Congrats dismantled and also Mr. Brau on the engagement....

All this talk about prices makes me think of the sex and the city episode where Charlotte gets married....she is at the back of the church ready to walk down the aisle and is having VERY last minute doubts (for ahem, reasons) and Carrie lies to her to make her feel better and says "She's 34, single, and was standing there in a $14,000 dress...she was getting married"

Can you even imagine that kind of money on a dress?! Yeah I'm sure it's gorgeous but....

When my brother got married, it was a pretty small, low-key affiar, but my sister-in-law still was freaking out because when the flowers arrived they weren't exactly what she wanted and the photographer didn't do things exactly right.

If I ever get married I plan to do it in a church, but no fancy-schmancy reception. It's going to be a barbecue in the park or something like that. And I would totally consider a used wedding dress. I've seen some gorgeous ones in second-hand shops.

I personally like weddings. I had the traditional catholic wedding too. But it was so much fun, and I like to believe that the people who told me they had a great time were being truthful. What's so wrong about them? I'm catholic, I wanted to marry my husband in a church in front of my family and friends. Afterwards, we had a great reception with an awesome DJ and an open bar. Sure, some things may have been expensive, but certainly not over the top.

I agree too... bridal showers can be very boring. Mine started off traditional until we realized that there was a karaoke club downstairs. We all ended up down there and closed the place down (it was on a thursday night). I remember it (at least most of it) fondly.

My ideal wedding:

Married outside on top of a beautiful rolling hill surrounded by the fall colors in the trees. With a simple wedding dress and my sister standing as my matron of honor. After the wedding, I want an outdoor reception with BBQ. I even think having a reception in my parents backyard would be nice.

Now as far as the groom ...

I used to want a big church wedding in the Catholic church, but my views about the church have changed quite a bit that being married in the church would contradict my feelings about it. Regarding the reception, I want to be able to enjoy my wedding day and be able to eat my food without having be pulled in different directions to meet people that I may not know. If I do get married, there WILL have to be time for me to eat and for me to enjoy the meal otherwise there will be a massive bitch in a gown!

My cousin had a beautiful outside garden wedding on the campus of University of VA this summer. It was perfect. His reception however was pricey and was at a local vineyard.

I loved my wedding. I had a fairytale dress and my bridesmaids wore pink. This was at a time when people were going toward the strange colors so my pink and white colors were something different. The only thing I didnt like was my hair.

I hated my hair too. I had a practice one a few weeks before the wedding, and then the day of, I wasn't really paying attention and the hairstylist did a completely different style than I had anticipated. I had grown my hair out to just above my waist, it was supposed to be all curls etc... it was all pinned up! It looked ok, just not what I envisioned.

I think I'm going to do my own hair. I always laugh when I see friends and how excessive their hair is done for their wedding....it doesn't even LOOK like them! My wedding will be about me and should reflect my personality, and I've never spent more than 5 minutes messing with my hair, so as long as it looks pretty, there will be no reason to fuss.

I did my own hair. Tried having the bridesamaids do it but I got really mad because they werent listening to me
I just wanted it pulled back into my little tiara thing and they kept trying to make it look poofy.
When youve got 15 minutes to blastoff and your hair looks like an accident in an 80's hair salon your patience is TESTED

If and when my boyfriend and I get married, we are going to the court house to seal the deal, and then will take all of our loved ones out to a great fun dinner or rent a condo with our families or something for the weekend.

I'm not one for following tradition.
That's how my wedding was. Just a short ceremony at the registry office with our immediate families followed by a meal out (and Sam and I went to the cinema to see Shrek 2 in our wedding clothes ). Then we had a barbeque with friends and extended family the following Saturday.

Rachel Griffiths the actor said it best before her wedding: "Women over 30 should not wear matching dresses"

As for Aussie hen nights, there should a male stripper (single or plural).
It's the law!

I still think the prettiest wedding dress I've ever seen is Grace Kelly's.

I don't want the wedding and it ain't happening anyway, but I'd love to wear a dress like that just once.

The only wedding dress I've ever worn was my Mom's, I snuck in her hope chest and tried it on when I was about 14

The chicken dance and the electric slide!

I agree! I loved them when I was younger but now I think they are stereotypical and corny. Even the old cake in the face routine that was so original at my cousin's wedding when I was a kid has become expected and cliche'.

I have also noticed from newspaper photos, at least in my area, that the grooms are getting increasingly uglier and older looking. Maybe all the young and/or hot looking guys around here refuse to have a big wedding, or even get married at all.

We are all waiting for your picture so we can be as equally judgemental as you on YOUR looks.

I don't think I will ever get married, the idea that someone would willingly and openly want to state that he'd want to spend the rest of his life with me boggles my mind. If I ever do though, I definetly don't want to deal with the hassle of a traditional wedding....The only thing that I'd be super concerned about it getting a great photographer, no matter where the wedding is going to be.
