We recently heard a story of a bride-to-be receiving a personalized wedding cake topper at her shower. It wasn’t on her registry. It wasn’t something she wanted. It wasn’t even something she liked. Yes, it was a sweet gesture (and cost a pretty penny). Should she feel obligated to use it at the wedding? Or should she stand her ground and make sure the wedding day reflects her and her fiancée’s tastes down to every last detail?
What would you do if you received a gift that was expected to be used at the wedding? Rant or rave!

When planning your beach wedding, think creatively about the food, drinks and desserts that will fit nicely with the warm weather and sunny ambiance. A sushi station or fresh seafood items are a great choice for an elegant menu, and colorful drinks and appetizers can add that tropical twist. Take advantage of the fresh fruits and fresh vegetables that are abundant in your specific destination and incorporate that in the menu to allow your guests to experience the local flavors. Wedding cakes decorated with sand and seashells are pretty and perfectly theme-appropriate!
