In modern Western culture, the cake is usually on display and served to guests at the reception. Traditionally, wedding cakes were made to bring good luck to all guests and the couple. Modernly however, they are more of a centerpiece to the wedding and are not always even served to the guests. Some cakes are built with only a single edible tier for the bride and groom to share. Wedding cakes can certainly range in size, from a small cake that feeds ten people, to a very large cake that will feed hundreds, all depending on the wedding.

 The Fall is just around the corner. If you are a bride with an October wedding date, this is an the time of the year to have an traditional wedding with more rustic touches. You have far more colors to chose from. Be inspired by orange, burnt yellow, deep reds, purple, browns and pine green. These colors are great when they are paired together.

That is where they got engaged. To them, the Coo Coo Clock was the perfect gift.  They knew we had really thought about them and picked out something that will always make them think of us and [...]
