What type of wedding cake shall I have?

Perhaps you have been planning your dream wedding from a young age and have always envisaged your cake to be traditional. You’ve pictured yourself cutting into the first slice of a large, multi tiered, white fondant cascade of cake beauty surrounded by roses. Or perhaps that image doesn’t resonate with you at all and you’re imagining something completely different – unique even.

Footwear for Comfort

From the first step to the last dance, your wedding shoes make a huge impact on how comfortable you are throughout your special day. Some brides opt for skyscraper heels for a glamorous edge to their look, while others choose sandals for warm summer weddings; but in the quest for complete comfort and style, more and more brides-to-be are taking the alternative route and bringing a casual
element to their traditionally formal wedding attire.

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.

Alice in weddingland

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s timeless novels, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, we have come up with some quirky ideas that can transform a classical wedding into a wedding wonderland! 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.

Does your choice of wedding food reflect your personality?

Weddings are all about personality. They’re about two people, their vision, dreams, ideas and what makes them tick. The personality of the couple should impact upon every element of the day; from the venue choice and the dress, right through to the colour scheme and the food.

To cheese, or not to cheese, that is the question!

Are you bored of all the wedding cakes? Would you like to find a more creative and quirky cake? If the answers yes then cheese wedding cakes is your answer as they offer an alternative source to a traditional cake and are the latest trend. Also, you can make the cake look more attractive by adding fruit, flowers, feathers and ribbons to easily customise your cake to fit the theme of your wedding.

There is a wide range of cheeses to choose from, which include cheddar, Red Leicester, Brie to Cornish yarg which can be placed in tiers to look like a real wedding cake. This is a great option to choose as it can surprise your guests and create a relaxed feel to the day. Also, a cheese wedding cake can be decorated to become a visual statement and make the atmosphere feel informal. Just remember, in the summer season don’t choose particular strong cheeses and always put the hardest cheeses on the bottom and softer cheeses like brie on top as they will sink or melt.

The Oxford Cheese Wedding Cake Company is a great company to choose as you can create your own personalised wedding cake with their large selection of cheeses made from organic and local ingredients.  After all, who wants a normal wedding cake anyway?
