Wedding Fun!!! | Wedding Trivia | Wedding Cake

The wedding cake has some interesting history!  Before the days of smashing wedding cake in each others' face back in "the day," after the wedding the groom would bite out a chunk of a loaf of bread and hold it above the bride's head showering her with crumbs.  Guests would crowd around scavenging for crumbs hoping the morsels would bring them good luck.  The tradition evolved to the bride breaking pieces off of the wedding cake tiny enough to fit through her wedding band and gave it to guests for good luck.  Soon after guests were finally able to get an entire piece of wedding cake, but not to enjoy it at the wedding!  They took their cake home to put under their pillow for good luck and sweet dreams of their future spouses.  Thank goodness the tradition evolved to actually getting a yummy piece of cake and eating it too!  Even if that means the bride and  groom may smash it in each others' face! :D 

These cakes were made by Kate from Honeymoon Bakery in Rome, GA.  By far, my favorite cakes. They are both beautiful and delicious!!!!

Wedding Fun! | Wedding Trivia | Wedding Traditions

Since I spend most of my days, weeks and months working on weddings, I thought a fun thing to do from time to time was talk about wedding traditions, trivia and folklore.  Why not! It's always interesting to learn about the origins, sometimes pretty funky, of our most important traditions. So I'm calling it Wedding Fun on my blog! :D
My first post on Wedding Fun is about that dress! That gorgeous white beautiful dress!  But did you know that before the 19th century women wore any color.  It was the tradition to wear the best dress you own, any color, with furs, silks and velvet to impress the groom and his family. It wasn't until Queen Victoria's wedding in 1840 who wore a pale white gown with orange blossoms.  Apparently it was on  TMZ  and became all the rage! ;D  Now white dresses are the norm symbolizing purity and beauty.  I once had a bride wear a white dress with red rhinstones, and occassionally I'll have bride w with a colored sash, and bold colored shoes have really been a hit lately.  Way to think out of the box ladies!!! :D

Usually on a hot day like Saturday, I'm not interested in showing photos of me working a wedding because I am SO not picture worthy!  But I was very excited when my assistant snapped this shot of me with my bride, Cinthia!  You can't see any of the sweat all over my face, and the willow tree covered up some of my curves! Thanks willow tree!  :D  HAHAH!  And, check out that dress!!! :D

Nicole + Keith's wedding!!! | The Farm, Rome, GA | Rustic Weddings Atlanta

Having their wedding at The Farm in Rome, GA was the perfect choice for Nicole and Keith's rustic wedding!  It was a beautiful day, great friends and family, and the party was awesome!  One "favorite things" about their wedding was actually the energy of all of the guests at the reception.  Everyone was laughing, dancing and just having a great time!  It was the perfect way to celebrate Nicole and Keith's wedding!  Another favorite thing from their wedding was the flowers by Gail Williams of A Perfect Wedding Floral Design. She is truly one of the most talented florists I've ever worked with. She is so diverse and creative! I just love her proffessionally and personally!  Nikole and Keith were such a super sweet couple, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! :D  Congrats!!!
