What was nine feet around, weighed 300 pounds, and was 14 inches high? Give up? Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's wedding cake. Though that much of any baked item is extreme, most about-to-be-betrothed couples choose to have some form of sugary deliciousness to cap off their wedding. No longer relegated to three-tiered, white-icing cakes, the reception dessert table now often presents tasty delights such as cupcakes, fine chocolates, or make-your-own sundaes. Check out the numerous bakeries listed to find the confection creator that's just right for you.

In addition to legally binding yourself to the one you love-and having a great party-weddings are arranged to have all eyes on the bride as she glides down the aisle to her beloved. As such, at the top of her to-do list is sorting out hair and makeup. Some coiffures specialize in up-dos, while others focus on giving you the perfect cut. Then there’s your mug-finding the artist who understands your look is key, whether it be gothic, understated, scary clown, or a natural look. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options to choose from on these pages, whether you’re looking to get just your tresses done, focus solely on makeup artistry, or need a combination of the two.

Ask most brides-to-be and they'll confess their wedding is all about the dress, which makes sense considering the generally hefty price tags that accompany bridal gowns. Throughout the years, wedding formalities have been loosened, allowing brides to get all kinds of wacky when it comes to their frock-mini-skirts with a 10-foot train or $12 million diamond-encrusted gowns. Whether you're looking for a dress that makes a statement or want to look like the princess you are, you can find the wedding gown designer and/or shop to bring your dream to fruition right here in S.B.

Wedding parties have been carrying flora down the aisle for centuries. In ancient times, brides would wear stinky garlands of garlic, herbs, and spices to ward off evil spirits. Thankfully, those smelly items have been replaced with sweet-scented flowers, but their symbolism is no less significant. Roses represent love, lilies virtue, orange blossom purity and virginity, and so on. Whether you're selecting flowers based on what they stand for or just because you like the color, you're sure to find what you want at one of the many florists in town.

Andrew Van Gundy

Corinne LaVasseur and Clint Unander were married by Gerald Torres in July 2008 at Gainey Vineyard.

Back in the day, couples didn’t have a lot of choices regarding who married them. It was either a member of the clergy or a judge. Now, the selections have expanded to include officiants and celebrants who help make the vow exchange a personal, unforgettable experience. You can either choose from someone practiced in the art of marriage or have your favorite person licensed for the day. Simply send said person to the County Registrar’s Office (1100 Anacapa St., 569-2250), where they will be given a list of rules to follow and must swear to uphold the Constitution. And voil , an agent of the state is born with the power to legally bind you and your beloved in matrimony.
