Ok, we've had this discussion before. The whole food situation was really scaring me. Luckily, I'm pretty sure I made a definite decision. ANNNNND I think you'll like it, because it's awesome, yummy, and a lot of fun.
To go along with our vintage cinema theme I am going to set up a...wait for it....Concession Stand. Complete with three different kinds of popcorn (regular, cheesy, and caramel) and a variety of candy. And that's not all! There will also be SMOOTHIES at the concession stand :-) The concession stand will be open before the ceremony so everyone can enjoy some refreshments and watch us get hitched at the same time.
Then after the ceremony, we will have a buffet prepared by a great chef and my cake, of course, by Carla (my cake mentor). I'm pretty excited about it all. I haven't decided on any kind of cake design. I can look at pictures of cakes all day long and tell you which ones I don't want, but I can't pick one that I DO want. I don't know what my problem is. But here are a few that peaked my interest.
This one is nice...and the color scheme is pretty much perfect
This one is striped...and kinda reminds me of a pop corn box, which is appropriate considering the theme. but that is way to much cake, I don't think we don't need one that big.
This one is pretty interesting, and I think that is the right amount of cake. It doesn't look too over the top.
I absolutely love this, it's really neat. But I'm not completely sold on it. I would like to have a more traditional looking cake. Maybe we can do one like this for some other occasion another time.
So, even if I can't make up my mind about a cake, at least I have a game plan on the food. :-)
My goal this week is to find some dang bridesmaid dresses! I would really like to check that off of the to-do list!
ALSO: Dress update, I had a fitting a couple of weekends ago, and guess what it was almost perfect! Just a few bells and whistles to add and it will be finished. It is exactly what I wanted and I am so happy about it! My grandma was with me and my mom when I tried it on and she approved. She also couldn't believe that it used to be my mom's dress. hehe it looks totally different.
OH! P.s. I'm ordering invitations soon and I am super duper excited about them! I'm not going to post any pictures yet, because you'll be getting them in the mail soon enough. I will tell you that our inspiration is vintage playbills. And they're really awesome looking!
Until next time (I'll be sharing our wedding soundtrack with you soon...it's not complete yet)
