Looking for my tribe... small, non-traditional, small budget weddings.

Posted in Planning 83

I feel so out of place in most of these forums. I'm looking for my tribe to discuss planning ideas. I'm not so concerned about typical wedding things or what the majority considers the right way to do things. I feel like you know your own friends and family and my what is acceptable in your circle....

I'm not so concerned about typical wedding things or what the majority considers the right way to do things. I feel like you know your own friends and family and my what is acceptable in your circle. This is a second marriage. We're in our 40s. We're planning something small, outdoors, with Pagan elements... Less than 50 guests... extremely small budget.


Anyone in the same mindset and want to share ideas? Feel free to say hello!

    I think that I鈥檓 going to DIY my bouquet instead of getting one of the 鈥減ackage鈥 bouquets offered. I really like this one-

    So the plan right now is to get married on a beach in Bermuda but if those plans don鈥檛 work out we鈥檒l be doing an intimate wedding near where we live in NY. COVID is stressing me out again but I think that it will be fine by July 鈥23. 馃馃徎

    So last night we got an email saying that we could change our 鈥23 cruise date to 鈥24 or request a refund. It was very vague and now I honestly don鈥檛 know what to think. So I guess Bermuda will be our Plan B now. 馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

    I hope it does calm down by your wedding. We鈥檙e scheduled for July 2023 and the cruise line is already offering us 50% off if we switch to 2024 so that doesn鈥檛 seem good. 馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

    So we鈥檙e back to the drawing board but we鈥檙e definitely not switching our date to 2024. Whatever we do it will be in 2023. 馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔
