When did you get engaged? October 30, 2011

 When is your wedding? October 13th, 2012

 What state or country is your wedding in? Destin, FL (on the beach)

What are your wedding colors? Turquoise and Purple

 What is your wedding theme? Beach, romantic, and very laid back and fun

 How many people are you expecting? Under 40

How large is your bridal party? My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor, no other bridesmaids, his good friend is his best man.  His nephew will be ringbearer(well more so just his mom walking him down aisle since he is not even 2 yet)

Did you find your dress? Yes, chiffon one shoulder dress that is very beach appropriate, so comfortable and I will be floating down the beach on it, can’t wait!

What do you need help finding or doing? Money to pay for rest of it, lol(j/k) I have never been one to be all about weddings so I’m trying to keep things as stress free as possible for me.  Trying to plan a wedding several states away without going to visit the wedding location before the wedding def is a challenge but so far I’ve done pretty well.  I have many friends that have offered their help to me for my wedding day(ex: decorating reception space for me, being the ipod “dj” for me, etc, etc) and I’m so grateful to them.  I do still need to find a hair salon there to do my hair and makeup and figure out where I’m gonna buy all the alcohol at for the reception once I get to Florida.

Are you a DIY bride? Not really.  I’m making my own centerpieces but they are incredibly easy(will make them night before  wedding that is how uncomplicated they are)
