I want FI and I to wear African traditional (yet modern) attire.
My auntie is gifting us Kente cloth to wear so we will see what colors they are so we can coordinate accordingly :-)
We will change right before the cake cutting. We will be doing a re-entrance :-) I think this time we will really dance it up to get everyone hyped LOL
(purchased from Etsy)
The lady sent me this picture to show me how to it looks and if I want to make any changes before she sends it off to me.
The Cake :-)
I think to cut costs, we will make this two tiered and save the top for our one year anni and have the waiters cut the second tier for the family members. There will be two sheet cakes in the kitchen for them to cut for the rest of the guests (about 220)
. I like the simplicity of it because it won't detract from the cake topper which I love and want it to stand out!! :-)
This will go in front of the cake (if there is spacve I will put it in on the cake stand along with the cake) with rose petals and candles :-) Romantic theme!!
Since we will be having a cake display, I was thinking of maybe including cupcakes in the display. The caterers are giving us cookies, fruit and icecream. Do you think I need cupcakes?
Hmm. Will revisit this. I have until January anyway. I want to book our bakery by then..
These are for the guest tables. Will do a proper mock up later on in the summer.
I got these from amazing savings for 15.99!
I love this idea for the table numbers :-) I already purchased the jars and doilies :-)
Need to figure out how I will put the #s on them, stencil or precut? hmmm
To be continued.. :-)
My fiance and I met through his sister and a friend that lives in my area but keeps in touch with his family. My FSIL and friend "conspired" (lol) to find someone for my now FH.
April 18, 2012---I was asked if it was okay to recommend me to someone in California. Now usually I would say no he is too far but I decided to give it a shot because part of the problem I haven't found anyone is because I was stuck looking in the area I was living in. KEEP AN OPEN MIND i kept telling myself..
My friend sent pictures of him and I didn't know what I thought of him till I showed my sister. Her reaction was "Oh he's cute!" (lol) After the shock wore off, I realized "he IS cute isn't he??" So I told my friend he can give my number to the guy and we will see what happens from there..
well it was successful!!! our first conversation we talked for like an hour and it was great. It felt like we knew each other all out lives! :-)
He came the next month to meet my family and they all love him! i was so relieved and it made the process go so much better...
He told me he loved me in July :-) I fell in love with him in July as well when i opened up about a few things and he told me how he truly felt. I knew it was for forever :-) *tear*
*~*~*~ THE PROPOSAL *~*~*~
Fast forward to January 18, 2013!!!
After he asked my dad to marry me and he accepted, he said something to the effect of (you know you cant remember everything when your heart is jumping a milllion time fast!!!) as he is getting older he wants to have a partner in life to progress with and he has found me to be the one. Then he says "But I have one question to ask..." and he knelt down and in front of my whole family...
ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM :-)))
I SAID YESSS!!!!
WE ARE ENGAGED!!!
