In 1998 cakes began featuring the popular the “Precious Moments” bride and groom wedding toppers.
According to a Chicago Tribune report, in 1998 over 2 million cakes had these toppers.
John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette
John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette had their wildly famous wedding in 1996. While there was a lot of buzz, the wedding was also extremely private and was held on the tiny Cumberland Island chapel on September 23, 1996.
Bessette's simple Narcisco Rodriguez wedding dress made her the fashion icon of the decade.
The Spaghetti Straps
Carolyn Bessette's classy and minimalist design blew up and before we knew it everyone wanted a piece.
The year 1997 became the year of the spaghetti straps. Wedding dress or not, that was the look.
The Disposable Camera
In 1999 one of the staples of wedding accessories was the disposable camera. Every table would have one so that their guests could take pictures throughout the party.
It was a great way to capture moments from the whole reception.
Brad and Jen
This was Hollywood's biggest wedding at the time. The power couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston tied the knot in Malibu on July 29th, 2000.
Their quirky vows to each other included Brad swearing to "split the difference on the thermostat" and Jennifer promising to always make his "favorite banana milkshake." It's a shame they divorced.
