I won't lie. Something inside me loves the idea of balloons at weddings. I know, I know. This is soooo easy to do badly. At the same time, I've seen it in a few instances done really well, particularly when you stick to using opaque, solid color oversized balloons. It can make the whole thing look so whimsical and airy...
Check these weddings out:
When it comes to things that could be tacky unless done exactly right, I rarely ever do it exactly right. (Which is why I try to stick to simple, classic stuff as much as possible.) But this is sooo cute, and I'd love to try it out.
No idea if we could incorporate this at either reception, since I think I'm already getting close to overdoing it with both receptions. But if I can't do it, and if you are the kind who can pull things like this off, maybe you should do it at your wedding...and send me pictures, so I can live vicariously through people far more talented than I. ;)
Have you ever wondered where the tradition of having a wedding cake comes from? You can find the answers in the Spring 2005 issue of Gastronomica, wherein Carol Wilson recounts the long history of wedding cakes.
I think my favorite part is the recounting of royal wedding cakes--500 lbs. and 9 feet around! Can you imagine how nerve-wracking it would be to have to deliver monsters like that?!
This table gave me some great ideas for set-up as well as for some tasty desserts. Going through Diana's websites gave me even more great ideas for things we can put on our table (and made me hungry!) So much deliciousness!
