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!

Thoughtful And Thrifty Woodland Wedding

Washigton Wedding

As a stylist and self professed perfectionist, Jenn wanted to throw a fabulous wedding that wouldn’t eat up too much of her and her fiancé’s savings. With a little determination and some thrifting, she did just that!

Their thoughtful and thrifty woodland wedding was set in the heart of Fort Townsend State Park and was captured in all its classic beauty by Meredith McKee Photography. To see more stop in and take a look around the full gallery here.

From The Bride On Thrifting For Her Wedding

Every week I visited local thrift stores to look (I liked to call it “treasure hunt”) for items that made my idea come to life. Crystal candlestick holders, wooden boxes, antique china plates, ribbon, interesting jars and glasses, etc. Even my wonderful mother sent me some candlesticks she came across while antiquing in Missouri!

I knew I wanted some sort of “place mat” or chargers for our place settings. While all the chargers I came across were not in our budget, I found wonderful gold dotted paper placemats at Carol & Comany. They turned out beautifully!

Advice from the Bride

The best, most popular advice I would suggest is to breathe and to take everything in. It goes by so fast! One thing I did however, was to get up early and sit outside by myself to reflect/pray on the day and for our future. I felt very calm and was then ready to start the day!
