Opinions on cupcakes for my upcoming wedding and DIY programs?

by DIY wedding planner on December 7, 2011

We’re having a desert buffet at our June, 3pm wedding. I am having a smaller scale two tier wedding cake with vanilla pound cake and lemon filling.

I am also making cupcakes as part of the buffet. I like these :http://www.bhg.com/recipes/desserts/cakes/cupcake-recipes/?page=8

I am trying to avoid excessive frosting because we do live in GA and it will be hot. Yay or nay?

Also, I am making my own programs. I want them to be simple, cute and crafty. I am also making our centerpieces: button bouquets.

What do you think about these programs? I think they tie in the look.

The colors will be pink.

Your thoughts? Any ideas that could help?
The buttons will tie in our button bouquets, which will be places on every tables. The wedding is pretty casual, btw. This is an example of a button bouquet, ours will be in tin cans I have collected :http://relishbridal.blogspot.com/2009/02/button-bouquets.html

I will hot glue the buttons on the front after we print the programs.

I like the cupcake idea. ANd good thought on not using frosting! Very cute.

I don’t understand the button thing, but if it suits you then go for it!

The cupcake idea is wonderful! (I might steal it, too! :D )

Sounds great, and I like the program with buttons.
