Wedding update #2

One hundred forty-four invitations are in the mail. Monday we got them back from the calligrapher and spent the evening assembling, checking stamping and sealing them. E took them to the post office Tuesday. The invitation is the “Two Tuxes” design is from OutVite.com. Mailing the invitations for our wedding has been a very nerve wracking experience. Up until now it has been just a planning exercise. Now it is a commitment that 250 people know about.
Other items checked off our list include deciding and buying the wedding rings and the wedding cake selection. Last Saturday, E and I and my two young kids tasted seven cakes. We chose a rich sour cream chocolate cake with a cream cheese frosting that is flavored with a touch of rum and vanilla and finished with chopped chocolate on the edge. Wednesday, I ordered two grooms to put on top of the cake from an internet site called twogrooms.com.
We also found a florist. In addition to flowers, the florist will create unique table decorations for each table at the reception dinner. The theme for each table will be a musical or play.
Still to do…
Two more pre-martial counseling meetings with the Rabbi. Tasting and selecting the wine and champagne. Finalizing the dinner menu. Picking out our tuxes for the wedding.

The cake sounds fantastic. Fritz and I had a good one also--done by
a close friend and gourmet chef. All the gay wedding cakes I've had have been several notches above the taste-free white cakes at most straight weddings.

Great news, guys--I'm looking forward to hearing about THE day.

Invites were mailed with "Spring Flowers" commemorative series (Iris, Tuplip, Daffodil, Hyacinth). Reply card had the "Love" stamp.
