I knew that I wanted to have an outdoor wedding, that my uncle would officiate, that I’d have yellow rose bouquets and that I’d have a blusher veil.  Everything else has been up for discussion.

  • Wedding: August 2010

Well mine had nothing to do with the ceremony, but I HAD to have a caterer!! At my sister’s wedding we just ordered the food and then her in-laws were suppose to make salads. Well her Mother-In-Law decided since SO many people were coming into town they would have a reunion the next day and saved the salads…so we were short food and I had to run out and get more from the company. Luckily it was okay, but then I had to scrub all the dishes afterwards and help deliver them back to the rental company.

My cousin’s wedding was a bit better, but I still had to help wash dishes for her nearly 300 guests. So I decided NOT THIS TIME since I want everyone to enjoy themselves. That is probably why everything else is relatively cheap or I’m handmaking it.

Location. I always knew which church I wanted to marry at and I also wanted a beach wedding. When Fiance agreed on the reception venue it was confirmed instantly and we never looked elsewhere.

Oh this could be fun. Things I always knew about my wedding

-It would be outdoors (well, that didn’t happen. middle of October in Kansas…yeah, bad idea)

-My colors would be dark red and golden yellow (again, didn’t happen. Apparently nobody else liked that combination and looked at me like I was crazy. I still say it would’ve been awesome)

-I would dance with my dad to Butterfly Kisses (not having a dance, and started looking for music that isn’t overplayed at weddings)

-My best friend would be a bridesmaid (we’re not so close anymore, she’ll participate now in other ways)

-My grandpa would say the reception blessing (he passed away in November)

-I would serve mac and cheese. FINALLY! One that IS happening.

ETA: I forgot about my dad walking be down the aisle. Now THAT was an absolute given for me.

I knew I’d get married at my home church, in the spring, as a relatively small and casual affair. I can’t say that I’d have any serious problems making other wedding decisions, though. I have a clear idea of what I do and don’t like about weddings. It’s mostly a matter of making my ideas feasible, haha!

It had to be very intimate. I could never picture myself having a big wedding.
From the moment we got engaged, we also agreed on not being into too much details and not wanting to plan too much.

Intimate + not wanting to stress with details = Destination Wedding in an all inclusive resort.
We had decided on that way before we got engaged; when going to weddings and talking about how our hypothetical wedding would be.

I knew I wanted to get married in a church. I also wanted a very simple elegant wedding, I have that to an extent, but others have made it more elaborate than what we wished. We would have been okay w/ a backyard BBQ…wish I would have spoken up sooner and stuck w/ what we really wanted. In the end we will love our day no matter what!

Always known the church; and priest.

Also knew who I wanted to sing – just hope they can make it now that I’m getting married in a different state 🙂

Having a mad hatter cake! It’s something that I always wanted, so there was no doubt that that was what I was going to do for our cake! I’m thankful that my FH agreed :]

Also getting married outside under the trees was something I always envisioned. Done and done ;]

I knew from the start I wanted a black and Fuschia wedding, different hues of pink.

I’ve always known I wanted an ELCA (lutheran) minister officiating.  that part is happening.

And that my sister would be Maid/Matron of Honor, which she is.

Other than that, most of my other ideas have fallen by the wayside.

Such as:

winter wedding–wanted this since I read a trivial pursuit question when I was about ten that said January was the least common month for weddings (great idea, except travelling is a tad difficult in the northern prairie states in January)

brunch reception (everyone’s coming from out of town so it makes sense to have it later in the day to account for travel time)

small, around 30 people (fiancee and mother nixed that one!)

no dance (fiance really wants a dance, I relented)

no alcohol (decided that would have worked great for a brunch reception, not so much for dinner and dancing)

long sleeved dress (gave up on that pretty quickly after the winter wedding idea was axed)

So my vision has changed considerably.
