BLD Knottie Get Together!

Tonight I went to another Knottie Get Together! We went to BLD in LA. Yummy food! It was a lot of fun! We had a smaller group this time, so we really got to get to know eachother a bit better. As always I can't wait for the next one. I wonder if I will ever be able to move over to the nest. I just LOVE being a knottie!

MMMMMM.......Cake Tasting!

Friday, Josue and his mom, and me and my mom went to Beverly's Best Bakery in Fullerton. This was our first wedding cake tasting, and we were about ready to sign with them, but we wanted to hold off and wait to see if we can find a bakery that has red velvet cake (my favorite)
However this bakery had a unique cookies and cream filling that was AMAZING!!!

This is a picture of my parents wedding cake, we are modeling our wedding cake after this one, cause we like the "two hearts become one" theme that my parents had at their wedding. I know it's kinda corny, but it's sweet.

Our cake will have three tiers stacked on top of eachother, with two heart shaped cakes on the side. The tiers will have black ribbon on the bottom, and white scrolls. The heart shaped cakes will have black scrolls.

The accents on our cake table will be red, as well as the cake topper so the cake will be black and white. But this picture shows an idea of what the scrolls will look like. And we will have NO flowers on our cake. I don't like the idea of live flowers on our food. I keep picturing bugs in our cake ;)

Wedding Trends of 2008

These are some interesting wedding trends that I read about, thought I would share. Some of them I love, some of them I hate. But I think everyone should have a unique wedding, with whatever trends they want, and whatever elements they love! The unique weddings are always the one's I remember the most!

First trend: glam. Yes indeed, glamorous weddings are in this year. Say goodbye to the simple and quiet wedding. The trend this year is to shout it out to the rest of the world and let everyone know about your wedding. Elegance and sophistication are the themes for this year’s weddings. Then again, this is just a trend and it does not mean that you should follow it. Good for those who have a taste for the glamorous, though!
Second trend: pay particular attention to the back of the wedding dress. Common sense will tell us that most of the time, the wedding guests will be seeing the back of the bride as she will be facing the minister. As such, the trend is for embellished backs. No matter which style you choose for your dress, try to add a little more detail and flair to the back of your gown.
Third trend: go for something that will make a statement. This is in regard to the color theme for the wedding ceremony. From the bride’s gown and the groom’s suit to the flowers and decorations, the trend is to use rich and bold colors such as purple, gold, orange, and the like. Gone are the days of cute and sweet pastels. Of course, you have to choose something that you actually like. More than that, make sure the color of your gown will suit your skin tone as well. Making a statement does not mean that you should not take your aesthetics into consideration as well.
Fourth trend: be square! Being square is a good thing, when it comes to tables that is. Round and rectangular tables for the reception are not the in thing this year, mainly because square tables facilitate interaction among the guests better. More than that, it is easier to plan the layout of the reception area when using square tables. Adding decorations are also better with square tables.
