    I would like my guests to have a positive experience at my church and then enjoy our reception location with good food.

    For me it is definitely location (I've wanted to get married there since I was 10 and the majority of guests are staying on property), great food from cocktail hour to late night popcorn bar, great music that invites people to dance.

    The location was the biggest thing for us, I knew I wanted it in Vegas- no question. The venue itself has a beautiful desert mountain backdrop that glows red as the sun sets (like the time of our ceremony) and is very close to the strip, but far enough away to not be super expensive. The rest doesn't really matter, honestly. As long as people are satisfied with the food and the music doesn't suck, we're good. I'm honesty surprised by the amount of people who mention dancing at weddings (not just this post, but in general).


    If I could, I wouldn't even have a dance floor and everyone would just mingle- that would be a perfect atmosphere for us, especially since it's mostly family invited. But since "dancing" is the norm, there's a dance floor. I, personally, won't touch that area with a 10ft pole, even if you paid me. That is an awful wedding expectation to me, I realize that I'm of course in the minority and will still provide accommodation for guests to take part, it's just... weird to me Smiley xd

    1. The ceremony-since this is the whole point of the day.

    2. The food/drinks-We really want our guests to be treated well and enjoy themselves.

    3. The decor-I've poured hours and hours into making all of the decor elements and such and can't wait to see it all finally come together.

    Definitely the location - trying to do minimal decorations so we are looking into places that do not require a lot

    Food & Drink are big- especially since I've basically always been in the foodservice industry, my friends expect great things haha

    We worked really hard to keep it small and we are hoping that it is a good time for everyone invited and that they can feel how special they are to us.

    The music and venue were my absolute priorities. After that I just wanted to make sure my guests would be happy.

    Food/Booze, Music, Convenience.


    We wanted to have it somewhere people could just do everything in one spot and not have to rent a car, or coordinate transportation.

    The atmosphere and food, I can't think of a third. Maybe my dress Smiley smile
    We are getting married in a national park surrounded by redwoods so we want things to feel simple and peaceful and natural. And dinner will be at a local family run Italian restaurant that I can only hope my Sicilian Mother will approve of.
