Whether you’re fol­low­ing a strict theme or sim­ply want to get a lit­tle bit arty, these el­e­ments are a great way of ex­press­ing your­selves...

No. 1 Magazine - - THE ULTIMATE PLANNING GUIDE -

There are nu­mer­ous ways cou­ples can in­tro­duce their cre­ative side into their wed­ding day, but no two el­e­ments ooze cre­ativ­ity more than your choice of wed­ding sta­tionery and your cake. Wed­ding plan­ning can be a lit­tle stress­ful, but cake shop­ping is the best bit! Whether you are at­tend­ing a wed­ding show or vis­it­ing a bak­ery di­rectly, in­dulging in the ‘taste tests’ is a highlight on your long list of to dos. Today, cou­ples are ex­per­i­ment­ing with more flavours and fill­ings than ever be­fore, as the tra­di­tional fruit­cake with marzi­pan and royal ic­ing is no longer a first choice for some mod­ern brides. When it comes to cakes – the show-piece of any re­cep­tion venue – big­ger is bet­ter, but you don’t need to go over board, or over bud­get. Some soon-to-be-mar­ried cou­ples opt for ar­ti­fi­cial tiers to give the look of a big cake, on a small bud­get, while oth­ers shun the sponge or the fruit tiers al­to­gether, and go for the al­ter­na­tive cup­cake stack or cake pops and, for savoury fans, slabs of cheese piled high! Of course, don’t go too far off­piste, as the cake should, like most el­e­ments, fit in to the over­all theme of your wed­ding day.
