Your Wedding...

200 posts in this topic
I know it's another one of those girly topics, and it might be rather far off for some of us, but what do you girls want your wedding to be like?
Small? Big? What sort of dress would you wear?
Would you get married in a church? or somewhere else?
Pretty much describe your dream wedding. :P

I want to have a big dramatic wedding! With a big poofy dress with a long train that is snow white. I want to get married in a Chapel just because they are so beautiful. I want flowers EVERYWHERE!!! and just a great wedding that is very traditional. Silly, I know. But thats just ME.

I want a small wedding, probably in the church of my husband's choosing (as we'd most likely be doing it near his family since mine is very small). I want a simple, shorter, non bulky cream dress. No tuxes allowed. I find guys much more attractive in nice black suits than tuxes.

My reception would also be fairly small. I'd do brunch (since it's the cheapest, hehe). I want either a champagne or chocolate fountain. Simple table decorations of square glass vase with a few nice branches in water. Cream table clothes with raspberry or red covers and black napkins


yep, that's it

I want an very small wedding. I don't want it to be very expensive. I can do without gobs of decorations because I want mine to be outside. God can do the decorating for me ;)
I would like a semi-puffed out white dress, maybe floor length, maybe knee length. I dunno. I want my bouquet to be daisies.

ps: I already know where I am getting married. It's on a cliff overlooking the ocean. I couldn't ask for anywhere more beautiful

That sounds amazing! What a great idea.

For my wedding, I want it to be medium sized, not anything too small, but I do want a few people to be there.
I want a floor lenghth poofy dress.
I might even wear my mom's wedding dress, that my grandma wore before she did. I think that would be kinda neat.
As for where I want to get married, a church would be my preference, like an old cathedral type church. Either that or maybe the beach.

I hope to have a simple, and classic wedding...it looks like it will take place in the fall next year, but no definite date yet (just our general thought). It's most likely going to be at his church because he started his Christian walk there and is close to so many members. And it's a beautiful church big enough to house all of the guests (I have a LOT of relatives and he has a ton of friends)...
I know I want "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" and "Canon in D" played but not sure on the rest...definitely classical. I love classical.
My friend offered to play the harp for free, she's professional, and that would be awesome.

Nothing extravagent (we're going to be very frugal)...

For the dress....I honestly don't know. Not strapless (1) because I don't really prefer that for me 2) My boobs are so small it wouldn't really be pretty lol), but maybe speghetti strap or a little wider staps. Modest, beautiful, classic...and long. Not poofy.



Oh- and my dad to marry us. He's a pastor and has a license to do that. I think that would be really sweet.

ahhh yes. I have this all planned out. (well, sorta. haha) my grandma was a wedding coordinator and owned a wedding facility up until just recently... so I know everything there is to know about weddings.... (:


The colors will be black, white, and [color=#4B0082]deep purple[/color]. The reception will be at a urban/contemporary styled building, I'm thinking with wood floors and brick walls, and handmade centerpieces on every table. I also loove those lanterns which are popular at weddings. In white, black, and purple?

The cake.. maybe something like these:

[img]http://tenpoundslighter.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/black-ribbon-and-cala-lilies-wedding-cake-687.jpg[/img]
(but with purple flowers)

[img]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b304/buttercatlady/white_with_brown_or_black_henna_des.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.blisstree.com/ouroneheart/files/2007/02/black-and-white-cake.jpg[/img]

The dress.. something pretty plain and silky and flowy and comfortable. No strapless. Those things never work out and the brides my grandma works with always end up being miserable in them all night. But I'm thinking maybe something sleeveless with a v-cut in the front and back, yet not with too much cleavage! o__o maybe like a black or purple bow.. or just all white.

Oh, and I'm lovin' the all-black tux... :wub:
[img]http://chimonique.googlepages.com/TuxExample.jpg/TuxExample-large.jpg[/img]

or with a purple tie like so:

[img]http://i32.tinypic.com/2lu6fz4.png[/img]

Bridesmaid dresses... purple for sure:

[img]http://www.liweddings.com/chat/p/6319525_1.jpg[/img]

Yet I'm thinking something maybe knee-length... and then simple, strappy sandals.

Oh! I almost forgot. All the guys (groom and groomsmen) are wearing classic black/white converse. This is decided:

[img]http://i26.tinypic.com/2a918hf.jpg[/img]

I think that I may even wear black/white converse... haven't decided yet. With a long white dress with a black bow?


Ok. I think that covers almost everything.. :P I love weddings, if you can't tell. Now I only have to find the groom. haha :rolleyes:


btw, those of you girls who love thinking about weddings, you should totally look at some sites like [url="http://www.stylemepretty.com/"]this[/url]. I love looking at the photos from the weddings. They are all so creative and unique.

Well, I don't want to freak my husband out by having it all planned out. There are things that I would LIKE, but it all depends on my man's preferences and the situation regarding the wedding, etc. I'd LIKE to have a white, red, and gold theme. I want to have one red strip of material somewhere on my wedding dress. Like...a sash that goes around my waist and flows behind or something. And I want roses. But that's really as far as I've gotten. haha

And I really want to walk down the aisle to Forever by Kiss. :P

I've had my wedding planned for years. No one to marry yet, but whatever :P

It's going to be in a little chapel out in the country, surrounded by trees. It'll be really small, just our closest friends and family. My dress is undecided, but I'd love a square neckline (they suit me), floor length, white with champagne gold or yellow accents.
That is one of the only parts I don't know about, whether the wedding will be white and yellow, or white and champagne gold. I adore yellow roses..
The bridesmaids will wear either the yellow or the gold, depending on which we (I) choose :P

My dream wedding...

I would love to have my wedding in my back yard, because it is amazing. I would like to have it sometime in late spring, when all the flowers are blooming. I'd like to get hitched under the our arbor that leads to the garden. I prefer a small wedding, close friends and family. I'll probably just have three brides maids (sisters), a ringbearer, and a few flower girls. I love the traditional white gown and tux. Fancy cake, yummy food.
I would like music people can dance to, probably Classical, Jazz, and Christian. Yeahh...I haven't really thought about a lot of the details.

I want to be married in a Church. Theres a reallllyyy old Episcopalian church by my school that is soo gorgeous, so I am thinking there.
My dress will be strapless and sweetheart cut with a corset-esk top and the bottom will be gathered taffeta material.
[img]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e137/bitchgotboom/2honesbusiness.jpg[/img]

My dad and my uncle will walk me down the isle and give me away, and my big brother from Greek life will be waiting at the end to also give me away, as he represents the greek family in my life at school.
my hair will be half up/half down in curls with a tiara.
My nails will be french tipped acrylics.
My boyfriend wants to wear his Dress Blues, and have his groomsmen in suits.
My girls will be wearing knee length strapless dresses in either crimson or black.
[img]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e137/bitchgotboom/s08_81255_2psdxmlcmp-colortop99062A.jpg[/img]

the centerpieces will be as such:
[img]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e137/bitchgotboom/86804-main_Full.jpg[/img]

and the cake will be simple, along these lines
[img]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e137/bitchgotboom/weddingcake3.jpg[/img]

I also want a slideshow playing at the reception before the wedding party arrives of pictures of me and my husband as kids until adults.

I have had this planned out for a long time. My boyfriend is okay with it, since he knows this is my big day that i have wanted for so very long.
But for now, I am just focused on getting it to be next summer so I can get this:
[img]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e137/bitchgotboom/AAAAAitkQmQAAAAAAByuRg.jpg[/img]

(I have had it picked out since I was 16)

and begin planning this shindig :)

I want to be a princess. =D

I'd like to have a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, a corset in back. Slightly trailing behind, but not a wholelot. Kind of bigish on bottom, but not overdoing it. Pure white, please.
I want my hair either mostly up or all the way, with a beautiful tiara.
My makeup will be not natural, but not overdone.
My nails? Probably classic.. frenchh. Can I get Zebra stripes?
I'll probably do something really, really weird with my shoes. Probably purple or something like that. Either that or white. They'll be heels, but not too much.. because John is only a couple inches taller than me.
I want to get married at a large church. Kind of older looking.. Pews and everything. There's this really awesome church that I absolutely loveee but my cousin got married there. And I don't want to copy.
My colors will be deep purple and black. so my bridesmaids will probably end up in strapless dresses, whatever length they want, but I think shorter would be adorable.. and in those colors.
john will probably want a really awesome suit, but I don't really care what he gets. He might want a fedora too... but not during the ceremony. =p
I think I'll want their ties to be purple.
I want my bouquet to be made by my mommy. She's an amazing florist. I'd like white and red roses... but other than that, I have no idea. I want it perfectly rounded, and the stem part to have white ribbon wrapped around it.
I would like my pew decorations to have hanging ribbon, white and purple, a little blake, and elaborate bows, with daisies or roses. I like Daisies. =DDD
I don't know if I'll do the candle thing.
I'd like a pearl necklace.
No earrings, most likely.
Maybe a matching pearl bracelet.
My reception, I would like either a live band to play, or like, something where I can choose alllll the music. I don't like classic wedding music.
I want the chair covers to be white and purple.
There are going to be rose petals on the tables, white rose petals.
The centerpieces, I want kind of modern, but classic at the same time.
My head table will be GORGEOUS. Especially with the flowers. Let's spoil people there.
My cake, I would like.. I cant exactly describe it... It's white frosting, with elaborate black detail on it.
It will be the best day of my freakin' life.
=D

Haha, yes, it may sound lame, but I think about this a lot.

I want an old church for my wedding that is full of people. When I walk down the aisle, I want Canon in D playing. My dress, I hope, will be very elegant. Lots of lace and fabric that trails after me. My bouquet will be of roses. When I'm halfway down the aisle, I want my dad to walk me to the altar. My bridesmaids will wear a pale pink but the maid of honor will wear fuschia.

The reception will be really fun. I don't want to go all out with the food and decorations and stuff, but I want the dancing party to be lively. I would want to dance with my dad and then my husband. The theme song to "Titantic" would be the song I'd dance to with my husband, even though my mom tells me that would remind our guests of dying lol.

But yeah, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. I'm excited!
