We had already had our elopement last year, so we wanted this post-elopement party to be a simple but nerdy event to celebrate with some of our friends and family.
I see so much talk online about “Do I need a wedding party?” Or “Are bridesmaids necessary?” And then there’s “What if my wedding party is uneven?” I’m here to say you can skip ALL THESE QUESTIONS, by having no attendants at all. Here are four reasons why we decided to have no wedding party.
It’s not too long now until the love of my life and I get married and promise to tolerate one another until one of us dies, and I have reached the conclusion that I need to stop reading wedding clickbait. They’re making anything other than a courthouse wedding seem ill-advised. You know that I wasn’t ready for?
“What’s your wedding hashtag going to be?”
We decided to do an old school Champagne and Cake reception immediately following the wedding in the same space, the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel. The chapel is a decorated, NY-style loft space and you simply show up. We hired musicians on our own as live music was not included. The wedding and reception was ninety minutes total at 3:00pm. Only twenty-six people were in attendance.
Susan and Horacio had a sweet, sunny, and small Santa Barbara courthouse wedding. Horacio’s suit was made by a tailor in Thailand and Susan’s flowing dress was from lulus.com. But we’ve got the whole story straight from the couple! Let’s hear about their fab, tiny wedding from them…
Alisha and Lucas wanted to get married on Leap Day just five weeks before booking their wedding planners, Cristen & Co.. It was all going to go down at the chic Warehouse XI in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Their closest friends and families flew in from all over to celebrate. Do not miss the waffle cake!
