Honeymoon Location: Not sure, yet. Somewhere tropical. We’re going to wait until November to go on a honeymoon. The thought of rushing off on vacation immediately following the wedding, completely stresses me out!
Flowers: I’m DIYing and using silk so we can prep everything ahead of time. Mostly orange and pink roses. I love gerber daisies, but I feel like that will make it seem a little too “summerish” for a September wedding. Here is a photo of the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets.
First Dance Song: “I Wanna Grow Old With You,” Adam Sandler (Yup, that’s so us!)
Centerpieces: Tall colorful glass vases with orange and pink pomanders on top. Haven’t finished them yet, pictures to come soon. But I absolutely fell in LOVE with the faces. They’re so cool looking!
Food/Menu: Casual buffet of pulled pork sandwiches, fried chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, and baked macaroni and cheese. Our cocktail hour will have the basic meat, cheese and veggie trays along with the Pennsylvania traditional homemade cookies and candy. We’re also setting up a s’mores bar.
Cake Flavor: Chocolate cake with peanut butter filling, along with at least one other flavor TBD.
Favors: S’mores to go.
DJ/Band/Ipod: DJ – ELP Entertainment out of Chambersburg, PA
Bachelorette (when/what): Bachelorette party sometime in August or early September hosted by my maid of honor. I think she’s planning a girls night out somewhere near where I live now. My close friends from home are coming down for that, but most of the girls are local to where I live now. My mom is hosting a bridal shower at the end of August in my hometown. That will include most of my family, my fiance’s mom, aunt, and my close friends from here will be traveling to my hometown for the shower.
