Update on my wedding plans...

Recommended Posts

Some of you may know that my wedding plans have changed from what I had originally planned. I will spare you the details and just update everyone with our current plans.


Our first plans were to be married on St. John in the US Virgin Islands in November 2008. Now we will be getting married on Cape Cod in the spring of 2009. My birthday is May 24th which happens to fall on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend in 2009 so I think that might be fun.


We haven't chosen an exact location yet, but Mike and I will be heading down to the Cape with my parents in a couple of weeks to visit some possible sites as well as attend a wedding expo. We will probably have about 150-ish people and it will be a New England Clambake and much to my FMIL's dismay, we will not be having paper plates and napkins, it will be an elegant seaside clambake. :)


Colors will be navy blue, light blue, red and white.


I thought I'd show you what I've been thinking for decor, etc. Tell me what you think and if you have any better ideas:


I have always wanted a chessecake for a wedding cake. I'd like something similar to this, but with fruit on top instead of flowers.




Not sure about flowers yet, but here are some ideas that I like:


I like these colors:



In julep cups:



Maybe in a tablescape like this:

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
