We skipped the BIG wedding for a small reception by the beach instead!

Ahmad & I decided that a small intimate reception wedding was the right thing for us. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE weddings, But it wasn’t going to work for us. I wanted something different, something that would make the night slightly remarkable than any other wedding (At least for us). We also decided to save the money & go to California & Florida for our honeymoon & it was the BEST decision we have ever made.

We settled on a small wedding in Ein sokhna with barbeque & simple table settings.


Why would I do it again?

At first my parents were really devastated by the idea & my father thought we were going to have a very boring day & that people wont drive all the way to share our day. As we live in a society where weddings have to be LOUD with lots of food & a lot of invitees that I didn’t even know their names. I wanted to break the stereotype, save some money & choose my day the way I wanted.

Our choice meant to have a simple wedding with all our close friends & family who would really be happy for coming & being part of that day.

The place was miraculous & the weather on that day was wonderful (And my parents were beyond delighted). Of course it had me to do a lot of work getting the barbeque, choosing simple dishes, desserts & decorations. My friends helped me along the way & I will be forever grateful for helping me make my day just perfect! 🙂
