Brides and grooms of the present moment have the opportunity of going back in time and choose a special theme for their wedding. When current trends are not satisfactory anymore, the couple can seek more inspiration in the old styles. This is a very common practice for our wedding designers too. They are the ones who initialized this quest for old wedding style treasures that can be updated to suit the preferences of our exigent contemporary newlyweds.
We admit that we too are big fans and adepts of old-fashion currents when it comes to weddings. We can discuss here about more originality and authenticity but the list of qualities is even longer at this chapter. You are free to pick any theme or style you want. Think about the type of wedding you would like to organize, experience and share with your guests. If you’re more on the romantic side, we suggest you consider a Victorian theme. Brides love this style and find it very elegant and sumptuous for a wedding. Do you like more the geometrical and dramatic style? Then you will surely like the Art Deco style. We should stop here for a few moments.
The Deco style is one of the most sought-after by modern brides and grooms for their wedding. The boldness of the patterns proposed by this style is the quality that attracts and captivates the attention of our newlyweds. When it comes to wedding cakes, the Art Deco theme is amazing! The roaring ’20 can offer a rich source of inspiration to those who want a fun and playful wedding. The styles promoted during this period are very chic, cheerful and vibrant. The colors are also bright and daring and the shapes even more adventurous. This is an edgy approach on a juicy romantic wedding and we must confess that we like this alternative for the offbeat couples who prefer something more imposing. We always thought that the Art Deco style can be reflected at its best in wedding cakes.
This confection gives you the opportunity to express the specificity of the Deco style and enhance its striking charm. The shapes are bold, powerful and sharp. The colors are also vivacious and very energizing. This is why Art Deco weddings are based on a lot of dynamism and entertaining activities. You can choose a hexagonal shaped cake or simple square tiers. The clean surface and the bold details form a fabulous contrast that we like very much. You can use semi-precious gemstones to decorate the cake and other bold accents to make it look more glamorous and extravagant. The Deco style is spectacular due to its understated elegance and bold simplicity. What do you say of this style?
