Cake Toppers

Until I started shopping for cake toppers, I never knew how many options were available! It is ridiculous! Just for reference, check out this website: http://www.weddingcuts.com. And this is just ONE of the many internet vendors out there. It’s crazy!

I did finally find what I want: A single black “W” in some kind of block lettering to go on top of my cake. I don’t want anything too curvy or scripty; it’s just not us. (In fact, that’s why neither Ross nor I like weddings very much; see the Details page!) But I do want it to be black so it will go with our black & white theme. It was so hard to find, but I finally located it! The only problem...it costs $100! Geez!!

I’ve been looking for alternatives, and I think I might go with a wooden painted block letter from another online vendor I found: http://www.craftcuts.com/painted-wooden-letters.asp. At less than $20, that’s a major savings over the $100 legit cake topper. And I think we can make it work...but I’m not sure! Any thoughts from readers out there? If so, email me: march4th@gmail.com.

Wedding planning...what an adventure.

Save the Date Postcards

Earlier this week, we received our save the date postcards from our graphic designer, and I am so thrilled with the results! Danielle did a great job on the design, and I am so impressed that she put up with my pickiness and still wants to design the rest of my wedding paper as well. Ross and I addressed and stamped about 220 of those bad boys today, and I will be mailing them in the early part of next week. Watch your mail!
