    I've only been actually planning for maybe a week or two! However, I've been dreaming of a wedding since I was a little girl, so I am very certain about what my wedding will look like and include. I am also an avid Pinterest user Smiley laugh

    Answer all of these questions:

    1. How many guests will you have? Approx. 130

    2. What type of reception do you want? Vintage/rustic

    3. What day of the week are you getting married? Ideally Saturday but if the price is significantly cheaper, we will choose a Friday.

    4. What type of dress or suit do you want? Dress - champagne and lace! Not sure about tux just yet.

    5. How will you remember your big day? Lots of pictures! I went to a wedding show a few years ago and saw some of the videos and thought I had to have one! But at this point I don't think I want/need the added cost.

    6. How many days left until you get married? Not sure of the days...but just over 1.5 years

    7. How will you decorate for your big day? Flowers/lights/lace. Colours will prob be grey, rose pink and either navy or burgundy, haven't decided!

    8. Limited bar or open bar? Hopefully open bar unlimited but it will depend on cost.

    9. Will you get married at night or during the day? Ceremony early afternoon and reception in the evening.

    For our wedding of about 60-80, we are having a modest budget of $15,000. Most of that money will be spent on food and drink (includes the cost of the venue, tables, chairs, linens, table ware, glassware since the venue is a restaurant) coming in at around $10,000. We want to provide drinks to our guests the whole night through!

    1. 60-80

    2. Sit-down, plated meal (3-course)

    3. Saturday

    4. A-line, sweetheart or deep-V neckline with lace sleeves, rented tux

    5. Photography only, no videographer.

    6. 565 days to go!

    7. I have an industrial-looking space. I will have lots of DIY projects: geometric wire sculptures (made with floral wire, plastic straws, spray paint) each featuring either a tealight candle or one-two peonies, 3D geometric shapes made by hand by printing the 3D shape nets on coloured paper, matte painted mason jars, some with baby's breath arrangements, some with candles, long garlands of nagi or cocculus with baby's breath for the length of our rectangular tables, DIY backdrop (Ideas: lots of ribbons tied onto a wooden rod or string, scallopped tissue paper wall, chalkboard painted wooden board, DIY wax paper backdrop, etc), DIY wedding arch (either a garland or drapery over DIY copper pipe/PVC pipe arch), ladder wedding favour display, old window frame and circular hoop photo displays, DIY chalkboard and wooden signs, etc.

    8. Host bar (2 glasses of wine per guest at dinner, budgeting for 3-4 drinks per person during the dancing part)

    9. We will get married in the evening (5:00pm). Short ceremony, cocktails, dinner and dancing immediately to follow.

    Hi Nelly Smiley heart

    I love the two ideas! It really depends what you want to go for!

    What part of the men's suits would you like to coordinate?

    Do you want them to have all the same suit and accessories?

    Do you want your groomsmen to have the same suit?

    You could also make the groomsmen boutonniere match your bridesmaids corsage or bouquet?

    Thanksgiving is going well, there's 70 of us coming to my future parents in law for lunch.

    We're planning on discussing the mens suits, we're trying to figure out if they should co ordinate with their partners, or should the men match with each other?
