Vines with grapes are nice too.

Saw a hat groom's cake recently on CC and save the link for future reference. Hope it's helpful.http://judyscakes.blogspot.com/2010/05/cowboy-hat.html
I use Evernote to keep track of family cake projects (not set up as a business yet) and Google calendar to schedule tasks and reminders (since you can have it email you ahead of time). Evernote is great for storing ideas, pictures, lists of tools, pans, favorite ingredients, business best practice information, recipes, with everything else all organized into notes and notebooks. It stores data in the cloud but syncs to my laptop and phone so I can access everything...
Which cake mix brand did you use? I find that Betty Crocker rises better than Duncan Hines. I prefer the taste of the DH but ultimately end up using BC because of the way it performs. Also I saw mention recently in a forum post that some manufacturers have cut back on the size of the mixes so that may be a factor as well.
Definitely Magic Line!
Congratulations! Your cupcake is adorable!!
If you label the cupcakes and the venue messes them up royally when the display is set up you will get the credit for that! I would be very careful. Better to give the bride some great cupcakes (and make sure she knows they're from you) than to have the restaurant possibly give you a bad rep by messing things up.
I wonder if you couldn't use those clear plastic cups that you would use under a small potted plant (to keep your table dry) and glue it to the ribbon as a base to hold the cupcake. I know it wont look as pretty (tho I'm thinking you might be able to glue beads to the edge to decorate them). It might make it a bit more sturdy and wind-proof in case the weather doesn't cooperate.
