Radiant Orchid: floral glam comes alive!

Pink and lilac combine to make Pantone's 2014 color of the year! I am thinking of stunning cymbidium orchids in fuchsia for the bridal bouquet amidst a sunny garden veranda. The place could be anywhere from a lush botanical park to a sandy beach! While the bridesmaid dresses are all in pretty shades of mauve, the groomsmen are wearing beige seersucker suits for that preppy look.

The wedding cake? Imagine an ombre creation rendered in various shades of pink and lilac! Lastly, remember that you can apply this color in bold,vibrant shades to subtle accent colors that suit your personality. Consider gold or silver for adding a glamorous spark!

Mint Weddings Inspiration

I know I've done a mint green and coral post, but mint alone as a wedding color can be just as gorgeous. In fact, you can stick with monochromatic palette for an ultra chic look. Did I say that it was also a very trendy color for 2013! Take these four points of inspiration as your launching pad:

Vintage wedding cakes with lovely details

Vintage wedding cakes run from ornate and sophisticated to elegant and simple. Artists apply elements ranging from lace to pearls to cameos. You can even see some that have fancy sugar flowers with draping ribbons and swirls! Choosing a cake stand to present the cake should also be noted as seen in the cakes below. The one with hanging chandelier glass is a must-see. Finally, notice how the colors are muted and pale, but so attractive. Such lovely details make these my favorite types of cakes:
