The phrase “let them eat cake” makes it all sound so easy.

When Bridget Moynahan and then-fiance Andrew Frankel went into planning their surprise wedding ceremony and reception at Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, New York on Oct. 17, they were on one accord — except when it came to dessert.

“They were both involved in all of the details,” planners Ann David and Nicky Reinhard of David Reinhard Events tell PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “They agreed on everything except the flavor of the cake.”

And they didn’t just disagree — they were diametrically opposed. “Bridget loves vanilla,” explains the planners. “Andrew loves chocolate.”

Luckily, they came to a compromise both could enjoy. Beneath the swirling white frosting of their chic, understated two-tier confection, were layers they could both get behind. Says the planners, “They made each tier a different flavor to make everyone happy.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Don’t know why but I am genuinely happy to see this nice woman find happiness. She’s pretty much one of the few celebs that I care about enough to hope that they find long lasting love in Hollyweird.

Nothing unusual about compromising on different layers of a cake.

@ Jeannie..that’s exactly what I thought. Different flavor layers in a wedding cake is pretty standard where I live, even when there’s no disagreement. Most couples want to offer something more interesting than a one flavor cake.

If that’s the only thing they disagreed on, they’re in a good place! Best wishes!
