I'm expecting about 100 people and I don't know how much to order.
OOppss...sorry I missed that question. Umm I dont remember exactly but Im pretty sure I ordered 2 extra pounds of cake. We were 40 people in total and only a few of them had any cake. Not even hubby or I had any cake (except for that little whip cream we tasted for the picture lol) There is so much food and drinks that people are pretty full to have any cake. To be honest, the cake wasnt that good...it was very dry inside.

Wow I can't believe that we are only about 7 weeks away. Now that my shower and bachlorette parties are done, I need to sit down this weekend and create a plan of attack for the remaining things that I need to work on, yippy.
Taking my vases in people's carry on was not an issue for me eiher as we were 40 people in total and I only had 5 vases; the problem was that the airlines wont let you in the aircraft with glass (unless you put it in checked luggage) as they consider that it can be used as a weapon. They say you can take the risk at the gates, but its pretty much a no. So I decided to take the chance of bringing them in my checked luggage rather than have them taken away. Guess that didnt work out too well lol
But Im thinking that 9 inches isnt so tall...if you wrap them well in bubble wrap and then pack them well amongst all your clothing, im pretty sure they sould be fine. My centerpieces were about 22 inches and had a top and a round base ;(
