Thanks Mason Jar Bride

For sharing your "I'm saying no to list" Here's mine!

I am saying NO to:

1. Chivari Chairs- beautiful yes, expensive yes, practical yes, stuffy yes
2. Favors- I've said it before, I'll say it again- I'm feeding you, giving you free entertainment, and getting you drunk- I don't need to give you a "token" for coming. Period.
3. Fondant- I worked in a bakery (the one where our cake is from) for 2 1/2 years... I know how nasty it taste... I will take not perfect, unsmooth cream cheese frosting anyday!
4. Letterpress.
5. Seating Charts, escort cards- sit with who you want- I don't care!
6. An open bar- Jeremy's friends drink scotch... good for them... they can bring a flask.... everyone else can enjoy beer and wine.
7. Pricey florals- it's called DIY biotch.... and it's only about $300.
8. Overpriced bridesmaids dresses- My girls are rocking chocolate brown cocktail dresses from for $32
9. "Bridal shoes" I'm wearing cute brown sandals that I already own.
10. Matchy, matchy bridesmaid shoes- just because they will show- who cares.
11. Stuffy family portraits following the wedding.
12. Over the top centerpieces... really does anyone ever remember centerpieces? (before you were engaged.... i mean, i remember the 2 since I've been engaged, but I think that's only because I'm engaged)
13. Traditional round tables- I am so enthused about my super duper long rectangles!
14. A giant bouquet.
15. Tux's - our guys will look awesome in their Geoffry Beene suits that they get to KEEP!
16. A huge wedding cake... were having a tiny 2 tier cake, and pies, and cupcakes :-) YUM!
That's all for now.....
