Rules of Engagement actress and Jenny Craig spokeswoman Sara Rue put her new hot body to use in a wedding dress recently and could not be happier.  “I feel so lucky to have found someone as kind, funny and smart as Kevin (Price),” she recently gushed in UsMagazine.com. The two wed Saturday in a beach-themed affair, held at the Bel Air Bay Club in Malibu.  The guest list was small, only 112 total for this “small and intimate” affair (according to wedding planner Rachel Hollis).  “One of the first things Sara ever told me was that she was obsessed with butterflies and hummingbirds,” Hollis spoke of the reception.  “She loves specifically hummingbirds.  She had this idea of a vintage inspired garden party and it evolved from there.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Your big day should be everything you wished for and more, so why not change it up?  Instead of the traditional wedding and reception, here are a few ways Cupid guarantees your wedding will stand out from others:

1. Themed wedding: Most feel this is tacky, but what better way to stand out?  Agree on a theme with your partner and give your guests the most unforgettable wedding reception they’ve ever seen.

2. Top chef: Most of your guests have been to these before.  They’re over the traditional, cliché reception platters.  Switch it up by considering a hibachi-style sushi bar or other personally-made entrées.

3. Make it meaningful: Share the amazing experiences you’ve shared with each other with everyone else throughout your special day.  Select food and decoration choices based on what you’ve gone through as a couple.
