- Wedding: October 2014
I’m copying this from someone else.. for fun and to share details about our weddings and about vendors in our area!
Wedding Date: October 4, 2014
Engagement Length: 2 years, 5 months
How many are coming?: We’re inviting about 150, hoping for 120-135 to show
Colors: Different shades of Purples and greys
Theme: Don’t really have one. I want it to be simple, but elegant and sophisticated, not country/rustic at all. I thought I wanted that, but it’s SO the trend so that’s a turn off for me
Wedding Party(#s): 5 on each side
City and Province of Wedding: Barrie, Ontario
Ceremony (where, time): The MacLaren Art Center at 6pm
Reception (where, time): The MacLaren Art Center, cocktails on main floor right after ceremony, then up to the main room for speeches, first dances, then PARTY! (no dinner)
Dress Style: Haven’t bought it yet. Probably going to be Sophia Tolli’s Jillian. But I’ve also got a crush on Maggie Sottero’s Kadee, and Allure 8952
Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): Professionally done. Don’t know who yet bc it’s too early. I’m thinking I’ll have my hair down and in loose curls, maybe to one side. I want to put a deep purple accent in my hair.. like an extension thats a deep purple so I can have just one piece of purple hair curled into my do! My hair is very dark, so it’ll blend in and not be too noticeable. I know it sounds weird, but I’ve seen it done before and it’s subtle and looked so good! I want my eyes to be smokey and sexy
Honeymoon Location: No idea. I would like to go to Prague in November and visit the Christmas markets and then maybe over to Germany or Italy. Or we might just cave and do the carribbean. Fiance doesn’t want the carribbean tho bc we’ve both been several times. I’m letting the Honeymoon be his thing to plan.
Flowers: Again, no idea yet. I reallllllly wanted Hydrangeas, but I’m told the wilt almost immediately after being out of water. So i’ll have to do some exploring at the garden center and see what i like
First Dance Song: Still deciding! I’m really loving “feels like rain” by John Hiatt. that’s the front runner
Centerpieces: No idea. I’m envsioning deep eggplant purple table clothes and then some kind of simple silver vase – an antique silver pitcher or vase, something like that, and then hydrangeas inside, with crystals on the table just around the vase with tea lights
Food/Menu: Some hot hors d’oeuvres and finger foods, and maybe a midnight buffet – like a bbq or poutine bar. We’re not having a dinner, but I want lots of food for people to pick at, hot and cold
Cake Vendor and Flavour: I’m hoping to have a friend make it. I have a few friends who’ve gotten really into cake design and have made wedding cakes before….
Favours: Not sure I’m even going to do favours. No one ever keeps them.. I have never kept a favour from a wedding.. If I did, it got burried in a drawer somewhere and never served any real purpose. I’d rather make a donation to a charity and put up a sign or something for our guests to let them know in lieu of a favour, a donation has been made to ….
DJ/Band/Ipod: don’t know yet
Bachelorrete (when/what): It’ll be the summer of 2014, probably end of August. I haven’t decided if I wanna get a little wild and party, or do a relaxing girls weekend. If we go hard, it’ll probably be Toronto, Niagara, or Quebec/Ottawa. If we go with the spa weekend, it’ll be at the Scandinave Spa near The Village in Blue Mountain (Collingwood)
Rentals: Not sure, either Tiffany’s Party Rentals or Posh Beyond… I haven’t investigated the decor rental stuff around here yet
Photographer: Marcin Moka Photography (Now goes by MokaLi Photography) and oh my lord is his work amazing!!!! I’m SOOOOOO excited to have him do our wedding. I seriously can’t wait. Everytime he adds new photos to his site, I drool a little.
Officiant: We’re going to have a friend do it. Don’t know who yet, but a friend lol. FI’s mom is an officiant but neither of us are comfortable with her marrying us. She can do the legal part of it tho for free, so we can get anyone we want to do the ceremony and his mom will just sign all the paperwork.
Where are you and the groom staying?: Don’t know… probably just one of the nicer hotels in town close to the MacLaren… nothing fancy. The Monte Carlo Inn probably!
