I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Fiance and I had a lot of fun just hanging out. I got my giant margarita on friday. We watched a lot of Lost and spent too much time in our sweats. It was fun and those are some of our favorite times together.
I also wanted to tell my readers, I'm sorry if my posts are becoming all about my wedding lately. I kind of just started this blog becuase I have enjoyed reading other people's blogs and I wanted my own. I have found that its also become a good place to post wedding pictures and ideas. All of you "Mrs.'s" give me great feedback. So, on to the wedding :)
As far as favors for my wedding, the only favors I wanted were ones that people could eat. I have been to wedidngs where they had other favors, haven't we all? But honestly, I thought it was cute at the time and then in attempts to de-clutter, I usually threw it away. I contemplated a candy bar, but I feel like everyone is doing this. So instead, I am having a home-made dessert bar. My family is big into baking. My Grandmommy used to make 15 different kinds of cookies at Christmas. My Mom used to bake with us a lot. I still remember pulling the kitchen chair over to the counter to "help." Its funny to watch my nephew do this now.
Those are fun memories for me and its part of who I am. My plan is to have around 5 or 6 different cookies from our families. Then have cellophane bags with our "label" (also known as a monogram) on them for the guests to help themselves. I am going to write little display cards that tell what the cookie is and "whose" it was. For example, "Mom's Everything Cookie." Yes, you've heard of the Everything Bagel? Well my Mom makes the Everything Cookie . . . out of this world
I know you all are thinking, when am I going to do all this? Well, I have thought that through. I won't be working the two weeks before the wedding. So one of those days, I am going to bake and then just freeze the cookies. They will all freeze well. Then the day of the wedding my "wedding coordinator" can take them to the site and set them up. Still getting used to that idea - the wedding coordinator.
