The Constitution

 I love Political Science. As a little girl, I would sit in a chair glued with my encyclopedia set. I would read with great interest each President. When I teenager I kept journal of the convention in which my younger sibling found starange. As adult it was a great soap. Instead of the Young and the Restless,I was tuned into the Bold and the Beautful of Poltical Science.
So when think about Poltical Science in America...we are inspired by the Constituion...be inspred
by history.

The Cake

After you have finshed most of plannng, it is time to order of the cake. This process should be done
3 to 4 months before your moment.Take a friend or two or honey, then sit down wth the cake
baker. When you interview that person, make sure you look actual samples as well their album.
Then at some point, even if you have to pay, taste something they haved baked.
The contract should include: the cake, the flavors, the construction, time devlivered, and rental
fees....as well your set fee.

Then there should be some discussion if you are going to keep the top layer of your cake. Many people do,  I did, for a week, oh well, so much for that theory.

The bridal class...find a local bridal class for cool ideas.

The Yogurt Shop

There is a great place in the city of Decatur for Yogurt. It is a wonderful place for a whimsical wedding.  Pretty paper laterns in geometic patterns hanging from the ceiling is pretty much all you.
With a white tea length dress with black flat sneakers.
With a solitst, a bango, you have a moment.

When I was married,  I took a historical novel and make it my wedding reception. It kept the day really simple. A simple lunch in a ballroom gown.
