- Wedding: December 2013
I’m planning my wedding and I’m pretty excited about this idea… Having my wedding be about the marriage of my new FAMILY; my fiancee, his 8 year old daughter, and I. Here are my plans thusfar:
-Extra casual, small ceremony and reception max. 25 people @ lakefront resort or cottage
-Amazing wedding presses for both me AND my stepdaughter (She can pick her own colour, of course), and she and I walk down the aisle together with bouquets 🙂
-3 small cakes of each of our favorite flavours
-No bridesmaids/groomsmen/speeches/awkward traditions
-Colourful, whimsical, inexpensive decor
-Casual BBQ dinner
I’m recruiting you for your inexpensive, family-oriented ideas, fellow bees! I want this wedding to be extra special and fun for the kids (the kids are HALF of the guest list!!). I’m thinking balloons, face painting, dress-up, etc. Like a birthday party but… better. And I’m looking for your ideas to make sure the kids can sleep soundly at bedtime while the adults stay up and have some fun themselves. Also looking for ways to make the wedding special for my stepdaughter so that she really feels like we are a family :).
All input is appreciated! Thanks, everyone!
