Guys Reveal Their Dream Weddings, Because Yes, They Do Actually Think About It

by Candice Jalili

When I think about my dream wedding, what I picture is simple. I want it to be summertime by the beach with everyone I love, and that's pretty much it. Oh, and I'd also like some prime rib on the menu. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have had all of this figured out if it weren't for the fact that it was all my friends wanted to talk about when we were little. I always assumed it was just a girl thing. But it turns out, guys think about their weddings, too. Want to know what a guy's dream wedding looks like? I've got you covered!

A recent Reddit thread prompted dudes to respond with what their dream weddings would look like. From the guy who wants a secret courthouse marriage with his BAE, to the one who wants to elope somewhere tropical, to the one who wants to spend the night dancing with all of his friends and family, they all have different kinds of weddings that they would absolutely love to have. Read along and check it out.

He wants an affordable ceremony with the love of his life.

Cheap and with someone I love.


He prefers minimal responsibility with maximal booze.

A very short ceremony in which I don't have to do anything, followed by lots of free booze.


He got married at a Renaissance fair.

Had mine. We got married at a renaissance fair in a sacred druid circle of stones. We had an owl fly the rings to us at the altar. No shit, a white owl. It was fantastic. We had bagpipers play the wedding. My wife was absolutely gorgeous.


He'd want to elope somewhere exotic.

I'm getting married in June. Very short ceremony on her grandparents property and then a country club wedding reception with around 150 guests.
My dream wedding as I'm not entirely fond of being the center of attention: elope on an exotic vacation. But the fiance wants the traditional wedding and oh well the honeymoon should be awesome.


He values the honeymoon over the ceremony.

Scrapping the ceremony and using the money to take an extra long honeymoon. Believe me the wedding isn't worth the massive amount it costs and it goes by in a flash. The real memories are made on the honeymoon


A simple beach wedding is all he wants.

Beach wedding - close friends and family followed by a simple reception.


A small party with a few good pics will do the trick for this guy.

Just a few close friends and family, not exceeding 20. A few good photographs. That's it.


This guy wants to spend his wedding "dancing the night away" with the ones he loves.

All of my friends and family there. Dancing the night away. Just to get people together nowadays is tough and this would make me extremely happy.


Something affordable with friends and family is this dude's dream.

One that's not gonna cost as much as a midrange sports car or a nice downpayment on a house and one with all our closest family and friends.


He wants a secret courthouse marriage.

I want to get married at the courthouse with our immediate families, then not tell anyone else. We'd just start wearing our wedding bands and see how long it took for people to notice.If we had to do an actual wedding, I'd want to keep it as small as possible. Close family and friends, maybe 50 people. Get married by a friend and have a reception somewhere nice. Open bar, no gifts, preferably no dancing.


He wants a cheap ceremony followed by a month-long honeymoon.

A cheap ceremony followed by a nice, but reasonable for the occasion, dinner with everyone involved where everyone chips in.
Then like month long vacation with my spouse where we just screw each other to death, eat out and don't worry about work.


For him, it'll be just the two of them, followed by a reception with loved ones.

Somewhere nice, just me and my best gal. No guests, no family, just us. It will always be something that the two of us will share. The moment, the location. It will always be ours. Then of course fly/drive/take a train, back home and celebrate with your loved ones, as you should.


All right, now, go ask the dudes in your life what their dream weddings would look like. They might have more to say than you would have thought.
