I wish I'd thought of it

We had an awesome wedding - it was full of friends and family, the food was good, the cake was to die for, and if there was any drama I managed to miss it!

As Frank and I attend weddings we look at things differently now, always comparing it back to our own big weekend. For the most part, I wouldn't change a thing - but now and then I see something and think "I wish I'd thought of that!"

The one thing I think I could have focused more on was cherry blossoms. We were married on March 29, 2008 - the first day of the 2008 National Cherry Blossom Festival. I included some (fake) cherry blossoms on the hotel gift bags, and gave my bridal brunch hostesses cherry blossom candles as a thank you, but that is really where it ended.

Now I see cherry blossom save-the-dates and cherry blossom invitations, I could have carried cherry blossoms in my bouquet, or used them in the boutonnieres and center pieces, and most of all, I could have had this, a cherry blossom cake! (only the first one, the others are 'cake wrecks')

I am certainly not complaining about our cake - it was beautiful and delicious and everything I ever wanted it to be - but I am a sucker for cherry blossoms because of how beautiful DC is during that time of year!

I think I mostly wish I had thought to use more cherry blossoms in our wedding because it wasn't 'cool' then (yet), and now it is! We could have been ahead of the curve.

Anyway, like I said before our wedding was a rockin' good time and while I don't regret anything I can't help but occasionally think "I wish I'd thought of that!"


  1. Oh sweetie, we all have those thoughts about something or other...You did an awesome job planning a fabulous wedding and everyone enjoyed the service and had a blast at the reception. It was wonderful. You and Frank can use cherry blossoms to celebrate your anniversaries for years to come! xoxo you know who
