We bought our wedding cake at a bakery around the block from the restaurant we were having our wedding and did not tell them it was for a wedding. When they realized it was for a wedding a few days later after we ordered and put the deposit down, they called us back asking if we wanted all sorts of "finishing touches" for ridiculous amounts of $ extra. They did not sound happy we declined everything b/c we bought all the little cake decorations at Michaels. We agreed on a $15 delivery fee even though they originally said free delivery since it was 2-3 blocks from the restaurant. It was a beautiful "wedding" cake that we got for a "steal". Save where you can but just set a budget that you can work with.
I don't see how wanting an important day to be affordable gives anyone the right to be a pompous ass.
Douches that bring up divorce while someone is trying to plan a wedding are screaming for attention, immediately discount their posts. This is about YOU, not them.
It takes some soul searching to find out what is important to the two if you, the rest can be worked into the budget. If venue is important, splurge on that and cut back on other things. Prioritize your wants.
We are getting married at our home, after its finished being built. I happen to want small and intimate, casual and in the backdrop that we have spent to much time and attention. It's also a great way to bring everyone together. Later this year, were taking a trip to Argentina for dove hunting.
Above all, a wedding should not feel like the end of an accomplishment. Planning is stressful. A wedding is a celebration of a new beginning. So many couples find that post-wedding, they've lost focus on each other instead of having a party for everyone else.
This is about the two of you, and if others won't like it, please don't invite them!
