What’s Another Word for “Bridal”?

There are a lot of ways the word “bridal” is used at weddings.  There is the “bridal party” and there is “bridal seclusion” and probably a lot of other bridal things.  What if it’s the same-sex wedding of two men?  The word doesn’t seem to make any sense, since there is no bride.

Is there another word that works as well?  Well, we can say “wedding party” instead of “bridal party.”  What if the pair have decided not to see each other until the processional?  Is that “pre-nuptial seclusion”?  I hope someone comes up with a good word before I do my next same-sex wedding!

Vendors I Know: Swedish Bakery

I’ve walked by the Swedish Bakery in Andersonville for years, but it was only this past summer that I had the pleasure of working with them on a wedding.  I gave my clients the names of several bakeries, and they ended up having tastings at two of them, the second being Swedish Bakery.

I was able to join my clients at the tasting, so I saw first-hand how well the bakery works with clients.  Not only were the cake and the frosting delicious (and, according to my clients, much better than the other bakery where they had a tasting), the bakery’s wedding specialist also did a great job helping my clients with the design process.

On the day of the wedding, everything from them went perfectly, too.  They delivered on time and with the cake in perfect condition.  And it was gorgeous!  The cake itself tasted as good as the tasting cake, too.  Everyone was happy with it.

You might pass over Swedish Bakery thinking that it’s an ethnic specialty shop, but, in reality, it is a bakery with a wide range of capabilities.  Their wedding cakes are delicious and beautiful to look at.  What more could you want?
