So I couldn’t decide which to post so I figure why not post both.
The first is a fun bachelorette party idea inspired by a fellow WeddingWire member’s bachelorette adventure to Las Vegas. Here’s a fun way to dress up your personal sized champagne bottles from Social Couture.
The second is fun and creative wedding cake I found on DIY Bride (who has been featuring wedding cakes all month). While not the easiest cake to make yourself, it still represents the creativity available to each bride for their wedding. Happy Friday!

Because there’s a sweet tooth in all of us, sometimes we just need to go with a chocolate wedding cake. Here’s some ideas for creative designs that use chocolate in their wedding cakes.

Check out the world’s largest wedding cake! Built for the Mohegan Sun casino, the vanilla cake is about triple the size of the previous world record-holding wedding cake.
Today, at the New England Bridal Showcase, Mohegan Sun unveiled what it hopes will be the world’s largest wedding cake. Measuring 17-feet tall and weighing 15,032 pounds, the seven-tiered cake is almost three-times the weight of the current record in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s largest wedding cake.
The Mohegan Sun wedding cake is vanilla flavored and decorated with bows and hearts. Ingredients include: 10,000 pounds of pound cake batter and 4,810 pounds of creamy frosting with a taste of vanilla and almond. Comparatively speaking, the cake weighs more than five Volkswagen Beetles and can feed up to 59,000 people.
Chef Lynn Mansel, Mohegan Sun’s Executive Pastry Chef and resident “Michelangelo of batters and buttercream,” began creating the cake on Sunday, February 1st in the Uncas Ballroom. Along with his team of 57 chefs and pastry artisans, Chef Mansel baked 700, 18×24 inch vanilla sheet cakes. Then, using frosting as cement, they created 200, five- and six-layered bricks, which were put together to form the tiers of the wedding cake. Steel discs were used as cake separators and two fork-lifts helped raise each tier as the wedding cake took shape.
