Weekend Wrap-Up: Birthday Edition

This weekend was my oldest brother's 36th birthday and my grandmother's 68th! Friday we celebrated Jihad with tacos (from the best taco truck in town), cake and ice cream. Fun fact, I make a cake for every birthday in my immediate family. It's almost always yellow or confetti with chocolate icing or if it's for my mom I may do carrot with buttercream :) On Saturday he headed out to DC for a sightseeing trip with my nephew's mentor group so my parents and I headed to Charlotte to surprise my grandmother for her birthday!

The Groom's Guide

Yesterday I asked newly engaged brides if they had any questions that I could write a post about that would help them as they pursue planning for their big day. Well, while I was brainstorming I thought that this post for grooms might be a good place to start. More often than not, the wedding day turns into the BRIDE'S day and the groom doesn't get too much attention. I think there is a stigma that grooms don't really want to be involved in the process and yes, sometimes that's true. But it's not all the time.
