Definitely modest...to a fault, maybe, but much more my style than all the floofy dresses and flowers that are just going to wilt and be thrown away shortly afterward.
My first wedding took place in the batch plant office of a concrete mixing company. The reception was an outdoor barbecue at a friend's house. My then-husband wore his work clothes, complete with the day's concrete dust caked all over them, and I wore blue jeans and a sweater.
When I married my husband, we did a civil ceremony in a local lawyer's meeting room. This time we all wore clean clothes, and the witnesses even dressed up a bit. I wore black jeans and a nicer sweater. The reception took place at the local Chinese restaurant, followed by drinks at home with my cousins and new husband. One of these days we might have a more "wedding-esque" ceremony, but it's really hard to justify spending that kind of money when there is so much other stuff needing our finances.
