Couture Cakes

The wedding cake is one of the main focal points of the reception and truly reflects the feel of your wedding. If you are looking for a modern elegant feel then these cakes are just the thing for you. I love the bold patterns that are currently in style. You can do bold patterns in all white to add dimension but still keep the cake timeless and traditional. The other option is to go all out with a variety of colors that reflect your wedding palette. Either way, these cakes are beautiful and are sure to aww your guests.

Show-Stopping Idea

time for the show

It is time for the show! Whether you are a concert lover, sports fanatic, or just have a passion for the whimsy, these invites are just for you. These unique invites look just like real tickets, complete with the perforated ends with a unique number on the back.
Therefore, you can use the ticket as your RSVP card by having the guest tear the right side of the ticket and mailing it back to you! These make for fun invites to your bachelor or bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, or as save the dates. These are definitely a witty showstopper. I love it! Check them out!

Fall Colors

Having a fall wedding doesn’t have to incorporate a rustic theme complete with pumpkins and haystacks. A simple use of the fall color pallet opens the doors to an elegant and beautiful wedding. The colors of fall are bold and vibrant, which is the perfect match for a luxurious and romantic wedding feel. I know I continually talk about paying attention to the details of your wedding but it is super important! I think this is especially true for this inspiration board. The fall hues are displayed in every aspect of the wedding right down to the soup and the dessert. Everything goes together and everything flows. I think my absolute favorite thing is the chocolate wedding menus! They serve double duty as a menu and the favor. They also cut down on the paper used in the wedding and make a yummy treat. No one is going to throw this menu away!

Autumn

Bold colors and fall leaves are the inspiration for this beautiful wedding inspiration board. Imagine… beautiful luminaries lining the edge of the dock, while the the glow reflects beautifully on your ceremony. You can toss beautiful autumn leaves in lieu of the traditional bird seed. Escort cards attached to barrels of hay add a rustic touch with a great seasonal feel.

Boo-Tatoes and Pumpkins!

 

bootatoes

If you are having a Halloween themed wedding then these are the perfect side dishes for you! These are Boo-Tatoes and are simply mashed potatoes molded in the shape of ghosts. You can achieve this same look by piping the mashed potatoes through a pastry bag. You make the ghost’s eyes with black sesame seeds. The cute little pumpkins are sweet potatoes–also piped through a pastry bag– garnished with pecan halves to make the steams and bits of cilantro become leaves. These make for a BOO-tiful presentation!
