Let Them Eat Cake At Your Wedding.

Don’t forget to decorate the cake table at your wedding reception. Use rose petals, votive candles to make the cake table stand out.  You will want you cake elevated to show it off and set it apart from the other tables at the reception. Add a special element like glass or a custom cake stand to give it that elegant look. It will actually make your cake look larger and stand out in a ballroom or wedding venue. Make your wedding cake stand out with a bright accent color. Use the opposite linen color from your wedding color scheme to make it stand out. You can also use a sheer overlay that is a shade lighter or darker than the linens you will use for the guests. Have the cake table compliment your sweetheart table or head table if sitting with your bridal party. Find a cake topper that sets the cake off or use fresh flowers as in this picture. There are so many ways to make your cake table stand out. My favorite is to use a combination by elevating the cake, putting it on a great custom cake stand , using votives – lots, and swagging the sheer fabric with a small bouquet at each swag. No matter what, think about the cake table as an opportunity to let your sense of style shine at your wedding. Come up with something unusual that stands out and makes your cake table look classic and elegant.

Tips for Planning Your Wedding Reception

There are a million different things to consider when you are planning a wedding ceremony and a reception, some big and some small.  One of the larger groups of decisions you must make is in reference to your reception, there are many things to consider.  The following is a few things that you should consider when planning your wedding reception:

  1. If you are making assigned seating for everyone at your reception you need to take in to account the general energy between the people at the table.  Are they all old or young?  Are they relatives, friends or a mix?  Do these people knowingly not like each other?  All of these things could affect the atmosphere.
  2. One of the biggest ways to enhance or ruin the atmosphere of the wedding is the question of alcohol.  Yes, it can loosen people up and cause for a great party vibe, but it could also cause a scene with unruly people.  The balance is what type of party you want to have.
  3. What type of food you serve will have a direct impact on the type of reception you will have.  If you serve a meal, people will likely sit and talk most of the reception.  If you have finger foods or cheese and crackers people will be much more inclined to get up and walk around to mingle.
