About This Quiz

Close your eyes and picture your big day. Where are you? What are you wearing? What is your partner wearing? Who have you invited to come see you get married? Now imagine the reception celebration. What kind of flowers did you use to decorate the reception hall? What kind of centerpieces sit on each table? Is there a band or did you hire a DJ? What's everybody eating? Most importantly: what does the cake look like?

How you see your dream wedding unfolding depends upon several factors, such as your personality, your partner's personality and the generation you come from. We're not saying that every Gen X couple wants a post-punk band to play at their dance-less reception, but whether you were born in 1964 or 1994 will influence your opinions on everything from wedding favors to tablescapes, as well as what you ask for on your registry. After all, most baby boomers already have toasters! Think we're wrong? Why not take this quiz? Even if we can't guess your age correctly, you might just pick up some interesting wedding ideas.
