Twenty Spectacular Wedding Cakes

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Marie Antoinette may have gotten in hot water for saying “Let them eat cake!” but, as far as we’re concerned, any invitation to eat cake is a good one. Especially when the confection in question is a wedding cake. Elaborate and beautiful, they’re a culinary celebration of the day, reflecting all the style, joy and wonder in the room.

In our book, all wedding cakes are welcome, and we’ve come across a few spectacular creations that remind us so much of our own brides’ incredible style that we had to share:

Beachy Wedding {Inspiration}

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Though your wedding might be on the beach, your wedding day style can be laid back or glamorous. After all, the sea is filled with glittering, gorgeous things. To show you what we mean, we’ve created three seaside wedding inspiration themes accented by real beach-side Bridal Styles brides!

For brides-to-be craving an elegant bridal look, think breezy-chic. Consider an asymmetrical mermaid gown paired with a frilly white orchid bouquet. Add just the right amount of shimmer with a stunning crystal-encrusted anemone-evoking hair comb worn at the back or framing the face and delicate earrings.

If fresh and flirty is more your style, whimsy is your muse! Show off your tan with a gorgeous short wedding dress, and forgo shoes for delicate foot jewelry (available at Bridal Styles Boutique). Finish things off with one of our dazzling hair-flowers and you’ve got a look a modern mermaid would love!

Love the idea of an affair with a casual feel but indisputably sophisticated style? Walk down the aisle in a flowing, textured gown. Amp up the glam with a shimmering hair vine entwined in your locks or perhaps across your forehead like a queen of the sea. Thinking you’d like a look even more dramatic while saying ‘I do’? Frame your face with a hair comb of two bejeweled flowers or use the same piece at the back of your wind-tousled up-do!

Pink and Gold Glam {Inspiration}

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Delicate pink and luxe gold are a match made in bridal style heaven!

Just like Marie Antoinette, think feminine, opulent, and bold. Glamorous touches like a clear and gold crystal bridal hair comb and a vintage-inspired Swarovski-encrusted cuff bracelet are a divine combination, especially when paired with a wedding gown of the palest pink (embroidered in gold, of course).

When planning your wedding reception, gild your soft pink hue with details. We’re thinking lush flowers, decadent macarons and place-settings that would make any elegant queen’s heart sing.

Black and White {Inspiration}

Monday, August 20th, 2012

To create a wedding day look that’s striking and timelessly chic, take some advice from the guru of understated elegance, Coco Chanel:

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

A black and white wedding can be romantic, vintage, modern or anywhere in between. With that in mind, we’ll start with our favorite things – bridal bling. Many of our headpieces can be tailor-made with clear and black diamond Swarovski crystals, so really the tricky part is only figuring out which suits you best!

When it comes to The Dress, as a black and white bride-to-be, you’ve got options galore. Keep it simple with a refined gown accented with a black sash or strike a pose in a sophisticated frock adorned with black lace. While dreaming up your wedding reception, play with the dramatic nature of your palate! Mix and match eye-catching details with classic elements: a glittering black beading on a sexy bridal shoe, black invitations with white calligraphy, white centerpieces on an elegant black table cloth, a tuxedo wedding cake.

But whatever you do, stay true to you! As Ms. Chanel also famously said:

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
