  • Wedding: August 2012 - Iowa

How many months in between the propsal & wedding?
11 months. September 17, 2011 to August 25, 2012

What state/countrty will your wedding take place in? Iowa, USA

How many in your bridal party?
1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 3 Bridesmaids, 1 JR Bridesmaid or Best Man, 2 Personal Attendants
1 Best Man, 3 Groomsmen, 2 Ushers
2 Flower girls and 1 Ring Bearer – 16 Total

 What is your main color & accent colors? Champagne and Pink
I’m using all different shades of pink with ivory also

What will be your first dance be to? You’re My Favorite by Jason Jones
He’s a pretty new artist so check out the song here: http://www.jasonjonesmusic.com/albums

An absolute perfect first dance song! My fiance was going to surprise me by using it (I’m a big fan of the artist) but when I casually mentioned it would be a good first dance song he admitted that he was planning on using it!

What dress did you or do you plan to purchse? Allure 8771

Where will you be or plan to be honeymooning? We are undecided yet… may take a mini-moon somewhere local, and then a honeymoon next January to somewhere tropical

What is your budget for the wedding, are you going over or staying under?
We never really set a budget; my parents are paying around $5,000 and everything over is for us to pay. We should be around 8 or $9,000 not counting rings and honeymoon. Just trying to get everything as cheap as we can.

What is one thing about your wedding that’ll surprise guests?
I hope they’re suprised by how beautiful everything is! I’m trying to make everything unique to my wedding, expecially for a wedding here – so LOTS of real flowers, jam jar favors, a pb&j station, ‘kings’ table instead of head table, signature drinks, etc. etc. I think most guests will not have attended a non-church wedding in a winery either.

Has the planning process been fun for you, or are you ready for it to be over?
Planning and seeing everything come to life has been so much fun! The only part I hate is making final decisions because I only get to do this once!
