I'm feeling pretty good about my planning today. Guest list is finalized and Save-the-Dates (so cute!) are on their way!! (For real this time- ha!) Picked out some of the music last night & chose a destination for the honeymoon- St. Lucia it is!! Today I ordered invitations and am SUPER pleased with how they turned out. I LOVE them! Not Just Stationary in Gainesville has a huge selection, & Deenah was the most helpful of any of the vendors yet. She gave me lots of suggestions & honest advice, and was extremely patient. :) I feel like my experience with scrapbooking and being a yearbook advisor helped a lot. I also made a decision about favors. Whew! Do it girl...
Just felt a need to blog about these accomplishments because I was borderline meltdown mode on Monday, so this is good. Very good.

Okay, you know this is hysterical! And in some weird sense, I feel like we can really pull it off. (P.S. Check our Big Jon's sweet sun poisoning! Ouchie!)
Lunch time! Ravioli, anyone? (It smelled yummy, not gonna lie!)
Note to self: If I ever have twins, bring sitters to the beach.

I'm NOT a fan of fondant, so our cake will look something like this, only with ribbon instead of the iced pearls, and pink peonies instead of red roses. Oh, and a big monogrammed B on top!
I think it's very classic & simple, yet elegant. And I think it's different. Most of the other cakes in the gallery looked pretty much the same to me, so I love that this one is unique. I wanted it to be different, but not too eccentric...who wants to look back on their cake in 30 years and be like "What the heck was that?" So to me, this one is perfect! I'm SO excited...but a little disappointed the cake testing is over. We may go somewhere else just for fun!!
