You’ve spent so much time putting effort in to making your wedding vision come to life through your wedding details, and planning what your wedding cake is going to look like should be no exception. Wedding cakes aren’t like birthday cakes; you probably only get one chance to find your perfect cake! Wedding cakes are a fun way to make your big day unique and special by letting your imagination and creativity run wild.

You don’t necessarily need to stick exactly to your theme when it comes to selecting your cake, but certainly use it as an inspiration. Think about how your cake can be tied into the décor to ensure a fluid and fresh look to your special day. If you’re having a rustic-themed wedding, consider a beautiful traditional cake with a few fondant branches and bird’s nest on top instead of a traditional bride and a groom cake topper. If you’re having a laidback beach wedding, you could opt for an ocean-inspired cake with fondant seashells and waves, or one that is in the shape of a sand castle.

Perhaps you didn’t really select a particular theme for your big day but you have a very specific color scheme. Integrating these colors into your cake is a great way to show off you and your fiancés sense of style while also integrating your colors. If you’re a fan of art deco, use your colors and be inspired by fun geometric patterns. Are you sports fans? Perfect! Feature your all-time favorite sports teams on your cake! This is a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding, because you can design the cake to fit your interests. People will leave your wedding saying, “Oh, that wedding cake was so them.”

Having an original wedding cake that ties in your theme or color scheme is a great way to tie your big day together, but at the end of the day you should just try and have fun with it. The more creative you are in making sure your cake reflects you and your fiancé in the perfect way, the more impressed your guests will be for putting in that little bit of extra time and effort.
