          10. Do you want/did you have an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding? Small and simple


          11. Vows - traditional or something you make up on your own? traditional. Too much pressure to make them up!

          12. How many layers of cake did you/will you have? It was just one.


          13. Is/was your wedding/reception at a hotel? yes


          14. When did you/will you get married - sunrise, mid-day, sunset? Our ceremony was at 6 PM...the sun set around 7 that day.

          16. Plan every detail down to the napkins or let someone else decide? I am sort of a control freak, so I wouldn't let anyone else plan...I'm also laid back so I didn't plan all the way down to the napkins though. It was a simple wedding.

          27. Who will pay for the bills? Us

          28. Living together: Not before marriage or absolutely before marriage? I told him I wouldn't marry him unless we lived together first! I needed to know we could handle each other :)

            1. How old are you? 28

            2. At what age did you/will you get married? 29

            3. Do you have children? no

            4. Did you think you would marry the person you are with now? Not when I first met him, but I've thought about it for quite some time now.

            5. Were you ever engaged or married to someone other than the person you are with now? no

            6. Do you want a garden wedding, beach wedding, or the traditional church wedding? It's always been the beach- that's why we're here, right?


            7. Where did you/will you get married? Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort, Riviera Maya Mexico

            8. First dance - classic waltz, slow and sexy, or fast and spicy? Not sure yet. I am not sure about everyone watching me dance-I am hoping to have everyone share or first dance with us.

            9. How many guests did you/will you have? We invited everyone and the RSVPs are trickling in. Everyone seems to want to come so we will see. Best guess is 40-50.

            10. Do you want/did you have an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding? I am hoping for simple, but there is still 5 months to go crazy- I hope I don't.

            11. Vows - traditional or something you make up on your own? We are doing a legal ceremony so there is some traditional aspect to it- but fiance really wants to do at least some part talking on our own- we have to figure out how it works.

            12. How many layers of cake did you/will you have? I could care less, whatever is cheapest at the resort (I don't like wedding cake)

            13. Is/was your wedding/reception at a hotel? yes

            14. When did you/will you get married - sunrise, mid-day, sunset? 5:00pm but the sun probably won't set for a few hours after that in the summer in Mexico.

            15. Did you/will you have your reception outdoors or indoors? I am hoping for outdoors- please don't rain.

            16. Plan every detail down to the napkins or let someone else decide? I am trying not to go crazy. I promised myself I wouldn't but it is so so so easy to get caught up in the little details.

            17. How did/will the bride enter? not sure yet, I'm hoping just to appear- I am not great with so much attention on me.

            18. Song to walk down the aisle to: Oh no- another detail to obsess about.

            19. Song to make your exit: And another.


            20. Will you/did you have a solemn ceremony or a light one? I am hoping for light.


            21. At what age did you think you would get married? 30


            22. Who to invite - practically everyone or a select few? Everyone is invited whomever can come can come.


            23. Wedding menu - fine dining or simply delicious? simply delicious- we do not have refined palates. I am still trying to find a way to serve cheeseburgers at the wedding.

            24. Champagne or red wine? whatever they've got.

            25. Honeymoon right after the wedding, awhile after the wedding, or no honeymoon? not sure yet- another thing that needs to be planned. Probably within a week or two.

            26. Was your/will your honeymoon be at a place special to you both or somewhere brand new to you both? NEW

            27. Who will pay for the bills? We will- less cooks in the kitchen.

            28. Living together: Not before marriage or absolutely before marriage? absolutely before marriage- we are going on 5 years living together. I don't think I could have handled the stress of moving in together and being newly married.

            29. Anything else about marriage you'd like to say? Remember why you are doing this when freaking out about napkins and invitation fonts.
