When you have a unique or "busy" dress, the best hairstyles are simple, pulled back with a diamond or rhinestone comb, or even something with simple pears. Earrings but no necklace.

During the wedding, a delicate veil can be added to the hair for an elegant look

Robot Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper Wood Statues with Base (photo)

Robot Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper Wood Statues with Base 6

Photographer writes:

Robot Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper Wood Statues with Base

A great and unusual way to celebrate an upcoming wedding or anniversary, unless you are true robot fans than this would be normal! As always, my own design, I created this cute robotic couple standing together out of wood. The groom is dressed in the latest tuxedo with silver white shirt and dark bronze (the robot version of black) tux with black tie with a single gear flower boutonniere. The lovely bride is wearing a robotic white (bright silver) gown and matching veil with her heart button a light blush color. She carries a feshly made bouqet of finely detailed, real metal gear flowers on metal stems. Both are smiling...

Just about all wood except for a few tiny bits like the real metal, tiny detailed gears (even the bride's veil is wood!). This creation is about 5" long (or wide) at the base, the bride and broom figures themselves are about 3 1/2" high by about 3" wide, standing together (remember, 2 1/2 centimeters to an inch).

While this would make a fine cake top it would also be nice as a centerpiece or display table decoration and then nice keepsake for the couple. Consider it also for an anniversary party or, table top statue of an unusual bent...

Made almost 100% from wood unless stated otherwise (I sometimes use tiny amounts of other things) I use paint and many finishes, often metallic, and make sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain itself despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others ... I am told that surprisingly many do not even look like they are wood, but like metal or some manmade material... you can usually tell by the photos).

Made of Wood! Part of my "Retro Tech" line ... I build a lot of different things like ray guns, robots, rocket ships, flying saucers, other machines, telescopes and more in many different formats from full size prop replicas to miniatures, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, pendants, etc ... see my main site found through my profile which has many more photos and information. I do a lot of classic looks, but am expanding into more modern and a lot of steampunk, too!

Egyptian Themed Wedding Cake by Charm City Cakes (photo)

Our Wedding Cake, originally uploaded by thepalmtrees.

Beautiful unique cake with an Egyptian feel!

The bridge writes:

Our Egyptian-themed wedding cake, courtesy of the folks at Charm City Cakes. For those of you not familiar with CCC, they're the bakery featured on the show Ace of Cakes. Not only did the cake look amazing, it tasted incredible! Unfortunately, the only taste we got was when we initially cut the cake. The folks working at the place we had our reception cut the pieces too big, so there was none left for us! But, the good people at Charm City Cakes even managed to take care of that. When they heard we didn't get a piece of our own wedding cake, they said to call us on our 1 year anniversary and they would make us a smaller version. True to their word, they prepared another cake, about the size of the top layer of the original, with decorations and everything. This time, we ate every last bite!

If you're looking for a wedding cake (or any other type of cake for that matter), I can't recommend Charm City Cakes enough!

This photo was taken by the wonderful ladies at Three Blondes and a Camera. If you live in the Mid-Atlantic area, and are looking for a photographer for your wedding, etc., I couldn't recommend them enough.

I did these today for a New Idea Magazine kids shoot. They wanted a nautical theme. I don't know how well they'll be seen in the magazine. (fingers crossed you can see them!) I realised I LOVE painting! I must do more with modelled decorations as I enjoyed doing them. (I made the designs up myself so was pleased they turned out).

floating flowers, originally uploaded by pixietart.

These crepe paper flowers are a beautiful touch to a forest wedding or one in the woods. Use fishing line to create the look of floating or flying flowers.

These are in yellow, red, and white. Mix throughout the area so guests have something follow. These would look lovely in the garden.

Wedding Streamers for Bride and Groom Exit (photo)

I loved these streamers!, originally uploaded by mcclouds.

From A Classy Touch:

A Classy Touch writes:

These streamers flow out at a slower pace than ordinary throwables so they are wonderful for photo shoots! You put a finger through the loop of the capsule, hold the capsule turned upward in hand, remove the lid and throw over-handed toward the bride and groom. The streamers unravel in every direction to create an exciting splash of color yet the capsule remains anchored to your hand for easy clean-up. This is a great substitute for rice or ordinary throwables as they have the desired effect of covering the couple. This is not confetti!

They are easily recovered as you simply gather all the cups and throw them away with the streamers attached. These are accepted by most churches, synagogues and reception sites as there is no clean up! These are sold in boxes of 24 per color. A box of 24 white or pastel is $55.92.

Bride writes:

I found this idea online (super easy cleanup as they stay attached to the ends) and looked all over the place for them. I was finally able to find only one box in a store I never would have expected to have them. One box was more than enough! I thought they were a fun alternative to rice and bubbles!

What Can I Use instead of Rice or Bubbles? (Answer & Photo)

SJP0986.JPG, originally uploaded by Susie Ellsworth.

If you want something other than the normal rice (which is dangerous for birds), birdseed (which is just messy), bubbles (which are wet), there is another option that your guests can take home... WEDDING STREAMERS!

Where to buy WEDDING WANDS? Look below--

You can even have them personalized here:

Little Things Favors

Or here at Candy Coated Weddings:

Or Halo Heaven:


Or go if you want to MAKE YOUR OWN WEDDING WANDS

"Wedding wands are the fun alternative to tossing rice, birdseed, confetti or bubbles at the happy couple as they leave the reception and to welcome the new "Mr & Mrs" to the reception. Wedding wands are normally made of lightweight plastic with a long streamer of ribbon attached to it. Normally, the ribbon is personalized or contains a printed message such as "Happily Ever After" or "This Day I Married My Friend". Purchasing pre-made wedding wands require some assembly, so why not make your own? For the do-it-yourself, crafty brides this is an easy and relatively inexpensive project to make for your wedding."

Follow this link--

Good ideas to remember to match yoru color scheme, vary lengths, and personalize them so your guests have a memento to take home with them.
