Wedding Survey

I saw this survey on fellow PW bride, Aroma's bio and thought it was adorable and fun to do.
So I'm including it in my bio as well.


How old are you both?            I am 25 and FI is 24, but on wedding date he will be 25 too.

Do you have any pets?            No, not at the moment, but we think in one year when we get our own home we will have a cute dog (a Labrador or a German Longhair – it is a Hunting dog race


Was the proposal a complete surprise?          Yes, a little bit – we were on holiday last year and I have suspected on this :o)


Will the wedding guests be "balanced?"         Yes it is all balanced – we will have 137 guests.


What are some traditions you're keeping at your wedding?               Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Dance, bouquet toss, Cake cutting, something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe.




Are you buying his wedding band for him?                No, we bought our wedding bands together at a very good jeweler in Ibbenbüren.


What is one thing about your FI that drives you nuts?           Mhhh, let me think about… After the shower he always walks with still wet feet on the carpet in the bedroom - I get upset every time. Sometimes he even makes it extra to annoying me - mean, right? And he always "forgot" his boxers on the bathroom floor. Typical man I think :o)




What are you most looking forward to about being married?             Finally making it official, we've been together for a very long time (eight years) and he is the love of my life. I adore him and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him. He is so lovely!




Inside or outside?       Inside for the ceremony and the reception.



List anything you dislike.        unfriendly people, rain, horror movies, the color black, and bad food


How many people will be there?         137 + - 5 people – till now we haven’t get back all RSVP.

Time of day?               Ceremony begins at 15:30 pm and the reception directly after the ceremony. I think at 17:15 pm and then we make party till the next morning.




Wedding Theme?           romantic, elegant, exceptionally


How many bridesmaids?         In Germany it is no tradition to have bridesmaids. The bridal couple only have a Maid of Honor and a best man. My MOH is my twin-sister Isabell




What kind of cake / what will it look like?       We will get a 4 tier cake on a stairs-stand (my brother had built it). Four different favors -> chocolate cake, Baumkuchen, raspberry mascarpone and Black forest gateau. The chocolate cake and Baumkuchen will have chocolate icing and the both others will have fondant icing. Every cake will decorate with a real red rose bouquet and with dots on the site.



What kind of dress will you have / color/material?                 My dress is a Pronovias gown, style “Malaga”. I love it so much, it is so romantic and totally me. All over with Spanish lace and fortunately no BLING on it - not even a pearl. Best choice!!!
My veil is custom made by Candi Merle of Crowning Glory Designs. It is a hip length veil with Spanish lace all over the edge. It matches my dress perfectly.
