I am going to a local bakery called Mrs. Backers for my cake. They make the most beautiful and delicious pastries and cakes. Me and my sister get our birthday cakes from there every year, it isn’t a birthday with out one! This is also one thing my mother insists on, an edible wedding cake. She down right refused to pay for a cake that she would not be able to enjoy (fondant frosting to be exact). But that is fine with me, Mrs. Backers is my first choice any day. We are hashing out a flower proposal and hope to get that wrapped up soon. The florist is Trifecta Floral and I can’t wait to see what kind of fun they create for us. The centerpieces are going to include some old bottles that we found lying around my house when I bought it :) The DJ we booked for the night is also going to be perfect. We met him a bridal show a few weeks ago and booked him on the spot. The service he works through, Complete Music, has great program to get people moving out on the dance floor and can even show us some fun line dances to get the party started. They also take care setting up microphones for the officiant and announcing the toast or whatever you need them to do.
The dress is ordered an on it’s way. I spent WAY too much but it was worth it. The designer is Ann Barge and you’ll just have to wait until after the wedding to see it. I can however show you the shoes I got for it, they are perfect!
I sending out invitations this week and I have started a wedding website for the out of towners to get information about accomodations and such. I have yet to find an officiant for the ceremony, it’s going to be a hard decision but I know it will all work out in time. Things are coming together nice and stress free and I think it’s going to be a perfect day!
Here are some fun pics from the last party me and my friends had last friday. The theme was Mardi Gras/Toga/Aquarius, basically wear Mardi Gras colored togas and all the birthday people who are Aquarius got to wear special gold leaf laurels. A few of us decided on a whim to get our faces painted. I went with the zebra theme, because it reminded me of Rosie ;)
