    When we went on a walk at night and stopped at an empty parking ramp, we walked up to the top, and ended up dancing under the stars. It was literelly a perfect moment!

    Where are you taking a honeymoon? 

    Probably Sanibel Island in FL

    What was your favorite registry item?

    Roasting pan

    What is your favorite date you have had with FI?

    Never really had an actual date with FI

    How many showers did you have?

    0

    1 MOH, 2 Junior Bridesmaids, 1 Flower Girl, 1 BM, 3 groomsmen

    What has been the most stressful thing about wedding planning?

    Finding a place to get married.  We have to push the wedding back several months because of it.

    Where are you taking a honeymoon?
    No idea yet.  I told FI that's it's going to be out of the country and not Mexico.  He wants Italy/Greece.  I want something we can afford.  Carribean maybe.

    What was your favorite registry item?
    Haven't registered yet.  It'll probably be dishes or pots and pans, though.

    What is your favorite date you have had with FI?
    His band played a show up in Lutsen a couple months after we started dating.  We were glued to each other for 3 straight day, and they were AMAZING!

    How many showers did you have?
    None yet.  Probably won't have any unless FI's family decides to throw us one.  I was engaged a few years ago and had a big ole shower with my entire family.  I returned all the gifts when the engagement ended, but for some reason I can't bring myself to have another shower with my family.  I can't see it going over very well.  Plus they're all out of town, so I don't know that it will even come up.

    Is FI allowed exotic dancers at his bachelor party?
    No.

    What is your favorite wedding blog?
    Don't have one.

    How big is your bridal party?
    6 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, 1 flower girl, 1 ring bearer

    What has been the most stressful thing about wedding planning?
    Money.  Every time I want to look into a vendor, FI has to "crunch numbers" again, even though we have a set budget that I've been sticking to.  So frustrating!

    What has been the most stressful thing about wedding planning? Initially it was dealing with my mom who wanted us to have an up north hometown Catholic ceremony while I wanted to get married in the cities (and don't care about religion) because this is our home now. Now I sometimes worry about budget/money, even though deep down I know we will have more than enough to pay for it.

    1. Hawaii the big island, at Hilton Waikeloa VIllage
    2. Our Dyson (the one for animals) even though we have a smaller dyson already. Either that or the bedding.
    3. One of the best dates we had was going to opening day at Target Field in 2010. We went to the game and then stayed at a hotel downtown and went out for dinner. It was great.
    4. No idea if I'm having any. That's up to other people to decide.
    5. I don't really care if he does, TBH. I think they are doing a party bus so if they do anything it would likely be a strip club. He isn't really into that stuff so I'm not worried even if the GMs take him there.
    6. I don't have one.
    7. 4 BM, 1 MOH, 1 Best Man, 5 GMs, 1 FG
    8. FIguring out the budget and which vendors to choose.

    Where are you taking a honeymoon?
    Don't know yet.  We'll decide after the wedding.  Since I work in a union we bid for vacation based on seniority, so we don't even know when we'll get to go yet. 

    What was your favorite registry item?
    Like everyone else has said...the Dyson animal hair.  My dog is a master shedder.  But I'm also excited for the china, it shares my name:  Lisette :0)

    What is your favorite date you have had with FI?
    Hmmmm probably the Blue Man Group concert, that was fun

    Is FI allowed exotic dancers at his bachelor party?
    I'd prefer if he didn't but I'm not "forbidding" it.  I just think strippers are nasty.
