We were really focused on making our wedding day about us as opposed to getting wrapped up in it being our ‘wedding day’. We made sure to add personal details – a friend made two types of home brew beers with our pictures as the stickers, we had a cousin conduct the ceremony, and we let the location not be overwhelmed by too much design and elaborate decoration. I bought a lot of the decorations from Etsy, handmade some things myself and had potted plants as opposed to cut flowers. We also had a flashmob dance routine that everyone knew except my husband – so fun!! As a result, we had subtle details that made it undeniably our wedding, without feeling forced. The day seemed very natural and had a great flow as opposed to a set regimented schedule of events.
