Hello! Fellow April 2019 Bee here. 🙂 Your destination wedding sounds so fun – love that you are accentuating the tropical theme!

Date? 

April 13, 2019

Where are you from?

Wisconsin 

Where will it be? 

Saint Paul, Minnesota

How many guests?

Around 120

Theme/ Decor? 

No set theme or color palette (will try to stick to neutrals/black and white), but I’m going for a simple (yet elegant), quirky, and fun vibe! Having bridesmaids wear their choice of long black dresses; hopefully groomsmen will be in gray or charcoal suits. Florals will be bulk from Costco – just baby’s breath and greenery. Simple centerpieces with glassware from Goodwill, candles, and aforementioned florals.

How is planning so far? 

It’s going well! We have been trying to nail down the big vendors asap – so far, we have venue, photographer, and salon. We have a catering tasting tomorrow (fingers crossed!) and have confirmed availability of DJ, bartending service, and day-of-coordinator. Only things stressing me out at this point are the guest list and $$$. 🙂

Date? 

April 19, 2019

Where are you from?

New Jersey

Where will it be? 

New York City

How many guests?

~20

Theme/ Decor? 

No theme, jsut focusing on getting married and having close family and friends present to witness

How is planning so far? 

Quite easy! We are basically “eloping” with close family and friends present. Hired a photographer whose wife is an officiant…. we have no official ceremony location. Apparently in New York you can get married wherever you want, and so we are leaving it up to our photog/officant to tell us what spot looks best in photos. Dinner reservation at One if By Land, Two if By Sea which is one of the “most romantic restaurants in the city”. Jetting off to Jamaica the next morning– can’t wait!
