Wedding Wise Wednesday - October 6

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

First of all, just in case you didn't see Molly Ann's response on last week's Wedding Wise post of her awesome ring pic, here it is:
"The mustache is one of those candy "wax" mustaches that the bride had on hand to entertain the toddler flower girl. I stole it before the flower girl ever saw it because I thought it would be awesome for ring pictures later.

There was also a pair of candy "wax" lips that I pilfered as well, and gave to the bride and her friends during the reception, we got some hilarious dancefloor pictures as a result! You can find the mustache candy at Old Time Candy."

This Week's Cool Wedding Thing - Lego Wedding Rings. As you can imagine, it's another thing that appeals to my inner geek.Click on the link and see Gizmodo's other examples, including a lego bride and groom ring that would also make an awesome cake topper.
