Deciding on a wedding cake was hard, especially as we had already chosen to go with a dessert station filled with our favourite cakes, think gooey chocolate cake, black forest gateau and a raspberry and white chocolate number that was to-die for, but I just felt without a cake that it wouldn’t feel like a wedding but just a regular party, and basically I like any excuse to eat cake!!!
I know I have only been engaged just over a week, but it is amazing how quickly you actually get immersed into searching the internet for wedding ideas, and how much more interested you are to see actual wedding pictures. One real wedding that has caught my eye is ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco who went for full on fairy princess for her wedding to tennis player Ryan Sweeting on New Year’s Eve.
Like Kaley, I also don’t really want a white gown, I am thinking more like dusky pink, off-white or even dove grey, but I have to be honest I had been considering a Barbie pink one as it makes such a statement. Everything about Kaley’s custom Vera Wang gown is divine, from the petal pink hue to the strapless tulle ball gown silhouette and the gorgeous sweetheart neckline. Also if you look closely you can see hand appliqué Chantilly lace accents.
Even if you think the pink shade is too much you have to agree that she looks absolutely radiant and I can’t wait to see the official photographs as she apparently she accessorised her romantic gown with a nude tulle veil with pink hand appliqué Chantilly lace.
Kaley isn’t the only celebrity who has recently worn a pink wedding dress – Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon all went for the fashion-forward choice.
Would you wear a pink dress for your wedding?
As well as loving Kaley’s pink gown – I also noticed on her Twitter that she had an upside down six-tiered chandelier wedding cake made by The Butter End Cakery. This is such a cool idea, not only is it so original but wow what a statement piece for the reception. The cake didn’t just look amazing it sounds pretty amazing as the two-flavour cake was almond with toasted almond cream cheese buttercream frosting and chocolate almond cherry with cherry cream cheese buttercream frosting – sounds yummy!!!
I was actually contemplating not having a wedding cake and having more of a full-on dessert table with all my favourites but this beauty might have changed my mind to do more of a statement.
What do you think of this amazing cake?
