Love conquers tablecloths
A black-tie reception complete with diamond chandeliers, brass band, main course of filet mignon with truffle butter, and 300-plus guests may sound like your ideal happily-ever-after. And there’s no denying that sounds lovely. But before you write a big fat check to the venue for those fancier tablecloths (or you know, ask a stranger to do it for you), remind yourself of what your wedding is really about: love.
This event is about shared values and saying “I do” to spending the rest of your life with that person you choose to be your lover, best friend, and partner-in-crime for life. And that’s a beautiful thing -- whether your vows are exchanged at the country club with everything plus the swan ice sculpture, or at town hall with nothing but each other.
