Would you want to hold your wedding ceremony in the beach? Where your bridesmaids all wear straw skirts like the Hawaiian style? Or Would you like your wedding ceremony to be in a church? Or Would you prefer not to hold a ceremony at all? Or how did you celebrate your wedding? I would want my wedding to be held in a church. I'd like to walk down that isle and wear a gown. =) One of my girl pals wans to have a garden theme wedding. IN the open under a canopy of doves.

grinch...I am married but I would like a second chance to express myself if really there is rencarnation that I can be born again. Anyway still my dream of wedding was Garden party, I want filled with lots of flowers of roses with nice finger snack foods and few bride's maids... But my wish never happened on my last wedding, even though some of it kinda similar, but I have to respect my parents in law, since both me and husband came from different city, and they want it to be held in a hotel. It was shangri-la hotel and the bad thing was, it held in jakarta, indonesia, and on the day we wed, it was a famous day for wedding, I have same friend who wed too...I couldn't believe it that on that time there were 5 wedding parties in different rooms..I can't imagine about 1 city, because the place we order for the cake, has 40 cakes for the same day wedding as me.... and because of it causes traffic jam all over the city...and some of the relatives came late and we have to wait for them...And I have to stand on the stage for 2 hours without have a chance to spend time with my invitation guests and friends who came from singapore...but lucky they wait for me until the party is over and we have a personal toast, Like it or not sometimes elder has to be respected. Hope you all will be luckier than me ^O^ and have your own wish. Cheerzzz and regal...I wish you have your own too...I am waiting for your next discussion about your wedding lol

let me find a suitable guy to date first... haha anyway, i know how it might feel to have all your friends celebrating the same wedding date as you. every woman wants to be the special one on her special day. but i'm happy that at least you respected your elders.. i salute you for that. some people these days would just go ahead with their plans... well, you could celebrate and exchange your wedding vows again next year.. =) maybe you can hold it in a garden. =)

I just want a simple wedding since swearing to God in any place is just the same. I want just a simple church wedding, even in any church.

I'd like to have a simple church wedding with a garden reception succeeding it. I always imagine myself being married with just a few people around to celebrate such sacred occasion, with only immediate families and closest friends. It shall be a solemn ceremony with lots of songs and chanting. Then the reception shall be wacky and entertaining.. there will be dancing and singing and cheering!. :-)

I would want a small, private wedding ceremony with only the closest relatives invited and a few friends. Maybe it'll be set in a church for a more traditional sense and the ceremony and reception be kept short. I think i'll be able to go through a wedding ceremony if i like my future husband enough hehe.

I had a civil wedding myself. It was held in a hotel. It was nice because all my family was there. I was wearing a wedding gown and all. We then had a reception at a resort we rented for those who can't come to the wedding.

I have a civil wedding and it was held at the mayor's office. Our reception was held at the beach. I want a church wedding but sad to say we can't have it because my husband was married at the catholic church so now we can't get married at the church. We are planning to have our second wedding and hopefully it would be in the church.

Hello, this is a timely question for my fiance and I are planning to be wed in church within the year. We want it to be simple attended by our family, close friends and people who have always supported us as we walk through life. We will have it in church and it has to be solemn for we are only getting married once in our life time. We want everyone who we love and who love us to witness that day for they have witness us along the way. I want it to be memorable and people to remember it as well.

Being a conservative at heart, I had a traditional Hindu Bengali wedding with all its pomp and splendour. For me, wedding is a one-time affair, its for keeps. So for that one time, I wanted to do it the way its always been done in our culture, our tradition. Though with dearth of helping hands the going was tough for my parents, they managed it off in the end.

Well when i got married i didnt have that much time nor we had that much freedom to think about all such things.In India from where i am most of the marriages are arranged marriages which means our parents choose our partners.Unlike marriages in many countries where its a marriage between two individuals in us its a marriage between two families of sorts.Parents choose our partners depending upon various factors the main being cultural similarities.We had a traditional marriage and i dont think many people experiment with it here.

You have no idea how much thought I have put into this question! The Reader's Digest version is this: I guess, after reading over previous answers, I am looking more toward a civil ceremony, although one of my sorority sisters, Robin, is an ordained minister so I'll have her officiate. The colors I have picked out are lavender and navy blue, with lavender and white daisies and cornflowers in the bouquets. The Bride's Maids' dresses will be two pieces with a navy a-line skirt and a lavender top in their choice of style, except my Maid of Honor whose "dress" will be the other way around - navy top, lavender skirt. I'd love to be near a waterfall, especially if I marry another water sign (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio... I'm a Scorpio), in mid-August, at sunset. I want all of the chairs in a circle (actually kind of more like a star) facing the altar so there's no Bride's side and Groom's side, just our guests at our wedding. The other detail that is important is the first row of the two sets of chairs behind us (facing Robin, the "legs" of the star, if you will) will be empty except for tea lights. After all of the guests are seated, the Best Man and my Maid of Honor will come in and light the candles then take their places at the altar. These are seats reserved for the loved ones who couldn't be with us. After the ceremony, I want a huge party with all of our friends and family, with food and dancing and general merry-making. Now.... I just have to find a groom

My ideal wedding: In October, outside, a gorgeous gown (maybe Vera Wang) off the shoulder, gazebo, tent reception, bridesmaids wear whatever they want (pantsuits or dresses) in matching colors (haven't decided), rose bouquet in the shape of a heart and I already have my wedding pose picked out in my head which will be black and white and outdoors. I definitely do not want an indoor wedding and I do not want to be perched in front of an altar like all the other brides for my wedding photo. I want the romantic side of the wedding, not just traditional. The song I want my father to dance with is by John Mayer, Daughters. ANd I want Jimmy soul (if you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife); Perry Como ( Pappa loves Mambo) to be played at the reception. NOt sure what I want to walk down the aisle to, probably something classical played by violins. Basically if and when I find my guy (or he finds me) he doesn't have to plan anything other than help with food choices, drinks, and music. The rest I have already figured out...even the invites are in my mind.

Since I'm already married, I'll answer this question very gracefully. I wanted beyond a shadow of a doubt a debtfree wedding and honeymoon. If that meant that we eloped and got married inside of the minister's office, then that was what we were going to do. However, various family members all pitched in for this and that, and we ended up spending a total of $350 total on the wedding out of own pockets. I bought both rings of course, I didn't pay for them all at once either, but I got a feel for what type of ring my wife now would like to wear for the rest of our lives and I selected the ring that she now gladly wears daily. Her mom and other family members pitched in and purchased us a log cabin in the middle of the winter for a week in the TN mountains. We also took a photo of us with a frozen over waterfall in the background. It doesn't matter how many people you invite or how many actually get a chance to witness the two lives that are to become one in the sight of God and whoever else is there to see it. No matter what the theme is, the location or anything else, let the wedding be debt free, is my stance on it all.

I had a simple wedding. Wedding is a part of social acceptance. Bride and Bridegroom are important because they are getting married so get married in church or a temple invite few family friends and relatives and get done with it.

I have always wanted a really fantastic wedding! Something unique and above all special. After all what are fantasies and dreams for anyway! I don't usually open up about things like this since I think wishing about a great wedding is for girls. But here's the twist. Being a man, we do have our own brand of dreams and fantasies. My first wedding was quite simple. A quick visit to the Judge and that was it. Had some lunch and it was done. If I ever wanted to get married again and if I ever had the wealth.. I would like to have a skydiving wedding. That doesn't necessarily mean the priest has to dive with us. He can bless us on the plane. And away we go and plunge into the air. And target land on the reception area where our guests would be waiting. If the priest is up to it and is a good skydiver himself that would be cool. Well since that is quite an extreme action wedding and would cost a lot getting a plane and all that. My second choice would be a beach wedding or on a Yatch (rented that is since I don't have one). And everyone won't have to be wearing formal clothing just swimsuit would do fine. Lol.
