Hahaha Definitely Not… I’m a Bear Wink

But Creme De La Creme in Ft Worth did do a groom’s cake of Kyle Field a couple years back. Despite my opinions of the actual field- the cake was very impressive.

I think there was a blogger bee who was an aggie in the past year,  it would be worth searching

I’m an Aggie! I’m already married (to a non-Aggie), but most of my bridesmaids were Aggies so we made sure to get a bunch of photos of our Aggie rings, everyone giving a gig ’em, etc. 

My husband’s grooms cake was the official seal from his alma mater (University of South Carolina), and I was feeling a little jealous that I didn’t get an A&M cake… so I took one of my Fish Camp Howdy pins (I was a FC counselor) and had our baker stick it on the back of our big white cake. I don’t think anyone else saw it, but I knew it was there. πŸ™‚

I’m an Aggie (’08). πŸ™‚ We aren’t incorporating any Aggie traditions, though. Until recently, I was the only Aggie in my family; everyone else came from a UT system school. I think bridesmaids in maroon is a really cute idea, though!

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: Wait, are you saying band members weren’t sure if they wanted to beat Texas?

@amanda06: More or less. There were some who really wanted to beat them but there were also some who really didn’t- and there were those like me who would have been happy with going to San Diego and happy with beating UT.

@SaraP2012: They taste great too! We sliced our top layer into 12 so we have a piece each month and it still tastes better at 4 months than our friends’ did (different vendor) on the day of- even with fruit filling. I highly suggest doing the open house then setting up an appointment for a one-on-one so you can try all of them ahead of time to get some ideas.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: I’m also a Bear, and it’s disappointing some fans, especially band members, wouldn’t want to win because of a bowl location. This has been an incredible season, and that win is huge for RGIII’s Heisman race. We have a good recruiting class in the making and need all the momentum we can get. I guess I can’t fathom not wanting your team to win.

@amanda06:

We are not rooting for the team to lose, we are rooting for a location that would not leave us high and dry between the bowl activities. We support the team far more than most fans, we stay well past the end of the game. We certainly know what this season means to Baylor. We do not get scholarships, free gear or a career for how well we do- we are pay fees to support the team and want all our time to be used well, especially when we give up our Christmas.

anyway I’m sure the aggies don’t want to hear about Baylor football on a thread about their traditions in weddings. πŸ™‚

Hm… for some reason it won’t let me @tag someone so this is in reply to Knubbsy-Wubbsy. I’m not a Bear, but our best man is and in the band, so I’m mad yall won because now he is missing all the pre-wedding fun and having to book it from whatever bowl game yall have to play in. πŸ˜›

Oh and sorry for thread jacking!

HOWDY!

Yes, another Aggie here, Whoop! But my Fiance is not and doesn’t really know anything about Aggie traditions. We both graduated from college a long time ago (I am a 30+ yr old bride, so our college days unfortunately are not a big part of our every day hectic lives anymore, so I am not planning to incorporate any traditions into my wedding. And plus, since I am the only Aggie in my family, I think only I (and only one other invited guest, who’s also an Aggie) would probably be the only two people who would understand the meaning behind the traditions if we did include it in the wedding, lol. πŸ™‚

@SaraP2012I think its great that you and your Fiance are going to incorporate Aggie traditions into your wedding, it makes total sense, b/c hey, if maroon blood runs deep then totally go for it, because it speaks to both of your interests, background, and personalities, plus the fact that you both met at A&M, so its great to tie that in. It will be great, having a grooms cake pay tribute to Kyle Field, etc. I am sure there’s lots of ideas you can incorporate. Are you planning to include maroon in your color scheme, its such a pretty color. Lol on being a June bride b/c for the convenience of football season, but sounds pretty logical coming from an Aggie, right? πŸ™‚ Good luck with the planning!!!!
