A new trend managed to twist the minds and hearts of our modern newlyweds. This trend is fresh, contemporary and very playful. We’re talking about the chevron pattern, yes! We ourselves are pretty impressed with this way of decorating a wedding and we must confess that we find it very tricky and eye-catchy. It can suit different types of weddings due to its versatility. We didn’t expect to see it in elegant indoors weddings, but we did remarked it in both casual and formal celebrations.
One can never decipher the wedding trends, especially when they are in a continuous process of changing. Chevron is ideal for beach weddings because of its refreshing feel. If you use it in white and blue you will see just how delightful and how well it can suit your seaside wedding! Use it in white and green and have an eco-friendly party! Use it for a white and red theme and update its traditional aspect. The zig-zag stripes can make any popular colors look inedited and unique.
This pattern is nowadays used even in more colors. No one should feel limited to utilize it only in a bicolor scheme. White is essential because it gives its specific look. But you can add many other hues and make your wedding theme look more sophisticated and diversified. If you want to go more modern with your wedding yet propose a little bit of the retro vibe, use chevron as your wedding theme. Don’t be afraid to play with colors, but make sure that your mix is soft to the eyes and adequate for your wedding formality and venue.
Very popular and beloved by our modern couples, Chevron is still full of unique resources. As we said above, the secret is in the colors you’re using. One can never consume all options because there are numberless ways of combing and mixing different colors. This pattern can be inserted in anything, starting with the invitations and stationery and ending with the cake and the guest favors. We have a few pretty ideas of chevron wedding cakes and we are very excited to share them with you.
These cakes are made by various designers who know exactly what the modern couple wants for their wedding party: originality, drama, sophistication, elegance and good taste. These confections have even more qualities. They feature a unique design and a delicious flavor! Chevron is a fabulous trend that allows the contemporary bride and groom to play with different hues and create unique mixes. It looks striking when incorporated in details as it adds a more modern twist to a traditionally planned party. We like the contrast between the clean white lines and the bold pop of color!
Being a modern couple is a great privilege. And we say this because there are other wedding trends nowadays, based on a lot more flexibility, artistry and originality. The 2012 bride and groom are invited to discover new ways of designing a wedding, based on their own vision and preferences. Everything in a wedding is nowadays based on unique accents, aesthetical decorations and simple motifs.
When it comes to wedding cakes, things are even truer. We are big fans of the modern cake designs promoted by our designers. These confections vary by style, size, shape, design, color and flavor. The wedding cake is not just a sweet dessert for the guests, but a real work of art! And we’re talking here about the way the wedding cake is interpreted and designed nowadays by our cake makers. The taste and the appearance of the cake are important in an equal measure and this is why you have to plan both the flavor and the design of the cake with more precaution.
You cake can feature a unique shape or pattern, or it can be based on a beautiful motif or detail. Simple wedding cakes composed of asymmetrical tiers and decorated with cute details are the trendiest. Both smooth and textured cakes are considered voguish nowadays. If you want to obtain an eye-catchy centerpiece for your party, opt for a brightly colored cake. You can incorporate more than two colors in your cake through an ombre theme, floral patterns, watercolor or washed-out prints and chevron pattern. Asymmetry is the key to modern wedding cake decoration.
We’ve seen this style used for the shape and tiers, flavor and filling, color and details of the cake. And the results were awesome! The cakes we’re showing here are unique because they are adorned with ribbons. Although many of you might say that ribbons are rather outdated decorative items, these designs are here to prove you wrong. Bows & ribbons are everywhere these days! We can see them in the bride’s gown, headpiece and shoes, in the wedding décor and in the cake.
These items are versatile and very easy to work with. You guys can follow your favorite style while working with ribbons and insert them in the way you like in the cake. This can be a wonderful DIY experience for those who are skilled in working with sweet confections and decorations. The first cake is unique because it features a chic black and white theme. The soft black ribbon with a pink rose adds the perfect elegant accent to this classy beauty. The next two cakes are inspired by artistic floral patterns. These confections look like romantic gifts and they seem ideal for summer time celebrations.
Determining the size of the wedding cake is a very important aspect to consider before making any hasty purchase. This decision is related to the amplitude of your wedding and to the guest list. You can think of the flavor and color of the cake ahead. But the design can not be chosen until you receive all the RSVP cards with the conformation from your guests. Some of us are not preoccupied with this aspect that much. It’s never a big problem if the cake turns out to be too big for your wedding party, right?
But those who are on a budget can’t afford to spend their money on an extra layer. On the other hand, the most problematic situation is when the cake is too small for the party. It’s always better to be left with a few extra slices of cake than to run out of cake! But this unpleasant situation can be avoided by asking for the advice of a specialist in field. A cake maker usually knows just how large a cake should be based on different guest lists. But you can choose a certain size according to trends.
We’ve noticed that it’s hip to bring a single-tier cake, designed in a more original way. 2-tiered confections are also voguish. They are usually picked by economical couples and by those who are having a small and intimate romantic wedding. We are big adepts of the mini cake style and we recommend this trend to all brides and grooms of today who want a more modern reception party and cake ceremony. It’s never a bad idea to bring many small cakes of a single or two tiers in different shapes, sizes, colors and flavors.
These confections are individually crafted to suit more tastes and preferences. The trend with small cakes managed to become very popular and cover the traditional layered cake current. The three tier confections are also classified as “small modern cakes”. They are part of the same unique trend, only they are more versatile. You can bring a 3 tiered cake to a formal or casual wedding. The same confection can fit an indoors and an outdoors wedding, a small and bigger wedding reception.
Those made with round tiers are the most romantic, the finest and the cutest ones! We also enjoy those that come in an alternating model. You can choose two round tiers and an oval or square one for your cake to change its look from predictable to fashionable. We like those that are covered in smooth fondant and those frosted with fluffy delicious buttercream. Both simple & clean and textured designs are in vogue nowadays. The ombre ruffled models are by far our favorites!
When choosing the most adequate cake for your reception you have to take into consideration a few essential coordinates of the wedding. Besides the formality and style of the wedding, the modern bride can consider her wedding gown color and design, now that there are so many trends with fashion-inspired wedding cakes. The theme you picked for the party should also influence the aspect and taste of your cake. In fact, it is highly advisable to use the same colors, motifs and perhaps accessories you used throughout the décor for your wedding cake.
Experts in field say that the wedding cake should be a reflection of the wedding style and theme. Consider the venue and the season. We’ve seen many gorgeous confections inspired by the tonality of the season and the specific of the wedding locale. If you’re planning on decorating your cake with flowers, don’t forget to consider the blooms you used for the centerpieces and perhaps for your own bridal adornment. It’s clever to stick to in-season flowers because they are cheaper and also fresher. They can add more naturalness and richness to your cake.
We found a few delightful round wedding cakes with flowers for this article. This style is one of our favorite because it is romantic, elegant and very sweet. There are many designs to choose from. And you can make the final selection by size, by texture, by color or flavor. Round wedding cakes can fit both formal and casual wedding parties. It depends on the design and size. If you’re having a smaller or intimate wedding, you can opt for a 2-tier confection. Single-tiered round cakes are also adorable and inspired selections for simple outdoors wedding parties with fewer guests.
Three tier designs are a bit more sophisticated and they can suit formal and ultra-formal affairs, booked for an indoors or alfresco venue. A beautifully designed wedding cake can always add more elegance and uniqueness to a wedding. Besides this, it is a great way to express your individual taste. Let your personality shine through the beauty of your cake. Don’t forget that your wedding cake will appear in many photos and it will be one of the most admired items of your reception!
A round wedding cake can be simple and smooth or textured and extravagant. It depends on the icing and decorations you’re using. The fondant-covered types are sleek and modern. The ones covered with buttercream are fluffier, organic and more delicious. We enjoy very much the designs inspired by flowers. The round shape goes perfectly well with round fresh blooms. We like the neutral colored cakes adorned with bright flowers. But the metallic hues, ombre patterns and ruffled designs are also among our favorites.
When choosing the cake for the reception party you have to take into consideration a few essential coordinates of the wedding. First of all, you’ll have to consider the formality of the event you’re planning. At this point you can establish the most adequate design and size of the cake. It’s true that the formality of the wedding is typically related to the amplitude and venue.
Make sure that you decide on the size of the cake after you complete your guest list. It’s important to know exactly how big your wedding is going to be before making any hasty decision. You risk bringing a cake that’s too small or too large. Anyway, it’s never a real problem if the cake is too big. You will have more slices to send to those who couldn’t make it to the party or give them to the kids in your family. There are many designs out there to consider. Both big and small cake styles are in for this year’s wedding.
However, we have to admit that there is a beautiful trend nowadays based on smaller cakes. The pretty cupcake trend has been replaced by mini cakes and individual confections. These tiny sweet creations look amazing and they are incredibly versatile. You can use them instead of a big tiered cake or as wedding guest favors. There are many other ways of incorporating them in your reception. They can even be placed on the dinner tables as part of the décor.
Or, you can organize a special table of desserts and add more of your favorite cookies. Candy buffet and dessert tables that feature a big cake and other thematic sweet treats for the guests are very popular. So we should focus on small cakes today. We personally like the small cakes based on two tiers. A 2-tiered cake is something special and intriguing. The “regular” size is of three tiers and we have to admit that it looks more balanced this way. But a two tier cake? How does this design look like? In our opinion it is very elegant, sweet and unique. Its unusual size makes it such an appealing selection for a modern wedding.
These types of cakes are fresh and contemporary, youthful and playful. They are great for casual wedding parties, but also for simple and smaller affairs. 2-tiered cakes deal for medium size wedding celebrations, but they can also be incorporated in bigger affairs. You can bring more of these cakes and arrange them on a special table. Instead of using a traditional layered cake, choose various small cakes in different sizes and designs. This will add more diversity to your party. Use different colors and flavors for a versatile taste.
Just how sweet yet bold the ombre style is? We are huge fans of the ombre theme and we recommend it to all modern brides who want something hot, trendy and eye-catchy for their wedding. There is something very intriguing about this style that makes more and more couples interested in adopting it for their big day. The graduated colors from the same palette make this theme fascinating! In most cases, we can see the ombre effect produced within red, pink and purple themes.
These color palettes are the richest in derived shades, next to blue and green palettes. You can use any of these hues to create an ombre inspired wedding. You can start with your cake. Many newlyweds who have decided to follow this trend had the chance to spot an ombre themed wedding cake on the internet and fell for it. An ombre wedding cake can make a great impact even on those who are not easy to impress or convince.

The beauty of the ombre style and its uniqueness consist in a charming gradual effect. Instead of using a strident contrast between two colors, we suggest you use all the shades from the same palette, from the palest to the boldest. This will surely make your wedding décor or item more elegant, unified and fashionable. Who would have thought that the gradient palette can serve such a great purpose in a modern wedding? The blending between shades from the same palette is ravishing.
The colors melt together and form the softest dramatic palette ever! The most surprising thing is that the ombre theme can fit perfectly both simple and artistic cakes. We love those that feature ruffles, frills, dots, stripes, chevron patterns and plaids. Those that feature geometrical tiers or patterns also look breathtaking when emphasized with ombre shades.
