The Cake Cutting… August 28, 2008

Filed under: Wedding Planning — Bridal Inquirer @ 7:59 pm

We thought we were the only ones who felt a little awkward after the cake cutting, but have come to find out that other Brides & Grooms had the same experience! Maybe it was our own fault because we never practiced cutting even an imaginary cake! But that actually wasn’t even the uncomfortable part. It was just weird after feeding each  other cake and everyone was gathered around watching us…its like ok, now what??? Our cake cutting song was playing just as we had requested, but there was a weird pause. I just wanted to give you ladies a heads up so you can plan your next move because ALL eyes are on you! My husband thanks me because I am more of a ham than him so I just kissed him and danced around a bit to keep him from hiding under the cake table! lol…but the pictures were worth it!

Something Old, Something New… August 27, 2008

Filed under: Wedding Planning — Bridal Inquirer @ 8:13 pm

I just wanted to share my something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue in case you are still trying to get ideas for your wedding day. My “Old” item was my grandmother’s rosary beads, which I layed over my bouquet during the ceremony. My “New” item was my new wedding gown. My “Borrowed” was my mom’s hankie that she used in her wedding, which I carried bunched in my hand behind my bouquet! An lastly, my “Blue” item was my cute Mrs. undies, which were hidden under my hideous spanx, of course 🙂 (Ladies, if you dont own a pair of spanx… you need to go out and get some NOW!)

You can never go wrong with a white wedding! I am in love with the white wildflower look shown in these beautiful photos from the knot gallery! Imagine an outdoor venue with little white lights, gold accents and white flowers of all types in different sized vases = GORGEOUS!
