These Take The Cake!

If you're looking for something different to do at your wedding reception that's not totally over the top, why not consider cupcakes in place of a traditional wedding cake?
Of course this idea is nothing new. Cupcakes have been the trend over the past few years, and I think it's a trend that's here to stay.

Keep in mind that they are not for every bride, but they are a fun way to add personality to your day.

They are an unexpected detail, which offers a wonderful surprise for your guests, especially the more traditional ones.

Because of their versatility, a variety of flavors can be offered.

Not only are they fun and unexpected, but they are also economical, especially if you prepare them yourself, however I do caution against this for the bride…unless you have a lot of help!

They make for a great photo opportunity, as they are a wonderful way to enhance your décor.

As you can see they serve a multi-purpose…fun, décor enhancement, economical, and let's not forget to add that they are certainly a favor option, one that is sure to be used…or shall I say eaten!

So why not let these delicious treats, serve you and your guests well, and take you back to your childhood?

They Do...Again and Again

We could all take a page from this celebrity couple's book of romance. Heidi Klum and Seal were married four years ago in 2005. They celebrate their anniversary every year by recommitting to each other in a renewal ceremony.

How's that for keeping the romance and love alive in your relationship? I think it is a wonderful idea for couples to adopt as their own, if not every year perhaps every few years or at least milestone years within the relationship.

Seal has been reported as saying "We love it. It's great saying your vows again. You remember who it was you fell in love with. It's also a good excuse to have a big party, and we have a different theme every year."

Amongst other ideas, they have planned an Indian themed party for a small group of friends and relatives to celebrate with them. Not only is this an expression of their love and commitment to each other, it's also a great way to keep the creativity flowing in their relationship and keep things fresh. Gotta love this!
