SURVEY: wedding wonder!

Am I the only one who already has wedding season on the mind?
I have several exciting events this spring & summer to be thinking about, one of them a good friend's engagement party.
I need your help with a little game I'm putting together, and I'd like to get as much input as possible!
Answer the questions below in the comments section (just one word or short phrase answers), and send your friends to join in the fun as well... pretty please?
I'll post the results next week, and explain the game... in case you want to file it under obsessive party planning (some of us call it OPP) for future use!
THANKS so much for playing along!
