Trendy Thursday { Let Them Eat Cake }

Wedding cakes are one of my favorite parts of weddings. I love seeing all the designs + trying so many yummy flavors! Gone are the days of heavy buttercream and too many flowers. Delicate cakes are totally in, so today I’m featuring a few of my favorite new cake trends!

  • Fresh flowers are out, sugar flowers are in – I love the delicacy of sugar flowers. I love that you can design them in creative ways {adding different colors, textures, etc}. I also love that you can save them after the wedding day!

  • Go for delicate textile details – wedding gowns have always been a great source for wedding cake inspiration. Pretty frills, lace, and overlays are super elegant, but not all details need to be overly feminine. Lately, I’ve been seeing lots of edgy designs that are still very fitting for a wedding cake.

  • Wacky cake are OUT – you don’t have to feature a topsy-turvy cake to catch your guest’s attention. Cake designers are going all out, but in a more restrained way. They’re focusing more on perfectly designed details rather than structural design.

  • Loose floral arrangments – forgo rigid floral design and feature something a bit more fluid. Something that flows and still looks elegant and put together. Sugar flowers that cascade look more realistic and fanciful.

  • Use a sleek pedestal cake stand in place of a chunky filigree style cake drum. They look much more graceful and are great for adding some height!

Trendy Thursday { Glorious Gold }

Gold is becoming one of my favorite accent colors this year! It looks great with just about any color palette and adds a bit of elegance to the decor =) A simple way to incorporate gold into your wedding is with flatware. Plus it comes in tons of styles {modern, traditional, etc.}!

Trendy Thursday { White Sangria Pops }

Here’s a tasty treat to keep guests cool in warm summer months – White Sangria Popsicles! They’re cold, refreshing, and perfect as a treat for adult guests!

  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 cups chopped fruit
  • Combine wine, simple syrup, and orange liqueur in a large pitcher.
  • Juice 1 lemon into the pitcher.
  • Slice the other lemon thinly and then halve the slices. Add to the pitcher with the remaining fruit.
  • Pour into 3-ounce paper cups and freeze for ~2 hours until it starts to ice over.
  • Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for another 2-3 hours until solid.
  • To serve, carefully peel the paper cut away from the sangria pop starting with the seam.
  • Eat immediately.

Real Wedding Wednesday { Old World Vow Renewal }

This styled shoot from Stacey Able Photography beautifully captures Gatsby inspired decor {like those gorgeous champagne saucers}.

From the photographer: “Our theme, which was a mixture of Old World Travel and Glamorous romance, meshed well with the formal and antique atmosphere of the mansion. Some of our DIY projects included assembling paper globes out of old maps and card stock, strung among the terrace wall behind the dinning table. In love with succulents, we couldn’t get enough! We accented the cake, guests seats and other areas with the hearty plants. We used maps from our own travels around the world, to add accents and little details to all of our projects. We had a amazing time creating this wonderful, inspired shoot. Our models, being husband and wife, made the romantic chemistry unreal!”

Trendy Thursday { Gilded Age Glitz }

Gatsby glam is a major trend in weddings this year, and we love the idea of incorporating champagne saucers into the cocktail hour!
