Weddings are special and important and hence a lot of effort is put into them. From the table dressing to the bride’s accessories, every detail is taken care of well in time. An important part of any wedding is the wedding cake. After months of planning and tasting you’ve finally chosen the perfect wedding cake for your big day. However, that’s only half the battle. Getting a beautiful cake is definitely the main step but none of it will matter if it is not properly displayed at your wedding venue. A good display can easily make or mar any wedding cake.
Vintage wooden display
A great way to highlight your wedding cake is to display it on an antique dresser for a vintage wedding. You can also display your wedding cake on stacked rustic apple crates for a relaxed country style. This would not only reduce the cost of displaying but also give your wedding cake display a creative boost.
Theme of the cake as an inspiration
A great point to remember while displaying your wedding cakes and cup-cakes is to use the theme of your wedding cake as an inspiration. This is quintessential because otherwise the whole scene would end up looking like a clutter. For example, if you’ve designed a love birds cake for your wedding ceremony, then decorate its surroundings with leafs or a nest. This would instantly highlight your wedding cake.
A variety of hues from the key colour of your wedding
Get as creative and playful with your wedding cake display as you can. Use a number of shades of the colour most highlighted in your wedding. Do not choose shades of different colours as you do not want your wedding to look like a kindergarten party.
Space above the cake
Usually all the decoration and display around the cake is only taken care of and we forget to even realize the space above the cake. You can hang beautiful glowing lights or small lanterns upside down from the wall above the cake. This would immediately take the attention of the guests towards the cake.
Place a mirror behind the cake
A smart way to make your cake look larger and broader is by placing a mirror right behind the cake. This would also give your guests a great 360 degree view of the marvellous cake.
Flowers as decorations
Place beautiful flower vases around your cake stands to enliven the whole dessert table. Opt for flowers that go with your wedding theme. This is a common style of displaying the cake but provides a lot of choice for creativity within itself.
Another great option to decorate your wedding cake surroundings in a budget-friendly way is to hang your family photographs on the wall right behind the cake. This is an easy idea which not many couples think of. It lends a sense of nostalgia to the whole surrounding.
Cake cutting song ideas
While you’re busy decorating your cake and cake surroundings, do not forget to take care of the cake cutting song ideas. Play wedding cake cutting songs that match with the wedding style and the wedding music.
