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:

Mint green with a touch of coral and lace for a vintage shower

I'm smitten over mint green and lace today. Such a rare pairing of colors and textures that it would be lovely for a bridal shower. I adore the blouse and necklace below! As for lace, match it up with a vintage-looking element such as newspaper. The look is striking and elegant as you can see.
