My Wedding Checklist

This past weekend I went to Chicago for my little cousin's wedding and it got me thinking about what my own wedding would be like (not that it's happening anytime soon):

- Spring time wedding, ideally in May

- Either a destination wedding to a warm tropical island with the ceremony on the beach or at
Brookside Gardens in my home state

- Surrounded by all my friends and family members

- Rose petals tossed down the aisle

- All of the bridesmaids in the same dress style and color

- Everyone blowing bubbles after the ceremony

- Beautiful fresh cut flowers (pink & white roses, peonies, stargazers, gerbera daisies) and tons of lit white pillar candles

- 3-tier wedding cake (white cake with strawberry filling and buttercream frosting) and decorated with purple & white orchids

- Twinkling white lights hung from the ceiling

- Really good food at the reception

- Big party atmosphere with lots of fun dancing and drinking (thanks to the open bar)

- Champagne toasts

- Embarrassing picture slideshow of the happy couple growing up

- Milk chocolate fountain with yummy fruit to dip

- Driving away into the sunset in an antique white Rolls-Royce or a cherry red convertible

More to be added later... :)

let me know when you add up the budget for this shindig. That when things like good food and lots of flowers go out the window. :-)
