    I think it’s cute.  It sounds like it’s coming together nicely.  It seems like you are using good tact and restraint on not making it too over the top.  I like that you are using touches of you and your fiance to “decorate” the wedding.  Would love to see pics!

    It sounds good, but if you don’t want it too red/navy, you could still add in pops of “tiffany”.  Just have your future SIL get measured, and order her dress based on her measurements. 🙂

    What does your Fi think? My husband is British, we married in and live in the US, and had the option of hanging a British flag alongside the Anerican flag that our venue always flies. He declined after about 1 second of consideration. The British have a much different relationship with their flag than we Americans do. Some British folks think it’s a bit showy to put the flag on everything like we Americans do. If your Fi is of that mindset, the navy and red color scheme would probably be just fine, but Union Jack and Old Glory cupcakes might make him cringe a bit.

    i also wouldn’t count on the bm’s to be assistant bakers unless they’ve already volunteered. That’s the kind of task that most folks with manners wouldn’t decline, if asked politely, even if they really don’t enjoy it. They’d do it out of obligation. And that isn’t quite fair on them!

    @mrsellix:  I think this is a cute idea. Why can’t you have red, Tiffany blue/aqua and navy?

    @MlleFabuleux:  This is the color combo of my kitchen and I LOVE it. So pretty and makes me smile with the pops of red. 

    This has to be my favorite color combo ever. Wish I was brave enough to do it for my wedding.
