Happy Easter everyone!
I know it has been a while; we have been pretty busy lately.
Today I wanted to share A FEW of the websites that I go to almost every day to get ideas on weddings, parties, the details etc. We shared one with you already – Pinterest – www.pinterest.com. Others are –
I am sure most people know this but www.etsy.com is also a very good place for a lot of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) stuff. Photography, Videography & Cake websites/blogs are also a good source as well. I will post on them later.
These are only a few of the sites. I will send out some of my other inspirations sites in another post.
Deciding on the cake design was also pretty interesting. I looked through a bunch of pictures which I will share with you. Thanks to Wale, Yewande and Nanyie who went went me on my cake tasting spree at different times. I think the final decision made was a good one! I pray it turns out good on the big day.
When Wale and I started discussing what we would like, we wanted a simple and elegant cake. We did not want anything too big especially because the bigger the cake, the bigger the $$ :-). Fun fact – just because you might have seen a huge cake at someone’s wedding or on a blog, it may not be ALL cake; some people do not mind substituting cake with Styrofoam on some of the layers of the huge cake. Styrofoam is a cheaper option. OR You can have a smaller size cake and have sheet cake as well which can be cut up for the guests OR just have cupcakes for the guests. Cupcakes are quite popular at the moment and most people love them. Sometimes, these are much cheaper than ordering a huge cake to feed all guests.
As I began looking I came across these cakes; people also sent me different ideas. It is not an easy task, trust me! There are too many cake options – traditional white wedding cakes, tiered cakes, floral cakes, cakes with macaroons etc. But just like when I found my wedding dress, I knew it when I found THE ONE!

Bridesmaid II – Monisola Baruwa
Finally, I would like to introduce Bridesmaids II – Moni so so!!! ATL Shawty!
This babe and I have known each other since 1996! We went to Trinity International College in Ofada, Ogun State, Nigeria together. She was a year my senior and boy –o-boy did she milk that! Lol! We began to get close and became members of the “contour” family, lol! Over the years, Moni and I always kept in touch and a lot of people actually used to think that Moni lived in DC because she was here quite often – Moni just accept your fate and move to DC! Lol!
I love this babe a lot! She has been there through the years; knows most of gist! She met Wale as well and they clicked. Moni has also met my family members and I have met hers as well and they are all great people. I have also met some amazing people through Moni who I have developed relationships with as well. Moni is a crazy, fun loving person; she used to be quiet & shy until she made a decision in her life and everything changed; she became crazy!!! Lol! Just kidding!
Thanks for allll your help boo and thanks for saying YES to being a member of my bridal party!
