    How long have you and your FI been together: almost 3 years

    Ooh, Can I see a pic of Coco?  My dogchild is Delilah.  

    I actually don't know the name of my Maggie dress.  I got it at a sample sale and the name wasn't on the tag.  I have pictures at work that I can post on Monday.

    Bride and groom name: Jessica & Don
    Where are you getting married: Village View Church of Christ in BG
    When are you getting married: April 16, 2011
    Where will your reception be: Tontogany Legion
    Why did you choose your ceremony location: The pastor at the church has been through a lot with us and my aunt goes to church there. It just felt right that we he be the one who marries us and that we use their church.
    Why did you choose your reception location: It fit the budget and holds the amount of people we need it to.
    How many bridesmaids/groomsmen/flower girls/ring bearers: 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, 2 flower girls, 1 ring bearer
    What are you wedding colors: red/black/white
    What has been your biggest wedding splurge so far: I'm not sure I've paid full price/a lot of money for anything so far. Food though will be a big expense when we get around to buying it.
    What has been your biggest wedding deal so far: Not sure I can pick one. I got my dress for $99 at the Atlas sale in July, which saved over $500. I also got quite a few things on sale and at garage sales over the summer. I think I've figured up that so far I've saved over $3,000 on everything.
    How long have you and your FI been together: 2 1/2 years and we'll have been together just over 3 years when we get married.

    What are you wedding colors: light blue, purple & graphite grey 
    I wanted the blue-hydrangea color but wasn't sure what to go with it. Then I found this combo.. looove it...

    What has been your biggest wedding splurge so far: Probably having our reception at the Glass Pavilion but we are both so excited for it! 

    What has been your biggest wedding deal so far: Hmm.. I got my dress for a pretty good deal {Mikaella 1508}. It was actually UNDER what I budgeted originally which is pretty impressive.. I told FI I was going to put the saved $$ towards some super sweet shoes... :)

    When are you getting married: November 27, 2010 (40 days!)

    Where will your reception be: Gladieux Meadows Reception Hall

    Why did you choose your ceremony location: The church I was baptized in closed down.  This church is where my mother goes now (I live in CO, so it's not my church).

    What are you wedding colors: purple (like plum) and burnt orange

    What has been your biggest wedding splurge so far:  Limo to drive us around between ceremony and reception.  Completely unnecessary, but I wanted it for the experience.

    What has been your biggest wedding deal so far: Got my garter for $6 from Hobby Lobby, and my card treasure box thing for $15 from there.  The invitations were dirt cheap too... Got those from Michaels and then used a 40% off coupon.

    Bride and groom name: Jessica and Brian
    Where are you getting married:  Our church, Christian Fellowship. 
    When are you getting married:  July 1, 2010 (Our anniversary. :D)
    Where will your reception be:  The Lodge at Strawberry Acres
    Why did you choose your ceremony location:  I was originally against it (Sanctuary is not very attractive), but it's the most convenient location, as well as the place we first met and the place he first worked up the nerve to tell me he was interested in me, sooo...Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll be able to have the ceremony outside.  :)
    Why did you choose your reception location:  They're really decently priced and allow you to do all your own catering.  After checking it out ourselves and talking to another girl I know who had her reception there, we decided it was the best choice.  It's less than five minutes from our ceremony location!
    How many bridesmaids/groomsmen/flower girls/ring bearers: I have five girls...and so far he has two guys, lol.  I think he's made up his mind about who he'll ask for the third one, but we have no idea about the others...I told him it doesn't matter if the numbers don't match up, but I he really wants them to.  We'll figure it out. 
    What are you wedding colors:  Blue and green-our favorite colors.
    What has been your biggest wedding splurge so far:  So far, the reception hall, although I think that photography is going to end up being our biggest expense, aside from the honeymoon.  We just haven't settled on a photographer yet.
    What has been your biggest wedding deal so far:  Food.  We haven't figure out a total cost yet, but his best man's mother and one of my bridesmaid's parents will be doing our food, and it's going to save us a TON.  Also, engagement pictures.  One of my bridesmaids is a fantastic photographer, and she has done two shoots with us for free, as her wedding gift.
    How long have you and your FI been together:  Not very long, ha.  About 16 months.
    Share anything else you would like:  Anybody know any decent photographers in the area that have packages below $1,000?
