Well things have been developing nicely since I last posted this board!
@girlbrat, we decided on a desserts reception!! I think it will be great. We’re having all his friends and family from New York coming in too. At first his mom has been opposed to the idea as well, but if they’re that much against it, I would let them pay for it. I told my fiance I would do a dinner if we could afford it, but we can’t and I can’t help that. But I think a dessert/candy reception has an elegant charm to it.
We are having the ceremony at my sister’s church in Monticello, her husband is the pastor so we’re getting it for about $50. We’re probably going to do the reception at this adorable little place on Bebee Lake in Buffalo/St. Michael. It’s a pastor and his wife who rent it out as their ministry. (www.dlandofpromise.com) The pictures on their site don’t do it justice at all, I was hesitant but after visiting I fell in love with it! I think with the right decor I’ll be able to make it very vintage and rustic. I can’t wait.
I found my dress at a consignment shop in Edina, Brides of France. And my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses on Modcloth,com and my girls paid about $65 for them.
We’re going to make our own desserts and as for flowers, my sister-in-law offered to help pay for them.
My sister is paying for her and I to get our hair done, and I am doing my own make up. I just went to Sephora today to do a free “make over” and find the style/look I want. they did a great job!!
there are a few of my plans coming together so far. :):)
