Hi – I am doing a semi-destination wedding, so not sure if that counts? But I’ll play 🙂

What date is your wedding?: June 24, 2012

Where are you from?: Los Angeles, CA

Where will it take place?: Santa Barbara, CA (2 hour drive from LA)

How many are invited?: 55

How many in the bridal party?: 6 (1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 2 BD, 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 2 GM)

What is your colour scheme?: TBD (we are still working on it)

Gazebo/Beach/Indoor/Other?: Ceromony: Hotel rooftop (with ocean and mountain views). Reception: hotel ballroom.

Why did you choose Destination?: We wanted it to be out of town, to have the ceremony, reception and lodging all in one location, and we love Santa Barbara.

Are you going to your honeymoon right after?: No, we are going to wait later in the year only because of our hectic work schedules.

Where?: TBD (we are thinking Greece or somewhere in Asia maybe)

How far are you in planning (percentage done)?: I’d say about 60% – yeah we are a bit behind, but slowily getting there.

Do you have your dress? (post it): Yes, I ordered it, but hasnt come in yet, so here’s pic of the dress on a model.
