Poor amysjustpeachy icon_sad.gif I know you are exhausted from worrying! I am doing the same thing!! Is the wedding over now? Please let me know how it turned out. My first wedding is in April. I'm going crazy trying to plan everything so I won't have to worry the week before the wedding BUT I know I'll still worry. I will worry about the wedding after the wedding LOL icon_cry.gif I hope your cake was a wonderful success!!! thumbs_up.gif

tcturtleshell--

This cake was the most frustrating one I have ever done.....as one example, I found out when I was able to take the cake to the reception hall and arranged with a bridesmaid (also a florist) to do the flowers when I set up the cake. When I mentioned that to the (very young) bride earlier in the day, she giggled, saying that the bridesmaid THOUGHT she could do the flowers with me, but that the couple were going to surprise the wedding party with a Hummer ride. I was frustrated, but couldn't change my time.

Pardon the venting icon_smile.gif, but I got the cake layers there and assembled it rather quickly and was even complimented on the cake by the reception hall staff. It stayed firmly in place overnight and was a great success, so I've heard. There wasn't any cake left, which bothers me, but that's not really my fault, and is sort of a compliment.

One of the nicest things about doing cakes is that complete feeling of relief and satisfaction you get when it's over, after you've worried yourself sick for days. At least that's the case with me!

Hang in there, you'll do fine!!
