Homestyle Weddings - The Ultimate Family Affair

When a couple decides to marry, the way the choose to have their ceremony is based on their personalities. Each person has their own individual style, however when two people come together, a new style is created from their union. This is the ideal perspective for a wedding; to let elements of who they are and why they have chosen to marry shine through.

The average wedding today can be an extremely complicated and expensive affair. Indeed, there is a bit of a competitive air surrounding weddings with the goal to see which can be the most elaborate and spectacular. Thankfully, it doesn't have to be this way, if you and your partner are more focused on the purpose of the wedding than publicity you can have a beautiful marriage ceremony at home.

Of course, the first thing you think of for this type of wedding is the house where the ceremony will take place. Most commonly, the home of the bride's parents is selected, but that doesn't have to be the case, it can just as easily be held in the home of the groom's parents or another relative. In addition, if neither of these is an option, there are homes that can be rented for wedding ceremonies.

Choosing a homestyle wedding can be organized most easily if you begin with your guest list. Naturally it will be smaller unless the home is large enough to accommodate many guests. However, one of the nice things about choosing this style of wedding is that it makes you focus on the people who are the most important to you and your partner, the people you absolutely would love to attend and witness you exchange marriage vows and wedding rings.

This theme is endearing to most people because it immediately brings family and comfort to mind. Familiar surroundings make it easier for the bride and groom to keep wedding jitters at bay and enjoy the excitement of the occasion. Guests will also feel more comfortable in this setting and the families of both the bride and groom can relish the moment of beaming pride as their children step into a mature level of life.

The decorations and menu for the wedding luncheon or dinner can be as simple or elaborate as you choose, with a profusion of flowers, candles and delicious homestyle food. Hiring live musicians such as a pianist for the wedding entertainment can provide the opportunity for singing and dancing to nostalgic tunes.

When all is said and done, choosing to have your wedding at home is one of the best ways to unite two families together and create lasting memories of the day the famiy tree was extended in a new direction.
