Every little girl dreams of how she wants her wedding to be. A huge party, a big cake, lots of flowers, good music, and of course tons of dancing. This was all required for my dream wedding and as silly as it sounds, there was no way I was going to get married without it. If you would've told me a year ago that I would end up getting married in my living room with only a few close family members and friends, I would've thought you were crazy. Turns out maybe I'm the crazy one because, that's exactly what happened.

In the case of my wedding, only one thing actually went according to plan: I married my husband. Sit down, I'll tell you all about it.
I do trust my fiancé—I suppose that’s obvious, since I’m marrying him. However, I was very hesitant when he volunteered to plan my bachelorette party. It’s the type of pre-wedding celebration that is almost always handled by a bridesmaid. It is a girl’s night, after all.
