Did you go to the courthouse to get married?

If you did....what is your dream wedding? Or have you gotten over it and feel like its never gonna happen?

  • I did with my first marriage. This time around, we are getting married at the beach at sunset. It will be a semi small affair, like 40 people. It will be classy & tasteful & simple.

  • yes, got married while hubby was home on leave...I think I have gotten over the fact that i will never have my dream wedding. I always wanted to big dress and a beautiful outdoor wedding in the spring but now that we have been married for 7 years it just doesnt really matter anymore.. i would rather go on a nice family vacation than spend the money on a wedding now.

  • No.. Even though I wish we had.. LOL

    My dream wedding was a quick and easy JP/Courthouse wedding.

    Instead..I got.. a 3 day long combo Hindu/Sikh wedding with all the bells & whistles.. The full traditional shebang.

  • Yes..the only thing I ever wanted was to rock down the aisle to 'back in black'.

  • We got married in a Catholic Church if I had to do it over again I would pick a summer wedding on the beach with only a handful of relatives and a few of my closest friends!

  • yep...did not want the whole over the top wedding because getting married should not require an elaborant was private and sincere. (and nothing like my first wedding where my uncle got trashed and started to attack everyone because my bio-father wasn't invited)

  • Ive been married twice. My first wedding was thrown together quickly but was beautiful, too bad the guy did a personality flip right after I said "I do". I got married the second time in the courthouse. I would love to do a vowl renewal eventually. It would probably be something country themed.

  • Yes I did. I know my dream wedding is never gonna happen. I wanted my wedding dress made. I still have the pattern. It was to be a outdoor garden wedding, simple with the location being the best decoration. :) I got concrete walkways and a water-fountain instead. :(

  • We were supposed to have a large church wedding, but our dd had other plans on arriving early. :) We were married by a J/P and we are just fine with that. I only wanted to marry my dh, didn't care where.

  • We got married at the courthouse first because my husband was being transfered out of the country and we needed to get the paperwork underway. We had a garden wedding and brunch reception about a month later. The courthouse was kind of nice because it was just the two of us, but the wedding-wedding was good, too. I'm glad I got both.
