    Default Wedding favors

    If you want someone to throw things at you as you leave the church. Get some
    nylon netting and cut it into squares. Fill with bird seed and then tie with
    a ribbon that matches your color scheme. Then people and untie them and toss
    at you when you leave. The church will thank you for no rice to clean up.
    And, the birds will love the seeds. And, the cost is not very much either.

    I like the 'if you want people to throw things at you' part too!

    When we got married, our church wouldn't let us have rice or bird seed. They
    tried the bird seed once and attracted a bunch of birds and all that goes with
    birds-poo-and no confetti for obvious reasons. We went with bubbles. The kids
    loved it and there was no mess to clean up.

    Okay, I know everyone is different and it may just be a function of rural
    verse an urban environment, but...

    I got married almost a year ago (the first day of Spring) and had exactly 12
    people at my ceremony: my DH's siblings with spouses, my twin sister and
    three very close family friends.

    We did a civil ceremony since that's what counts, not the chuch... I bought
    a formal gown, but it wasn't a wedding dress per se and my twin sister made
    a fur caplet since it was chilly that day; I had my hair and makeup done at
    Elizabeth Arden (not cheap!) and we were able to take everyone to a local
    five star restaurant for lunch (it was a Monday). We had a five course
    meal, custom wedding cake, menus and plenty of digital pictures taken by
    all.

    That's it... And it was awesome and although it was small, it was extremely
    classy and I had ONLY the people I wanted there, not those I felt I needed
    to invite just "because".

    On another note, DH and I just participated in a a wedding of one of his
    co-workers which turned out to be also very classy and nicely done. This
    was a more religious ceremony, with a church community but there was a live
    band that played during the ceremony and the bride actually sang a song to
    her groom which was extremely beautiful. The church was decorated nicely
    but not overdone and the reception was at a community center at noon...
    There was a chocolait fountain (big hit!) and a gingerale punch fountain for
    refreshments. No tables, just chairs in this community room and they only
    had cake.

    But it was still great -- their first wedding and in an expensive area of
    the country (northern virginia) so it was nice that they could realize what
    they could afford and the community they invited was accepting of the fact
    that it was dry and cake only....

    You have to decide what's important. Personally, the whole toss the garter,
    first dance, etc... Not important to me. I wanted a nice dinner with the
    ones I love and I'm very happy with the results.

    In any event, I hope this didn't turn out to be a rant. I have attended too
    many weddings that were overdone and tacky because the bride thought she had
    to do it all when in fact, you don't... You truly really don't.

    I agree with you. Thanks for the insight. Glad to know that others feel the
    same way too. I wish I could have that small of a wedding, but I don't think
    hubby would agree. I think what we have planned will work fine. It is a relief
    to hear that I am not alone in my small weddingness.

    Thank you again!

    We also did the bird seed. We had an outdoor wedding to save money, was very cheap, but very fun

    Cheap or extravagant as long as you exchange vows with the person you love the most the place will not matter most.
