Oh my gosh, this is going to be scary… all you ladies have so much more done than I do!
Wedding Date: February 22, 2014
Engagement Length: 15 months – engaged November 10, 2012
Colors/Theme: Silver, grey, cream, fig
Guest #: 75
Wedding Party(#s): 3 BMs, plus my brother on my side, and 5 GMs
First Look: Yep! Since we’re running on limited daylight, and we don’t like the idea of a big gap between the ceremony and reception, we went with the first look idea.
Ceremony: Elegant but cozy room with a fireplace at our venue (a 1930’s inn)
Reception:Various other rooms at the inn – cocktails in the lobby (fireplace, great black & white tile floors, lots of open space), dinner in the main dining room, dancing/party in another room, and after hours in the original pub that is underground.
Transportation: I don’t think we’ll need any, since it’s all taking place in one location!
Dress Style: Let’s not even go there…
Veil Style: definitely a long one, at least a few feet on the floor, but the specifics aren’t decided on yet.
Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): Pro hair and make-up
Honeymoon Location: Hawaii – Maui and Kauai
Flowers: peonies, ranunculus, lambs ear, smattering of white roses, and pine cones
First Dance Song: It’s a secret 🙂
Centerpieces: Branches, pine cones, candles, and flower balls made to look like snowballs.
Food/Menu: Haven’t gotten there yet, but our venue has delicious food, and we’re spending a great deal of money on the food/beverages. Hey, priorities!
Cake Flavor: Not sure yet, but the FI loves carrot, and I like red velvet.
Favors: We’re not sure – maybe little pine tree saplings in burlap bags, jams, or local chocolates.
Photobooth or other reception entertainment: Possibly a cigar bar, s’mores, whiskey/burbon bar, and some late-night eats!
