    1. How old are you? 27

    2. At what age did you/will you get married? 28

    3. Do you have children? not yet!

    4. Did you think you would marry the person you are with now? Honestly it probably took a few years of dating before I thought about marriage.



    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? Beach wedding.

    7. Where did you/will you get married? Dreams Los Cabos

    8. First dance - classic waltz, slow and sexy, or fast and spicy? It is slow to medium and will probably NOT be very sexy knowing us.

    9. How many guests did you/will you have? 27ish

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

    11. Vows - traditional or something you make up on your own? Traditional, short and sweet please.

    12. How many layers of cake did you/will you have? not sure

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

    14. When did you/will you get married - sunrise, mid-day, sunset? Before sunset- late afternoon

    15. Did you/will you have your reception outdoors or indoors? Outdoors

    16. Plan every detail down to the napkins or let someone else decide? I am planning everything and having fun doing it. Keeping it simple is key for me!

    17. How did/will the bride enter? Walking alone without falling would be preferable.

    18. Song to walk down the aisle to: Its a secret.

    19. Song to make your exit: Not sure yet, probably a Greatful Dead or Bob Dylan tune, I cant decide.

    20. Will you/did you have a solemn ceremony or a light one? light I hope

    21. At what age did you think you would get married? Never pinpointed a certain age, but I think 28 is great, old enough to know a little more about life but still young enough to feel like a young bride, does that make sense?

    22. Who to invite - practically everyone or a select few? select few

    23. Wedding menu - fine dining or simply delicious? simply delicious

    24. Champagne or red wine? Red wine.

    25. Honeymoon right after the wedding, awhile after the wedding, or no honeymoon? NO honemoon, our wedding is our honemoon kind of

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

    27. Who will pay for the bills? We each have our own account and one joint account that we each put x amount of dollars in per week and I handle the bills and pay everything out of that account.

    28. Living together: Not before marriage or absolutely before marriage? Before marriage for sure, we've been living together for 5 years now, its a big adjustment and I'm glad we got that out of the way before married life begins.

    29. Anything else about marriage you'd like to say? Ryan is my bestfriend I dont know a thing about marriage but I do know that married or not we just are truly better people together.
