Entertaining is my creative fun.
Family is my heart.
Family, friends sitting around the dinner table celebrating life with laughter and love, music and food brings me joy.
I believe that a wedding is a commitment of love between 2 people and God.
But I also believe in celebrating life.
We don't take time to do that in this country.
So our marriage is a beautiful opportunity to gather those we love and share our moment with them.
I like a theme as a starting point, whether it is a color, a song, a photo, whatever.
It gives a direction for decor, food, etc. and all the extras that you may want to include.
I am organizing all my ideas and my fiance then will help choose what he loves.
He is my priority, so there will be a few surprises for him.
My dress is simple and sophisticated so burlap and mason jars would not work, nor would pink and lace for his tastes.
Because marrying him is so important to me, I want it to be so special, I want teary eyes & passionate words, I want my daughters to see what it is when a man truly loves you, I want him to feel how grateful I am to have found him. This is what matters.
But that doesn't mean we can't have a killer dinner party full of fun and memories to celebrate the most important day of our lives.
So....ideas that you have seen that wowed you?
Thank you all, every answer has given me something to consider.
