Wedding cookies

Is in the air.  I have been working on ideas for wedding cookies this week.  My son Drew and his beautiful fiance Genevieve are getting married next May, and I am so happy for them.  First and foremost, we are welcoming Genevieve into our family.  She is everything I could wish for in a wife for my son - intelligent, thoughtful, and loving.  Isabelle and I are thrilled to have another member for the girl team.

 And now for a guilty confession - Izzie and I are wedding show junkies.  Say Yes to the Dress, My Fair Wedding, Amazing Wedding Cakes, and (I can't believe I'm going to say this) occasionally Bridezillas.  We laugh and eat popcorn.  Don't judge. 

Of course, we can't wait to see what Genevieve picks for a wedding dress.  Will it be a one shoulder mermaid?

A classic ballgown?

Would she go for a ruffly skirt?

Or something couture?

And if this wedding excitement isn't enough, I am making cookies for my friend Nancy.  Her son is getting married next weekend and we are doing cookies for the rehersal dinner.  Little wedding cakes would be cute.

This next idea has been done a million times, but it is fun.  The bride and groom cookies, using a gift package cookie cutter for the groom and a heart cutter for the bride.

I also like the idea of monograms.  Michael and Lindsay's wedding colors are tangerine and purple so I did some with those colors.

Then I tried it adding white as a third color.

I know what are my favorites are.  Which would you choose?

  16. How pretty! I am just amazed at your stunning cookies! Gorgeous! BTW, I love wedding shows too though I've only been to one. That was enough to easily convince me of why anyone could get addicted to them. Too bad we only get married once..LoL!

  17. Hi, I am Lynn coming from Trish's party. I really like the wedding dress cookies for a bridal as long as they don't show the "Real" wedding dress design, lol. Also like the cookies with L O V E and lacy effort. Congratulations on your son's engagement and upcoming wedding next year. Will go a lot faster than it seems. Lovely to meet you. Blessings.
