Baking these charming wedding cake cookies will be the easy part. It's the tiny dots that will have you chained in the kitchen from morning till midnight. That's why these would make the perfect bridal shower cookies - 12 or so (as shown here) to impress the girls over buttery French croissants and chamomile tea. Your favorite sugar cookie and royal icing recipes, three sizes of small round cookie cutters and cake decorating bags and tips will be all you need to get the job done. Here is a great step by step tutorial on how to make these stacked wedding cake cookies.

Cheap bridesmaid dresses - not in my day, but a new (better) day is dawning. My youngest daughter Danielle was getting married in April on a Saturday morning before noon. Always the thoughtful one, she wanted affordable bridesmaid dresses for her friends - something classic and chic. She found perfectly beautiful black cocktail dresses online at Target for less than $50 each. The girls looked sexy and sensational. Today I found these two styles (among several others) of chiffon bridesmaid dresses at Target online for only $69.99. Fully lined, machine-washable and available in six popular colors.

Black wedding gowns - seductive and sensational! We may have a slightly guarded relationship with the people of Paris, but there's no denying they have fun breaking all the rules. Haute-couture is a French term for “high dressmaking” and refers to custom-fitted clothing with expensive fabric and extreme attention to details, like this lovely black ruffled wedding gown. Our French friends love the boldness of the color black and whoever doesn't love the look - so what!

Beach theme wedding cakes - especially popular here in the resort city of Virginia Beach, with our white sandy beach and three-mile boardwalk. If you haven't been to this city by the sea, come for a visit, but don't pack your bags until after Labor Day. That oceanfront hotel room that went all summer for $179 may now be yours for half as much. Come and enjoy a hot (cheap) breakfast of bacon and eggs at Mary's on 17th Street, a local favorite for over 40 years.
