Knottie of the Week: None! So let's play a game!

I don't have anyone listed this week.  (If you haven't please PM me your wedding date so I can add you to the list so we can celebrate your wedding week!)

Soooo... let's play the question game... I say a question, you answer it and then post the next question:

How many people in your bridal party?

    Red!  I love them.   

    What is one thing (item, detail, etc.) you wish you could have at your wedding but can't?  (I'm dealing with budget constraints right now and had to cut the photobooth :-( )

    Here's my dress:

    I'm altering it so that the straps are tank straps instead of a halter.

    I'm most excited to see FI's face when I walk down the aisle (and to be husband and wife of course!).

    the only thing i have gone over budget on(so far!) is my DJ and I am so glad that we are. My FI only wanted control of picking the DJ and i love to see how excited he gets when he talks about it?

    When you started dress shopping, did you find it easier or more diffucult than you anticipated (i am a total shopper and i am finding it so difficult to find a dress :( )?

    Easier and then more difficult. I went shopping a few times with 2-3 people and found the perfect dress. Then to buy it I brought the BMs, MOH, mom, and FMIL. The first dress I put on was the one I really wanted. As soon I stepped out mom and FMIL started complaining how it was too plain! After that it turned into making me try on tons of different dresses that I didn't even like. It got to the point that I had 2 or 3 consultants apologizing to me in the dressing room. I did finally get the original dress though.

    Why did you pick your ceremony venue?

    We are getting married at the Church I grew up in and my brother and sister were both married in. It has a lot of great memories and this will just add to it!

    Our ceremony is at the church that I grew up attending with my family :) I was baptized, received my First Communion and Confirmation at the same church and it really means a lot that FI and I are going to be married there!

    How/why did you choose your reception venue?
  • Options
    edited December 2011
    We knew of maybe 4 or 5 wedding venues in our area.  Very quickly we saw that there would be 2 extremes, venues that were just really not nice enough (we have a pretty tight budget) and, others that were really nice but would be a HUGE splurge that we couldnt make.

    In the end we ended up going with the first place we looked at.  Its right in the middle between not nice enough and way too expensive.  It was a stretch for us, but we liked the room, the owner was pretty accomdating, its in a Suburb we like, and we just liked the idea of our first big party as husband and wife being there.

    What is your first dance song and does it have any special meaning to the both of you?
