I love this comment from Mary Lorraine on this post. I had to give it the attention it deserves:
I especially love that last line: "Tacky? Nope. Just us."We're having an $8/person burger buffet at our partially-covered outdoor reception on a public golf course. I'm totally excited about it! Burgers are delicious! We'll have 2 or 3 vegetarians invited and will likely have some or something of the sort set aside for them. If anyone feels it's tacky, that's their right, but I'm personally deleting that word from my vocabulary for our wedding. I'm looking forward to displaying my tattoo, feeding each other wedding pecan pie, and carrying a wheat bouquet I'll make months in advance for about $8. Tacky? Nope. Just us.
That's exactly what we should strive for (in my opinion) when planning our weddings: Just us. And we should surround ourselves with guests who get that and appreciate it.
