Everyone reading this might chuckle at my answer.
You see, I am not a particularly romantic person.
If I were to get married again, I’d be perfectly happy to once again do it at the local courthouse wearing a simple white dress I bought on sale that was not actually marketed as a wedding dress just like I did the first time.
This time around, I’d invite more people if I could. The wedding to my current spouse only had about 25 attendees due to the fact that I moved out of the United States before getting married, but in retrospect I wish more friends and relatives could have attended.
There is something wonderful about being surrounded by so much love on that day.
I wouldn’t have bridesmaids or pick a theme. I wouldn’t care one bit if guests showed up in formal attire or more comfortable but still dressy clothing like I’d wear.
Only two things would truly matter to me enough to splurge on them.
One: I’d hire a photographer and pick the priciest photo package I could afford. I do wish we had more photos of my first wedding.
Two: I would go all out on the food, especially the wedding cake!
My spouse and I were are poor as church mice when we got married, so we didn’t have a cake at all and ended up eating at an upscale buffet for our wedding dinner. The food was decent, but I would definitely spend the money on a fancy, traditional wedding cake and higher quality of food if I could redo that day.
I’d choose a tiered cake that had traditional white frosting and some lovely flowers on it because this is the only wedding thing I’m at all sentimental about.
The flavour of the cake itself could be something a little more daring like devil’s food, or maybe each layer could be a different flavour so every guest would have a choice between a few different options.
My friends and family run the gamut from vegan to something similar to the Atkins diet, so I’d offer several different entrees that would work whether you include a lot of vegetables or very few of them at all in your diet.
What would really matter is that we were together celebrating with delicious food and crisp, clear photos of such a special day.
