4 Tips for Choosing Your Dream Wedding Cake

wedding cake topper ⦁ Determine the Number of Guests and Budget Before we start talking about colors and frosting, the first aspect that needs attention is logistics. If there are going to be over 500 guests in attendance AND the wedding cake is THE dessert being served, you will need to select a cake with an appropriate amount of layers or plan on having sheet cake ready to serve alongside you cute and dainty two-layer cake. ⦁ Choose the Flavors You Like This is one of the fun parts of choosing a wedding cake. Set up a tasting – with an idea of what you are looking for – and try out the flavors that are going to be best for you. This is your wedding, so don’t worry if Aunt Suzy doesn’t like chocolate! What do you want to be eating (or getting smashed in your face…) at your wedding? ⦁ Consider Your Wedding Style Sometimes we come up with the best tasting, largest cake, but the colors of the frosting or the filling style just does not match up with that relaxed beach vibe you want for your reception. Your wedding style is going to be something you will want to consider when you select that gorgeous triple chocolate wedding cake. ⦁ Match Your Cake Topper The heart wants what the heart wants, but it is a good idea to try and coordinate with your all-important cake topper. If your heart is set on a sweet and romantic cake topper, but is also in love with an ornate cake design that does not leave room for a wedding cake topper, it may be time to take a step back and rethink your wedding cake choice.

3 Easy Ways to Create a Frog Prince Wedding

A Frog Prince Wedding

A Frog Prince Wedding

What is the Story of The Frog Prince and Why is it Perfect for a Wedding? The story of The Frog Prince has be told and retold for many generations creating many versions that all end the same "Happily Ever After". No matter which version the general story includes a prince that is turned into a frog by some evil character, whether it be out of jealousy or punishment for his judgmental or harsh behavior, and he must find a princess that will love him and kiss him (and in some cases as specific as eating off a plate sleeping in her bed for a designated number of days). The story line is quite similar to Disney's Beauty and the Beast and is revamped in Disney's Princess and the Frog. This truly is a perfect love story to feature or theme your wedding after if you feel your relationship has transformed each other. Often, when we are in love with the right person, that person will not force us to change or be something we are not, but somehow they will make us want to be better. This seems to be what is behind The Frog Prince love story: Acceptance, growing together, and wanting the best for each other. What could be more perfect to create a wedding theme of true love? Suggestions for creating your Frog Prince wedding   1. Engagement photos, Announcements, and  Wedding Invitations Dream Box - Frog Prince A great place to start to establish your wedding theme is to incorporate it in your engagement photos, announcements, and invitations. You can go as far as using a real frog as a prop in your photos or keep it simple and have your groom where a green colored shirt. If you wear read lipstick and plant some red lips on his cheek it could make a cute pic that keeps with the theme! 2. Venue Avanti Fountain Place This theme would work great with an outdoor venue, preferably one with a water feature. Like with any theme, you do not have to be literal in every aspect, but having an outdoor venue with water present, will help create the atmosphere that is The Frog Prince.  3. Accessorize Your Wedding Princess Bride Kissing Frog Prince Figurine The Frog Prince wedding theme is going to be popular enough that you will be able to find on theme unique wedding accessories that will help you add that extra touch.

A Daisy Wedding: The Embodiment of Love & Loyalty

A Daisy Wedding: The Embodiment of Love & Loyalty

DIY Daisy Wedding Arrangements – Doing The Daisy Thing! The Daisy is a symbol for loyal love, purity, patience and simplicity. It is a flower that is said to be over 4,000 years old, popping up in ancient Egypt and Crete (Living Arts Originals). At your wedding, the daisy flower would be a wonderful addition in order to emphasize the strength and loyalty of your new marriage. It is also often associated with playfulness and including daisies in your wedding is a wonderful way to spread smiles and the feeling of simple and pure joy.  The daisy is a bright and happy flower, but it is also unobtrusive in that it won't always scream to take center stage.  

Bouquet Flower Cake Topper There are several different ways to incorporate the symbol of the daisy flower that goes beyond having daisy flowers in your bouquet creating that daisy small touch. It starts with a daisy accented wedding cake topper. The above cake topper features an elegant flowing veil, is hand painted, and is accented with two daisy bouquets. Its soft tones and cheerful daisy accents is a perfect way to incorporate a small touch to tie your daisy theme together. 

Daisy Bouquet Wedding Cake Server Set

This cake server set is another way to add that hint of daisy to your wedding and matches the daisy cake topper above. The cake server set is likely to be caught in a camera close up if you are keeping the tradition of cutting the cake, so you are going to want the knife you cut with to be decorative as well as functional. 

DIY Daisy Wedding Arrangements – Doing the Daisy Thing!

What you will need to decide is how far you want to take the daisy touch. Is it going to be in the background as a small connector between decor and design? Or is it going to be the main theme?  If it is going to be the theme, then you are going to want the daisy to be present in everything: the color scheme, table clothes, china and flatware, guestbook, and any other detail that ends up on that planning check list. However, not everything should have a daisy on it, but you will want the colors to coordinate with the daisy. Lucky for you, the classic daisy is white (a very popular and easy wedding color) and yellow (a happy and bright color) which allow you to create a fresh, romantic, and light wedding theme. Just like any wedding theme, it is important to remember to have fun and to not over do it!
