- Wedding: February 1996
Hi Guys, I posted in the introduction thread after lurking for a while. I’m 24, and my bf is 32. think I’ve been driving him a tad crazy. I’ve been telling him ALL of my wedding plans. What i wanted, what i’ve found, things i’ve seen here and more! I don’t have many girlfriends in general, and the ones i do have aren’t close to marriage and really don’t want to hear ANY of it!
So i decided to jump right in here. 🙂
The ring… I would love anything my future hubby were to give me, but my preference is a round stone (no bigger than .5 ct, we dont have a huge budget) with a halo, i love the micropave look. Maybe an antique feel, but one thing i do know, I’d like the band to be 1.5mm or less. i have little fingers (size 4.5)
The dress.. hopefully something vintage or vintage inspired.. i’d love a tea length, but i have tattoos on my ankles and I wouldnt want them to detract from the prettiness elsewhere… and i love lace, maybe cap sleeves.. who knows! still pretty unsure!
The event… we’d be married in a catholic church, and the reception… hmm… i’ve talked about this with my bf, and he likes some of my ideas. He just bought his first home, and we’ve been renovating it for months. We’d want a backyard, comfortable, Eco, environmental, but vintage, country chic, BBQ sort of reception. He lives in the backwoods of NJ in bear country, and i’m from suburbia NY. I love the idea of mason jars with flowers, vintage tablecloths, lanterns hanging from trees, homemade garlands, and lights and some nice grilling done by all the guys. I just dont want it to look “trashy or cheap”.. im afraid of that…
These are all ideas, and possibilities, i hope to share my finds, and get some great ideas. I work as a designer during the week, and would love to make my own invites and save the dates and banners and things. I can’t wait for the DIY, but i dont want it to rule my life! We’ll see.
Til then… I’ll be around the forums, fainting at the gorgeous rings. 🙂
