Written by Cindy English

Continued from page 1

A couple of things to keep in mind though...

* Since your reception may be onrepparttar beach, considerrepparttar 137840 sun! If you are having a dawn or dusk ceremony, heat fromrepparttar 137841 sun will probably not be a major factor. However, if you are having your wedding midday, consider an "ornamental" cake. By that I mean, not edible withrepparttar 137842 exception of perhapsrepparttar 137843 bottom layer if you andrepparttar 137844 groom plan to cut it. You don't want your creation to melt!

* Consider draping your cake in a decorative manner with tulle to keep repparttar 137845 bugs and sand out of it. It would be beautiful yet practical.

* Purchase decorative, individual cake boxes. Fill them and perhaps tie your wedding program or thank you to them with ribbon. Keep them in a cooler until time to pass them out to your guests. They will serve as your wedding favor, killing two birds with one stone!

* Make your own beach theme wedding cake! Look insiderepparttar 137846 next "Duncan Hines" cake mix you buy. The instruction for making baking tiered cakes are printed onrepparttar 137847 inside ofrepparttar 137848 box! You can do it. If you can't, I'll bet you know a friend who could! In EVERY town there is a friend or a "friend of a friend" who makes beautiful wedding cakes. It's a hobby for them. They love doing it! Of course they still want to be paid, but notrepparttar 137849 ridiculous prices that a professional will charge you. So...go... find that friend!
