So, my lady and I decided that we're going to get a civil union on 11.11.2011, and have a ceremony & reception in the spring of '12.

I am so freaking excited just thinking about it! I've been planning my wedding since I was a wee little girl!

Does anyone here have any experience in planning same-sex ceremonies? Or nontraditional weddings at all? :}

A few details:
-we are straight-up broke. we are both college students who work in fast food, so we have almost no money to spend on this wedding. She's not crafty at all, so I'm going to have to put a lotttt of DIY-ing into this thing.
-instead of bridesmaids and groomsmen, we're going to have my two brothers and her two sisters
-the theme is red/white/black pinups
-no way am i wearing a white wedding dress! I'm wearing a red polka-dotted dress made by a friend, and my lady is gonna rock a poodle skirt made by me and a white top and saddle shoes.
-her sister's GF and I will be handling the makeup and hair, seeing as we're the girliest. XD
-her family is full of amazing mexican cooks, so we're going to have a taco bar
-my brothers are going to wear hand-embroidered dress shirts, and her sisters are going to wear tutus made by me
-instead of a cake, we've enlisted my talented aunt to bake us chocolate, red velvet, and vanilla cupcakes! Nom nom!
-she's an awesome photographer, so for centerpieces, we're doing flowers with pictures of our loved ones
-her father doesn't like social functions, so she'll be walked down the aisle by our friend Shawn, and instead of trying to pick between my dad and step-dad, I'm just going to have my mom walk me down the aisle. Problems solved!

Any other ideas for things we can make or do to save money?

Look for ideas on http://offbeatbride.com/ - if I recall correctly, they had a lot of same-sex ceremony advice on there.  It's a site made for non-traditional weddings. Smiley

Craftster needs you!

Hmm, the only non traditional thing that I had was a Man of Honor as well as a Maid of Honor, so no ideas here.  I love what you have so far and would love to see pics!
