Ceremony (location and time): Star Spanlged Banner Flaghouse Baltimore 4pm

Cocktail Hour: While we are doing pictures the guest can go to the reception space and eat the fruit and vegie trays…

Dress Style: Simple and flowly (thats exactly what I asked for lol) Below is a pic when I tried on dresses. My actual dress will have no train (ordered it without one). 

Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): I am planning on hiring a pro (still looking for one), I have sensitive skin so the makeup will depend on whether I am allergic to it or not on if I get it done. 

Honeymoon Location: We will not be going until next year. We will probably be going to florida. 

Flowers:  red roses, white callas, and white feathers. I made them myself and I’m not super crafty. I might add some pearl flower pins in the roses but I havent decided yet. 

First Dance Song: We havent officially decided. I want Tyrese Sweet Lady, Fiance wants Atlantic Starr Always

Centerpieces:  I actually got this set when I went to Walmart around V-day. It matched the colors and what I wanted for the centerpieces so that was easy.

Food/Menu: Buffet style, BBQ Chicken, Roast Beef, Crab Balls.

Signature Drinks, Open Bar or Dry: Dry. Its a small wedding with only a few people who would drink so it wasnt worth the costs to provide alcohol.

DJ/Band/IPod: IPod. I made up a list of all the songs I’m working on the order I want them now. 

Bachelorette (when/what):  Maid/Matron of Honor is still planning but I know its late September. I want either a day of pampering (mani pedi day) or one of those slumber parties where they show/sell you sex aids (lingerie, lubes, and toys).
