The difference is in the details, and when planning a wedding, there are LOTS of details to consider. One important check list item is the cake. Whether you choose a small and simple creation for rustic elegance, or a multi-tiered masterpiece fit for a royalty, adding fresh flowers and greenery is a thoughtful detail that makes a big statement.
Cake flowers are an impactful way to carry your wedding theme from the ceremony into the reception. They can be used as accents, or as the focal point on the cake. Cakes with simple, unadorned white or ivory icing provide a perfect canvas for floral designs.
Flowers Bring the “Wow”
Fresh flowers are the star of the show on these simple but elegant tiered cakes:
Often the cake flowers will mirror florals used elsewhere in the wedding. They should be consistent with the color scheme and overall theme. One Lilium bride and groom were married at a local botanical garden. The couple chose succulents and other natural textures for the wedding party flowers and ceremony decor that complimented the venue. The look carried over to the reception, where the cake featured white ranunculus, lavender, fresh herbs and berries.
Floral Toppers and Bases
Fresh flowers are frequently used as cake toppers, but using flowers to surround the cake’s base allows the cake to shine while creating a show-stopping table.
