Blush and Bashful

In case any of you haven't seen the movie, the title of this blog is taken from Steel Magnolias. Julia Roberts' character is asked what her wedding colors will be. She drawls, "My colors are Blush and Bashful." And her mother rolls her eyes and adds, "Her colors are pink and pink. It looks like GD Pepto-Bismal." In that spirit, this blog is dedicated to decadent, traditional Southern weddings and making fun of them. Along the way, I'll be blogging about planning my own Southern wedding in hopes that it can be as memorable as the Steel Magnolia classic. But for very different reasons.

And here's another piece of Steel Magnolia memorabilia and Southern wedding tradition, the groom's cake. The Steel Magnolia's groom's cake, of course, was in the shape of an armadillo and when cut, the red velvet cake gave the impression of road kill.
