    Hey you all.
    I've had dreams about my wedding, since a little girl, with all the small details. The little me dreamed about a fancy wedding, on a fancy church and a great reception after it. The teenager me dreamed about the rustic but fancy outdoors wedding, on a nice country hotel. At that point, a religious wedding was completely out of question.
    Now I've found out that the now-days "me", the one who got engaged two months ago, just want to marry the man she loves. It's quite weird, but I'm doing everything different of all the plans I had during my whole life.
    I decided to get married during the winter (no outdoor wedding!), so this could save us some money and it could still be stunning. My future parents in law suggested us to get married at the church, on the village h2b grew up... and the idea of that made me smile and I'm completely excited about it...
    I found out that I can change basically everything. Whatever is comfortable for both of us, whatever we can afford... and these things don't make me feel bad at all... I just keep thinking that I'm gonna marry him, and this is really enough. I could do it anywhere, without any guests, just he and me.

    Does anyone else feel like that?

    Hi CamilaL,

    I think that sounds perfect......

    Its yours and H2B's day and if your plans change then so be it :-) as long as you are happy that's the main thing!

    All of my life I have been adamant that I would never marry, I would never meet 'The one' & I truly believed there was no such thing....

    In a short 6 months, I have met the most amazing man, been swept of my feet, got engaged and I am planning our wedding!!

    Anything can happen and I think it takes us all by surprise

    You go for it lovely and do what makes you and H2B happy xx

    When you were younger, it was all dreams, now it is reality. You've come to the stage of actually doing it and realised most importantly that you want to marry your man, but you are happy to do this cutting costs. Your wedding day will still be special to you as it is what you have chosen at the time.

    Everything does change! I'd say the same about name choices, I'd come up for all sorts for my babies when a child, doesn't mean I'd use them now and once upon a time my mum laughed when I was 6 and said I wanted to become an interior designer lol... Life changes things x

    I'm exactly the same, when I was little I dreamed of a big church wedding but now I'm having everything at a hotel. Childhood dreams don't take into account life, money location and practicality. My dream wedding is now the wedding I'm having :) x

    When you are younger you forget about money and think you will just miraculously fall into a good job with great pay and be able to afford everything and anything.. and have a big family.. Growing up changes things and you have different priorities. I used to want the whole fairytale wedding and to be honest, it won't be far off... it IS a fairytale wedding to us, because it is OUR wedding and we are getting married and doing things OUR way. It doesn't matter how much money you spend on it, or where it is, or any of those things... x

    I'm exactly the same! I always dreamed of a huge church wedding with a big white princess dress and a big manor house or something like it. Now I am getting married in our town hall and a small venue by a lake near my mums house. Before we booked the wedding me and H2B were seriously considering just going to a registry office and getting married, just because we wanted to be married to each other and didn't want the big wedding and to my surprise I was completely happy with that. I guess when we're young we don't really think it throught properly and probably base it on what we see on TV and films, we grow up and our minds change. I am so happy and excited and our wedding is going to be exactly how we want it, although completely different to how little Emma wanted it :)

    Hey, yes our wedding is going to different from what I thought it would be, but in a good way!!
    I've came to realise the value of things with wedding planning and how all those little extras really add up.....but are they really relevant to marrying the one you love? It's about compromise in making your day special. It's not really about entertaining all the guests and impressing them with the best of the best!
    Everything is working out perfectly for our wedding and I've realised I don't want it to be formal or fancy or chic, because that actually isn't us as a couple anyway!!

    I had no idea I would be this open to change anything we need. I thought I would be a crazy bride, with defined wishes. It has been soooo easy and peaceful :)

    I am exactly the opposite. I never wanted to get married, I just didn't see the point and couldn't ever imagine promising my entire life to another person, but since I met Marc, that's completely turned upside down. I can't imagine NOT promising my entire life to him!! So with no dreams of how I would like this to happen we explore every option.

    I wasn't particularly bothered about a church wedding because OH is not particularly religious,but as I am, he said that is what we should have. My dress is big and pink and ruffley, we are inviting all our extended family, I am having 5 bridesmaids. As I said, we explored all options, gretna, destination wedding, hotels, manor houses and what was important for us we prioritised. On our budget, to invite our massive extended families, we have had to make sacrifices and do an incredible amount of DIY, but we would love them all to be there to celebrate what feels to us like a complete miracle!!!

    Things do change and much depends on circumstances too. Have to admit though that the big main things about our wedding were as I'd dreamed of. They are the important things though but some things were different depending on what we could afford and also my ideas on some bits changed as I'm older.

    Yes, I had the same conversation with my husband. When I was younger I wanted to be married by a certain age, children by a certain age, church wedding etc. As I got older, I decided I wasn't interested in a church wedding (we got married at a country house), I still don't want children yet etc. I think as a child I read lots of fairytale books. I still got my prince charming though lol

    I always wanted to get married outside, in the middle of a field with fake snow (or real if possible) everywhere. Then a marquee on the evening with fireworks, glittery dance floor the lot. Wanted very extravagant and big. And as much as I'd still love a lot of that, it's not as important to me now, I just want to marry the man of my dreams :) We are having an indoor wedding, the cost of making it so we could marry in the field I wanted to get married in was just too much. We aren't having a marquee, again due to cost. But we are having family and friends there and our 2 lovely boys. I think we all have dreams but those dreams become over shadowed by pure love for our H2B's
