I don't know about you ladies, but this weekend was super busy with planning.
We are changing our colors (again.) As much as we both love the Peacock color and it'd be amazing to have the same colors that my grandma did for her wedding...we can't find ANYTHING! So today I'm deciding between a navy blue or a lighter blue. The champagne color is staying and is still our primary color. The blue is just an accent. Grandma was the one that brought it up and I'm so glad she did.
So we had a tasting yesterday and sat down to find out how much it'll cost us to do cakes as centerpieces as well as our 2-tier wedding cake. The cakes will be super plain, I don't like a lot of detailing on them. White cakes with little buttercream dots all over and a satin ribbon in our blue color along the bottom. 18 centerpieces and our 2-tier cake and all we have to pay is $40! Our cake budget in the wedding package takes care of the rest!! (I almost hugged the man I was so excited.) Our flavors will be cherry chip, Chocolate Ho-Ho and a seasonal summer cake they make with white cake, strawberry filling and then a layer of freshly chopped strawberries. It sounded so light and delicious!
Shoes: I found my shoes! Both my ceremony shoes and my flats for once the dancing starts. There were NOTHING like I thought I'd get. In fact when I was shown them, I started laughing. As soon as I put them on I knew they were perfect. I felt like a bride. It was nothing like I'd ever buy for a night out on the town. I didn't want to get something that I would have worn to a club. And I have never ever worn a pair of ballerina flats, but they are a gold shade and so comfy.
