Has anyone considered skipping the cake?  I can't decide if I really want/need a cake. 

 

Do any of our married girls have pics of your cake? 

 

Oh, and my bridesmaid realized that it wasn't fair to me to skip my wedding based on her feelings for another guest, so it's all good now! :o)

 

 

We are totally skipping the cake :) My FMIL thinks we need it but i don't. We have a dessert buffett so if i have to I will cut a piece of cheesecake for a photo opt

Meghan - I asked you to be my facebook friend.  :-)  Can't wait to see your pics!



TLGnhci - We're kind of skipping the cake.  Just going to get the small $60 one for cutting purposes (I'm totally not for this but FI, my mother and apparently everyone else under the sun thinks photo ops are necessary).  We're going to just order extra petit fours (if we think that's needed) and also I'm going cake box favours that I'll arrange like a wedding cake (filled w/ candies).

 

Glad to hear that your bm decided to put her feelings aside for your wedding.  That's great news.  And CONGRATS  cheer2.gifon the "official" engagement.  Size 4?!?!!?  Holy tiny fingers batman!!


Meghan, I requested you as a friend too!! 

 

I like the idea of just doing the small one.  What are the petit fours?  What do you have in mind for your cake box favours?  Sounds interesting. 

 

 

And Maggie, what is the dessert buffet?  I can't seem to get any information out of my WC.  When she does email me back, I don't understand what the heck she is saying, so I pretty much rely on you girls for everything!! :o)

We are skipping the cake too!  Glad I am in good company.  We are going to have one at our at home reception as my Aunt is making it, so at least that's something different for at home that we didn't have in Mexico.

I want to skip the cake, but FI thinks you HAVE to have one for a wedding.  He is actually being insistant on the main wedding cake AND grooms cake.  Ugh...I think I'll have to work on him for this, cause I can think of much better places for this money to go!

Tisha - you are hilarious!!  I love that you have your wedding mostly planned without the official engagement.  Makes for an even better engagement story!  Is that on Time Square?!?!

You can see a pic of my cake if you click my review under my siggy.  You'll also see that it was a DISASTER!  However, as far as I know, I'm the only bride to come through with a disastrous Karisma wedding cake.  We did a cake tasting with our onsite WC when we got there.  Their standards are chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.  The first two were just so-so but the strawberry was to die for.  Our dinner also came with flan, so they way it worked was that we cut the cake in front of everyone and then they whisked it away to the kitchen.  They plated flan with a piece of cake for each person.  Everyone loved the cake so much that there was none left sad.gif

 

Hooray for your BM seeing the light!!!  It's refreshing when someone realizes the wedding is about you and not them b/c it doesn't happen all that often!

That is too funny about not being engaged until this weekend!  Many CONGRATS!!

Check out the Petit Gourmet Buffet package in the Private Banquet packet. That is what we are using for our reception

Petit fours are little desserts/pastries etc.  I'm not sure exactly what comes with it.  We're doing the buffet dinner for our reception (buffets are just my style - more laid back than plated meals) and it's what comes with as the dessert option.  I figure we'll chat about it when we get down there.  If we're worried there won't be enough then we'll order more desserts and or change the cake order.  But probably just more dessert and stick w/ the cheap cake.

 

The favours I'm doing are just these boxes that are shaped like cake slices.  You can get them at any of the party supply stores.  I'm going to fill them with candies and then set them up on an actual cake tray and do it up so it looks like a wedding cake.  That way it will serve as decoration on the dessert table and fill people's sweet tooth as well.

Can you tell me more about your dessert buffet, we have been talking about that since dessert is my favorite part!  I haven't seen anything for that in the catering packet, so any information you can give me would be awesome!  Thanks!!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
