Last night, I also finalized the details with our cake. We are going to have a four layer square cake, white with copper ribbon around the bottom edges of each layer, and randomly covered with fall leaves and possibly some acorns. We had some difficulty finding a topper that I liked because I have red hair and my fiance has shoulder length blond hair. Neither of us are the stiff type so the traditional cake toppers were doing nothing for me. Also, my fiance is really into Tim Burton's movies as you can tell from reading his blog at Outspoken85 . He's also really into zombies and video games, lots of stuff I'm not into at all. However, this entire wedding was left up to me to plan, so I planned it to my tastes. In order to include him somehow, I decided with his help that I am going to crochet a zombie bride and groom, in a tasteful manner, from my new book Creepy Cute . The bride is all done except for her veil, and I am so happy with her! They really are cute, and will give us something truly unique for our wedding.
My dress has been dropped off to get pressed and cleaned. All three bridesmaids have paid for their dresses, and two of them actually have their dresses already. Two of the three guys that are wearing tuxes have them paid for, which I think are pretty good odds seeing as how we are speaking of men here. All the kids in the wedding have something to wear as well.
My sister's husband is going to take pictures of the wedding party and during the ceremony. Another family friend is going to help during the ceremony and before with pictures and will also be taking a lot of pictures at the reception for us.
A good friend of mine is taking over DJ-ing even though she has never DJ-ed before. She has the personality for it, and her brother may be helping her out. I'm not sure yet, but I know it will be loads of fun.
As of right now, we just need to get bird seed to make our little bird seed bags for people to toss as we are walking out. We also need a get away car of some sort, which may end up being my old school mutli-colored Buick Park Avenue, and we need to get soda and snacks for the reception. If time and money allow, I'd also love to get a new sundress to wear at the reception when I'm ready to get out of the heavy wedding dress.
It has been a load of stress up to this point. It has been dramatic. At times, it has been painful. I think the actual wedding day will be over in such a blur that I won't remember much, but thankfully I have wonderful friends and family that will help me to capture those memories so I can look back on how beautiful the process will be.
So what was your wedding like? How did your plans go? Was there disaster? I'd love to hear your stories to take my mind off of my own for a bit. :)
