Let's Evaluate Your Answers!

If You Answered Mostly 'A's...
You're pretty much the opposite of the stereotypical "girly girl" - and some might even classify you as a tomboy! You never gave much thought to your wedding before you got engaged, and that's fine by you. You're looking forward to getting married now that you've found Mr. Right, but you certainly don't need all the ritzy details. A casual, low-key wedding will probably be perfect for you.

If You Answered Mostly 'B's...
You find a nice balance between feminine and masculine perspectives. You enjoy the finer feminine things in life, but you're not afraid to get a little messy every now and then. You tend to get along with men and women equally well, and you want to design a wedding that everyone will enjoy. Your best bet will be to strike a balance between a fancy and casual wedding - and you shouldn't have any trouble doing it.

If You Answered Mostly 'C's...
The secret is out! You're every bit of the stereotypical "girly girl" - and you're completely okay with it! You love being pampered and you always take great care to make sure your appearance is flawless. Your fairytale wedding will be everything you always dreamed it would be: beautiful, dreamy, and romantic. Don't be afraid to go all out with the glittery decorations and accessories!
