Rebecca and Glen Maxwell got engaged back in 2016 and have been planning their big wedding since then. As we all know, weddings are often time extremely expensive - especially for young couples - and can put a lot of stress on a relationship.
That is exactly what happened to Rebecca and Glen. The planning got very stressful as they were trying to budget for everything. Then, one night Glen told Rebecca:
" We could get married in jeans and t-shirts and I'd still love you."
That is when the couple knew! Why not just do it?
Instead of having a fancy and expensive wedding like they were planning to, they simply got married at the Darlington town hall and went to Centre Parcs Whinfell Forest after the ceremony for dinner. The couple got a simple sheet cake and cupcakes instead of the traditional expensive wedding cake. And the best part; they wore t-shirts, jeans and sneakers!
Only close friends and family members where invited to the wedding, making the count to 40 people. They were also invited to dress in jeans and t-shirts!
Rebecca shared that :
"I want to show other brides that if they don't have a big budget, it doesn't matter... As long as you marry the person you love, surrounded by people you love, your day will be special"
What do you think of their decision? Would you agree to settle on a smaller wedding?
We wish them a long life together filled with love!
