    What are your wedding colors?
    green and pink

    Do you have a theme?
    nope, not really.  We had our wedding at a Victorian house so we tried to keep it flowing with the same style.

    What are your cake flavors?
    Our cake was a combo of vanilla sour cream cake with chocolate filling, chocolate pound cake with white chocolate filling, and our top layer was a mixture of both cakes.

    What color are your shoes?
    Champagne/gold

    How much are you DIYing?
    I did absolutely no DIY.  My MIL DIYed my card box and that was about it.

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    We went to Maui.  DH actually had a dream about it yesterday and I tried to convince him that we should go back soon! *fingers crossed*

    My fiance has planned it as a surprise. He is going to announce it at the reception!

    Black, Burgundy & Very minimal white

    What are your cake flavors?
    We still have not picked our cake, but we know we want red velvet :)

    Burgundy

    How much are you DIYing?
    We are doing a pretty good amount:
    STD's
    Place Cards
    Water Bottle Labels
    Table #'s
    Signs for Candy Buffet
    Reserved Signs
    Thank You Cards
    I know there is MORE but I can't remember right now!

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    Initially FI wanted to go to NYC for New Years and see the ball drop. Since I got the wedding I thought he should pick a location for the honeymoon, but deep down I've always wanted to go a Tropical and he knew that so to get more for our buck we are considering going to the Bahamas.

    Nothing is set in stone but I think the Bahamas is a HUGE posivitely now

    Mellie- a surprise honeymoon would make me so nervous.  Is he at least going to tell you if it's going to be hot or cold?  

    Qeumiras- I put the "theme" in there thinking specifically of you Wink

    We are not leaving on the honeymoon right away. It will be delayed. I am not nervous. We have talked about a lot of locations. We want to go everywhere! :) The one rule he had was, we could not go to Hawaii! We have already been there.

    He didn't really surprise me with the proposal, so he wanted to do this for me. I think it is fun. And, it is one less thing I have to plan!

    What are your wedding colors?

    I think of it more of a palette: Lavender, Purple, Ivory, Gold and Dark Red.  I ended up having to add in silver since the embroidery on my dress is silver.

    Do you have a theme? 

    Reception has an enchanted forest theme.

    What are your cake flavors?

     Lemon ginger, chocolate, pink champagne with rasberry filling, and tiramisu

    What color are your shoes?

     
    I wanted purple, I got ivory instead(too late to change--I am happy with them because they are comfortable and they match my dress).

    How much are you DIYing?

    As much stuff as possible.

    STDs
    Invites
    Menus
    Programs
    Flowers
    Photo Montage
    Guest book 

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?

    Our new house.  We were going to go to Europe, but we decided between going some place nice for a few weeks versus living some place nice for many years.   Europe can wait until we rebuild our savings.

    Great idea, jagore!

    What are your wedding colors?
    Deep sea/peacock blue (not teal, not navy...somewhere in between?),  with ivory, light pink, chocolate brown accents.

    Do you have a theme?
    Not really a theme, but we are incorporating elements of science/chemistry, since my fiance is a chemist and the wedding is at the Athenaeum at Caltech. Our centerpieces will use chemsitry glassware (flasks, beakers, etc) as the vases, and we'll use different elements of the periodic table as table names.
    What are your cake flavors?
    Chocolate with raspberry and ganache, vanilla with strawberries and cream cheese, chocolate with mocha mousse. I can't wait!

    What color are your shoes?
    Ivory

    How much are you DIYing?
    Not much...guest book, STD's, that's about it. Oh, I glued the invitations to paper backing? That doesn't really count.

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    Maui for 8 nights! We just booked this week, I am so excited!

    What are your wedding colors?
    Baby blue, tan, sage green, white, and grey (sort of a pallette)
    Do you have a theme?
    No.  We are getting married in our hometown so we tried to use as many local vendors as possible  (I joke that the theme is "Claremont") and we are playing off of the look of our venue by incorporating a lot of succulents - very foothills/desert looking.
    What are your cake flavors?
    Lemon with lemon curd filling.  Yum!
    What color are your shoes?
    Blush pink with a gold sheen.  I heart them.
    How much are you DIYing?
    More than I expected: the chuppah, STDs, programs, table numbers, escort cards, reserved signs, direction signs, petal cones, card box, guest book, OOT booklets.  I also bought all of the vases for the tables.
    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    Paris!!

    Table numbers, names, favor tags, guest book,

    crnota- I can't wait to see what your tables look like.  I've never seen flasks and beakers as centerpieces.  I think this is a great idea!

    Thanks, Jagore....I'm excited about seeing it at the floral trial!

    Since coming up with that idea, I have actually seen several blogs and photo shoots incorporating glassware as vases....so I guess my idea wasn't THAT original. :P  But I still think it will be cool (and new to everyone at the wedding).

    I'll be sure to share pics of the big day!
