  • What is your wedding date?  July 3, 2005

    Where did you get married? Bristol Chapel in Princeton, NJ- DH and I met there at summer camp!

    What color were your bridesmaid dresses?  I described them as Dunkin Donuts coffee with cream, so light brownish with ivory ribbon around the waist

    What kind of flowers did you have?  Ivory and Dolce Vita (ivory with pink tips) roses

    What was the most unique aspect of your wedding?  Probably taking the entire wedding party to watch fireworks after our reception.  Or the fact that DH and I sang in our ceremony- we met singing so it fitting.

    What thing(s) would you change?  I recently realized our entree options were seafood heavy (steak & salmon or seabass), so I'd probably throw in some chicken.  I'd also have them save some of the appetizers from cocktail hour since we didn't get any.  Also, I'd want DH to have a groom's cake- never heard about these until after we were married.
