Will Projection Mapping Become the Next Wedding Cake “Decoration” Trend? 

Over the past few days, I have seen several bits and pieces on the Interwebs—here and here and here, for starters—referring to the new wedding-cake “decoration” technology that Disney recently unveiled at their Fairy Tale Wedding Expo (after having patented it, of course).

It’s called projection mapping, which basically means that animated images are projected in light onto an all-white cake, which acts as a blank canvas-kinda projection “screen.” The rather mesmerizing result—however you might feel specifically about Disney images—is definitely ooh- and ahh-worthy:

It’s not often that when someone uses the term “labor of love,” they are talking about such extreme and extended actual physical labor, but in this case, I think the term literally applies.

John Greenwood, a groom in the UK, decided that it would be really lovely if he actually personally procured the gold that would be used to make an engagement ring for his now-wife, and so he went into the Scottish mountains, and panned for it—like, with a pan, shovel, towel and rake—and did just that. Oh, and he did it for so long—18 months, to be exact—that he ended up with enough flakes, nuggets, chunks and specks to create gold wedding bands for the two of them, too.

The Pew Research Center has just put out a whole bunch of new data into the world that sheds some interesting light on the marrieds—and non-marrieds—of the world.

Apparently, for the first time in basically forever, not-married people outnumber married people in this country. (They’re guessing it’s because people are a) getting married a little later in life these days, and b) more and more people seem to be living together, and even raising children together, without ever officially tying the knot.)
