Traditional Wedding Cakes With a Twist

Many brides and grooms believe “traditional” is the equivalent of “boring”, but that needn’t be the case. As a matter of fact, traditional wedding elements are still highly appreciated for a reason: they are timeless, and they are constantly adapted to the new trends.

Take the classic white wedding cake, for example. Classy and timeless, this cake can be adjusted to fit any type of wedding, and any type of couple. Here are some ideas to inspire you as well:

  •        Round and square. For a modern white cake that will look just as elegant in 2018 as it will 40 years from now, ask your confectioner to create a multiple-tier white cake covered in classic fondant. The twist? Ask for two square tiers (at the bottom) and three round tiers (towards the top). The combination will add so much charm to your wedding cake!
  •        Playfully white. A small, two-tier wedding cake can be instantly turned into a playful, sweet, and modern piece if you ask your confectioner to add sugar balls on the brims of each of the tiers. They will look absolutely adorable, especially when paired with a cute cake topper!
  •        Rivets of white. Ask your wedding cake designer to create icing rivets on your tall, tiered, white wedding cake. If you add a couple of small bouquets of blooms on the cake (at the bottom and on the brim of the bottom tier, for example), it will look ultra-beautiful and elegant. The rivets, the blooms, the height of the cake – everything about it will scream “refined elegance”!

Your Bridesmaids Don’t Have to Spend a Fortune on Their Dresses

You want your bridesmaids to look excellent on the Big Day – but more than anything, you want to make sure they feel really great. Of course, their attires should look good and they should be coordinated with the entire wedding style – but that doesn’t mean they have to spend a fortune on these dresses.

How much should they spend, more exactly? Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind:

  • Our advice is to be considerate with your bridesmaids’ financial needs. They usually spend a lot on the wedding and on the pre-wedding events as well – and the last thing you want is to lose friends on account of money. The more considerate you are, the happier they will be.
  • To make sure you don’t offend anyone and still offer everyone options that suit them, come up with three versions, from three different price ranges. Offer them something on the higher range of prices (such as a dress that costs more than $350), something that falls in the medium range (such as a dress that costs somewhere between $200 and $350) and something that’s inexpensive (such as a dress that costs between $100 and $200).
  • If you want to make your dress choice feel even more considerate, focus on designs your bridesmaids won’t wear just at your wedding. Choose something they can wear at other events as well! This way, they will not spend a lot of money on something they only wear once.

A Few Drops of Rain Won’t Ruin Your Big Day

For many brides, rain is one of the absolute worst things that could happen on their Big Day. When you look at this situation through pink-colored glasses, though, you will find that things are not as bad as they seem.

What is there to know about coping with rain on your wedding day? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • You cannot control it – so why stress over it? Summer, fall, winter or spring – rain could pop up as an uninvited guest at any point during the year. Take it as it is – this may actually be the only thing you cannot plan months in advance.
  • Be ready. Planning an outdoor event? Have a plan B in store, just in case rain decides to pour down on your guests. A wedding tent is a really great solution for outdoor weddings on a damp day – so make sure to have one prepared.
  • Make guests feel cozy. Rain has started? Make guests forget about it! Provide them with excellent foods, hot chocolate to warm up and a huge smile every time you see someone joining in on the dance floor – they will completely forget about the rain.
  • Make yourself feel great. Put on a pair of colored, fun wellington boots and take out your chic umbrella – it’s time to shoot some fun rainy wedding pictures! The right photographer can turn these into works of art, so don’t be afraid to have some real fun with this shooting!

Allow These 2018 Wedding Food Trends into Your Big Day

Wedding food trends come and go – but the experience you offer at your wedding will remain in your guests’ memories forever.

So, which of the 2018 wedding food trends are worth considering for the most amazing day of your life? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •        Flower-power. If you thought flowers would only make an appearance on wedding cakes, you were wrong. In 2018, dried and fresh flowers make their way into actual wedding foods – and oh, how stunning they look! Plus, when chosen the right way, these little natural beauties can also add an amazing taste as well!
  •        Black foods are welcome. You may not consider an all-black wedding menu – but incorporating naturally-dark foods is a really amazing idea if you want to add a touch of refinement, elegance, and uniqueness to your wedding food. Black beans, blackberries, blueberries, black rice – the list of options is pretty generous, so don’t be afraid to get creative with it!
  •       Herbal cocktails make an entrance. Want to serve a truly special signature cocktail at your wedding? Consider incorporating herbs in your special cocktail – not only will they add a really fresh flavor, but they will look quite impressive as well!
  •         Drip cakes are here to stay. If you don’t want to serve the traditional white tiered cake, you should definitely consider multiple, smaller drip cakes. They look absolutely fantastic and they can taste equally amazing – so you really have all the reasons to love them.
