So, after putting our wedding off twice for various reasons, FI and I are FINALLY ready to set a date. But he just totally threw me off guard! Our original plan was to be married outdoors in the peak of fall. We both loved the idea. Then today, he brought up the idea of getting married outdoors in the dark and having the aisle and area lit by candlelight and lanterns. Obviously this would require a different time frame because I think it would be too chilly to do it in October like we'd originally planned. I'm thinking it could also be difficult to find a place that will allow open flames outside. But, I do love the idea of the romance of it (and if you knew FI, you'd be shocked by this... he is NOT romantic!).
So, which idea would you like better? Would you come to an outdoor night wedding? Do you think your families would come? We would do it as soon as it was dark (hopefully 7:30 or 8 o'clock) with the reception immediately after. FI also brought up the idea of having a brunch reception the next day, but I'm not sure what I think of this.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I've walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above. ~ gia maria carangi
