1. When it is humid, does your hair go flat or frizz up?

2. Coke or Pepsi?

3. What color shoes would you wear with a little black dress to a wedding? (I have an idea of what I am going to wear but looking for more suggestions)

For many people a wedding is a once in a lifetime event so to take time planning for the big day is as big of a deal as planning for the birth of a first baby, JMO. My brother got married twice, His second was certainly more low key than his first b/c they had both been married before. I've heard some people describe their second weddings as fancier b/c they include things in it that they didn't do or couldn't do in the first. It really comes down to individual differences, I don't think your idea of traditional is mine either.

We eloped. That IS traditional in my family as my parents and both set of my grandparents eloped too.

It was a once in a lifetime event for me too, I just knew exactly what dh and I wanted, it didn't take long to plan because we knew where we wanted the focus to be, for us.  We had both been in and attend many weddings over the years, lol.   I think some people want more details, more things as you call them than others want in their weddings.

Considering what I've read in the past on this board about your views on marriage, I'm sure there's very little that we're likely to agree on.

I dunno ... When I said "traditional" I wasn't really using *my* definition, but more of an American societal one.  Church wedding (Roman Catholic church at that!), bridesmaids, groomsmen, church wedding, a gift hostess, a receiving line, a reception, seeing the bride and groom off in their vehicle,   yada yada yada.   It's wasn't huge or fancy, but it was pretty traditional.

My second? Nah, not traditional.

 

But even with my first, the important thing was 1) the marriage and 2) sharing it with our families and friends. Everything else was just fluff.

DD2 is going to be a bridesmade in her college room mates wedding this weekend.  The bride sent all of them a picture of the kind of style and color she wanted for them and the were free to pick out any thing that would fit that criteria.  Not a bridezilla at all there.
