Ahhh! Another cake bride! Yay, we should compare notes. πŸ™‚ I’m doing a slightly scaled down trial next week. 

So, my list thus far is: cake, centerpieces, Save-The-Date Cards, favors (not sure what yet, though) and possibly table runners if I get ambitious.

I’m doing one full-on two tier round wedding cake (hopefully, I’m trying my first dowel, cake board, whole nine yards experience next week!) and then a handful of regular layer cakes that’ll have little flavor cards by them, and do it kind of buffet style so people can choose what they want. I thought that’d be a lot of fun, and I just couldn’t bring myself to shell out $700-$1,000 for a cake from a bakery that I would be hypercritical of anyway. 

Our theme really depends on what venue we get… we’re not locked in yet, just have a few in mind, but we’re going for artsy urban with rustic hints. This is our first choice venue right now:


What about you? I’m really excited to find something else going to DIY route with this, tell me all about your wedding/cake!
