Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

When Tim and I set out to get stuff done, we get it done. So we have been getting wedding related things done right and left!

Last weekend we undertook the grueling but necessary task of getting things done with regards to cake. We had decided since we are having a cocktail party style reception cupcakes would be the most appropripriate (and yummy!) choice.

We had gone to Yummy Cupcakes a few [thousand] times, for research purposes and loved their cupcakes. Saturday, we went and put down a deposit. Still not sure of the flavors, but whatever they are they'll be yummy. ;)

In other food news, we scheduled our appointment to do our tasteing with the caterers.

Things are starting to come together and Tim and I are both starting to realize, "Oh my goodness! We're getting married!" :)

Double Platinum

Tim and I are finally on a tear to get things done for the wedding.

Yesterday we went wedding ring shopping. We went to Tiffany and looked at the rings we had already looked at on their website, they looked just as good in person and that was that.

Here are the rings all wrapped up pretty from Tiffany's (with my lunch from the Century City mall food court in the background...mmm wrap sandwiches).

To see the actual rings, you'll just have to wait until the wedding. We need to save some surprises.

Halekulani... 「ハレクラニ」

Another day, another major thing knocked out.

Today, perhaps the most fun part of wedding planning was taken care of.

We booked our reservations (flights, hotel) for the honeymoon.

We'll be staying at the Halekulani, in Honolulu. After some frustration in finding a place on Maui, I googled something like "best honeymoon locations" or something like that. After ridiculous option after option, Halekulani came up. Now, this was Forbes's list, so of course most stuff is beyond the price range of us mere mortals. And of course, they were talking about the Vera Wang Suite, which costs more than the entire honeymoon, but, baby steps. :)

Flights: Cheap at $5 apiece. Yay miles.

And we made reservations at La Mer, their 5-star restaurant.

Should be a great time. And the phones will be off the hook, so don't bother trying to call. :)
