futureMrs.Owens: Whens your wedding date?
November 7, 2015. Our theme is “wedding” since we are way too lazy (and cheap) to do an actual theme. 🙂
Tell me about your decor, flowers, dresses, suits, wedding party, venue, ect!
Decor – Minimal, if anything. The venue we booked is gorgeous inside and out, so we really don’t need to do that much.
Flowers – Still deciding, but we both love sunflowers. I really want small and simple bouquets, so probably just a few sunflowers with a second flower mixed in (white for the BMs and blue for mine). Originally, I really wanted to carry a book down the aisle – because I’m a huge nerd and it’s free – but my FI really wanted me to have flowers for some reason. . . and he is adorable when he asks stuff like that, so I can’t say no.
Dresses – I plan to do what my sister did. She took us to David’s Bridal, gave us the material and color, and then let us decide what dress to get. Since our colors are blue, white/ivory, and yellow we are going to do some sort of blue dress (probably a light blue). My wedding gown is chiffon, so I’ll probably go with that material for them as well.
As for mine I have an A-line Chiffon gown from David’s Bridal. It has straps and it is very simple looking, except for some metallic beading around the waist (its in a leaf pattern). Very me. 🙂
Suits – We are most likely going to have all the guys in dark charcoal suits with light blue ties.
Wedding Party – Will consist of our siblings (my two sisters and his two brothers), as well as one friend each (my best friend since 3rd grade and his college roommate).
Venue – We booked with a venue that sits on a golf course in our new town. Neither of us were thrilled about looking at golf course places, but it is absolutely beautiful and was a reasonable price. The staff and food are amazing as well so we really feel like made a great choice.
What we already have done: Booked the venue and paid the deposit. I bought my dress. Chose our colors. Ordered and received our STDs. Have a meeting setup with the DJ/Photobooth people we are most likely going to book. Settled on our ceremony start time and reception end time. Picked out favors (these won’t be ordered for a long time, but we know exactly what we want to do).
Before the end of the year we hope to have the photographer and officiant booked. We also want to ask our Wedding Party members this December – we decided to wait until after my big sister (and hopefully future MOH) gets married this fall!
