Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

Ideas for Your Wedding Cake

Posted by wed_admin in:
Wedding Ideas

Chocolate wedding cakes, wedding cakes with flowers, lace wedding cakes,  coloured wedding cakes.Deciding on the look of your wedding cake might be one of the more difficult decisions you make when planning the catering for your big day.

Don’t want a traditional fruit cake filling?  Then opt for a chocolate cake or a light sponge.  You could even go for a tower of cheeses if you prefer savoury to sweet.

Prince William also had a ‘groom’s cake’ at his wedding reception, a chocolate biscuit confection that complemented the couple’s other traditional white tiered wedding cake created by Fiona Cairns.

That’s a great idea actually.

So what style of cake do you think you’re going to choose?  It rather depends on your style of wedding day.

Are you a traditional, formal kind of bride?  Then maybe a romantic theme, featured on this beautiful lace wedding cake from Rosalind Miller Cakes is for you.

On the other hand, you might be after a quirky kind of wedding reception theme.  This novelty cake creation by Choccywoccydoodah is certainly original.

Flowers are an integral part to any wedding day, whatever kind of mood you’re looking to create.  You can decorate your cake with real flowers or go for stunning paste blooms, as on this floral wedding cake design from Peggy Porschen Cakes.

Or you could use the seasons to inspire your wedding cake decoration, like this apple-decorated cake by Planet Cake

chocolate tiered wedding cake with fresh raspberries

Chocoholic brides can indulge their taste buds with a chocolate wedding cake and I love this idea by Maisie Fantaisie.   The fresh raspberries are a perfect decoration and add a fruity tang to the sweetness.

For more ideas and inspiration, read my other posts about wedding cakes – where you can learn to bake wedding cupcakes and  decorating wedding cakes with fresh flowers.
