This reader planned and executed her wedding in a mere ten days. I so admire the simplicity and the sincerity! Here's what she had to say about it:
Congratulations on pulling together a meaningful and memorable wedding! (And thanks for reminding us all that weddings don't have to be crazy, stress-inducing productions.)I wore a white gauzy sundress that I bought at a hippie store, and let my bridesmaids pick out sundresses that they promised they would wear again. I even let them pick the color (they both got red dresses, and the groomsmen decided to follow suit and wear red ties).
The wedding was at a tiny outdoor chapel that is also the start of a hiking trail. We both love backpacking so it felt fitting. The only music that we played was a simple acoustic version of the traditional walk-down-the-isle music.
The ceremony was short and sweet, and we didn't do any speeches (we didn't want to bore anyone to death, and it didn't feel necessary).
Afterwords we had a potluck/brunch at the park. Everyone seemed to have a nice time chatting, and we got cool pictures of the groomsmen and groom played frisbee in their suits.
