Lose the cliched wedding cake
Lisa A. Flam, AP, is no hopeless romantic. Have you priced a wedding these days? That big old cake could break you!
Instead, a Phoenix couple rolled out their own favorite—gelato. Another couple scooped the spumoni.
“We’re not cake eaters,” sniffed one bride. (I, however, know a guy who agreed to get married just FOR the cake, but as usual, I digress.)
Cupcakes are another option. Or cheesecake (which I count as cake, although the teeny bride and groom statues may sink).
How about an ice-cream sundae bar?
Lollipops? (OK, on the cheapster side.)
How about candy necklaces? Or a cotton candy machine?
I would get our neighborhood ice-cream man, Grampa, to officiate over dessert—when he gets out of jail, that is.
