This just in...

Bachelorette weekend in San Francisco is BOOKED!
All I know is I have to be in the city starting Friday, October 1 and I won't be leaving until Sunday, the 3rd. So freakin' stoked right now!!! :):):)

Florist, Caterer, Venue = touched base.
Scheduled my final consultation with my amazing caterer. She practically acts as the day of coordinator so we'll be letting her know all the pertinent deets. :)

The damn cake.
I don't know why this is so hard. Maybe because I have a hard time justifying paying $500 for a cake I probably won't even eat and definitely don't want. But I know the guests expect it... This has probably been the most challenging thing so far.

Shower numero uno is in the works.
I'll be having two--one for family/friends and one for work--the work one officially has a date, September 18! My boss rocks. Just a little FYI. :)

Gifts, gifts, and more gifts.
I figure I need gifts for each of the following
  • My boss (shower hostess)
  • My Aunts (shower hostesses)
  • Ushers (3)
  • Bridesmaids (3 + 1 junior)
  • Groomsmen (4)
  • Flower girls (2)
  • Mom and Dad
  • FMIL
  • Guestbook Attendant/helper
  • Photographer (a bad ass gift too as she's doing our photography as a wedding gift!)
  • Officiant
  • I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them...
What did you do for gifts??

THE CAKE WOES BLOWS!! I hope everything works out! if I was there I would make you a fake cake (with real top tier) for FREE just how you like it...and then you could serve sheet cakes to the guests...maybe you can contact someone in cali to do that for you it would be tons cheaper

wonderful news about san fran!! you will have a BLAST!

Have you thought about doing a dessert buffet... very popular now-you don't have to go the traditional cake route. I agree the guests will expect dessert of some kind, but if you're not a cake girl than think outside of the box :-) (I have a friend that did a tower of donuts lol)
