 Some tropical all inclusive resort. We’re looking at the Secrets locations.

What is your budget for the wedding, are you going over or staying under?

 $10k. Based on all of the quotes I am getting, we’ll be about $500 over budget. Unless my dress breaks the bank, which my fiance is pretty much telling me to do.

What is one thing about your wedding that’ll surprise guests?

 That we’re FINALLY getting married after 7+ years? I’m not sure. Hopefully how gorgeous I look in my gown. Also that we’re putting in a few semi-religious things on our ceremony to placate our parents. (We’re atheists.)

Has the planning process been fun for you, or are you ready for it to be over?

I’m about half and half. I have total wedding mush-brain. Which I don’t mind, I just feel like I’m driving my friends and family crazy talking about everything. I have the big three down (venue, photographer and officiant), so I’m hoping I can relax for 6 or 7 months before figuring everything else out.

Oh I love things like this…

How many months in between the proposal & wedding?

22. It was that or 10 as we got engaged in October and wanted an August wedding. We didn’t fancy planning in under a year, especially as we had a huge move (home and city) planned the following June. Turned out to be a good decision as that summer there were major building works next to our venue which would have put a massive dampener on things!

What state/country will your wedding take place in?

Somerset, England. It’s where I lived when we were first dating.

How many in your bridal party?

Four bridesmaids, one best man, one flower girl, and one page boy (he’s too little to do anything but he’s the son of one of my BMs and will be attached to her so we figured we’d put him in something cute).

What is your main color & accent colors?

Purple, red and blush pink, kind of like this:

We’ve been having a lot of fun with the wedding colours e.g. making purple, red and pink confetti, and we have purple-and-white, red-and-white and pink-and-white striped straws for the drinks.

What will be your first dance be to?

Annie’s Song by John Denver. Fiance suggested it because that’s my name…

What dress did you or do you plan to purchse?

Tia by Benjamin Roberts no 5312:

Where will you be or plan to be honeymooning?

3 nights in Vegas, a week in Hawaii (on the Big Island) and 3 nights in San Francisco.

What is your budget for the wedding, are you going over or staying under?

It’s kind of medium. We’ve stuck to it.

What is one thing about your wedding that’ll surprise guests?

They know we’re getting married in an art deco cinema. They don’t know that we’re serving Pimm’s, popcorn and ice-cream after the ceremony.

Has the planning process been fun for you, or are you ready for it to be over?

Both. I’ve really enjoyed planning but found it quite daunting it first (not a girly girl, was v. overwhelmed at the prospect of planning a wedding and found the idea of buying a dress frankly terrifying). Now I’m both loving the planning and wanting to be married already.

Staying under $2500.

What is one thing about your wedding that’ll surprise guests?

I have a little extra touch of a “bees” theme (with a cute story involving my Fiance and I knowing one another were the “bees knees” the moment we met), and am having bee cake toppers, honey sticks as guest favors, and different “bee” foods (Bumbleberry pie and The Bees Knees drink to name two).

Has the planning process been fun for you, or are you ready for it to be over?

I’m ready for it to be over.  It’s been fun, but spending money stresses me out, so I’ll be glad to not have to buy anything for a while after it’s done.  Haha  Also, I just want to marry this man already!  We’ve been together almost 7 years now, I can’t wait to call him my husband.  πŸ™‚
