My Mom

So my mom is getting married next Friday July 2nd. They decided last week that they were going to do this. Talk about fast! Well they are going on an Alaskan cruise on July 10, which they planned 4 months ago, and decided they wanted to be married before they went. I wonder why!! So now I am in super planning mod, which I haven't planned a wedding since I got married 9 years ago. Thanks so much to all the friends that are offering to help. A friend in our ward is going to frost the cupcakes for me and I am so excited to see them. I know they are going to turn out great. She is going to make chocolate butterflies to go on top. I already know that the cupcakes are going to be my favorite part.

Saturday after my yard sale, we went over to Logan and she found 2 dresses she likes, so she bought them both and she has until next Friday to decide which one she wants to wear. I told her now she has 2 new dresses she can wear on the cruise(unless she takes one back).

She keeps changing her mind on the menu. She put me in charge and then when I tell her what I am doing she says no, go figure. You would think she was a 20 something getting married not a 61 year old. Oh well, I am happy for her anyway, even if she is causing me way to much STRESS. 4th of July weekend is not the best time to get married. I don't suggest it, unless you have it planned months in advance.

Now the only thing I have to worry about is some sort of decoration/backdrop for the wedding. She can't be just standing up there with nothing, but that is last on my list, if I don't get to that then I don't. I actually think she is going to get married in the Relief Society room so I won't have to worry about it, maybe just get a pretty flower arrangement. Any ideas would be great.

Kristen Rylee (Mat Rylee's Wife) does weddings. You could give her a call and see what she has for a small backdrop. I'm sure she could help you with something. Not sure on the price but I'm not thinking it will be too much. Good luck with everything. I will be staying at my mom's all next week, if you need anything let me know. I would be happy to help.
