I'm in the works of booking my DJ! And no, this adorable kitten is not going to be it. Though, that would be a conversation piece! I'm not sure this kitten would get all the songs I've picked out played at the appropriate times...something to do with opposable thumbs. They're kinda necessary in a DJ...
In the meantime, I've been trying to pick out our dance/misc. songs: first dance, father/daughter dance, step-father/daughter dance, cake cutting song, bouqet toss, garter toss, last dance, etc. (David isn't dancing with his mother in case you were wondering...they're not the dancing type for some reason) I have some pretty good ideas, but the only one David and I are in complete agreement on is our first dance. We'll just have to see on the rest.
Another biggie...David has officially booked our honeymoon. Hawaii, here we come! We had a little snag with the proposed itinerary getting out there...there was a thirty minute layover in the LA airport and I told David that was a big no-no. I don't want be running late on a previous flight and miss that one! Plus, I don't know how many times per day a flight goes out that direction, but I'm sure it's not hourly... I wouldn't mind a tight layover on the way back, but not on the way out. Who wants to miss a possible day of vacation? Not me!
Things are also coming along nicely with the florist. I've gotten some good estimates on my mine and the bridesmaids' bouqets and am looking forward to working with her! Next: boutonieres, corsages and cake flowers!
It doesn't appear that I ever mentioned my "official" cake baker...as I look back through my archives. And the cake is an important part! I actually ended up picking the baker that the Dominion House typically uses if brides don't have a preference. She works out of a small house next door to her home, but she was impressive. She knew everything there was to know about the venue and she's, literally, across the street from it. Plus, her cake samples were BY FAR the best. Most bakeries give you four, or so, samples and you pay for extra tastings. This baker, Rosebeary Designs, sent me home with nineteen, yes NINETEEN, cake samples. My mom, David and I kinda went crazy when we got back to Edmond...despite her telling us to "take it easy." Eh...who has will power when it comes to cake? (Disclaimer: this pic is NOT of my cake samples...it's just to give you guys an idea. Mine were in little, plastic cups with squirts of icing on top...all nineteen of 'em!)
That's about all for now...this wedding planning is all fun and exciting, but there are stressful moments. It's amazing the things people say to you! Some are good, some are kinda rude...but, in the end I believe everyone has good intentions. I look forward to planning the rest of this wedding throughout the next five months!
