Winter Wedding Ideas

We decided to create a look using various elements from our inspiration board and our main focus was texture, complemented by a rich palette of gold, dark red, green, and peach. With the barn space being a warm wooden color, we chose to lighten it up by using cream linens, candles, and place settings. We selected both gold and glass as the table feature and I absolutely adore the effortlessly perfect result.

Info On The Florals

Our florals are where our main focus, texture, came in. The variation in colors and grains was just seamless and they did a fabulous job of connecting all the other table details together. The use of fruit was an amazing way to add that extra bit of color to the table top. It ensured that we didn’t have color gaps or too much of one color in any given space. It also brought in more details to the table that would tie in the romantic and rustic-ness and give your guests something to talk about. Our main challenge with this color palette was to ensure that the table didn’t look like something out of a Christmas catalog and I am ecstatic with how well all of the elements and suppliers worked together. I am so thankful to have worked on this and my hope is that we are able to inspire both brides and vendors.

100 Wedding Cakes That WOW

100 Wedding Cakes That WOW

Find yourself stumped when it comes to deciding on a cake design? Here is a mental checklist you can take yourself through when deciding how to narrow down what design is best for you.

1. First, what does the rest of your wedding decor reflect? You may love a regal and intricately detailed cake but if your wedding decor is relaxed and rustic then find a cake that speaks the same feeling.

2. Second, what do you find yourself pinning the most? If your board is full of similar cakes your decision might be made and you don’t even know it!

3. Third, does taste carry a lot of weight for you? It is possible your favorite design is fondant where your tastebuds would rather have buttercream. Work with a cake designer on flavor and frosting first and then pick a design from there.

Now you can browse these 100 Wedding Cakes that WOW and see what ones have the same style as the rest of your wedding day plans, what ones you are inclined to pin (if not all of them), and what ones look the most scrumptious to you! Have fun!
