I am so excited. Planning is in progress for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. This one is not going to be a surprise, but we are planning many surprises within the planning.

We have not pinned down the venue yet. We are trying to get a local Manor that does really nice weddings. The menu is great, they have a nice bar for those that want to take advantage of that and the atmosphere is wonderful. We are going to try and pin down that location today. The other place I have in mind is the place where we did my father's Surprise 60th back in September. It is at a resort and is a Mansion that has been prepped just for weddings and parties. I may post pics of both places later and see if anyone has any opinions. They also have great food, nice atmosphere, etc.

I booked the entertainment this morning. We are having a gentleman who has been performing locally for a long time, but who has also cut his own records many years ago and who performs in Vegas and other places do the music. He is fabulous and a lot of his focus is the music that my parents would have enjoyed and was in style when they were younger. We also had him at my dad's 60th.

I called the cake artist just to reserve the date. She gets really bogge down with wedding cakes. We have no hashed the details yet. I am unsure which we want to do at this time--try and replicate their wedding cake OR just have a really nice 2 or 3 tier cake done and loaded with roses, etc and a special cake topper. I think replicating their cake is a neat nostalgic idea, but the cakes this woman does are usually SO much nicer than cakes, even at fancy occasions were back then. We shall see.

That sounds like fun! I'm actually planning for my parents 30th anniversary this year (May). Maybe we can get some ideas from each other.
