LIKE MANY brides and grooms the day before their wedding, Antoinette Tamba, 22, and Charles Waum, 36, admitted having a case of the jitters. "I'm scared to death," said Waum. It wasn't that they were unsure of their decision to marry. Waum and Tamba have lived together in Columbia since 1998 and have a 2-year-old daughter, Macarl. The source of their nervousness was their elaborate wedding plans, including more than 500 invited guests. Originally from Liberia, the pair had planned a ceremony and reception incorporating traditions from their native country with American conventions.

I've never really done anything by the book. I also didn't spend the entirety of my childhood planning my wedding. But the man of my dreams, Brian, dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him, so here I am, planning my own wacky wedding. I never planned on getting married on my actual wedding day. What if I forgot to sign something during all the craziness? So when a friend suggested we get married in Las Vegas since we were already going to be there for her wedding, it was kind of a no-brainer.

In the midst of the summer wedding season's waltzing and toasting, many avowed collectors are matching up with romantic collectibles that are hard to top: bride-and-groom wedding-cake ornaments. These mementos of weddings past vary from traditional forms to humorous or even lewd figures, come in all shapes and sizes, are made of a host of materials, date from the late 19th century to the present, and generally range in price from about $10 at flea markets and gift shops to more than $300 each in antiques shops specializing in fine Victorian keepsakes.

There is only one reason to get up at 4 o'clock in the morning and turn on the television, and that's the dress. The well-kept secret of what Kate Middleton will wear when she weds Britain's Prince William early Friday morning (our time) will finally be revealed when she steps out of the limo with her father, Michael, and I want to see it in real time. No DVR for me. No "Dateline" recap. No Google photos. I want to be able to say I was there when the world got its first glimpse of Kate in her wedding dress.

Thirty-one years ago when I was a teen-age bride, I could barely boil water. So no, I did not bake my own wedding cake. And since my husband is still my only heartthrob, I've never had another opportunity.My most memorable wedding cake experience, therefore, occurred when I attended a reception at which the wedding cake was served only to the privileged few at the head table. But then, that wedding also featured a cash bar, so there's no accounting for bad taste.Of course, you want your cake to be the piece de resistance for everyone.

THERE IT was in Time two weeks ago, a blurb in the Trend Alert section that, depending on your point of view, signals either the apocalypse or a new, more playful mood among newlyweds. The blurb said that in cities like Baltimore and Atlanta, the traditional wedding cake is being replaced by tiers of - you may want to be sitting - Krispy Kreme doughnuts. For this, you can thank - or blame - Matt and Sherri Rybczynski. I wish you could meet Matt and Sherri, who live in White Marsh. He's 31, she's 26. He's boy-band handsome, she has guys on the street walking into light poles.

First of all, if you're reading the sports section but aren't planning on watching the Super Bowl, something's a little odd. But, hey, we've seen Supes go bust before, and it could be halftime and you're going to have all that dip and all those wings left, so you've got to watch something, right? Or maybe you've just had it with that cutesy Tom Brady and that dour Bill Belichick. Well, if for some reason you decide to opt out of the big game, we've done a little advance scouting to see what else is on the tube during the Super Bowl, subtitled "Pursuit of Perfection."

When the Holdens' power went out Thursday, their freezer was filled with salmon, tilapia, steak and chicken that would spoil if not eaten soon. It also held a treasure that was not meant for consumption, at least not yet. It was the top tier of their daughter Courtney's wedding cake, a souvenir from her June wedding. "I did take that to a friend who had power, early Saturday morning," says Kathy Holden, who lives with her husband, Joe, in Scaggsville. Then, "I called my sister and said, `Dinner's on me,' " says Holden, who works in the Howard County school system.

THERE'S nothing like a June wedding, except another June wedding, or any wedding really. With the exception of roller-coaster ring-exchanges or underwater vows, the average wedding ceremony has been around for centuries.According to Charles Panati's "Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things" (Harper & Row, 1987), the custom of announcing an engagement began during the Holy Roman Empire. fTC Charlemagne, Emperor of the Romans, required plans for marriage to be publicly announced at least seven days prior to the ceremony, to give anyone who had a reason for the couple not to marry a chance to come forward.

The famous 1-ton chandelier appearing in "The Phantom of the Opera" lumbers slowly toward the stage of the Hippodrome Theatre, looking for all the world like a flying wedding cake. Actually, it looks like a wedding cake that has been frosted on just one side, since the back is noticably lacking the white glass dollops and gilted doodads adorning the front. The chandelier lists first to the left and then to the right, before settling on the four metal feet protruding from the bottom.

The natural accompaniment to cake is, of course, ice cream — which may be why Duff Goldman is making it his next business venture. The "extreme baker" who became a national fixture with his "Ace of Cakes" television show on the Food Network has sealed a deal with Blue Bunny for his own ice cream line. The cake-inspired flavors are set to hit freezer cases this month and will be sold in the Baltimore area at stores including SuperFresh, ShopRite, Food Lion and Walmart. The ice cream line is the latest venture by Goldman.

Shanesa Debruin and her fiance promised each other in high school they'd marry if both were single at the age of 30. But when it came to the wedding cake, it was love at first sight. "We saw a picture online, and we just knew," said the 32-year-old Catonsville resident. When she marries Aaron Snowden in August, the graceful swags that drape her cake will be the wine color of the calla lilies in her bouquet. Gladys Thompson has been married for 50 years. But when she and husband Clyde Thompson Jr. renew their vows on Flag Day at Wayland Baptist Church in Baltimore, it is the cake from SugarBakers in Catonsville - with roses dusted in gold, gold pearllike trim and gold ribbon - that will steal the show.

My son's girlfriend was on the line from Las Vegas, where the twosome had gone for a vacation. "What's new?" my wife asked. "My last name," the young woman said. "We've eloped!" Well ... that's one way to have a wedding away from home, with or without Elvis in attendance, but others might prefer a more elaborate event in an exotic location, with family and friends attending. For them, a sampling: SuperClubs will give the loving couple a free wedding with a minimum three-night stay at one of its all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Curacao or Brazil.

As sweethearts Mark Dale and Sarah Raley of Southern Maryland waited yesterday to discover whether they had won the Today show's annual dream wedding contest, Dale grabbed the hand he asked for in marriage last year and nervously stroked it with his thumb. "I thought he was going to put a hole in my hand. Just before they announced it he whispered to me, `My heart is in my throat!'" Raley said. Her hand more or less intact, Raley and Dale learned on the live telecast they had won the contest over three other finalists.

NEW YORK - Commitment isn't easy for guys - we all know that - but the Bush administration is taking the traditional male ambivalence about marriage to giddy new heights. On the one hand, it wants to ban gays from marrying, through a constitutional amendment that the Senate will vote on this week. On the other hand, it's been avidly promoting marriage among poor women - the straight ones, anyway. Opponents of gay marriage claim that there is some consistency here, in that gay marriages must be stopped before they undermine the straight ones.
