- Wedding: May 2013
My sister D got engaged on 7/26 and I got engaged on 8/1!
The guys (A&M) talked about it ahead of time and were totally aware it would happen within a week. A (my guy) was sweet enough to check in with my sister after her engagement and make sure she was ok with it. D (technically my stepsister, we’re only 2mo apart, she’s my only sister and we’re very close) and I are having such a blast starting our wedding planning together!
My wedding: May 4, 2013: short ceremony on the patio at my parents’ house followed by a great party. It’s a backyard tent wedding, 80-100 guests, lots of kids, bridal party is 1 for each (My sis is the Maid/Matron of Honor, his bro is the BM) and then 6 little ones aged 2-8 in various roles. We both adore kids and met while working in pediatric healthcare, so it’s totally us. Bright colors (probably red/orange/teal or blue/orange….maybe with a little pink thrown in…lanterns, bud vases, classy but simple). There will be a large dance floor and an actual jukebox, and my Dad’s best friend (who’s a voice actor from the 80’s…i guarantee you’ve heard his voice but not his name!) will emcee/DJ. A friend may make the cake, we’re going to have our favorite local bar/grill do the food (mac and cheese bar anyone?). Definitely lanterTotal budget: 7k
Her wedding: Sept 8, 2013: theme is bohemian rainbow, it will be a 125 person, no kids affair at a beautiful summer camp where she used to work.She’s having 7 bridesmaids in ivory lace dresses with each one having a rainbow color of shoe, and i would not be the least bit suprised if she rode in on horseback. She’s having a friend photograph and another friend DJ.
