Halloween Wedding Cake Ideas - BOO!

Now that I've covered the color palettes of my favorite birthstones, I've decided to switch gears and focus on my next topic of interest. Halloween, of course! In this series, I'll be going over what's wacky, cool, and stylish when putting on a wedding during one of the funnest times of the year. And today, I'm kicking it off with my favorite wedding cakes. These four cakes really caught my eye and I'm sure you will be inspired just as much as me. {from left to right - click to enlarge}

Green Wedding Color Palette

Seeing green ain't all that bad especially if it's the color of emerald. Truly one of my favorite birthstones. This brilliant stone brings to mind, a cool and chic palette that you can match up with easily in a monotone way or with hues such as navy blue or chocolate brown! In this design board, you will find that an emerald green can't be just as elegant as long as you apply it properly:

  1. The Wedding Cake from Venus Cakes
  2. The Bridesmaid Dress from jlm couture
  3. For the Groom, a lovely striped tie to wear from the Tiebar
  4. Crisp green and white wedding invitations
  5. Mint chocolate squares for guests! Put them in a white sachet bag and they're ready to give.
  6. Don't forget the engagement ring, of course!

A Red Ruby Wedding Color Palette

I'm totally seeing red right now! A ruby wedding color palette is one that speaks classic elegance no matter what season of the year. Match red with black and you've got a totally modern yet sophisticated look. When paired with brown, you can instantly turn the palette into a modern and chic one. For a more daring combination, a gold and red pairing simply says opulent and glamorous! My personal favorite is a black and red palette:

Topaz Wedding Color Palette

Whether you call it light blue or sky blue, topaz still remains one of my favorite birthstones. While you would think that the December birthstone would be something like blue or red, this pretty blue stone steals my heart away especially if you think about the "something blue something borrowed" aspect of as wedding. And who doesn't have something that is blue!? Imagine a topaz palette that is matched with gold or silver. You can even consider pairing it with a lovely hue of pink or fuchsia for a truly girly palette! Check out my favorites below:

A Blue Sapphire Wedding Palette

I'm thinking of sapphire this September! So classy a color and teeming with refinement. It speaks conservative, but also elegant at the same time. You can match it up with a variety of hues from ivory to fuchsia. Sapphire was also the color of Princess Diana's engagement ring so this brings loads of style and class with it. The inspiration board below shows just how you can match a sapphire blue palette:
