Keeping it simple
One of the conditions I told my husband when we decided to get married to keep it to only a few friends and family members, and that we would only have guests of less than 50 tops. I know that this was somewhat of a challenge for him given his high profile status in his career. But I would not want to have people I hardly even know in my own wedding.
I also made sure that I can remain looking elegant without having to feel too uncomfortable with my dress. There were times in the past when my friends would complain about how heavy their dresses were and how difficult it is to go from one place to another in them. This was why I got a satin sleeve wedding dress which was of the perfect length and style that would ensure I would not experience the same thing as that of my friends. Keeping things simple is what I prefer.
