We finally got the invitations working!  I’m not going to post pictures until a few days after they are mailed so we don’t ruin the surprise.

Be on the lookout!  We’ll finish printing and sending in the next few days.

Update Time!

Hello folks!

It’s clear I’ve entered the stage where I’m working more on the wedding itself than updating the blog

A few fun updates!

  • We have found our cake designer!  A pair of cousins (a baker and designer) are going to team up to provide our two-tier cake.  We will be meeting with them in the next few weeks to talk about what we want; but we’re going to have them surprise us with the final design!
  • The dress is coming along smashingly.  My silk should be arriving today, and I’m excited about the patterns.  There have been a few challenges, but I am confident the dress will be beautiful and done in time for the wedding.
  • We plan to send invitations out this weekend.  We’re having a few challenges with the design, but we are sure it will turn out in the end.
  • The ceremony is written, and we will be meeting with the pastor at the end of the month to hash out details.
  • For budget reasons we’ve decided to tone down the candy bar and make it more of a delightful end feature to the buffet.  We’re honing in on menu choices!

I’ll post pictures of dress progress as it happens!

So many updates!

First – is up and working!  This site will host the online RSVP as well as all the information our guests need to get here and have fun!

Lots of things are moving forward.  I bought the rings on Etsy, but Alexander doesn’t know what they look like, so no pictures 🙂  We decided to go with a traditional ring for Alexander and a pendant for me, since my engagement ring will serve quite well as a wedding band.

I finished a bridesmaid bouquet and a boutineer today!  I’m so jazzed.  Check ’em out!

ZOMG – 4 months!

WOW, only 4 months to go!

Save The Dates went out in the mail.  They all have a url:, that I haven’t even developed the webpage for yet.  Right now that’s redirecting here, so…if you went there…welcome!

The website will include travel info, registry details, etc.  I look forward to designing it but I haven’t gotten to that point just yet.

In other news I found perfect unity sand containers!  Woot!

More details when I have a little more updating time!

Table settings

OMG – less than 6 months away!  I’m not working right now so I have lots of time to spend on wedding stuffs.  Fun times!

I worked on my table settings today.  Shannon came with me and by the end was like “I like the white ones…lets just get the white ones.  Yes, these white ones are great. ”  She’s awesome.  I think she’s going to be the voice of reason and “just do it” that my waffling self needs.

So, we ended up getting the white plates  🙂  Came home today and made a shrinky dink horde logo to finish it off!  I think I’ve never loved a plate as much as I love this one:

Tablesettings Part 2

In the tablesettings post I did a few days ago the napkin rings were secured with a button and like embroidery thread.  Wouldn’t it be SUPER cute to use a little sculpy or shrinky dink horde logos?

I’m gonna make a mock up and see what happens.

Love Cake

This cake was featured on cakewrecks a few days ago (not as a wreck…as a nice cake).  i had to share.


I’m not sure if I’ve shared this yet – we have decided to go to the Art Institute of Phoenix for our cake needs.  We are going to post a job on their job board asking for a “surprise me” cake.  We will tell the cake designer that we want something along the spirit of our wedding, and how many people, and have them surprise us on the day of.   Of course, no chocolate.
