"It’s an interesting mix of people," Stout said. "After all the stress in the last couple weeks, we just want it to be fun."
Amidst all the attention from the proposal video, the celebration has taken on a life of its own.
"We can’t call it small and quaint anymore," Reeser said. "I think we might have planned something more casual to begin with, but now all these people want to see it."
Groomsmen and maids of honor have been enlisted, including Elmer, and her children will be flower girl and ring bearer. Colors will be neutral: white and taupe. Reeser, an interior designer, has "taken charge of aesthetics," Stout said. Layers Cake in Bountiful is preparing a three-tier cake of offset squares in champagne velvet and carrot cake — "architectural and masculine," Stout said.
The couple also is expecting a special guest: pop singer Betty Who, whose "Somebody Loves You" provided the soundtrack to the Home Depot proposal, has offered to sing an acoustic rendition of the song at the ring ceremony.
"It’s been so awesome," Stout said.
Stout and Reeser are considering making some video to share the day with the many online friends who have taken an interest in their marriage since the proposal.
"I don’t want to confirm or deny that," Stout said coyly. "Check our Youtube channel."
