    Default OT - Getting to Know You QOTW 5/23

    Sorry! Spaced it on Friday. The weeks are going by way too fast all of the sudden.

    Tell us about your wedding to your DH (where were you married, how big, dress, all of the deets.) (Pictures also welcome!)

    If you aren't married but would like to be someday, what would your dream wedding be?

    I was married 9 years ago on Wednesday! We had a medium sized wedding with about 200 people in attendance. We had seven brides maids and groomsmen. I had a white horse drawn carriage with a beautiful white horse. My dress was white with lots of lace and was sleeveless.

    Bonita, sounds beautiful!

    We were married by a CO state magistrate in an outdoor ceremony at a venue up in the mountains. I wore a strapless white dress (fairly simple, not a lot of beading or lace) and DH looked awesome in his tux. We had 5 bridesmaids/groomsmen and a flower girl. Our colors were red, black, and white, so I just my bridesmaids pick a long black dress of their choosing in hopes they would be able to wear it again. The ceremony was pretty fast since we are not religious, but we did have DH's mom read a passage that she chose from the Torah, and my mom read a passage that she chose from the Bible, and DH also stomped on the glass and everyone yelled Mazel Tov.

    The reception was pretty typical - dinner and dancing and all the wine and beer you could drink. We did NOT do the Chicken Dance. I hate the Chicken Dance. Our wedding cake was chocolate with chocolate filling. Nothing too fancy, but I think everyone had a good time. We had about 120 people.

    Alissa! Congratulations!!

    Our wedding was very simple. There were about 150 people, after the ceremony we had a afternoon tea-type reception with sandwiches, fruit, veggies, etc. My dress was plain, white satin with a small amount of beading. We had three bridesmaids/groomsmen.

    If I were to do it again, I would just get married by a JP and then go on a fabulous holiday...

    My hubby and I were married at the small church we attended at the time. The details weren't important to me and I let my MIL handle most of them. My sister was my MoH but she was young (in her teens) so my best friend did most of her "duties." My husband's best friend was the best man, my brother the ring bearer (he was about 7), and my husband's cousin the flower girl. Our only real color was red, and since it was a February wedding I was able to find tons of decorations for super cheap. Like I said, the details weren't important to me.

    We've been happily married for 7 years now!

    We got a friend of ours ordained over the web, and got married at a local park. We had 11 guests, told our loved ones who lived far away not to fly in for it, because we were doing something very simple. I didn't buy a new outfit but I wore something summery and pretty and some of my grandmother's jewelry. Dave wore shorts, we both had sandals on. I think I had a tank top from J Crew, lol.

    We were married at a local park overlooking the water and then had a pot luck picnic. I wouldn't change one thing about it, it was romantic and beautiful and simple.

    We will be hitting our tenth anniversary in September!

    All of your weddings sound beautiful and romantic in their own way. Laurie, I love the idea of an intimate 11 person wedding/potluck. So simple and lovely.

    Not many details to tell. T and I snuck off to town, went to the courthouse were married by the magistrate and hit the drive through at McDonald's before we headed back home. We didn't even know who our 2 witnesses were, they were just two lovely ladies who worked in the treasurers office of the courthouse. Not a single person knew we were even thinking about getting married until after we had already said our do's.

    We had our wedding planned, I was about to send the deposit off to the beautifulreception venue we had chosen when we had been home, we had arrnged with the minister of the church the works, then hubby had back surgery scheduled for 3 weeks before our wedding date. We had to move everything and ended up having the wedding 4 days after Christmas, the reception venue jacked up the price so we had to rearrange the whole thing. The church I really wanted was $750 so I had to choose another one, my dress was bought off ebay as were my flowers, we had a groomsman pull out about 6 weeks before because his wife was due to have a baby right around our wedding date, a bridesmaid pulled out about the same time because a relative became really sick but in the end we had a good day.

    Now pictures, none of these are professional ones (not that our professional ones were fancy either).

    Since ours was a 2nd marriage for both of us we kept things small. We wanted to do a ceremony for the kids mostly.

    We did the ceremony and dinner at the Faculty Club at the Ohio State University. We had wanted to do the ceremony outside but the weather didn't cooperate.

    I wore a simple dress with an empire waste. The kids looked fabulous - the boys in their suits and my DD in a sweet little dress. Little did everyone know we had a surprise little bun in the oven! I found out just a couple of weeks before that I was expecting our last little surprise! A perfect way to bring our two families together.
