Our wedding is being held in July, on Independance Day...In Texas. I think the colors of our wedding are all but shocking, considering.
|Midnight Blue - Ivory- Green|
(ok, so this one might be more since we are straying from the Red but hey, I don't want this to look like a walking flag parade!)
Let Them Eat Cake- and Other Delicious Food Choices
Saturday and Sunday of this week will be filled to the brim with cake tasting and decision making. Will we go with a traditional American wedding cake with 3+ tiers? Will we go the modern route and have a dessert bar filled with candies and cute little cupcakes or will we go way out in left fiend and have a traditional English fruit cake? So far, the latter is not winning. Fruit cake? Really...that does not sound even the least bit appeasing. So far the leading contender in my book (and P's) is a Bavarian Cheesecake. Yall, if you never try antoher cake in your life I swear you won't be sorry. It is AMAZINGGGGG but it ain't cheap- I'm taking around $6.75 A SLICE. Ouch- a little hard to hear with this wedding budget. Oh to dream!
F L O W E R S
This has probably proven to be one of my hardest items to find. No, I'm not taking about finding an actual florist- I have one. I just can not make up my mind on what I really want. Do I need sprays at the alter where we get married? Do I want the girls to carry all white flowers to better contract against their dresses? Do I want to carry white flowers? I've put off meetings with my florist about 3 times now trying to decide what I want and it's getting down to the wire.

*DIY Cake Topper- this one is a little scary, but I refuse to spend upwards of $100 bucks on something this small. I just can't.
