I had a backyard wedding with a spitroast, and I still wore a dress!  Just a deb dress, nothing too fancy.

We had a small casual wedding too. celebrant at our local Botanical gardens by the lake.
Then a backyard reception (bbq/party) that FIL put on for us.
Though he did get us a limo ride into the city where we stayed at a fancy city hotel.
But thats all we both wanted as we just moved into our house but it was a perfect size.
I just wanted some beautiful photos which we got.  Long creamish white dress, not to far of PP's photo shown.

I bought a suit that was lacy-ish. - hard to explain

A quick search shows this -

mine was a full suit (jacket and skirt) in cream. My bridesmaid happened to own something like the photo also as a full suit that she wore.

I wore a 50s style pleated skirt and blouse, with a pillbox hat.  I was going for a "post-war registry office bride" kind of look  original.gif

I had a court house marriage with 4 family members and then lunch at a restaurant.

I wore a black skirt, black singlet and a lacy black shrug/jacket thing with red roses on it. That was symbolic because I was wearing a shirt with red roses when we first met.

I had DS 8 days after we married so dressing up was not the most realistic thing.

My bestie wore a red velvet dress and a coat over the top (Vinnies) on her way into the courthouse (it was snowing!) I was a witness and wore a 3 piece suit (ladies) as it was the smartest thing I had.


Another friend wore a $25 sundress and bare feet (it was obviously not snowing at her picnic wedding) the groom wore shorts and a white shirt.

I am not married. But IF I DO.... it will be Princess Leia Ice Planet of Hoth all the way baby!

I had a backyard wedding.

The dress was designed by me and made up by a dressmaker. I was lucky because the dressmaker worked at lincaft in the bridal section so I got all my material at a discount.

It cost $250 in 1995.

Before digital cameras so I don't have an online pic.

My DH & I eloped and got married in Fiji.

We got married on the beach (near our hotel) at sunset. Dh wore black pants and a light pink shirt with a fijian shell necklace and no shoes. Me I wore a pink plain deb dress with fijian shell necklace and no shoes. Oh and I had fresh white frangerpani flowers in my hair that I picked off the tree myself a few hours before the wedding.

The reception was at the resturant at our hotel. Nothing fancy, just a nice dinner, lots of drink and many congratualtions from strangers  original.gif

Everything including a week of honeymoon in Fiji cost me just under $10K and the rest of our wedding savings DH & I put towards our mortgage, the best thing we done  biggrin.gif

DH and I got married at the registry office in Melbourne in front of 13 close family members and friends. We then had a casual dinner at a restaurant. I wore a Jenny Bannister evening dress in a champagne colour with gold strappy shoes and a white feather stole. I felt like I had stepped out of the oscars in the forties.

I had a proper wedding dresss, despite my intentions when setting out to have a more casual one.  Needless to say I fell in love with it Tounge1.gif
We had a very small wedding/reception.

Such lovely wedding stories here!

We married in the Melbourne Mint Building, small gathering.


Bought my champagne coloured dress in a bridal store but, much to the sales ladies' shock, picked a bridesmaids dress...

DH and I eloped to Gretna Green, Scotland and were married on St Valentines Day.  Our witnesses were 2 hotel guests we'd met 24 hours earlier. I wore a gold colored 1950's vintage cocktail dress with spagetti straps and full skirt  (a la Liz Taylor) with matching gold stilleto shoes.
My bouquet was made of heather, white and red roses by a local florist.  Our celtic wedding rings were custom made by a Scottish jeweller (we didn't bother with the engagement ring). A Scottish bagpipe led the procession (which I found slightly embarrassing). All in all, the day cost us approx. $7,000.  We only told everyone when we got back.

It was the happiest day of my life apart from the birth of my DDs.

I wore a Grecian-style golden dress, no shoes, and a ring of silk flowers in my hair. We had some family and friends on the beach at sunset, for the ceremony, and a bbq at our house, after. with my mom skyping in at 4am local time for the cake cutting original.gif.
