We're likely doing backyard wedding. Our backup plan is renting a VFW hall... there is one in our state that is in a repurposed old church... very beautiful inside!!! We are budget-conscious and very much into as much DIY as possible... to have it at a traditional venue (one that requires catering, etc.) woul d be very restricting to us.

No final decisions have been made, but we're looking at guest ranches in Wyoming and Montana. We're looking to have a small ceremony. We want to rent out the ranch and see if we can combine the wedding and honeymoon. We're kinda country folk and like outdoor activities and horses so we thought that would be more fitting for us. We havent set a date because I think the venue will have to determine our date, to a certain degree.

When you dream it might come true, so when you dream, dream big.

We have set the date for 10-22-2011 a week before halloween(my fiancés idea). We both live in iowa and wanted someplace romantic since our theme is Enchanted Evening. My fiancé' had been to his brother's wedding at the place we choose , and said it was so romantic. We had discussed getting married outside by a lake and this place has just that. We are getting married at Jester Park Lodge in Granger , Iowa. The place is breath taking and so is the view of the lake, if it rains we will married inside by the fireplace.

Well we decided on a date and place (sort of) May 7, 2010. And it'll be in Florida on THE BEACH!! i originally gave the idea but hubby was hesitant, and unsure. We hadn't talked about it in a long time (ANY wedding stuff) then he brought up rings, so i figured "Perfect timing" and chimed in about date year place. He confirmed what we said about date, then said why wait and do it next year! And then said some place warm and NICE!! YAHOO!! so I'm getting ready to start my planning and what not. Any suggestions? past or present will help...

Hi Everyone, This is my first post here and I thought I would answer this question first. My name is Mehgan and I live in St.Paul, MN. I'm 34 years old and "mom" to 4 cats. I'm getting married in September. My husband to be is Hassan. We are planning on getting married at Masjid At-Tawfiq in Minneapolis, it is a mosque(as we are both Muslim) that caters more to the East African community. Hassan is from Somalia. We both want something very small and simple. We plan on having my parents, about 4-5 of my closest friends and he will have about the same of his friends and family. His parents won't be able to attend as they still live in Somalia. It will be sad without them. Afterwards we will go to dinner with my Mom and Dad and friends. Very simple I know, but it seems perfect to both of us. :) The biggest thing I have to do is figure out what color/pattern of abaya(dress) and hijab(hair covering)I will wear...that's the fun part! The best part is that I finally found a guy who accepts me for who I am and does not try to change me and loves me....still kind of floored by that because I have been hurt quite a bit in past relationships/dating. I've been muslim for 6 years and had a bit of wild past to put behind me with tattoos and everything and Hassan came into my life when I had completely given up on finding someone who would love me and treat me so well and who I can have tons of fun with and who loves my 4 cats, lol. And for the first time in my life, I feel short, lol, because I am not short, I am 5'8....but Hassan is 6 foot 8 inches tall. He listens quite well, especially when I say "honey DUCK!" when he goes through a door or under a tree, lol. I've never met a kinder man who just wants a wife to adore and love and take care of and respects me and my friends and family to the utmost degree. I'm still go up and pinch him and say "honey are you for real?" and he pinches me back and say "my love are you for real?" and then we laugh. It is amazing to have someone who makes such a huge difference in your life and it amazes me more that he feels the same way about the affect I have on his life. I keep repeating this because A. it is 637am and B. been through the ringer with relationship in the last 13 years. Repeat OFF. I hope you all have the wedding you dream of and enjoy a beautiful life together. I am brand new to SparkPeople and bear with me getting used to the site and I hope to post more frequently. Mehgan

-Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

We're having our ceremony and reception at Federation Hall here in Waterloo.

It's amazing. the pictures do not do it justice. Very modern and contemporary... suits our style perfectly! It was built to be a martini lounge/nightclub, so the sound and lighting systems are AMAZING. It has a disco ball and everything!!

http://weddings.feds.ca/

The place doesn't need it at all, but we're paying a fortune for decor. We're having big tall centerpieces and a huge ceiling canopy with a crystal chadelier.

My wedding's a bit different...I'm getting married on a cruise. The ceremony will take place before the ship leaves port so we can have guests who decide not to sail with us attend the wedding, and there is a reception after the ceremony (plus one could argue a 7-day long reception after that!). The cruise line takes care of nearly every detail, we just have to arrange transportation and get the attire figured out and that sort of thing. The whole thing is going to end up costing about $6000 if that.

Our wedding has finally been decided on for the Embassy Suites. Its all inclusive so the ceremony and reception will be held there. For a wedding of about 60 guests its roughly $4500.00 less if all don't show.

we are getting married at the aqaurium at the beach here in eastern nc. I am so excited, it's very low lighting so it's romantic and we haven't spend a fortune on decorations because the beautiful fish are enough decorations so we could use that money elsewhere

Hi!! We are getting married at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle, NY. It is a beautiful catering hall in the suburbs of New York. They have a beautiful chapel upstairs, the cocktail hour will be in a separate room downstairs and the reception will be in a separate ball room adjacent to the cocktail room.

It's one stop shopping!! Our wedding is also on a Friday night so we thought it best to have it all in one place.

Our wedding and reception is at the same place. It is called the Topsfield Commons in Topsfield, MA. It is a large historic building built in the 1800's completely restored and renovated. It used to be a church and then a dance hall and finally a function facility specializing in weddings.

Our ceremony will be set up in the grand ballroom, then everyone will go downstairs to a large living area with marble floors, fireplaces and cozy furniture for cocktail hour. Think of a grand foyer with a living room. Then while the guests are down on the first floor, we will be doing pictures on the top floor and the staff will be 'flipping' the room over into our reception. Then everyone will come back up for dinner and dancing. We decided to do it this way because we chose a Friday night and it is easier than people going from church to reception.

Here is the link:

www.topsfieldcommons.com/


We havent decided on a honeymoon location yet.

My wedding it at Spearfish Indian Springs Gazebo, It is a private park that is part at the spearfish parks. It is so pretty it has a small creek running behind the gazebo with a waterfall.

Our reception and the cocktail hour will be held at the Historic Franklin Hotel. It is a hotel that was built in 1903 and is beautiful inside and out. The place has been refurbished but everything from the carpets and crystal chandeliers are authentic. We our having the reception in the ball room down stairs. Everything is provided plus they will set up my decorations and centerpieces.

We are having the honeymoon in Aruba for a week with 2 days in New York.

If you've never been there you cant imagine how it feels, if you have you cant imagine how it doesn't....

What is your venue? We live in WA state so we chose The Tracy Castle for our venue. It is a beautiul Mansion in Buckly WA. They certainly make you feel like a princess from the moment you choose them!

They do just about everything which frees me up for those details for the wedding that there are so many of. But I don't have to worry about flowers, baker, photography, videography, food, etc... it was all discussed and chosen in one afternoon. And might I add that was one first class afternoon!
