Some brides want their weddings to be reminiscent of Coachella or a '90s-era New York City clurb-kid rave. From an open bar to a light-up dance floor, weddings can pack a major party punch. Of course, there is no shortage of brides who would rather read a book or have quiet drinks for two than boogie all night long with 250 of their closest friends. If you're not a party person, you plan on eloping, or wedding receptions have never been your speed, these brides that bailed after the ceremony may be your long lost soul sisters.
No matter what your mom, sister, or even your maid of honor may tell you — you wedding is your own. If you're not trying to have a big party, you don't need to feel any pressure to get out and dance. Whether you see you wedding as a serious time to celebrate love, or you'd rather spend money on an amazing trip than food and drinks for a bunch of people, skipping a wedding reception may be the move for you.
I spoke with five brides that bailed after their ceremony, and what they say makes a ton of sense.
