Every couple wants to feel on top of the world on their wedding day, but one adventurous couple took this very literally by tying the knot on… Mt. Everest! Yep, the tallest mountain in the world…. definitely not-your-average nuptials, right? Plus, they managed to pull it all off in full wedding getup and everything. Well, one thing’s for sure… you’re guaranteed one heck of a wedding photo album (pics here, in case you’re curious!) to look back on. Mountain weddings, in general, are amazing. The picture above is actually from a stunning mountaintop winter wedding shared on WeddingLovely a couple of years ago. Enjoy:

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Sorry, couldn’t resist… really though, there’s nothing sweeter than a yummy dessert station at a wedding.
Well, now, you can say “yes” to the … ice cream? This week Blue Bell introduced a Bride’s Cake flavor, and re-introduced their 09′ Groom’s Cake flavor, sure to delight couples looking for an alternative to the traditional wedding cake.
What exactly is it? The Bride’s Cake is almond ice cream with white cake pieces surrounded by a rich amaretto cream cheese icing swirl, while the Groom’s Cake is chocolate ice cream with chocolate cake pieces, chocolate-coated strawberry hearts plus swirls of strawberry sauce and chocolate icing.
Uh, sounds delish.

Ahhh love! Turns out I’m not the only one tired of the traditional wedding bouquet as florists are reporting sales for cacti and succulent bouquets doubling in the past year. Brides are ditching conventional and swapping out roses for cacti, succulents, vegetables, vines, cabbage plants and sweet corn. They’re even surprising guests at the reception, incorporated oh-so-prettily into gorgeous tablescapes and various decor elements. Worried about knocking your Aunt Mary out when you toss the bouquet? Worry not. Your florist may be willing to arrange a smaller throwing bouquet for you!
