- Wedding: October 2014
My fiance and I find ourselves in a bit of a pickle. See, he and I didn’t wanted to have a “wedding”. We wanted to just go to an island and come back married. However, since he and I are both only children, our family was not pleased with that idea. Especially, since I am an older bride. I’m 36. Needless to say my mother has been waiting very long time for this day. Reluctantly, we gave in, however with a stipulation. He and I agreed that if we’re going to do this it has to be ALL ABOUT US! It has to be reflective of who we are as people and as a couple.
Now to the fun part. My fiance is a hip hop artist and I am a retired Full-Figured Model. Even though we are both college gradutes and have meaningful mainstream careers, we still live a “rock star” lifestyle. We don’t have any children so we make time to party and “go hard” as the saying goes. We have agreed on a Red, Black, and White color scheme. We have also agreed on a Red Carpet theme for both the wedding and the “After Party”. We’re not having a traditional reception. An early brunch immediately following the ceremony for family and friends will surfice lol. That night, however, we will be renting out the VIP section of our favorite club. Party Party Party.
Picking the color and themes was easy. Now putting it together is an entirely different story. All ideas are welcomed lol
