3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.

How do I love thee?Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of everyday's Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

If your groom wants to express himself, the Groom's cake is a good place to let him have a say. It is traditionally a much smaller cake and thus allows one to play with less formal themes with with far less consequences. He can play up a love for golf or fishing, whatever! My husband had a groom's cake decorated like the helmet of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

The early Egyptians and Romans made the cake a special part of the wedding celebration. A thin loaf of wheat or barley was broken over the bride's head at the close of the ceremony to symbolize fertility. Because the wheat from which it was made symbolized fertility, the guests eagerly picked up the crumbs as good luck charms. During the Middle Ages, it became traditional for the couple to kiss over a small cluster of cakes. It was good luck if the bride and groom could kiss while leaning over the cake without knocking it over. Later, a clever baker decided to amass all these small cakes together, covering them with frosting. Thus, the modern tiered cake was born. It wasn't until King Edward II did the cake actually become edible. During his reign was the cake first iced white and eaten.
