We had 15+ varieties of cupackes at this she'bang, and I had one. lemon. cupcake. Future brides: stop talking to people and eat your cake!
Husband was just as worried about his blues as I was about my dress. Actually, probably more so. (They are more expensive) - so we decided no face-cake-smushing.
