very nice off the shoulder gown and above the knee sort of like a flowing dress and I want my hair adorned with flowers..my veil as long as the aisle...My brides maid wearing short dresses and holding a wand like fairies...with ribbons and flowers on it..Their hairs adorned with flowers as well..The earth would have scattered petals of different colored roses...There will be orchids, tulips, sampaguita, and other different kinds of flowers.....There would be candles as well..I want to have my wedding close to nature with, earth, wind, fire and water. So there should be a body of water there. When the wedding starts I will alit on a boat filled with flowers to go to my groom..Isn't it wonderful? Oh I wish it can still come true...

Hello candiec2005 I like a romantic party, use Victorian gown, big hall and everybody are dancing beautifully. The decoration are all tulips and roses with a lot of candles. I always dream that I will be a princess that day. LOL.I will give a little romantic surprise for my groom just to tell him that I love him so much. I want all my close friends are there to be part of my big day. I want to be perfect in ceremony on church or in the party. My wedding is june 29th. And I want to be perfect even I can make my dream come true because its so expensive. But romantic enough for me. God bless you *angel www.beautycosmeticitps.com

I never actually thought about how I would like my wedding to be. I guess there are benefits to having a big wedding as well as a small one....as well as eloping! I just haven't decided what the best route, for me, would be.

I dont want a traditional wedding. I find it stupid to spend thousands of dollars on one day. I want to get married in front of the Justice of the peace with a couple friends as witnesses. Then I want to have a big reception over a weekend. But the deal is everyone has to bring a dish to share and drinks. Then I wont have to spend a fortune. I would of course supply everything but the food like cups, plates, tables and the building. We would rent a place and have a huge party, camping, boating and such. It would just be a good time!! ~May The Kisses Of An Angel Cover And Protect You Always~ Copper
