Who knew choosing a save-the-date would be so difficult!?! We are lucky enough to be having our stationary custom designed by my bff from 7th grade. I am just so thrilled with how everything is turning out!! A million "thank you"s will never be enough to express our gratitude.
Now, in other wedding-related areas I'm kinda all over the place. I am still trying to fight my very strong urge to elope. Its not that I want to deprive my family of sharing this occasion with us.... I just want it to be intimate. I'd rather have it be 50 of our closest friends and family than 100 people who we aren't really close to. I don't want to deal with all the logistics of planning a party for 100 either. I want our wedding to be simple and relaxed and comfortable. We've been talking about having a closed ceremony for family and close friends only and then having an open reception for the rest of the guests. Is that weird though? Is it almost rude...?
I'm also worried that maybe were overstepping our bounds by asking to use grandpas house for the entire wedding. I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable by filling their personal space with 100 people, most of whom they don't know.....
How about we have a small ceremony and then everyone can just go out to dinner. Simple. No DJ. No dancing. No big fuss. No rental equipment. Just us and 50 or so of the people we love and cherish. Its not that I don't want the dream wedding with all the amazing decor and the bouquet toss and the seating chart and cake cutting..... I just don't want to compromise our wishes or make anyone uncomfortable with our decisions.
I guess we have a lot to think about.
The future Mrs. Carey.
