Think Outside of the Cake

You can display your wedding cupcakes like a cupcake buffet:

If cake stands are to pricey for you, use plates on top of upside down champagne glasses (or candle holders) like this bride did:

Wedding Cake Alternative

When I started planning my wedding I knew I wanted to do a wedding cake alternative. When my wedding reception was going to be in my parents backyard I wanted to have an ice cream sundae bar. Now that my reception will be during lunch and indoors I am going to have wedding cupcakes! Most bakeries will charge for wedding cupcakes as much as they charge for wedding cakes (sorry not a cheaper option on this end) but you don't have to pay your reception venue to cut and serve your cake. Wedding cupcakes in my opinion are not a good idea for formal (black tie) wedding receptions unless you display outside the banquet room as a favor for your guest to take as they leave. I meet with my baker (can I call her that) next week!

Here is a display that I really like:

Did You Think the Elections Were Over

dress #3

I'm up for suggestions. What do you (anyone) think?

Or Should They Wear Green


Everybody is going green maybe I should join them (just kidding). I don't have to decide today on the bridesmaid's dress but according to my timeline the dresses need to be ordered 4 - 6 months (Jan-March) before the wedding. Where has the time gone? I'm excited to get married but I'm behind on my to do list that should be completed 6 months before the wedding

Keep Your Fingers Cross

Not only am I on a tight budget but also my bridal party. All three of them do not have a full-time job like me so I am on the look out for bridesmaids dresses that are simple, elegant, and under $125. Well, it has not been hard finding dresses with that criteria it has been hard finding the right shade of pink.

I found this dress at Target. As much as I love Target I have never bought clothes from there so I'm not if I can trust them. I'm also not sure if this dress is even elegant.

Keep your fingers cross as I continue looking
