So, we have opted out of the entire bridal party thing. We're in our mid thirties and second marriages for both of us. However, we do want to incorporate our children into the reception festivities. We're planning a sand ceremony to symbolize the blending of our two families. I'll talk about that more during a later post.
Today, I created my first inspiration board for the girls' dresses. Although we are not having a bridal party, our girls will be dressed in beautiful gowns and the boys in handsome tuxedos.
I have decided to allow the girls to pick a dress of their choice. However, the dress must be one of our wedding colors. Here is my first inspiration board to help our princesses out. What do you think? Did you have a problem deciding on your flower girl dresses?

Signing off as I admire the anemone some more,

We had a chance to check out some reception venues. I am in love with two venues. The first being the Sacramento Grand Ballroom. This venue is gorgeous. The architecture is what I'll define as vintage. It's timeless and very classy. Perfect for a simple, yet glamorous affair.
Another great thing about the venue is that they offer wedding planning and catering services. It's something about one-stop shopping that I have a weakness for. It could be that my schedule does not allow for me to devote 100% to planning this wedding. I would love to do it all. However, although I do think I'm Super Woman, it's clear that I'm simply human. I cannot plan the event of the century, while also completing my last semester of law school and studying for the bar exam. It just isn't gong to happen.

So, before the wedding planning starts, I think all engaged couples should attend pre-marital counseling. It should be your first appointment. That's right, do not schedule any wedding planner, coordinator, venue or photography appointments until you schedule the appointment with your certified marriage and family therapist.
Do not wait until you have problems in your relationship to seek counseling! Why not build the tools you will need in order to combat and deal with the problems are will encounter during your lifelong marriage? Pre-marital counseling sets you on the path to a successful, respectful, happy and lifelong marriage.

I love this blush and ivory peacock wedding cake. It's simply glam!
This peacock cake has a touch of glamour with the simple elegance of the colors pink, ivory and gold. I love the heart-shape feathers. Simply beautiful! Although I'm not crazy about the bush the peacock sits on, I'm sure this can be removed and designed to my specifications. I'm also sure we can use silver instead of gold and perhaps add touches of turquoise. This cake deserves a triple. Wow! Wow! Wow!
Below are some of my other simply unique finds during my Google image search. Have a wonderful and wowing Wednesday. LOL!!! I've been reading too many books by Dr. Seuss.
