Yup, it is. We were visiting M''s brother in Paris and he drove us up there for 1 day! He''s a diplomat so he drove fast, but we didn''t get to spend a lot of time there. Went shopping, took a boat ride on the canal, had mussels, fries and beer for dinner, then drove back to Paris. We liked it, just didn''t get to throughly enjoy it. The chocolates, however, were fabulous!

OK, then that''s freaky. I have a pic of myself there from 4 years ago...the buildings look similar (and the order of them), but the colors of the buildings and statue do not match up!

Your Name / Fiance''s Name: Liz and J.

What you do: I''m a PhD student; he''s an EE

Where you''re both from: Virginia

How you met: In college, through mutual friends

How long you''ve been together: 3 years 3 months

Engagement date: May 5, 2006

Wedding date: May 12, 2007

Wedding location: Falls Church, Virginia

# of guests: 90-100

Wedding colors: Colors that complement FI''s kilt. It''s turning out to be predominantly shades of blue and cream, with some green.

Your Dress: Strapless, mermaid silouette with lace towards the bottom.

Your Flowers: Peonies, freesia, ranunculus, with blue thistle and blue muscari accents

Your BM dresses: Navy floorlength Watters. If I can get it together, tartan sashes.

Flowergirl dress: N/A

FI''s wearing his tartan, his BM is wearing his family''s tartan, another groomsmen is wearing a military tartan, and the remaining groomsman and one usher are wearing the Scottish National tartan.

First Dance Song: N/A

Wedding Cake: I''m a chocolaholic but FFIL won''t eat it so we''re going to ask if we can do 2 layers, one chocolate and one not. It will probably have white frosting, because all of the cotton candy that we''re going to have on the cake table will provide more than enough color. I haven''t found any one design I have to have, so I think I''m going to give our baker a lot of creative leeway. I trust her.

Wedding Favors: CDs with lots of family recipes from both my family and my future in-laws, if our respective moms can get it put together. Otherwise, we''re skipping them.

Honeymoon: St. Lucia. We''ve given FI''s parents a short list of resorts, and they''re going to reserve us rooms at one of them. After seeing JCrow''s pics, Ladera is on the list too.

Your Name / fiance's Name: Lyndz/B.




What you do: For now a whole bunch of random unorganized stuff ... job hunting b/c of it




Where you're both from: MA




How you met: Washing dishes at the university dishroom




How long you've been together: 5.5 years




Engagement date: January 13, 06




Wedding date: Nov. 24 07




Wedding location: Boston




reception location/ decor: Traditional ballroom; glassed atrium; ivory tablecloths with ivory lace overlays, bm bouquets for the atrium (they'll be ivory roses with iridencent dust/sparklies on them); blue hydrangea and ivory rose centerpieces...I had my heart set on silvery blue tablecloths under the ivory lace overlays but the woman never sends me the swatch (I've asked her 2x now) so I'm feeling like she's unreliable...we'll also have an xmas tree set up with silver garland, white lights and dark and light blue ornaments.




type of reception/food: Prime Rib/ Chic cordon bleu; hor d'oeuvres will be fresh fruit platters, cheese and crackers and this AWESOME gourmet bread that they serve with different flavored butters. I figured we're serving an expensive 4 course meal, so we'll offer a more dainty cocktail hour food choice.


# of guests: 150




Wedding colors: Ivory, silvery blue, dark blue, silver




Your Dress: TBD...I need to really get on it though




Your Flowers: Light blue hydrangea, ivory roses, stephanatois with rhinestone centers




Your BM dresses: black tea length with champagne colored sash (I know champ's not in my "colors" but I liked it on them


Flower girl dress: N/A

Bridal jewelery: Chandelier earrings, large bracelet TBD (to cover tattoo on inside of wrist)


Groom's and GM tuxes: Black tux with champagne ties to match the girls (something's gotta match that random champagne!)




First Dance Song: Debating b/w Faith Hill "baby you belong" and Norah Jones "Come away with me"




Wedding Cake: 3 tiers by MONTILLIOS!!! one raspberry infused chocolate, lemon infused white and then maybe carrot cake for the top...I know it's wierd but I LOVE carrot cake!




cake topper: possibly snowflakes, but possibly none




Wedding Favors: silver snowflake placecard holders that pictures can be held in. If I have extra money, hot cocoa wrapped up in clear celophane with marshmellows at the top




Get away car: Prob my bro's car!

Honeymoon: Not set in stone...we prob will not plan till after the wedding b/c FI is in school (PhD) and will have to return right after.
