Round #2: Hump Day 20 Q's

TK seems hungry today... ugh.  It ate this post that I posted earlier this morning, but bye going through my post history I found it:

So way back when (6+ months ago, lol) I used to post a 20 Question thread every Wednesday, it has been long enough I thought I could do another one :)

Re: Round #2: Hump Day 20 Q's

  • I can still get to the old one if I click on my history, but here's a copy and paste:

    1)  How many days until your wedding?
    122. Hit the 4 month mark yesterday!

    2)  What are your colors?
    Ivories, whites, nudes, etc, with a hint of purple. This may change

    3)  What is your theme?
    Elegant-laid back?

    4)  Wedding Dress?  Inspiration or the actual dress

    Same sash and all :)

    5)  Bridesmaid Dresses?  Inspiration or the actual dresses 
    No bridesmaids here! I'm having a Man of Honor/Bridesman (he hasn't picked which one he wants yet). He's wearing the same thing as the groom and the groomsmen:

    6)  What are you doing for your Rehearsal Dinner?
    Probably Novilhos (Brazilian steakhouse in Bellevue) to "honor my heritage" (aka, excuse to eat a lot of meat) :)

    7)  Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    We want to go to Hawaii!

    8)  What are you expecting for your Bridal Shower(s)? (themes, types of games, etc)
    None here.

    9) What are you expecting for your Bachelorette party?
    None here

    10)  What is your venue like?
    It's a winery, so lots of wine barrels :)

    11)  How much time are you taking off of work for your wedding/honeymoon?
    ~2 weeks for the honeymoon, probably one or two days before the wedding

    12)  What does your engagement ring look like?
    Solitaire diamond in white gold setting

    13)  What does your wedding band look like?
    White gold with little diamonds that I got from my mom

    14) What does your FI's ring look like?
    It looks kinda like this:

    15)  What are your favors?
    We're giving away a traditional Brazilian wedding favor (bem casados) which are a cookie with a caramel filing.

    16)  Are you having a guestbook or guestbook alternative?
    I want to have a guestbook. We'll see.

    17)  What are your cake (or other type of dessert) flavors?  
    Haven't picked it out yet! Jeez, this list is making me feel like I'm behind!

    18) What type of flowers do you want?
    I love hydrangeas, and want those. I also like peonies and dahlias.

    19)  What is stressing you out the most about wedding planning?
    Most of the stress is over. But two things that bug me is how much money we're spending (I feel like we could probably be spending less with some vendors, but we're not hagglers), and the fact that we have so many OOT guests, from SO far away, and they're spending so much money to come. It makes me feel a little guilty knowing I won't spend nearly enough time with them to show my appreciation for their visit.

    20)  What are you enjoying the most with wedding planning?
    Seeing how resolute and determined Fi is about getting married. I've had a couple of missteps (thinking we should wait until summer of 2013, but he's so determined to do this ASAP! :)

  • 1) How many days until your wedding?
    Only 21 days! June 23rd :)

    2) What are your colors?
    Black and white.

    3) What is your theme?
    We are doing an "international" theme, since we love to travel. We are having every table named/decorated after a country that we have spent time in! Hence, the black and white as the main colors, so nothing clashes! :)

    4) Wedding Dress? Inspiration or the actual dress

     

    Simple, clean lines. So very me! And, uh, look at the back!! Plus, it was fairly priced :)

    5) Bridesmaid Dresses? Inspiration or the actual dresses

    No picture that I can find, but my Maid of honor is wearing a black strapless dress, with a white flower pattern that goes across the middle-left side of her dress :-) I'm not having any other bridesmaids.

    6) What are you doing for your Rehearsal Dinner?

    We are renting out the middle room at Joey's Southcenter! And I'm really excited...my mom's pen pal of 30 something years and her daughter are flying over from London...my mom has no idea and we're going to "unveil" them at the dinner! Gonna be so fun watching my mom freak out!!

    7) Where are you going for your honeymoon?

    Right now we are going on a "phony-moon" to Vegas for a few days, but early next spring we are planning on doing a big Round The World type trip when our money situation is improved after the wedding ;)

    8) What are you expecting for your Bridal Shower(s)? (themes, types of games, etc)

    My bridal shower was french theme, black white and pink colors! It was really fun :-)

    9) What are you expecting for your Bachelorette party?

    Me and some of my girls are going to Salish Lodge to drink and gamble the night away :)

    10) What is your venue like?

     

    Lake Union Crew! We love the giant dock....we got engaged on a dock at Alki beach so I loved bringing that idea into the ceremony too! :)

    11) How much time are you taking off of work for your wedding/honeymoon?

    Only a week and a half :( But, still plenty of time to see everybody while they're here, and go to Vegas :)

    12) What does your engagement ring look like?


     

    Hard to see, but its a simple clean ring, that was a heirloom from my fiance's grandmother :):) Its the kind where the diamond kind of "floats" in the middle, so you can see the entire shape of the stone :)

    13) What does your wedding band look like?


     

    I love my engagement ring so much (and its been in the family for a while) that I elected to just get a "wrap" for it. The picture doesn't show it, but there are diamonds on the *sides* as well! Diamonds all around!!

    14) What does your FI's ring look like?


     

    He likes his bling too ;) More expensive than mine was!!

    15) What are your favors?


     


    We love Ritter Sport! I know its "not OK" to do chocolate as favors but....Ritter Sports (especially the flavors in this pack) always remind us of our European adventures! Which ties in to the travel theme, without being too pricey!

    16) Are you having a guestbook or guestbook alternative?


     

    We did a fully customized large guest book from blurb.com. The inside has every other page blank, paired with a different photo of a landmark in a city that we took :) It's really frickin' cool, probably my favorite thing so far TBH! ;)

    17) What are your cake (or other type of dessert) flavors? 

    Cupcakes!!! We are doing mini-cupcakes...red velvet, strawberry lemonade, and white on white. Super delicious!

    18) What type of flowers do you want?

    I am doing white tulips. Tulips are my favorite, because they remind me of our favorite country: Netherlands! :)

    19) What is stressing you out the most about wedding planning?

    MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And making sure everything looks the way I want it :)

    20) What are you enjoying the most with wedding planning?

    Having it all finally almost be over, and starting the actual important part of all this: just being with my new hubby :D

    I'm surprised there were no questions about food! We are serving a full Greek menu (for no reason other than we were originally going to go to Athens/Istanbul as our honeymoon) and that its DELISH!!!! I'd be interested to know what y'all are doing too!
