Wedding Survey

How long did you date before you got engaged?
A little over 3 years

Did you get the ring you wanted?
Pretty much. There were 5 I really liked and mine was one of them

Was the proposal a complete surprise?
Nope. I knew it was coming. We have been talking about marriage since the VERY beginning of our relationship

Do you wish you had a bigger/smaller diamond? If so How big or small?
My ring is perfect. If anything, I didn't want the diamond too big because my finger is so small (size 4! omg.)

Did you cry when he proposed?
No I didn't

Was the proposal romantic or creative? Explain how if you'd like.
It was thoughtful and romantic. Tommy took me out to dinner to my favorite Thai restaurant with a few of our closest friends. Then after we ate we all headed to the "secret location" which was up a mountain. Once we got there we stopped in an area that over looked the city. He knew I loved the lights at night. He even had 3 places in mind to pop the question just in case one fell through, which the first did. All with the same type of view. Then he got down on one knee and asked.

When do you want to go for your honeymoon?
Like a month or so after the wedding so we can get settled in out new place and not be so rushed. Plus we want to spend time with family and friends, mainly those from out of town, and want to send out our thank you's.

Are you buying his wedding band for him?

Have you gone over your original wedding budget?

What day of the year will your wedding be?
Friday September 25, 2009

Probably on the warm/hot side

Inside or outside?

Church/justice of the peace/other?

How many people will be there?
Over 200

Time of day?
5:00 pm

Any kind of theme?
Hawaiian with touches of each of our cultures. Puerto Rican and Filipino for Tommy and Japanese and Mexican for me.

How many bridesmaids? Who would they be?
Oh gees. 6 bridesmaids and 2 junior bridesmaids. My maid of honor will be my best friend, and the bridesmaids will be one of my cousins, one of Tommy's sisters, one of my kindergarten friends, and two of our friends. The junior bridesmaids will be Tommy's niece and a friend of ours.

What kind of cake/what will it look like?
For sure Chocolate with Raspberry filling and maybe Vanilla with Apricot filling. It'll be white, square, with a cake topper of our Monogram with Swarovski crystals and flowers and swirls decorating it.

Where will you have the reception?
CalTech's Dabney Lounge and Garden

Orchids with other tropical flowers

Solitaire Princess cut

Kind of wedding bands?
Not sure about mine, but Tommy's will either be Black with Silver or a Dark Silver with a light Silver. It's awesome! Maybe I'll get him both!

How will you wear your hair?
Down and wavy with either one flower by my ear, or a few scattered

Who will be important to be there?

Will the reception be big or small?
Considering we had to cut our guest list to less than half, it's small

What will the groom wear?
Khaki pants and jacket, white linen shirt, turquoise tie, with a Ti Leaf Maile and white Orchids

Where will you go for the honeymoon?
This was the easiest part of our planning because it was automatic. We didn't even need to discuss it because we just knew. We're going to Hawaii

How long?
We'll see

What will you do?
Everything we can

Will it be modest or costly?
Well it's Hawaii, it doesn't come cheap

What will you stay in?
Hotel, condo, or both

How old will you and the groom be?
We'll both be 23

How long will you be engaged before you get married?
A little less than 2 years

Live together before or wait till married?

Take a long time to plan the wedding or will it be simple?
It's taking long because I procrastinate, and because things don't always work out the way we plan. But we want it fairly simple.

Will you do it yourself or with family or hire someone to plan the wedding?
I'm doing it mostly by myself with the help of friends and family

Will you write your own vows or use something pre-made?
We're going with pre-made/traditional but will have personal ones in our wedding program for those who want to read them
