Lauren, that's wonderful! Congratulations! 

My brother and SIL got married by a JOP in the gorgeous San Francisco City Hall, and held their reception and ceremony for the family and friends at Golden Gate Park. It was a pretty non-traditional ceremony, a potluck (!) with a catered cake and photographer. They had us all gather in a circle and hold on to a humongous purple ribbon. Each of us offered them wishes and blessings, and sometimes a token of what Jer/Beth meant to us. At the end, the baskets they'd passed around for this purpose were full, and the two of them literally tied the knot :)

I planned my wedding in 3 days and only spent $150. That included, the dress (a prom dress on sell hehe), the marriage certificate, the cake, flowers, etc. PM if you wanna chat details. I wish I was a wedding planner =P

Congratulations!!!  I wish you all the best!  I have a book on wedding etiquette that I can post if you'd like, but seriously?  You're too cool for that shit.  I hope you have the most fantastic wedding ever.

Cool!! :)  Keep us posted on the plans.  We had a low-key 40-guest wedding, and I did most of it - feel free to PM me for tips. :)

(I vote for June 17th too, but that's my anniversary, LOL....)

Hi Lauren, This day is  for life so make it one you both want to enjoy. No matter how small or large it may be. Remember to celebrate your love for each other no matter what.  Simple is a wonderful way to go. You have a life time for the other things. May God Bless you both on this wonderful time in your life.
