I assume you're the one on the right?

J/k. :)

Congratulations. And remember that while the wedding is being planned your ideas will not be welcome even though your enthusiasm for her ideas must be ever present. You must show that you care and appreciate her work but you must not disagree with her.

Oh and wear a classic black tux and black bow tie. This is not the time to try your hand at fashion unless you are already a fashionista.

Congrats!

One word of advice. Elope. And spend the money on a nice vacation. We did and haven't regretted it one minute. Have been married for 11 years and counting...

I would think 90% of guys would agree with you. Elope, and then a few months later have a big party for some family and friends. Only one problem though - the bride

idioteque
06-30-2008, 11:29 AM
Eloping is a great idea. Especially if you come from a nosy family like mine who likes to control every aspect of every family event.

If she is down do it.

Also if you are on a limited budget and she agrees (most important thing) put more money into than honeymoon than the wedding itself. You can pull off a nice, romantic, rustic wedding with not much money at all without it being any semblance of trashy. Then use all that saved money and jet off to some beautiful island in the Caribbean or better yet, the Mediterranean for a week!

Gyron
06-30-2008, 11:39 AM
There's a show on CMT that has redneck weddings, but I don't remember the name of it. You definitely gotta watch that and get some money saving ideas off of it.

For example, I was laughing my *** off when I saw the episode where the bride who was a size 26 got a size 8 dress. It was classic seeing her husband try to close the back for her.....

That and when they went to the florist and they brought the beer cans for the florist to use as vases. After meeting with the florist, as a romantic gesture, the husband proceeds to pee her name in the street beside their car.

Oh and don't forget for the nice archway decorated with christmas lights and beer cans. She was a little short on beer cans so she had her husband shot gun almost a whole case of beer so she would have enough.....

It was a classic episode.

You gtta watch that show if you can find it. I think Tom Arnold is the host....

Pig Nash
06-30-2008, 12:27 PM
We talked about eloping, and she was up for it, but she's too big into her family for her to actually go through with it. We're trying to keep the wedding smallish, though. So none of you are invited! :lol:

We're not big beach people so we've talked about getting a cabin in the smoky mountains for a week as a honeymoon, that sounds good to me.

I tried to talk my brother into eloping to Vegas and using the money to contract the Flying Elvi to marry them while Skydiving. His wife wouldn't go for it. She said she couldn't wear the dress while skydiving.

No, just holding a ring on my knee. I'd hidden in her closet previously that day to make her try and find me. Later when I ran away, she thought I was gonna try and scare her but instead I asked her to marry me. It was really dorky.

Probably going to be about 200 people. We have big families. But the reception is just cake and snacks so it's not like we're paying for 200 dinners.

All in all it will have a lot of people but won't be a "big wedding"

That brings up an interesting point. (sorry if this in anyway derails the thread) Congrats Pig

With receptions soooo expensive now, I'm wondering if that is the better way to go. Save the money and just have a cake and snacks (no alcohol reception). Not sure of the exact $$$ savings, but if it were up to me. I would do that same thing and then consider having a "party" some time later for close friends and some family - although that could get really expensive also. Anyone have any thoughts. I wonder if the gifts are better for a really nice reception vs a less expensive reception.

Pig Nash
02-09-2010, 03:00 PM
No problem UB. This is exactly why we went this route.

We would have really liked a nice dance and dinner reception but the cost is outrageous. Most places big enough to hold an event like that require you to use their catering. We would have been happy to pay for the venue but when you have to pay 25 dollars a plate on top of that, it's just not in our price range anymore. If we could have made food ourselves or had our friends do it we could have but there really isn't a place that let's you do that. So we're just doing the church reception, we don't really care about the gifts.

obnoxiousmodesty
02-09-2010, 03:09 PM
Yeah, when Kat and I got married in October '08, we went for a formal dinner reception but only invited 50 people. It's just too expensive to do both these days. I hope the planning keeps going well, Piggy. It will be here before you know it.

Unclebuck
02-09-2010, 03:25 PM
It also bugs me that some people think it is their right to get completely drunk and act like idiots at wedding receptions. Sure at a dance and dinner reception have a few drinks, have some fun, but it isn't supposed to be a frat party.

UB i also agree that these things are so damn expensive!!! i dont know how working folk pay for this stuff. i have seen both types of reception, the cake and snacks and the 6 hr dinner with kegger!!! and oddly enough those that had the cake and snacks are much happier and not broke!!!!!!

If and when my girlfriend and i decide to get married, it will be the court house for us!!! then later have a small get together with family and friends. Get a keg, roast a hog have a fire!!!! simple simple simple!!!!

I wonder if the gifts are better for a really nice reception vs a less expensive reception.

My fiance and I decided to just keep our wedding small and serve the dinner. We have a little over a hundred people coming. It is a pain becuase so many people come out of the woodwork and expect to be invited. We also did not get an open bar, but we are having a early wedding. We decided to spend more on our honeymoon and keep the wedding simple and small.


It also bugs me that some people think it is their right to get completely drunk and act like idiots at wedding receptions. Sure at a dance and dinner reception have a few drinks, have some fun, but it isn't supposed to be a frat party.

Oh you are telling me. One of my groomsmen is talking about drinking a lot and I keep reminding him that we are not in college anymore and this is supposed to be a bit of a classier event. Like you said this is not one of the frat parties we went to when we were in college. I just do not understand the mentality a person has to decide it is ok to get blitzed at a wedding reception. That is what the bachelor/bacherolette(sp?) party is for.
