  • Wedding: December 2011

I’m brand new to posting (but not to board stalking…*blush*), but we’re pretty sure we’ve set a date now, 12/03/11.  We are SO excited!

Our parents (both sets) are happy for us, although I think worrying about the money piece…  We don’t have a theme, per se, but are going for elegant white; we’re looking at having the wedding ceremony and reception both at a manor house in the area.  Your candlelight ceremony sounds beautiful!

We got engaged over the summer (family drama involved there a little bit–we both have elderly grandparents and wanted very much for them to share this moment with us; my grandmother passed only just over a month later so I was really happy we made this choice) and it’s exciting to have a date for the people who keep asking “so…when?!”.

Dec. 24, 2011!!!  My parents said the same thing, bad time for a wedding, especially in Puerto Rico, where we have tons of family, and they get together for xmas eve blah blah blah.  But i’m happy with it.  we’re having the ceremony on the beach, and the 6 hour long reception will be a kick ass traditional puerto rican xmas party!  with live music, and 200 guests,, tons of food, it’ll be so much fun.  I do want men in guayaberas, which is a type of shirt older hispanic gentlemen wear, and everyone is to be in white and or beige.  very light, very clean, very fresh.  on a warm puerto rican night, that sounds perfect to me!!!

Congrats to my other Dec. 2011 brides!

We set our date of December 2, 2011 and are really excited.  Our colors are ice blue, silver and white with snowflake/icy accents. Im a planner type person so the venue is booked, video, photographer, harpist and DJ as well as our honeymoon to Antigua.  I know its early but we knew what we wanted so I rather get things out of the way and put deposits down so it gives us enough time to save and not be as stressed.  I found booking ahead of time too and being off season here in New England we were able to get some great deals.

@beckiesue: whoops! I didn’t see this post until today…but with a board this slow maybe 3 days isn’t too bad πŸ™‚  So far I’m thinking primarily ivory for my color–I’ve waffled back & forth on maybe touches of silver and/or red, but I think it’ll pretty much be ivory on ivory for everything.  We’re really trying for that snowy, elegant, cozy, classic winter wedding feel.  I grew up in New England and have always wanted a winter wedding, so I hope it works out!  Have you chosen yet?

Bunny Im also in MA on the south shore where are you getting married? We are doing the winter wonderland theme of ice blue, silver, white with snowflake accents.  I thought it was great colors for new england but staying away from the xmas feel.

@kjanet2001: Sounds beautiful!  We’re getting married at the Wesson Estate in Northborough, MA–suburbs of Boston πŸ™‚  Have you picked your venue yet?  We’re not doing a church, so ceremony & reception are both at the same place, separated by a cocktail hour in the drawing rooms and library downstairs (our ballroom is upstairs).

I love the sound of snowflake accents…I’ve been thinking about putting something snowflakey/glittery on the Save the Dates since we’re planning on sending those around Christmastime this year.  I am also leery of the Christmas feel. Not that I don’t love Christmas (I do!) but I want my wedding to be a wedding, not a Christmas party!  We are big on Christmas in my family and FI’s fam is even bigger, so I really have to pay attention to keep the wedding separate!

We are getting married at the Villa in East Bridgewater MA.  The ceremony is also at the same site in front of a fireplace then moving to the ballroom and cocktail area.

 

I 100% agree with you in regards to xmas, I feel the same way and love the holidays as well. Everyone loves our color choices and ideas.  We are doing a hot chocolate to go station as people leave as a nice winter touch πŸ˜‰  Good luck with the planning

This is my first post!  I’m happy to see some other December 2011 brides! My date is set for December 2 as well.  So far we’ve only just booked a venue.  So far the colors might be red, ivory or champagne, and black.

Oops I haven’t been in touch with this thread! I’m happy to see other Dec 2011 brides!

@kjanet2001: I LOVE the hot chocolate idea! That is perfect!

 

 

@BunnyBrideToBe: I haven’t chosen yet… but I am going for that same feel that you are. I’m playing with the idea of using a super dark red. I love that color, but I’m also liking the frosty blue, white, and silver idea… decisions decisions!
