    My wedding was a DW, small (27 guests), not a formal reception. I loved my venue so I don't think I would change anything other then maybe a different dress. The one I chose is beautiful (and I haven't gotten our pro pics back yet) but was very uncomfortable. I would have also budgeted for video but I knew from the get go I would regret that.

    I would have gone with a destination wedding like we originally planned and skipped all of the drama caused by our families.

    Elope. It's what I wanted to begin with. Silly thing about weddings though, you have to factor in the grooms opinion. In my case, my groom wanted a big fat wedding.

    None of those. We had the right number of people. My only change would've been to keep the reception ending at 10 instead of 11. A lot of people left early and I was honestly beat by 10.

    I would have replaced some of our relatives with more of our friends but same size, locations, and price tag.

    I would have had the same wedding with only the tiniest of tweaks-- like not letting my sister come home with us before we went to visit my mom in the hospital.

    Definitely scaled the guest list back a bit

    Maaaaaybe not designed my own dress - it's been a pretty challenging journey. Im sure I will love the end result though.

    I am with Lauren... Only thing I would change is end the night earlier. I think everyone was beat but we had to keep the party going til 11 when the limo was coming. Other than that it was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing.

    At first I wanted to do the whole big wedding thing. But the more I thought about the ceremony, the more I hated it. FH and I aren't technically eloping, we'll have a small (about 30 ppl if everyone invited goes) DW and then a reception when we get back. So I feel like I'm getting the best of both worlds and have been much happier since we decided it.

    Very few things would I change at this point (but the wedding hasn't happened yet so maybe more). 1. I would have thought more about the dress....not need to feel bridal just feel more like me. 2. I wouldn't have felt so bad about not including people. SO many weddings have really limited wedding lists that being inclusive is awesome but probably not as much of a thing to worry about back we started making the guest list.

    But the size of a wedding we are having now feels pretty perfect roughly 225 people with roughly 36 babies and kiddos coming. Smiley smile

    Either elope, or we would've just said screw it and done things 100% the way we wanted to

    @January Wedding, that is pretty much what happened to us. I haven't regretted the decision since we paid the down payment for the ceremony on the catamaran. FH is happy, I'm happy, my parents are happy. Everyone else? Meh.

    I would change hardly anything about the wedding.

    We moved the Wednesday before our Saturday wedding, though--I would never do that again if I could help it.

    Having experienced it? I'd keep it just the way it was.

    I may still be experiencing the high, but I honestly wouldn't change anything. It was perfect.
