Wedding Wise Wednesday - July 7th

Every Wednesday, I post the best wedding stores, events and deals in Los Angeles and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

This is the coolest wedding thing I've seen this week:
And, of course, it's Martha Stewart weddings. Yes, it's a wedding bouquet made of seashells. And, yes,there are step-by-step instructions on how to make it. And that's a good thing. Yeah, I can't believe I went there, either.

The Events
This weekend, we are back in business. It always makes me nervous if nothing much is going on Wedding Wise, so I'm a happy camper:

Thursday, July 8
Cupcake Showdown
6:00pm - 9:00pm
The LA Artwalk
620 S Main Street
As you well know, cupcakes have been THE wedding cake alternative for a little while now, and here's your chance to try some of the best. The Cupcake Showdown 2010 is bringing together 10 of the best cupcake bakeries from the city to compete for the title of the best cupcake in the city. All you need to know is that each of the cupcake bakeries will be giving out 300 FREE mini cupcake samples to the public. Now, that, ladies and gentlemen? Is a happy hour. Check out the link for more info and a list of participating bakeries.
