I'll be getting married to my wonderful fiancee on July 2012 during a two day pandemonium of a wedding.
When we first started talking wedding we both expressed our love for intimate family gatherings with a laid back feel, almost like the backyard barbecues we host on labour weekend at the cottage. But there was a catch: both of us are very social and since it definitly is inherited from our parents, they too had a loong list of friends and associates they NEEDED ( my granmom's voice!) to invite.
So, due to a guestlist that would not shrink for the world ( 405 ppl! ) and venues that could not accomodate those numbers, we've decided to have equal sized ceremony and reception events. After calculating the extra cost of having it on seperate days ( double the food, photog/vid, decor, dress, etc.) we realized that the price difference would be minimal compared to having a large banquet hall wedding with half the people there being complete strangers to both of us. *pheww* it took only 4 MONTHS to work that out! Now I only have 5 months to plan both days...I've been told to breathe plenty...so *inhaaale-exhaale*
