And the wedding fun has officially begun. 2 days baby!
I thought it might be fun, so close to the big day, to post a little wedding survey I found from the amazing Julie
How long did you date before you got engaged?
A little over 3 years. We met in March 2009 and Zach proposed in May 2012.
Did you get the ring you wanted?
I honestly didn’t know what ring I wanted. BUT, if I’m being terribly honest, I do remember thinking “OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT” when he was opening the box. Then I swooned over the beautiful ring when I saw it.
I would have loved it no matter what, I KNOW that. But seriously, Zach did well. He designed it himself, completely custom. Good guy 🙂
Was the proposal a complete surprise?
Yes! Read our engagement story here. . . I didn’t even shower.
Did you cry when he proposed?
Just a little 🙂
Was the proposal romantic or creative?
Absolutely both. It was very thoughtful and VERY Zach and I.
Where do you want to go for your honeymoon?
We’re going to Austria in February! I can’t WAIT!
Are you buying his wedding band for him?
I actually LOVE his band.
It’s a mix of different metals and very unique, just like Zach. 🙂
We went in together and just paid for both of our bands ourselves. So I guess the answer is yes?
Is your wedding band simple or elaborate?
I think it’s very simple. Just a 360 channel set diamond band that matches the band of my engagement ring.
Have you gone over your original wedding budget?
Actually no, but we were given a very nice budget to begin with. AND fewer people than originally anticipated are making it.
What day of the year will your wedding be?
September 7, 2013
What kind of weather?
Hopefully warm and sunny so we have a nice long night outdoors!
Inside or outside?
As outdoors as possible. The ceremony is all outdoors. We’ll be having dinner indoors, but are hopeful for the band and dancing to be back outside.
Time of day?
Evening. 530 ceremony and the reception goes until 1130
Any kind of theme?
Will you serve dinner? Plated or buffet?
We have our guests three options of plated meals that they ordered with their RSVP cards.
What are your wedding day colors?
Coral and Navy.
How many bridesmaids? How do you know them?
Zoe, my maid of honor, I feel like I’ve known forever. She is the definition of good friend and just overall good person. And my running inspiration 🙂
Holly – Zach’s little sister, who I could not be more excited about making my own 🙂
And Jessica – my trusty “wifey” and sidekick through so much of high school and college.
What kind of cake/what will it look like?
We have four tiers with three different types of cake. The main cake being carrot cake. Then two small white cakes with different fillings and one chocolate cake with filling.
What kind of dress will you have/color/material?
My dress is white satin, which is funny because I NEVER would have gone with satin before. I can’t wait to show pictures of it after 🙂
What kind of flowers in your bouquet?
Will you wear your hair up or down?
Is the reception big or small?
A little over 80 people, so I’d say small.
How long is your honeymoon?
2 weeks! WOOOO!
What will you do?
Enjoy each other :). Lots of skiing, eating, exploring Austria and relaxing I hope.
What is the age difference between you and your groom?
1.5 years. I’m 27 and Zach is 28
Have you hired a wedding planner?
HOLY CRAP WERE 48 HOURS OUT!!! THIS IS CRAZY!
