“That’s how you knooooooooow!”

Oh, sorry.

My wedding is sort of happening, when I choose the things I like.

I knew the things I didn’t want. Then went from there. Just knew I wanted candles. LOTS AND LOTS of candles. I spent a lot of time on the internet doing image searches.

This, of course, was before I discovered WB.

Fiance and I closed the gap on our long distance relationship not too long ago and we went shopping for things to decorate our place.  We didn’t want my girlie stuff and didn’t want his bachelor pad uhm…items.  Ha!!  We saw the damask pattern on some home decor and it was 1 of the few things we both really liked.  We didn’t choose it to decorate our place but we when we saw it in the “wedding world”, we pretty much knew right away that’s what we wanted.  My fave color is purple, any shade, dark or light.  But since we are having a Friday evening wedding with a lounge, piano bar type feel, we decided on deep metallic puple!  I call it REGAL purple and damask!! 

I agree with @Mrs.tobe:…LOTS AND LOTS of candles!

Once we picked the venue, the theme just followed. We are getting married in a castle, so I just went with a Victorian theme. I love everything Victorian, so everything just fell into place. And, I have gone crazy; just a little bit.

Hahaha well, we still have a long time until the actual wedding, but I have toyed around with a lot of different ideas- different “types” of weddings I guess. Outside, inside, casual, formal, simplistic, elaborate, matchy-matchy, free-flowing… there are so many things that would be so beautiful!

But Fiance wants to have the reception at a local Italian banquet hall, and I’d like to make that happen, since it’s one of like three things he’s expressed any care about. Anyway, I was lookng at pictures and they. hang. candles. from. the. ceiling. A la Harry Potter Great Hall. I’ve been a die-hard fan for… I don’t know… 12 years. And then I got the brilliant idea to set up long tables and kind of touch heavily on the whole great hall inspiration. And nothing that anyone can possibly say is going to convince me that it’s anything less than the best idea ever.

So I guess I knew by my borderline obsession, in conjunction with my willingness to defend the concept to the death. It’s something that I’m willing to pull out the “its MY wedding” card for (even though I generally dislike the use of that line).

It should be noted that Fiance supports my nerdiness, and he thinks it would look awesome. Plus, he gets the location he wants and the food he loves. Win-win. It represents the things that are important to both of us.

@noritake22: Wow. Your wedding is going to be gorgeous. Your dress will be perfect! (yes I have major dress envY).

We are doing a Carnival Wedding. I was actually looking for funny wedding ideas and came across the most beautiful circus wedding in our colors.

So now we’re just varying it to be more like a carnival than a circus.

We’re both very outgoing, young at heart kind of people. I also wanted something fun that my daughter (7) and stepson (4) could fully participate in and enjoy.

Well, originally I had wanted a 1950s wedding, but my best friend wanted it too. I didn’t want our weddings to be too similar, so I was then just going to go for a ‘bling’ theme. Once we chose our venue, I noticed they had a lot of art deco/1920s touches, so we’re going with that. It won’t be a full-blown 1920s flapper theme, but we’ll have touches of it.

@SoontobeMrsA: Haha, we’re already inviting like 8 million people, what’s one more? And the best possible kick-ass gift would be an invite to your wedding, because it is going to be SO MUCH FUN. I seriously can’t wait to see your recaps.

Although I would certainly accept 2 tickets to the Magical World of Harry Potter 🙂

@missmichigan: Nope! As a few other bees have stated, your theme can easily be “getting married” lol. I didn’t plan on having one. But it’s totally happening.

Good!  I like themes but I don’t think I could pull it off!
