- I want to walk down the aisle alone. Not to close to with father, but he can still stand next to my mother and give me away once i reach the end of the aisle. I just dont want to walk with my arm locked with someone elses.
- Unfortunately no church wedding. Reception will be in same room as wedding. Instead of guests just sitting in chairs, they'll be seated at beautifully decorated tables.
- No Stacy Adams. Hopefully the groom will want to rock some converse or something with his tux.
- No bowties, just ties.
- Khaki, brown, or beige suit rather than black/grey.
- The veil won't cover my face.
- No flower girls, just a ring bearer. Rose petals already layed out on aisle.
- I'm debating if I'll have bridesmaids.
- The groom can do best man if he wants, but I'm not doing Maid of Honor. Not gonna throw a load of responsibility on someone else. Its my day.
- I want my best friend boys apart of the groomsmen, and the groom can tell me which of his friend girls he wants as bridesmaids.
- No wedding shower, just a Bachelorette Party.
- Bachelor and Bachelorette party in same city (Vegas for example).
- 2-5 Celloists play as guests enter.
- No limo, but 3 Black SUVs (Suburbans, Escalades, or Navigators). One bride/parents. One for groom/groomsmen. One for bridesmaids (if i have them).
- Wedding/reception from 2pm-5pm.
- No alcohol except for champagne or wine ( like Moet & Chandon, Pink Moscato, or Chardonnay)
- Bridesmaids/Groomsmen will pay for their own outfits and all be matching.
- Not rich. Hoping for $5k from his parents, $5k from mine, and then he and I get up $5k each. Basically the wedding will be $20k or less.
- I have 150 guests and thats not even the grooms family included lol.
- He and I will pray before the wedding, but we'll stand on opposite sides of the door.
- Horse/carriage for leaving the wed

Mostly following traditions that fit our cultures. My fiance is Serbian but I'm not (I have Russian background though), so we're already intercultural. We're getting married in the Orthodox church to satisfy our more traditional parents and families, even though we're not really religious ourselves. I'm excited about it, but I'm hoping it doesn't go on too long like typical Orthodox weddings, lol. Wikipedia has a pretty good outline of what goes on - en.wikipedia.org/.../Marriage_in_the_Eastern_Orthodox_Church
I'm wearing a white dress and he's wearing a tuxedo. We're only having 40 guests as well, just family and close friends. I think more people are coming to the reception afterwards though. The cake is actually going to be cupcakes, it's cheaper and we think that's way more fun. The alcohol will definitely be flowing freely. A dry wedding typically goes against Slavic tradition - guests have to drink to the health of the couple, to welcome the couple into God's Kingdom, and to Jesus, all that kind of stuff.
We're both musicians so we're hiring friends to come and play music for us, and a friend is also doing the photography. The reception will go late into the evening/night because we all like to dance and party. And no bachelor/bachelorette parties for us.1
