Wedding Cake?? & Florist & Candlesticks

It just keeps coming so I'm gonna keep going...

so my aunt emailed last week. she was talking to my dad who was bragging that i was making my wedding cake. she promptly informed him that no bride should make her own cake and sent an email saying she would love to pay for our wedding cake for us to relieve some stress and to make us happy.

we are going to take her up on it! i'm very excited, but also slightly sad to ditch the idea of making my own cake. there were many logistical things that grant and i were worried about. such as how to transport the cake, how early to make it, when could i frost it, etc. this alleviates all of those things...so that is good. i just want my wedding to still be kinda DIY.

i love this cake...



we also decided to forgo doing our own flowers...again kinda sad cuz i like the idea of doing everything on our own, but i also know myself and i'm a stressed out spaz in situations like these (i keep thinking back to my prom days and how snappy i would get at my mom...scares me). we chose to go with lemon halo...they are going to just do 'bridal party' flowers and seem like they will be VERY cool to work with.



a few weeks ago i was in portland meandering around with mom and lindsey and stumbled upon a little place called ikea. sooo fun. and weird that i like it cuz it is all so modern and i like more vintage/country/antique/old stuff. anyway we found some awesome candlesticks for the wedding on super sale. mom bought them all for us so we are kind of set in term of centerpieces...




wouldn't want to give too much away so you can guess if we got silver or gold =)

Whew, that was a load of posting I had to catch up on! It sounds like you are keeping plenty busy with wedding planning! Lucas and I got the save the date, and I love it! As does Lucas, who saw it on the fridge and said, "wow, I really like this" a direct quote! I love the cake choice and the shoes. We can't wait for the wedding!!!
