My fiance and I have been together for nearly 14 years. Between the two of us we have 3 teens and one 10 month old. We're 32, and finally feel like we might have the time and energy to have ourselves a wedding. The plan...a nice, but mostly casual backyard wedding at my parents house. Ceremony and reception. We're thinking of doing a ceremony that honors our children and unites them as well, and I've been looking into a butterfly release for the immediate family members during the ceremony. Because we have been together so long, no one really expected a wedding out of us, i dont think, but since we are doing it, I would like to have something that people will remember, in a good way, of course! If you have any ideas, and don't mind sharing them, I would love to hear them. And also any great money saving tips! Thank you in advance!Answer Question

I like the idea of candles in weddings. Something I think is pretty is candles lining the aisle. Get some glass vases from the dollar store, put water in them put a couple drops of blue food coloring in the water then put floating candles in them. My best friend got married last year and what she did for her bouquet was as she was walking down the aisle her family members handed her flowers and when she got to her husband he tied a ribbon around them. I made the boutoniers for my wedding, it is pretty easy. If you are going to have bridesmaids you can do their flowers pretty easy too. For the flowers if you want to use real flowers call and find a wholesale florist, soooo much cheaper than a florist shop. I got my wedding dress from a consignment shop for $300. Sorry I could go on and on, I want to be a wedding planner so I think about ideas for wedding all the time.
