So, I think it's pretty safe to assume that our wedding style is "punched up traditional". Sure, we'll have elegant, traditional invitations, but we jazzed them up with our bright color palette and little animals for the food choices...
(I forgot I'd never shared the guts of our invitations!)
And of course we'll be doing a "first dance" to a classic like "Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra, but we're adding in a few moves of our own to spice things up! Our guestbook is not your traditional bound guestbook, but in fact a guest book box with cute little notecard inserts like this...
(Another item I haven't revealed yet, mostly because I can't find my camera...)
So, naturally, we couldn't just settle on a traditional cake serving set! They were all far too boring or cutesy or fancy. See what I mean... And, honestly, when would I ever use them again? So, while on a recent re-registering trip to Target, we purchased the pink santoku knife that I've been eying up for months...
Is it not the most perfect pink knife ever? Plus, it gets bonus points for doing double duty - cake cutter and server! LOVE!
Steve and I got married on January 16th, 2010. This blog documents the planning of the bash in all its glory! The checklists and color schemes and dress ideas were incredibly overwhelming at first but well worth it, so I hope my experiences will make it easier for other brides to navigate the wedding planning process!
Below you will find a list of wedding tasks from www.theknot.com The items are somewhat personalized for our wedding, so you'll want to check out The Knot for the entire list. Plus, you can personalize it yourself! Love that website!
