- Wedding: May 2012
Since the November board didn’t already have one of these, I thought I would steal it and get our own survey started!
Wedding Date: November 9, 2013
Engagement Length: 24 months (almost exactly to the day)
Colors: Shades of purple and silver
Theme: Modern romantic with an amethyst theme since our reception is in the gems and minerals hall of a science museum! My themed pinterest board is here.
Wedding Party(#s): 1 Man of Honor (my best friend), 1 Maiden of Honor (my stepdaughter), and 1 Best Man
Ceremony (where, time): Downtown Dallas at the new Perot Musem of Nature and Science, starting at 6:00pm
Reception (where, time): Same place
Dress Style: Demetrios Ilissa, style 532
Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): Pro because while I could do my own, I don’t want to mess it up!
Honeymoon Location: We are taking a mini-moon this year to either Las Vegas or New Orleans, and a large international trip next year!
Flowers: Real, with lots of purple!
Processional Song:Rainbow Connection – Weezer feat. Hayley Williams
First Dance Song: Secrets – OneRepublic
Centerpieces: Lush and pave styled arrangement atop a silver trumpet styled vase to include hydrangea, stock, sweet peas, garden + majolika roses accompanied with mercury glass votives and little arrangement’s nestled at base of table. This is one of the ideas, but we are doing three different sizes.
Food/Menu: We are doing a buffet, and the food should be amazing since our caterer is awesome. The menu hasn’t been finalized yet.
Cake Flavour: White w/buttercream, amaretto w/buttercream, red velvet and chocolate cake balls. We are also having french macarons and some candy. Instead of a grooms cake, we are having an ice cream bar.
Favours: Small purple geodes to go with our theme!
Photography/Videography:Yes to both
Bachelorette (when/what): No clue since there are no women in our wedding party.
DIY?: I am DIY’ing my invites, programs/escort cards/menu cards, chair signs, shoes, dessert table backdrop, bouquet and bridal party flowers, and table numbers. I’m sure I will end up with more than this before November!
