Invitation Mock Up

Tonight I decided to play around with invitation design and make a mock up of my 'ideal' invitation... with lots of enclosures! So, I went to AC Moore and got some paper and made my own pocketfold, invite and enclosures.... If we do decide to go with something like this for invitations, I will buy pocketfolds and and other materials to make it quicker!

Here's what I came up with: a light pink pocket fold with silver belly band and monogram. Inside is a sheet of pink swirled vellum over panel invitation with silver mat. Pocket holds four enclosures: Reception card, RSVP, Accommodations card, and Directions and Map card.

What do you think??

Mmmmm... Cake!

This afternoon we met with Sweet Memories Bakery in Apex. We've tasted their cakes before, so we knew it would be amazing... and it was just as good as we remembered.

Here's what we have so far for our design. It will be a very pale pink/blush colored cake with ivory/cream details. The icing will be in a lace design scattered across the cake. The tiers will have bands of fondant and there will be a simple and elegant bow on one (or two) of the tiers.

All of this progress is sooo exciting! :)

It's Official: Bridesmaid Dresses!

Yay! We FINALLY made a decision about bridesmaids dresses! I went to David's Bridal today with two of my bridesmaids and my mom. We decided that the short dress that we had liked was a little bit too casual for an evening wedding and next to my dress. We really liked the long one with organza top and sash. So, we decided that it is THE one, we're getting F13625 in "Candy Pink."

Here are some pictures of the girls at David's Bridal trying on the style in a different color.
