finalized plans ;) [Nov. 6th, 2005|08:57 pm]
Delp/Thomas Wedding


[mood |busy]
[music |"Somewhere (There's A Place For Us)" from West Side Story]

I have been a very busy little girl lately, so I haven't really had much time to make any plans...thank GOD I've got a long engagement! Here's what we've got so far :)


Our ceremony will be at 11:00 A.M. at First Presbyterian Church in Asheboro, across from the high school, and will be followed by a 12:15 reception at The Exchange Banquet and Meeting Hall on S. Fayetteville St (No pic of The Exchange, sorry)

We have opted for traditional piano during our ceremony, and have chosen nontraditional music. This is our song list for the ceremony:
  • Prelude: "Air on the G String", Bach
  • Prelude: "Wachet Auf", Bach
  • Processional: "Reminiscent Joy", The O'Neil Brothers 
  • Bride's Processional: "Kissing You: Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet (Instrumental)"
  • Ceremony/unity candle:  "Lord's Prayer", Unknown
  • Recessional: "Ode to Joy", Beethoven
  • Still unsure about who will be playing the piano for our ceremony, but we have asked Gary Hunt to be the DJ at our reception. We also have selected "God Blessed the Broken Road" by Rascal Flats for our first dance, which will be sung by one of our good friends. I really want to ask a good friend of mine to sing "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride for my father/daughter dance, if she will do it. We have no clue what to use for our mother/son dance, but are thinking of using either "Mama" by Boys 2 Men, or maybe "Simple Man" the Shinedown version.

Looks as though we are going with Villa Photography for our pictures, because they do beautiful work and have offered us the best pricing. Our photography is most definitely going to be our most expensive vendor, but I'd much rather splurge on our pictures than anything. We'll have those forever- food and flowers will be gone the following day.

We've decided to go with Burge Florist. Our wedding colors are lavendar and sage, so we are using calla lillies, lilacs, and stargazers. In my bouquet, we are using lavendar lillies and pale green stargazers. I am doing a small bouquet for my MOH, and going with a single lilly for each of the girls. The boutonnieres will be a lavendar lilly. We plan to put one arrangement at the altar, with ribbons and sparce flowers on the pews. The church is so pretty, it doesn't need very many  flowers!

For the reception, we have decided to use crystal bud vases (1.43 each at Wal-Mart) and small crystal votive holders with tea lights in them as centerpieces. The bud vases would contain lavendar lillies. This way, they are cheaper than traditional centerpieces, and the candles will look great with the white table cloths and minimal flowers. White linen tablecloths are provided by our reception site, and we can use tulle to decorate the eaves and columns. Very few flowers, but I'm not getting married in a meadow, and I think too many flowers are overkill!

This is my favorite part, don't laugh at me too much. A good friend of my mother and me owns a white Camaro convertible and has offered to drive us, top down, us sitting on the back of the car 'beauty queen in parade style' the one block distance to our reception site! I love it! It isn't too elaborate, it isn't going to cost me a lot of money, and it fits right in with our small town wedding! Jason and I just aren't limo people, and this is perfect for us. If she hadn't offered, we were planning to rent a white convertible and have a friend drive us.

A lady my aunt knows from work makes wonderful cakes. She made one of the three cakes at my high school graduation party!! She has offered to make a basic three tiered cake for me (no pillars, the cake itself will be tiered), and has agreed to let me put real flowers (cheaper than sugar flowers) on the cake. She is also only charging me $.50 a slice, instead of $1.50 or more like everyone else. We aren't planning to do a groom's cake, so we can save some $$.

The Attire:
Don't have a picture yet of my veil, but when I do, I will put it up.

 the dresses are separates, so they all wouldn't look like this. each girl chooses the top she likes with this skirt and one of the colors. 3 girls will purple dresses and the other three will wear green, and the guys will sport classic black tuxes with ties...NO BOWTIES. They'd kill me.

Junior Maid:
she has already told me she wants to wear purple. she's 7 and VERY particular!!

groom/groomsmen/junior groomsmen:

classic black tuxedos with black vests, tailcoats, and ties instead of bowties.

Well folks, here ya go!! When we finish the plans, I will update this and let you know all about it!! Comment and let me know what you think, offer ideas, etc. Thanks!
