These starfish inspired wedding cakes fill me with joy. Who needs a traditional wedding cake topper when sweet little starfish stand in for the Mr. and Mrs. I've always been lucky to live by the sea. I often forget it's a ten minute drive to the place where a twelve-ton bronze statue of King Neptune gazes down over boardwalk and beach. People in Pittsburgh wish they had it so good. I need to remind myself why beach themed weddings are common in this tourist friendly town. It's all about fun, fresh air, and loving each other - family and friends.

The Wedding Book - at nearly 500 pages, it's a step-by-step wedding planning book (for many years a best seller) that covers everything from the pros and cons of destination weddings to freezing the cake and preserving your bouquet. All the traditional advice and so much more including: suddenly pregnant bridesmaids, same sex ceremonies, what goes in a thank you note - and what doesn't. Mindy Weiss is a celebrity wedding planner and if you need her, she'll be your guide. I find Pinterest has so many useful tips such as "10 Websites for Making Wedding Planning Easier" and "33 Insanely Smart Ways To Save Money On Your Wedding" that a book like this might be nice but no longer necessary.
