Today's wedding news: Who cut the cake?

In a tight economy, brides and grooms are looking to cut the cake (see beautiful cake to right)-- down to a smaller size, and with less extravagant frosting. All types of vendors are seeing couples scaling back plans (one couple spent $2,012 for a wedding), whether it's opting to forgo live music or a limousine; using artificial flowers rather than real ones at the ceremony; postponing the wedding until next year; selecting less expensive days of the week to hold the wedding; and shrinking guest lists. Some in the wedding industry hope to stay above water with big-budget weddings paid for by people who are impervious to current economic conditions. [Miami Herald]

I don't think couples have a choice in this economy but to cut back!
