            10. Do you want/did you have an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding? I wanted an an intimate unique wedding.

            16. Plan every detail down to the napkins or let someone else decide? Depends on if I get my wedding planner or not.

            18. Song to walk down the aisle to: Amazing Grace played on violin or cello, it's a surprise for my mom since she used to sing it to me when I was little

            25. Honeymoon right after the wedding, awhile after the wedding, or no honeymoon? FI is planning it, so it'll probably be the week after the wedding. He didn't go for my mini moon idea of a weekend honeymoon and then our longer one a couple months after when everything calms down and we can get more time off of work. Oh well, we'll see.


            26. Was your/will your honeymoon be at a place special to you both or somewhere brand new to you both? Kind of both. We're going to Hawaii which he's never been to and I've been 3 times to Maui but we're going to an island I haven't gone to yet.


            27. Who will pay for the bills? We already have our finances together, and then we both just keep track of when our own bills are due.


            28. Living together: Not before marriage or absolutely before marriage? I wouldn't say absolutely but I think it has been very good for us to live together already.


            29. Anything else about marriage you'd like to say? We're determined to always be challenging each others perspective about our marriage and not lose sight of enjoying being with each other and working towards things together. We come from blended families and we want to do things differently.
