Morning buds! So excited to share that I can cross off another wedding detail off my list – the cake! Ryan and I went to our cake tasting on Friday, and man it was a lot easier than I thought it would be and of course delicious!

I was apprehensive to just go with the bakery recommended by our reception venue, so we met with the baker.
Andrea put Lilac Dude and me at ease with a book full of photos and a great go to attitude. She recommended that we bring in pictures of what we wanted and not just try to pick out something from the book.
So we returned to Johnnie’s Bakery in Canton with a few photos that we wanted merged into one cake.She assured us that it was possible and she definitely delivered! The cake was exactly what we wanted… and I mean it looked exactly how I pictured it in my mind.
I’m a detail-oriented person so I think as I begin to share the elements of the Lilac wedding with you, I’ll share some details first. Bring on the pictures….
I know that in my previous post I said that my mom was planning on making our wedding cake. I would still be 100% thrilled by this ideas as she is a very good baker but she is having reservartions due to the fact that she wouldn’t be in her own kitchen and that she will be flying in with the rest of my family only two days before. So I have signed myself and Mr.Pom up for a cake tasting! I am further along in our decision about colors and saw this cake and fell in love with it. It’s simple but so pretty:
Because Mr.Pom and I are very concious of the amount of money that can be spent on a wedding we are trying to keep all of our costs to a minimum. We are the kind of people who do not want to spend our life savings on one day and then have nothing to live off of. We are also not the type of people who are willing to have their parents spend ten’s of thousands of dollars on one day either. So we find ourselves in a very lucky situation with the friends and family that we have. I say this because here are the things we are cutting out of our spending budget.
Photography-my mother and brother are excelent photographers and honestly I’ve been to weddings where people have spent thousands of dollars on photography and somehow my pictures turn out very similar and just as good as the professional. I’m not at all tooting my own horn, but rather saying that you don’t get what you pay for. We are also going to put together a way for people to take their own photos in a feauxto booth 🙂
Cake-my mom is also an excellent baker so as of right now she has decided that she would like to bake a cake for everyone to enjoy!
DJ – Mr. Pom’s brother in law and cousin have been and are DJ’s so between one of them mixing our tunes and the other brining some fantastic sound system with him we are good to go!
Where are you cutting back on the costs?
