My soon to be fiance and I were talking about what kind of wedding we would want to have. I guess more of what kind of wedding reception we would do. Obviously we would get married in the Catholic church, but what frustrates me is the amount of money that weddings cost. There are so many of, what seem to be, trivial things that go into a wedding: dress, flowers, reception venue, decorations, cake, food…
What are some unique ideas to have a cheaper, more intimate wedding. I’m not sure how big the wedding would be, we have not gotten that far yet. I know some people just go get dinner and then go to the court house, which is cute, but I want to be married in the church (have to).
We won’t have a lot of money, and I know my parents would help out, but I don’t feel right spending a lot of money. It is kind of against a lifestyle I already live.
Do we have to wear “fancy,” “traditional” wedding clothes?
Do we have to have catered food?
I know those issues are Catholic related, really, but does getting married in the church cost a lot of money?
