With twelve days to go before my wedding, I'm getting pretty excited! I found this on a wedding site and thought it could be fun to fill out and then read everyone else's answers. :)
Wedding Date: May 19, 2012
Engagement Length: 'Officially' a year-ish, people have known and we have planned for a little over three months.
Colors: Pinks and white.
Theme: Cherry blossom.
Wedding Party(#s): None, actually. Just the two of us.
Rehearsal Dinner (where, time): Not having one. We don't have a wedding party, so there's really no need. FMIL keeps pushing us to have one, but we don't have the time or interest. I'm going to be cooking the wedding dinner all day on the 18th.
Ceremony (where, time): A clubhouse in our hometown, 2pm
Reception (where, time): Same location as the ceremony, follows immediately after the ceremony. It can last until whenever, we really don't have any 'vendors' and we have the venue from Friday morning to Sunday morning.
Dress Style: Simple white a-line dress, floor length with no train. The lady who is doing my alterations is adding some beading to the top near my chest to make it match my veil. The veil is more elaborate; a delicate material with some dainty Swarovsky crystals lining the edges.
Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): Hair professionally done, doing my own makeup.
Honeymoon Location: Corolla, NC (Outer Banks)
Flowers: Cherry blossoms, lillies, and some leaves and grasses the florist helped me pick out. There are a few other kinds to tie it all together, but I can't remember the names.
First Dance Song: Honestly, I'm not sure if we're going to have a dance or not yet. I'm not one for dancing and get embarrased too easily, and DF doesn't care either way.
Centerpieces: A vase of llies and cherry blossoms sitting on a round mirror, with cherry blossom silk flowers that I handpainted and beaded to sprinkle over the mirror's edges.
Food/Menu: Sandwiches made from croissants, a shrimp tray, sausage balls, sausage dip, cream cheese mints, fruit and veggie trays with dip, a chocolate fountain, and a homemade edible arrangement fruit boquet. Actually, all of the food I've made/will make myself with the help of my mom and a few friends - and I know I'm leaving out a lot of the food by accident. It's buffet-style for 30-45 people.
Cake Flavour: Top layer; marble. Middle layer; marble. Bottom layer; white.
Bar: DF's brother took bartending classes last year, and is excited to be our bartender. We've got a bunch of booze picked out so everyone can choose their favorite instead of having a limited menu. We don't drink often, so may as well make it a big party! I know I'm having a mojito or three after it's all said and done.
Favours: Heart shaped, tutti fruitti flavored, candy cane favors that are pink and white, bagged and tied off with ribbon, a thank you tag, and a vial of wedding bubbles.
DJ/Band/Ipod: My cousin plays guitar and will be playing some and DJing for the rest.
Bachelorrete (when/what): Not having bachelor or bachelorete parties...apparently we have family that we have to entertain the night before.
