Did you have the wedding of dreams or just get married? If you didn't have the wedding of your dreams, would you want to repeat your vows? Thanks to all who answer!

I take it as you are not married? What kind of wedding do you want? How many would attend?

I almost got married as a teenager, and I had this huge expensive wedding planned at that time. The whole thing wound up not happening because of a major misunderstanding in the nature of the relationship. So when I met someone that I really did want to marry, none of that seemed to matter to me. And what mattered to him was the commitment part of the marriage, not the ceremony. So the wedding I wound up having was small, personal, and perfect. We had only our closest friends there, had the people we love most in our wedding (just a best man and a matron of honor, and their kids who did flowers and rings and all that), and did the parts of the tradition that meant something to us. I can't imagine it having been any different now. =)

My wedding almost 20 years ago was one of the important occasions that happen in my life. We had a church wedding, with my sisters, brothers, and hubby's sisters and brothers as secondary sponsors - maid of honor, bridesmaids, bestman. It was well attended, all my family and husband's family were there, some of our close relatives, close friends and selected officemates attended. The reception was held in a restaurant. It did go on smoothly according to our plan. My hubby and I planned our wedding after being sweetheart for almost 5 years. We saved for it, alloted some amount from our monthly earning and deposited in a bank. My in laws and parents shared some part also in the expenses. It was a wedding planned by my hubby and me, but of course with the blessing of both our parents.

Let's see if I can remember! LOL. Almost 37 years ago. My husband and I were both recuperating from the flu and were a little apathetic. The tuxedo place messed up on a lot of things....his pants were too short...his boots showed in the pictures. My dad's cuff links and cumberbun were left out. The usher didn't get his cumberbun either. But, oh well...those kinds of things just don't matter in the long run. We renewed our vows at our 25th and had a wonderful celebration. I had lost weight and made myself a new wedding dress. It was great. Lots of friends and family came.

I was married over 20 years ago now and it was just what we wanted. Not too big but lots of food and family and everyone had a great time. I couldn't afford to do it all over anyway, so I'll have to be happy with the one we had...

My first wedding was like a page out of a story book. I hated every minute of it. I was surrounded by people who just showed up because htey were invited, and I felt like a specimen under a microscope. My hubby and I got maaried int he courthouse, just us and our kids, and although it wasn't extravagant, to me it was perfect. We got married and went to Door County, WI for the weekend. Everything was perfect as far as we were concerned, and I wouldn't trade it for a "real" wedding for anything.

I had the weddings of my dreams. The only thing I didn't have was a honeymoon and that was because my in-laws were being difficult and failed to tell us a the last minute. That they would not be giving us a honeymoon and my husband was convince they would. Otherwise then that I was the only girl. So my dad made sure that I had everything I wanted and the reception was beautiful with a live band and we danced and simply just had fun. I told my husband I would love to renew my vows on our 10th anniversary just so I could get the money's worth for my dress lol.

No, mine was not wedding of dreams, we just got married. In Indian society normally marriages are arranged by the parents, so one is required to go with the rituals of traditions involved in the marriage. We went through all the motions. Wedding no doubt is the most important event in one's life, but I think everyone is not lucky enough to arrange wedding of his/her dreams. There is no end to dreams. Wedding is such an occasion, that you can spend unlimited amount on wedding. Well, our society is generally very conventional society so we are not likely to get another chance to perform another wedding of our dreams LOL.
