- Wedding: August 2011
were having an island theme wedding at the beach twenty miles from our house.
im wearing a white sarong with orange and red flowers.
my fiance is wearing khakis and a white shirt with orange and red flowers.
the bridesmaids are going to wear red and orange sarongs
the groomsmen are wearing khakis with red hawaiian shirts with orange flowers.
as you can probably tell our colors are red and orange.
we are getting married august sixth twenty eleven.
we have a fifteen hundred dollar budget and we are inviting close to a hundred people.
we are all wearing flipflops. no ringbearer or flower girl just two kids to hand out leis.
we are paying for it all ourselves.
the cake is being made by my fiances grandmother who was a baker professionally for many years. it will have asiatic lilies and swirls on it.
the band is my fiances band who will be performing gratis. he wants to provide kareoke but i am not sure we want to go that casual although it is a casual wedding with an island theme.
we are thinking an all cold food menu. buffet style. cold cuts, seafood salad chicken salad fruits melons potato salad perhaps.
we are having a hard time thinking of good music. my fiance wants our dance to be to the song in this life by iz aka bruddah iz or israel k? i cannot spell it. lol.
we are hoping against hope it doesnt rain because it would put a damper on the festivities if we had to do this inside. his family is also planning on bringing boats and waverunners… i think it should wait until after the receptionish time. if they bring them. my family is less than thrilled about that part.
also having a hard time finding hawaiian shirts that are less than fifty dollars. rediculous.
does anyone have anything they could add to this idea… or opinions/
