Wedding Ideas - and a Giveaway!
So, can I just tell you how complicated it is to plan a wedding in Utah when the bride is in Idaho, the groom is in Canada, and the bride's mom is in Florida?
We did have some success in our whirlwind wedding planning adventure last weekend. We were successful in the search for a dress, a photographer, and a venue for the reception.
I was somewhat surprised at the number of vendors who told us we were coming late to the party, given that BD#2 has only been engaged for 2 weeks. Still, I think it can be done, and done well, even on a budget.
Now we need -
a caterer (complete with linens, china, silverware, etc.)
a wedding cake (and groom's cake)
decorations for the reception venue and food tables
So, I'd love it if you would share your recommendations for any of the above.
Now, for the fun part...
Several weeks ago, before all the wedding madness began, I promised another giveaway from all my Quilt Market loot. So here's your chance. If you leave me a comment, you will have a chance to win a mini charm pack of Aneela Hoey's Little Apples, along with the instructions to make the cute embroidered pillow from Quilt Market (you can see the pillow on my daughter's blog, here). Adorable, huh?
So, if you live in the Salt Lake area, and you can recommend a baker or florist or caterer, that would be so very helpful. (It's really hard to choose if you aren't from the area and don't know ANYONE, by reputation, or otherwise.) If you don't have recommendations for those, how about a great tip for an elegant and inexpensive idea for table decorations or for the space itself (indoors or out) - think large space and blank canvas.
So, please leave a comment with your recommendation, suggestion, or hint. If you're a follower, or become a follower, you can leave another comment for a second chance to win. This Giveaway will close Saturday night at midnight, and I'll draw the winner sometime Sunday afternoon.
Thanks for your help, everyone! I'm looking forward to some great new ideas!
PS: Be sure I have a way to contact you if you win... If you're a "no-reply" blogger, I don't have a way to contact you.
