As more and more of my friends/Facebook acquaintances get married, the happier I am that Nate and I had the smallest, most inexpensive wedding we could get away with.

I mean, bridal showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, bridesmaids, groomsmen, 100 guests, catering…it all sounds a) way too expensive and b) way too stressful to be worth it.

Nate and I are super introverts who don’t like being around a lot of people. We also didn’t want to go into debt just to get married. I see some people booking these lavish venues and buying ridiculously expensive (or expensive-looking, at least) wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses and having a wedding attendance of 50+ people. And I get it, some people really want that.

But if you save your money and save all that stress, don’t you think you’re in a better place starting off your marriage than if you’re starting it off with a huge expense and an enormous amount of stress?

Just sayin’.

What sayest thou? Speak!
