    MMy wedding was perfect: a miraculous, 52-degree day during an otherwise freezing Boston winter. Friends and family smiling. A gorgeous dress. A tasty cake. Blue-tinted hydrangeas flown in from Japan. And the storybook, love-at-first-sight romance at the center of it all.

    There isnt a thing I would change about that day; its the honeymoon Id do over.

    Specifically, Id do it at another time.

    Couples planning a wedding face obvious pressure to go on a honeymoon immediately after the tying of the knot. They want to seize the moment and indulge in a romantic, intimate vacation while still riding the wave of wedding euphoria. They want, as we thought we did, to escape the obligations of family and friends by running off to a tropical island far, far away.

    To which I say: Reconsider. Delay that postnuptial vacation.

    A belated honeymoon is the No. 1 piece of advice that Carley Roney, editor in chief of TheKnot.com, offers engaged couples.

    You should never leave the morning after, said Roney, who delayed her own honeymoon. You want to have that time with your friends and family, because so often people are coming from far and wide, and then you disappear.

    Couples should still plan the honeymoon in advance, Roney said, but book it for five or six months after the wedding. That gives them a chance to double-dip: They can be around friends, siblings and parents during the next-day playback, when everybody is still happy and willing to dissect the event as many times as you want. Then you get to relive the passion of your wedding day a few months later, when you go on your honeymoon.

    Baseball stadiums, poker chips and racks of saucy ribs dont usually come to mind when you think wedding. But these manly pursuits have found their way to the dessert table through a new breed of grooms cake that is more elaborate and personal than ever. Traditionally a gift from the bride to her new husband, the grooms cake was usually a simple affair, made with fruit and liquor, and perhaps chocolate. It is believed to have originated in Victorian england and arrived in the united States in the mid-19th century, where it became popular mostly in the

    South.

    Take todays trend of highly personalized weddings, add the fact that more grooms are involved in wedding planning, and throw in the popularity of extreme baking shows such as TLC networks Cake Boss, and youll find that humble grooms cakes have evolved into works of edible art.

    While traditionalists still honor the groom with a plain, round cake, many couples are ordering cakes in the grooms favorite flavor and in the shape of golf clubs, fishing gear, football helmets, smart phones, and guys-night foods like burgers, pizza and hot dogs.

    Its really about the grooms interests and his hobbies and something thats reflective of the groom, said Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings. A wedding is

    about the two of them. Thats one detail that can be all about the groom.

    After last springs royal wedding, at which Britains Prince William requested a grooms cake made of biscuits, the popularity of the cakes among u.S. couples is likely to get another boost, Miller said.

    All eyes were on that wedding, she said. I think (Williams) grooms cake will definitely help inspire the growing trend here.

    Grooms cakes originally were served at weddings. Today, they also appear at rehearsal dinners or day-after brunches. Wedding planner Tara Guerard, who owns Soiree in Charleston, S.C., urges her couples to enjoy the grooms cake at the rehearsal dinner to give the groom a night in the spotlight, so his cake doesnt get overshadowed by the big white one.

    A lot of our grooms want this grooms cake, sh
