Do you think there is anything wrong with a very casual wedding?

By casual I mean very quick, simple garden ceremony, bride in a nice dress (not a wedding gown), groom in a suit, couple of witnesses and guests. Then for the reception hiring a hall with plenty of food such as cold meats, salads, finger foods & rolls, drinks, and music. No flowers, now wedding cake (but desserts served), no formalities, no seating arrangements, no fancy linens, you get the picture. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think we would regret it? It's the first wedding for both of us. sorry it was supposed to say "no" wedding cake.


  1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. If you love each other, and decide that this is the next step, then all of the formalities don't matter. After all, your not going to base your marriage on how beautiful your wedding was.
  2. I'm engaged as well as plan a wedding even more casual than yours (no hall, only 7 guests, a brunch instead of a party etc), we weren't married before either but I'm pretty certain neither of us will regret it. I'm sure there is a reason why you two decided to do a simple wedding, probably because you feel more comfortable this way and because it's more 'you' - and that's your answer too. A wedding is the most personal thing two people can celebrate, it should please no one but you two and frankly, when in 20 years I suddenly dream of a gigantic white gown and a thousand doves and roses - you can just do a great party to your porcelain wedding day. The fiance and I, plan to celebrate every marriage step differently (1 years, 7 years, 10 years, 25 yrs.. you get the idea), because we know that we'll change but we won't regret the actual wedding, because it will be and later was what was totally right for us at the time. Just do what feels right and don't worry :)
  3. If it's what the two of you want then there is certainly nothing you want, the wedding day has to be special, but that doesn't mean you have to spend loads or have a huge do, just a day to remember for the two of you. It sounds great.
  4. A wedding should be meaningful for the people who are being married: a ceremony and celebration that is in keeping with the way they live their lives. What you describe here is far more appropriate -- and hence in better taste, and also more traditional -- than many an over-blown put-on celebration full of false formality and made-up traditions, and unfamiliar "wedding etiquette". It sounds simple, dignified, and gracious. I wish I were invited. I hope you may be very happy!
  5. The only thing I'd miss was the wedding cake, but that's because I'm sugar-crazed! No, actually it sounds like you'll have a much better time due to the lack of stress the big ta-da wedding often causes. Our wedding was 33 people, and I adored the intimite feeling. Plus, it was a piece of cake to coordinate since there were so few people.
  6. I think you are going to save an absolute wad of cash and start your marriage on a good sound financial footing. What's wrong with that? When my wife and I got married, we didn't have much, (try next to nothing), and we had a couple of cold cut platters for light snacks. Our wedding cake was made by a cooking student, and cost very little. Our photographer was a buddy who was a photography student who did it as his gift to us, and the experience. Her dress was a close out model that was the display model. But! 32 years later, we still have very nice photos to look at, our memories of the day are of the love and joy of the day, and since all was paid for cash there were no lingering credit bills to worry or fight over. If you can afford all the extras, fine, have fun. But if not, it doesn't mean you can't have a ceremony and celebration that is relevant to you, and is none the less an enjoyable experience.

  7. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Weddings do not have to be huge formal events. I think what you have described sounds very nice.
  8. I've heard lots of friends say that they regret spending a huge amount of money and having 300 guests at their formal fancy weddings, but I've never heard anyone say that they regretted having a small, intimate, economical wedding. I think this would be a beautiful wedding to attend.
