You know the tradition of saving the top layer of your wedding cake to enjoy on your first anniversary? Well, I’m here to tell you a better idea than celebrating with stale, freezer burned cake.
The idea comes from Andrea Carusetta-Blaut, founder of Sedona Cake Couture who suggests saving the sugar flowers from your wedding cake and having them put on a brand new mini cake you can enjoy on your anniversary! Genius, huh?
Here are her instructions on how to preserve sugar wedding cake flowers:
– Wrap each flower individually in tissue paper and place in an air- tight box.
– Seal the box and store where it will stay dry and away from any light.
– Kept sealed, they will last forever.

You know how second marriages usually aren’t as traditional as the first ones? How about a fun-filled second wedding inspired by The Flintstones?
It started as a joke but two couples recently said “I do” while dressed as Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty! Best of all, the guests dressed as cave men and women…
How fun are these photos?

Have a great weekend!!!

If you haven’t already been told, it is indeed true that some people will return the RSVP card without any identifying information. Annoying I know! The good news is that most people will respond properly:
The best way to solve this (and you’ve probably been told) is to secretly number your RSVP cards in the same order as your invite list.
If you’re like me and can’t stand the idea of scribbling a number on your pristine RSVPs, here’s what I did to solve the problem….
I placed the secret number under the stamp! For the mystery responders, I simply peeled back the stamp and voila, there was my magic answer!
I also like the idea of using an invisible ink pen if you’d rather go that route.
How are you planning to deal with this issue?

So you’ve got the gown of your dreams and you’ve run through the getting ready photo list with your photographer, right? Here’s a little tip that you might not have thought of…make sure your wedding gown has a pretty hanger to accompany it in all those wedding dress photos!
This was actually my mom’s idea after she hated all of my sister’s wedding dress photos that featured an ugly plastic hanger. So, I got a padded hanger at the Container Store and some decorations from Michaels and voila, my mom whipped up this fancy, shmancy hanger:
Does your dress already have a fancy hanger?
