As I mentioned yesterday, I found a bakery to make our wedding cake! We are going with Barb of Sweet Cakes Design. It was the first "official" cake tasting D and I have done but I have tried quite a few other places between bridal shows and just hopping in for a cupcake. Her style matches what I had been envisioning and when I told her what I wanted for the look and feel of the cake she got it immediately! (trust me, this was a HUGE selling point!). She was also a sweetheart and her buttercream frosting was amazing. I am really picky about frosting and usually end up scrapping it all off so the fact that hers was light, stays in place with heat, and not sugary sealed the deal!

If any of you are getting married in the Western Michigan area I highly recommend taking a look at Barb.

I don't know if i had mentioned before but I also found a dress I LOVED while in San Francisco. It was in a small shop that sold all designer dress at discount prices (from trunk shows, store models, etc). Unfortunately the shop was closed but I managed to snag a picture of it from outside the front window. I contacted the shop in hopes they could help me out with who the designer was but they never got back to me. Imagine my surprise when I came across the very dress while flipping through Brides Magazine today. The designer: Vera Wang... go figure haha. I usually can pick out the most expensive thing in a store and that definitely was the case this time. A girl can dream though can't she??

Once I can find a picture of it online I will post it.
