Turn your food into cake


I’ve been spotting some of my favorite foods posing as wedding cakes lately. Who doesn’t want a donut tower?! The jist is simple: take your favorite food, stack it on top of each other and boom, you’ve got a cake. For those averse to baking (ahem, me!), it’s the perfect solution.

  1. Croquembouche is a traditional French wedding cake make of pastry balls and caramel. This one is the easy version: donut holes!
  2. Rice Krispy cake. All about my childhood favorite.
  3. Macaron cake. Build them in different shades to add to the decor of your wedding.
  4. Donut cake tower.Try making them in different flavors so your guests can experiment.

The colorful groom


Ok, ok, the attention is most always the bride, but why shouldn’t the groom have some fun too?! My sister’s new husband just wore red at their wedding and I thought it was great fun. Men, loosen up a bit and add some color to your wedding attire. You can tone it down a bit by wearing a color that’s not so in your face like the cool mint above, or go all out like the all yellow ensemble. Remember: There’s a fine line between tasteful and too prom. Now, go have some fun!

Succulents in your modern wedding


You know how succulents are totally in right now? Well, in my humble opinion, they ain’t going anywhere! This trend is here to stay! I love seeing how people can apply them in various creative ways (psst: just came across this informative site, Succulents and Sunshine, which tells you everything you need to know about them.) I think they are so refreshing in a wedding. They’re crisp and minimal and simple, perfect for a couple who wants to do things a bit differently.

Use succulents in so may ways like the following:

  1. Succulents in a floral arrangement for centerpieces
  2. Succulents in a monogram letter
  3. Succulents in a bride’s bouquet
  4. Succulents as party favors
  5. Succulents as name tags
  6.  Succulents on a wedding cake (how cool is that, right?!)

Would you ever consider using succulents at your wedding? How so? Comment below!
