YEP Ladies........we did it.......! However NOT legal yet......
On March 10, 2010 we had our wedding ceremony in Koh Samui - Thailand...It was kind of last-minute arrangement though!
First of all we already booked a vacation to Thailand in March this year. And one of my dreams was having a beach ceremony, since our budget doesn't allow us to get our friends & family to an exotic place I was thinking why not having one while we're there (just the 2 of us)... However, since we came up with the idea in January, we haven't had much time to make all the arrangements before we left for Thailand on March 3rd......
So, I browsed thru the Internet like crazy to find a dress, our rings, a nice venue, an officiant who would be able to marry us, affordable photographer, flowers etc etc etc..........and all that within 8 weeks........At first I emailed a local wedding planner, however their price was soooooo ridiculous so I decided to arrange myself. After my long research and sleepless nights I managed to arrange everything on time!!!!!! It was 8-weeks full of stress but totally worth it............!!!!!!! I even found a great dressmaker, who was able to make me a beautiful tea-length wedding dress within 4 weeks time. AND we designed our wedding bands ourselves, which were hand made in Indonesia (lot cheaper). It was a close call, but my sister who lives in Indonesia was able to get the rings ready on time. I got the rings on March 2nd, and we left on March 3rd...........
Our beach ceremony was sooooo romantic, just like I ever dreamed of...............Just the 2 of us standing there, with our bear feet in the sand, exchanging our vows and rings and finally the words 'I do'......
Despite all the stress and all that the entire experience was just amazing! UNFORGETTABLE..............And I'm sooooo very happy to call him my husband, eventhough it isn't legal yet.....................
CREATE YOUR OWN CUPCAKE TREE/CAKE STAND.........
So I decided to challenge myself to make my own in Black/White/Silver..........However, what I'm going to do is little bit different......I'm going to use 5 square silver cake drums, smallest one on the top for our wedding cake and the other 4 for the cupcakes...
Then I'm gonna use black ribbon to cover the edges of each cake drum!
As support of the tower I will use 3 cake dummies, which I will cover with black/sparkly ribbon:
Then I will glue all these parts altogether.
I really hope that my idea will work out......I'll keep you posted and show you the real pics asap!!!!
Anyway, this is how it suppose to be at the end, except mine will be square shape with different colours..........at least you have an idea what I'm talking about ;-)
FINALLY I started on my cake stand!!!
I sew on the rhinestone trims on the satin ribbon and hot glued the ribbon covered by the blings on the cake board. It took FOREVER, but I love how it turned out!! 2 cake boards to go...UGGGHHHHHH
Im going to put 3 cake boards on these cake dummies which I covered with black satin ribbons:
