Un Jour Peu Conventionnel
I have one more wishful wedding indulgence that cannot/will not/could not possibly take place in real life. Since I’ve always been a dreamer, I’ll express it anyway!
I would love to have one of our wedding-related celebrations at Laduree, a cake and pastry shop specializing in French goodies. I’ve fallen for their perfectly-organized store interiors, cute window displays, fancy packaging, and unique sweets. So what’s holding me back from booking my ladies-only festivities there? The location.
In beautiful script, the boxes proclaim their home base: Paris, France. Le sigh! I can’t wait to go to France someday. Usually when I say this aloud, I receive a terribly cynical response from someone who’s been there or someone who knows someone who’s been there. Despite the dream-dashing comments, I still would love to go. And I still know that I will love it there. Laduree has opened more locations in Europe and Asia, but I’m looking forward to visiting the Paris bakery one day. Since a Laduree wedding cake is out of the question, maybe we could save up for one of these babies for our tenth (fifth? first?) anniversary:
Mmmmmm…it doesn’t even have to be delicious when it’s this pretty. 😉
