      1. How old are you? 30


      2. At what age did you/will you get married? 30

      3. Do you have children? Nope, not yet.


      4. Did you think you would marry the person you are with now? Not when we first met (I had just gotten over a bad breakup so wasn't really in that right mindset). But a year and a half later when we connected again, it was pretty clear there was something special there :)


      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? The garden gazebo is right beside the beach so it's the best of both worlds.

      7. Where did you/will you get married? Grand Palladium Bavaro, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.


      8. First dance - classic waltz, slow and sexy, or fast and spicy? Not sure if we're going to even do the bride-groom first dance. If we do, it'll be slow and sexy.


      9. How many guests did you/will you have? 43 people are booked.

      10. Do you want/did you have an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding? Combination of both - a happy medium.

      11. Vows - traditional or something you make up on your own? We're doing the legal ceremony so it's fairly traditional. We're adding our own personalized sand ceremony at the end.


      12. How many layers of cake did you/will you have? 3

      13. Is/was your wedding/reception at a hotel? We're privatizing the beach restaurant at the resort for the dinner and reception.

      14. When did you/will you get married - sunrise, mid-day, sunset? Mid-afternoon...we had no choice about this due to the judge's schedule. It was either that or 10 am :P


      15. Did you/will you have your reception outdoors or indoors? Indoors but the restaurant is open-air.

      16. Plan every detail down to the napkins or let someone else decide? My fiance and I decided some things and the rest we've left to the WC.


      17. How did/will the bride enter?  From a garden pathway to the gazebo. My Mom and Dad are walking with me.


      18. Song to walk down the aisle to: The Spanish trio band will be playing.


      19. Song to make your exit: We're not really having a formal exit...there will be champagne and the cake at the gazebo right after the ceremony.


      20. Will you/did you have a solemn ceremony or a light one? Light and happy :)


      21. At what age did you think you would get married? I always wanted to get married when I was 30, just thought it was the perfect age. Low and behold it's worked out that way, lol.

      22. Who to invite - practically everyone or a select few? We invited almost everyone but only about half are able to come (which is still more than we expected!).


      23. Wedding menu - fine dining or simply delicious? Combination of both.


      24. Champagne or red wine? Both along with white wine, beer and probably some fruity tropical drinks at the reception afterwards!

      25. Honeymoon right after the wedding, awhile after the wedding, or no honeymoon? We are staying an extra week but my fiance refuses to call it a honeymoon because he wants us to go to Vegas for our 1 year anniversary/honeymoon the year after, lol!


      26. Was your/will your honeymoon be at a place special to you both or somewhere brand new to you both? New but still special :)


      27. Who will pay for the bills? My fiance and I.


      28. Living together: Not before marriage or absolutely before marriage?  Before...for me, I can't imagine doing it any other way.

       

      29. Anything else about marriage you'd like to say?  Less than 2 months to go! Can't wait!!!
