Pie anyone?

If you’re looking for an alternative choice for a wedding cake then a wedding pie is perfect for you! Savoury pies are becoming increasingly popular and is a great choice if you’re planning to marry in the Autumn/Winter season as it creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. This idea would defiantly link in with a country themed wedding or if you’re getting married in a barn as it is an informal choice for a wedding cake. There are hundreds of flavours to choose from but my personal favourites include cherry, coconut cream, blackberry and apple pie! You will love these pies as they can come in different sizes, flavours and can be arranged to be put in tiers so they look like an actually wedding cake. They can also be decorated with flowers and other decorations to link in with your wedding theme.

To incorporate the Alice in Wonderland theme it would be a great idea to host the ceremony and reception outside so choose a venue that has lots of garden space, marquee and trees that can be decorated. For the reception host a Mad Hatters tea party by serving, aromatic teas, classy cocktails, sandwiches and cute cupcakes which have tags that say eat me on them, this will definatly go down a treat with your guests.

Over the rainbow

Most couples love to decorate their weddings with two contrasting colours and brides could take forever choosing a colour scheme but why just stick to one? Its all about the colours of the rainbow so if you love colour go big and bold! Adding rainbow themed objects is a great way to add bursts of colour into your day without going over the top and can look very stylish. For the bridesmaids dresses choose plain white but then accessorize with different coloured shoes and flowers, this looks very elegant but with a quirky twist and will look effective in the photographs.

Everyone wants the wedding cake to stand out so choose a rainbow creation to spread the happiness and consider this fantastic rainbow one for a cake cutting you’ll never forget! A colourful sweetie table is great idea and not just for the children! You can display the different variety of sweets in vintage jars so your guests can choose their own pick and mix to take home with them as a little treat. This is a superb idea as it is a quirky twist from the normal entertainment and creates a relaxed impression. You can choose lots of different sweets from jelly beans, smarties, sherbet saucers to pear drops which will defiantly please the guests.Read More
