I bought my first wedding magazine this weekend, and it is unbelievably gorgeous! More perfection from Martha Stewart. To be honest, I felt a little silly buying it, as my wedding will be teeny-tiny, with only immediate family attending. Even though my wedding is small, everyone keeps reminding my fiance and I that we "only have 4 more months to plan it". I keep reiterating that we're casual kind of people, and that amongst the reasons to have a small wedding is the lack of stress in planning a larger affair. However, it is time that we pull out the little planner notebook I bought and get down to business. In a couple of weeks, we're headed for Cedar Key to pick a tiny old church, a minister, and a place for our reception dinner. And I suppose it's time to register somewhere, but where? Suggestions? Everything we want comes from Etsy or Home Depot. Not that we haven't been looking, but so far we have only made one wedding related purchase: Our cake topper. We're earthy people, and have no need for a large cake, so the sweetly simple pair of birds from Middleburg seems a perfect fit. And the best part is that we will display it in our home after the wedding as a lovely piece of folk art.
I'm a rather non-traditional girl, so I love these interesting cakes. I really like the simplicity of the white cake with the spray of branches, and may try to incorporate some branches into our cake (although it will probably only be one large tier or two small tiers).
