One great way to organize an outstanding wedding for your friends and family is to use a central motif. The sources of inspiration you can study are numberless and all unique. Modern designers offer lots of creative ideas and wedding projects for those who want something original and remarkable. Themes are the number one aspect a couple has to consider when starting planning the big wedding event. The theme of your wedding can be a color, a style of inspiration, a texture, a design or a symbol.
Anything meaningful will fit. Just make sure that the motif is readable or understandable by your guests. No one wants to use something that no one can really figure it out. It’s best to choose something simple and expressive. A love symbol will make a good choice. The symbolism of weddings is rich in meanings and significations and it would be practically impossible not to find something that can really match or fit for your wedding. We have our own proposals in this regard to make to those who want to use a certain element of design for the wedding cake.
It’s crucial to find a symbolic element that can be incorporated throughout the wedding. Everything has to look and feel well-connected and coherent otherwise your wedding will be a mess or a chaos. Use heart patterns, knot ties and ribbons, monograms or lovebird symbols to decorate the cake in a romantic way. These symbols are always fitted for weddings, no matter the season, the date or the location.
The first wedding cake we’re showing on this page features a dove pattern. These birds are interpreted as the symbol of love, devotion, commitment, purity, honesty and sincerity. Doves are the greatest example of wild creatures that actually mate for a lifetime. What deeper symbol or expression of love is there to choose for a wedding? The dove symbol can be analyzed in many ways. For instance, Hindu traditions regard doves as the expression of infinite capacity for spiritual love.
This cake is beautifully decorated with gum-paste birds in white elegant shades. The cream ribbons add even more gracefulness and romanticism to the cake. This cake looks and feels like a fairytale! Use white roses in your cake to express pure love, perfection and sublimity. Greeks used white roses to express true love, purity and unity. The myriad of petals that cover this cake are edible – made of sugar. This cake looks like a Cupid’s temple of love. The bell is another love symbol that can fit a meaningful wedding cake. The bells on the last cake are made of golden fondant an brushed with edible gold luster dust.
The wedding cake is all about colors, textures and decorations. Or at least this is what experts in field tell us. The more detailed a wedding cake is the more chances it can make a successful apparition at the wedding. We tend to agree with them and this is why we brought a few unique designs that are relevant for this discussion. It’s important to choose a design that can captivate the attention of your guests but it’s crucial to choose a flavor that can satisfy their taste too. What would be the point in brining a showy cake with a spectacular appearance but without a complimenting taste?
We advise you therefore to pick a cake that is outstanding and satisfying in both aspect and taste. Choose a filling that fits the color of the wedding decor. The flavor has to be rich, smooth and fresh, so that it can suit different types of preferences and tastes. But let us return to the decorative part. We know that a good-looking wedding cake requires a more careful planning. Pick a theme or color scheme to use for the tiers, decorative items and filling.
Next, you have to look for the details that can fit the theme or the wedding cake style. The way you incorporate the decorative items is something to think and rethink until you get the right picture of the ideal wedding cake. Nowadays anything fresh, romantic, crafty and colorful can work. Floral or non-floral, the cake decoration should be elegant, eye-catchy and thematic.
