I love weddings. I love planning. I don't love planning my own wedding.
Don't get me wrong, I want it to be magical and memorable and sweet. But I want more than just ONE DAY of magic, memories and sweetness...We want an amazing life together. We want an amazing honeymoon, and a cute little house of our very own. We want a lifetime of celebrations, not just one day.
So, the point of all of this rambling is to tell you all that we have decided to have a DESSERT ONLY reception. Short. Sweet (sweet...get it?!). Happy. Doing a dessert only reception will allow us to invite more people and focus on the areas of the reception we were most excited about...like my lemonade stand and amazing dessert buffet.
Then maybe we will have a VERY intimate dinner for our family and close friends following the reception. We're still trying to figure it out.
I am just think it's absolutely ridiculous that I have to shell out THOUSANDS of dollars to celebrate my marriage with people. It's not about a 6 hour long reception with a stocked bar and a five course meal! My grandparents didn't have a wedding like that! I just want simple and happy. I don't want to organize this grand event and then be broke. Lets save some time and money and hassle and keep it simple and to the point. I'm getting married for LIFE, not for a day.
So...... who's going to help me bake? :)
The future Mrs. Carey.
