Here Come the Moms Show #3 - Planning from a Distance with Sharon Naylor and Holli Ehrlich

Are you planning your wedding from a distance?  Join Sharon and Holli as they talk with a real mom and her daughter about their wedding planning experience while living in different states.

We asked Faye (mother of the bride) and Greer (bride) questions: How can moms participate when they are not in town?  What are the top jobs that can be done at a distance?  How do you handle shower plans?  How did you select the invitations and wedding attire?  How can moms provide emotional support from a distance?  What worked best - phone or e-mail? Faye and Greer discuss how they handled plans and decisions from afar.  It’s all about communication and this mother daughter team made it work.

Faye and Greer have a wonderful mother and daughter blog where they post beautiful ideas daily. They will inspire you and your preparations for that walk down the aisle.

Bridal Scene LIVE - Let Them Eat Cake benefit for City of Hope

The wedding cake has been an important part of the wedding celebration since Roman Times.  The wedding cake as we know it today, with layers, supporting pillars, & fancy frosting, has its origins in the wedding cake that commemorated the marriage of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters in 1859.  Through the years, the wedding cake has become the focus of a variety of customs and traditions.  Let them Eat Cake, a wedding cake competition is Philadelphia’s largest wedding fundraiser.  Now that’s a tradition worth talking about.

Mark Kingsdorf, owner of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants, founded Let Them Eat Cake in honor of his mother Lois’ loving memory.  Having been directly affected by a woman living with breast cancer it was a natural for him to start the Let Them Eat Cake for City of Hope’s Cancer Center.  It is a privilege to support Mark and join forces to raise awareness and much needed funding for cancer treatment and research.

More than 40 of the Philadelphia region’s top pastry arts professionals and students competed for “top chef? at the third annual Let Them Eat Cake benefit held at the elegant Park Hyatt.  Participants displayed their single best design and provided one totally edible creation.  Cakes were judged by culinary arts and wedding industry professionals including Carrie Denny of Philadelphia Elegant Wedding magazine, Thom Cardwell from Thom's Table, Michael Giletto from Cherry Valley Country Club and Phyllis Stein-Novack of the South Philly Review. The cakes were given awards for Most Artistic, Best Tasting and Best Overall.

Wedding Podcast Network interviewed many participants including aspiring students and culinary professionals.  We asked them about their personal designs & fillings.  We also asked them what they love about designing wedding cake.  Hear some great stories behind the scenes.

Hundreds of culinary enthusiasts and brides-to-be attended this amazing evening.  Once the cakes were sampled and judged the public - brides, grooms and Philadelphia foodies - sampled the entries.  What a great opportunity for engaged couples to see, taste and be inspired by a variety of different cakes that they may choose for their own wedding day.

Check out the photos of the cakes featured at this special fundraiser in this enhanced podcast .
