Re: Modest or Lavish Wedding

I didn't really have 'a wedding' I got married by special licence in my lunch hour as did my Husband.
No one knew about it only the two witnesses and a colleague of my husband who turned up with a bottle of champagne and a card.

Re: Modest or Lavish Wedding

To me big lavish weddings are a waste of money. Iíd rather have a better house than show off and spend the money on OPís.

In my day, you didnít have the evening do for the Ďplate lickersí who are probably miffed at not being invited to the day meal.

I remember at my wedding in 1971 the flowers were only £6 for my, my two sisters bouquets and lots of buttonholes. They were done by a proper florist too.

I think my reception was £130 or thereabouts, there were no discos or bands at weddings then.

My wedding dress l bought in the sale at Selfidges for £38. I still have it my loft in the box it came in.
I remember once when l had been married for a few years, l got the dress out of the loft, put it on, veil and all and walked down to the dinner table where my family were seated. We laughed so much!

Alas, after 30 years the fairytale had ended.

Re: Modest or Lavish Wedding

My wedding was very quiet, just us and the witnesses. I enjoyed my daughter's wedding though.I was teaching linedance then. She was married in white and then we went onto a club where we'd arranged a really good linedance band. It was a hell of a knees up with all the linedancers. I'll never forget the sight of my daughter and her bridesmaid flinging the bottom of their long dresses over their shoulders to see them both wearing fringed white cowboy boots, they were all set for the dancing. Lots of fellas in kilts linedancing too. How I wish mobile phone cameras had been around then.
The whole thing cost around £500, the band being the most expensive thing.
