I think a wedding like this would be ideal for me. Only the closest family and friends. Beautiful and lush surroundings. Not the most luxurious but it would be special to me (us) which is the important part.
Hoping I meet a girl who doesn't have a billion and one must have and do things for her wedding day...
my wife and I (wife as of like 2.5 months) wanted the same, but you'd be really surprised how big things can get. It's the "we def. need to invite my three friends from college and two from high school, but NO more ... wait, that means with +1's that's 10 people, fuck".
I suppose ours was luxurious, but we didn't want a BBQ type thing or buffet, so we did a 4 or 5 course menu that ended up being really great. I picked out some fancy wine pairings, because I love wine, and we had a string quartet for cocktail hour and a jazz band for the rest (a bunch of friends I knew from Juilliard). And people really enjoyed it all. There were the snobs that appreciated good food and good wine, and there were those that really appreciated good music to dance to. In the end people were so happy, and we couldn't ask for more than happy guests.
