Don't forget the food!

On TLC's Four Weddings, a bride only served appetizers and obviously did not get enough food for all her guests. It went something like this:

I wish I had found the video of the guest brides ordering takeout and eating it during the reception!

In the beginning...

In the beginning...

I've been planning my wedding for about 8 years now, but let me set the record straight; I am not currently engaged. There is no ring or date. Just the right guy. For as long as I can remember I've been thinking about what I want and absolutely do not want for my wedding. The way I see it, when the time is right I will have already made most of the decisions.

Why a blog? In the search for my 'dream' wedding, I have seen quite a few really good ideas that just don't fit into what I now think of as my wedding. Somehow I don't think my family will come to see me get married multiple times just because I have more than one theme or color scheme that I think would look amazing. So I came up with a challenge; what if I were to attempt to plan a different wedding each month, using only things that I like (whether or not I would be able to afford it.) I would include:

  • Bridal attire (dress, shoes, hair, makeup)
  • Bridesmaids
  • Groomsmen
  • Location
  • Entertainment (including but not limited to a top 3 must play songs list)
  • Flowers
  • Centerpieces/table decor
  • Food
  • Favors
  • Invitations
  • Anything else I can possibly pretend relates to the wedding idea

Lately I have been inspired by: Vintage Postcards
Can't find a direct link for this but it was saved to my favorites, so here are the details from theknot:

Wasabi + Pumpkin
Lend your signature flower and motif to the cake. Three-tiered square cake with Mokara sugar orchids, sugar paste green china berries, sugar clementines, and graphic square print band by Cake Alchemy.
