My mother kept pushing for a religious officiant, but it’s just not me, so we are opting out of that. She also kept pushing for the big white ballgown... which is DEFINITELY not me! I humored her and tried several on for her, but ultimately got the dress that suits me and my personality. Like you, we also will not be doing any sort of formal toasts, spotlight dances or bouquet/garter tosses- I’ve never liked any of these trends at weddings I’ve attended and couldn’t wait to do away with them at ours.
No tosses simply because it is just our immediate family and everyone is married except for my FH younger cousins. No toasts/speeches don't think they are necessary. And I'm on the fence about even wearing a garter because I'm not even sure if he will take it off.
Also skipping both tosses, maybe we'll do speeches (the option will be there if people want to say a few words), and we're just doing first dance. We're not even doing large group dancing or party type dancing because that's not the kind of people we are, 😂 also we're only inviting about 25 guests so it'll feel more like a nice family dinner party.
We aren't doing the tosses, doing a first look/both getting ready at the same venue...actually doing our intro's during the cocktail hour so that we can flow into dinner instead of hustling everyone and then announcing lol....mostly because I want some of that food haha.
For starters, I don't have a white dress. We're decided not to do the tosses and parent dances and there's no ring bearer or flower girl. We're skipping registries and unity ceremony. I'm also not doing the whole something old, new, borrowed and blue.

This sounds just like us! I forgot that people have ringbearers and flower girls LOL We won’t be having either of those, or kids at our wedding period. No registry or unity ceremony either. I’m sure I will do the something old, new, borrowed and blue though, because I am a superstitious nut 😆
