David & Maggie
September 7, 2008

About us:

Dave and I are getting married in North Jersey on September 7, 2008.  We met in May 2006 and have been inseperable since.  We love to travel and have been to many places in the time we've been together. We both love the beach, so what better place to be proposed to than on the beach.  Dave surprised me with the most beautiful ring on September 1, 2007  and we have been planning our special day ever since. Our wedding colors are aqua and red.  I can't wait to be married to the love of my life!!

The Dress:

My dress is a satin drop waist beaded gown with gathers in white.  It's the first, and only dress, I tried on and it fit perfectly. 

 

My Shoes:

These are the shoes I will be wearing.

 

Bridesmaids' Dresses:

The bridesmaids will be wearing a satin strapless ball gown in pool from David's bridal. 

 

The Tux:

My honey will be wearing a tux from Dante's tuxedos. 

 

Groomsmen tuxes:

The groomsmen tuxes will also come from Dante's tuxedo, with a vest in the same color as the bridesmaid dresses.

 

 

The Cake:

We are having a 3 tier square cake in the shape of gift boxes.  It will be a Tiffany blue color, dyed to match the wedding colors with a white bow on top. The filling will be fresh strawberries.

Invitations:

We have photo invites, with a black and white photo.  They are 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and will have a sheer layer on top with the invitation wording.  The entire invitation will be tied with a white ribbon.

 

 

Flowers:

The centerpieces will be gerbera daisies in a small vase.

 

My bouquet will be made of mostly calla lillies and orchids, with some tulips in between. I don't like roses, so I opted for flowers other than the traditional roses. The bridesmaids will have a smaller version of my bouquet.

 

 

We made these ourselves. These will be part of the church decorations:

 

 Favors:

Our favors are "something blue" gift box candles. They come in a cute box with a blue ribbon.

 We are also doing candy apples. We are lucky enough to live a few blocks from one of the biggest candy apple suppliers in the US. 

 

Reception:

These are our table cards. FI made them all by himself. They represent all the places we've been to together:

 These are our menu cards, also created by FI:

 

We are renting table linens in aqua satin from Fabulous Events.  Here's what they will look like, along with a fake version of the centerpiece:

 Here are our napkins and matches. We ordered both from Rex Craft:

Honeymoon:

 We will be going to Europe on our honeymoon. We are flying into Paris, staying there for a couple of days, then renting a car and driving to Bruges, Amsterdam, Munich, Venice and Rome. I was born and raised in Europe and he's only been there once, so it will be nice to show him where I'm from. We are avid travelers and have been to many places and that is our style of travel.  We never stay in one place for long.  Here is a link to our flickr account, where you can see our many travel pics.
