Cakes & Pies, Cakes & Pies

We’ve been lucky with our wedding vendors so far. We absolutely loved the first photographer and DJ we met with. Cakes on the other hand seems to be more of a challenge. Ok, maybe I’ve spoken too soon since we’ve only met with one so far. But we just didn’t love her and there’s no need to settle with so many cakes to be tasted! In addition to cake, we’re going to have a dessert table if someone wants an extra sweet little nibble after dinner. Not a huge elaborate dessert table, but beautifully displayed…aesthetics are #1 on my list for the wedding day. If it doesn’t look pretty I don’t want anything to do with it (there may be an ounce of bridezilla in me). But I digress. I’m not sure exactly which look of the cake I like best. I want to keep it simple and clean and elegant but still gorgeous. Here are some ideas.

Wedding Season Is Upon Us

Spring marks the start of wedding season! It’s amazing being able to be there to share the day with your friends and family, but weddings can be costly. From showers to bachelorette parties to wedding gifts & outfits, it all adds up. Let’s face it, all eyes will not be on you the day of the wedding, but you still want to look nice and feel great (without upstaging the bride, of course). That’s why I love, love, love Rent the Runway. Amazing dresses & accessories that won’t break the bank. Here are my favorites:
