Our cake will be absolutely DELICIOUS! She has done my confirmation, graduation, and two birthdays. They are fabulous every time. I want a big cake and I'd like to keep with my floral/garden-like theme, so I really like this one. (Thanks Martha Stewart) I'm not quite sure what colors to use though. I'll have peach accents throughout so maybe an ivory cake w/ peachy flowers. I like the hydrangeas, but my main bouquet flower will be dahlias, so who knows!
Since my groom's passion is baseball, we found this cute cake topper and our cake will be the baseball diamond. He's really excited about it!
My florist told me I might like Bells of Ireland, and I fell in love. They're totally unique! I'll also include some wheat stems in there to keep the country for my fiance. They'll be sitting on a mirror with several votives around for soft lighting. I'm also looking for some sort of glitz/classy confetti to have on my tables for a little extra.

I'm pretty sure I've got the CUTEST flowergirl ever! She's just adorable and I love her to death. When I asked her to be my flowergirl, she went straight over to her mom with a super serious face and asked if she still had her flower basket from the last wedding-she was going to need it. haha how cute is that?!
These dresses are from David's Bridal. They're like the little girl version of mine I think. The beading matches really well. (Sorry the picture on the left isn't good.) She really wanted to wear a "crown" so I picked out a little tiara for her and which dress she likes best.
For now, all I've got is my engagement ring to show. This isn't the exact ring, but it's basically it. I wanted something beautiful and timeless, so I hinted that I would like a round stone with a plain band. I couldn't be more happy!!! :)
We just bought my wedding bands this past week, so I'll have a row of diamonds on each side of my engagement ring. He's still deciding which one he wants. Picky picky...
I'm having 5 of my closest friends as my bridesmaids. It's actually quite sentimental because I've got my sister, my new sister(-in-law), my childhood best friend, my high school best friend, and then my college best friend! It worked perfectly!
I fell in love with this olive green and knew that's the color the dresses would be, no matter what the style. I went through quite a few bridesmaid dresses until I settled on this one. I think it compliments my dress and its Grecian look wonderfully.
So this is the dress! It was literally love at first sight, since it was the first I came across that I really really liked. I love the detailing and simple elegance of it. It's a Galina Signature from David's Bridal.
