Now that more and more young couples are paying for their wedding, more radical changes are taking place.
The cheese wedding cake is now the latest wedding craze among couples at the UK.
According to The Fine Cheese Co.: "Cheese wedding cakes have one huge advantage over a more conventional iced fruit cake, they feed the hungry while still looking the part."
"We have often heard grooms say that it is the part of the wedding that they are looking forward to the most.
The bride usually wants the cake to look good, and the wonderful thing about cheese is that it really does, especially when it is stacked in tiers using supports and decorated with the wedding flowers or fruits in season."
