A wedding for two?
Close your eyes and imagine the waves hitting the cliff. The sand burns under your feet. You look boldly at the unbridled horizon, challenging the future with your own eyes. You keep shaking your beloved's warm hand all the time and you know that this is the most beautiful moment in your life. You are completely alone, a few thousand kilometers from your family and friends. Just you and him. Sounds like a perfect wedding?
The decision to marry just the two of us is never easy. The pressure from the family often turns out to be unimaginable. Because what do you mean, no wedding? It's a tradition, isn't it? You must remember, however, that this is your day. And that you have to think first of all about yourselves, not the conventions in force.
Running away for two and by chance, the local residents, taken as witnesses, do not have to be associated with a wedding ceremony on the beach in a distant tropical country. It might as well be a small, charming wooden church hidden from the whole world in one of the Masurian villages.
The search for the wedding hall and orchestra, detailed planning of the decoration concept, planning of the appropriate color scheme and wardrobe, arranging the menu, inviting guests and their arrangement at the table, which often turns out to be very complicated logistics, transport of those invited to the church, transport of those invited to the wedding hall, accommodation for the guests... And all this is just a drop in the ocean of the wedding celebration organization. You really don't want to give it up, do you?
A wedding without guests does not have to discredit your dreams of a white, airy dress torn by the wind and a wreath of field flowers frivolously stuck on your head. Instead, it can relieve you of unnecessary stress and unwanted judgments about the organization of a celebration on the part of others.
Wedding ceremony for two is also the lack of unnecessary confusion, focus on yourself, the ability to fulfill the dream of wedding somewhere on the edge of the world and considerable financial savings. Not every bride and groom has enough money at the beginning of their journey, and the proverbial "wedding credit", taken before the marriage, is not one of the most romantic of all marriages. The organization of a pompous wedding by the families of the bride and groom is often associated with imposed expectations about the details of the ceremony, which does not necessarily correspond to those in love. Besides, some young people cannot imagine organizing a ceremony with parents' money.
Close your eyes again and imagine: a quiet wedding in a small chapel or in the registry office - only your closest family and cordial friends, all with tears of emotion on their faces. Then we had dinner together in a cosy pub with a glass of wine. And in the hallway, impatient suitcases, waiting only for you to take them in your hands and go to the place you've always wanted to visit, to spend your savings on that, not on a sumptuous wedding.
A celebration celebrated in two or spent in the company of a few people closest to your heart? Of course! One thing is certain - a wedding does not have to be connected with a party for several hundred people. Remember that when you're planning it.
