Off to the land of sun and Mandrina’s family and friends

So I’m a bit terrified. I’m going to be greatly outnumbered — but my friend Iuli would have come along had she not been moving this week, so thanks to her — but I can do this.

We’re off to tour possible wedding/rehearsal dinner/reception sites in Florida. I’ll be mostly off-grid — call my cell-phone if you need me.

I’ll call you as often as I can, ’cause I’ll need all of you.

    I don’t have your e-mail address, so I’m putting these links here. I hope these links help to answer your questions about the function of the Groom’s Cake in modern weddings (Southern or otherwise). I was not aware of the more superstitious aspects of this cake, but apparently you are doing a disservice to the spinsters of the world if you choose not to have one. 🙂

    Oh, and I’m watching Steel Magnolias right now and they are about to hack into that poor animal that looks like it’s bleeding to death.

    Thanks, Tara, I’ll take a look at them.

    We’ll let you know before we let the vendors know what we decide. There’s too much right now — we’re not exactly about to pick cakes tonight!

    Yeah, I’m a sucker.

    She played the “I’ll be embarassed when someone asks where the groom’s cake is” card.

    There will apparently be a groom’s cake. I’m not totally sold, but… *sigh*

    And why is it called a “groom’s cake” when all I get to do is give it to other people?
