So I deleted the old page bc so much has changed!! We had a cake baker selected but I never had a good feeling (wouldn't meet again and didn't want to work with fondant) about it so we went searching and my mom and I found another bakery!!
Mad Hatter Cakes in Jacksonville, AL will be making my cake now
The cake will be like this but the pearls will be around the bottom and solid white. It will also be 4-tiered and the flower will be a massive white magnolia.
We are doing a white velvet cake and 3 flavors: Raspberry on bottom and top, lemon on the second and orange creme on the third.
I found my dress at Alfred Angelo in Birmingham on the first day of looking. It was the 5th or 6th one I tried on and everyone had "the moment" when I walked out.

me in the dress (it was not my size so it's a little snug!) ignore my hands... I was getting frustrated with the photo taking!
I purchased an amazing bolero to go with my dress!! Etsy HollyBloomCouture
I'm really crafty but I refused to be the bride that gets overwhelmed and takes on too much before the wedding so I am only DIY-ing what I can do ahead of time. Most of my DIYs are in the gift department, but I will be designing my programs and a few other things for the wedding.
15x14mm Flat Swarovski Crystal Briolette www.brightlingsbeads.com
8mm Antique Silver Bail www.brightlingsbeads.com
Stearling Silver Earring Findings www.hobbylobby.com
Attach the briolette to bail and then to finding. Easiest DIY ever!!
with bridesmaid's bracelets
I'm making 16 of these for my bm's, mother's, ME :), and my guestbook, program attendants and cake cutter. The BMs bags will hold their jewelry

Monogram Iron-on from Hobby Lobby, but being discontinued
Line up monogram with seam and run iron over 1 time for about 5 seconds. Then lay washcloth over decal and hold iron over for about 10 seconds then run iron over it the decal for about 30 seconds. Let cool for five minutes and remove backing. Voila! The best thing is I only paid 5 bucks to make these!!
