Ok, this isn't really knitting related, but I want as many opinions as I can get. Chris and I are starting to think about where we want to have our wedding. Remember, the wedding won't be for another 2 years (Summer 2009...probably), but we have busy lives that are likely to just become busier, so its probably a good idea to start planning now. The first thing, of course, is to find a location. Right now we are thinking that we would like to have it in the mountains. We both like the idea of having an outdoor wedding and something that is more casual and fun than formal. No churches. No generic formal banquet halls. We also don't want to spend a fortune. Its probably not going to be huge, but since our families have a lot of friends it will be more than 50 people (not a very precise estimate, I know). So, mountains of North Carolina. No churches. Outdoor ceremony, indoor/outdoor options for the reception (in case the weather is too hot, too cold, too dry or too wet). A grand old mansion or manor house with a broad front porch leading to a expansive lawn with ancient trees and flower gardens would be ideal.
Any Suggestions on the perfect place????
Oh, and to keep this somewhat knitting related, I think that I (and any other knitters who want to help me!) might knit a bunch of felted flowers to use in some decorative manner, haven't decided exactly how yet. Also open for suggestions.
