Why we love fall weddings? The answer is pretty simple if you think about it: autumn is the season of the harvest! Can you imagine something more opulent, delicious and elegant than this season for a wedding? And when we ask this question we refer especially at wedding cakes. Fall is a bountiful time of the year when everything you wish can be found and tastes.
We like seasonal wedding cakes because they are usually based on the colors and flavors proposed by the season. When it comes to fall, your wedding cake can be a little bit spicier. The flavors available in autumn are rich and decadent. Chocolate is not the only flavor to go, although this choice is extremely smooth and flattering for many people. You can choose cream-cheese or pumpkin for a less popular unique taste. Some brides and grooms prefer a more modern approach on their cake’s flavor.
This is why so many of them choose a pecan or even an apple pie type of “cake” for their party. These types of confections can be served in addition to a traditional cake or they can totally replace the classic tiered cake. We like fall cakes because they can be decorated according to the beauty and uniqueness of the season. Your cake can be beautified with fall leaves, pine cones, twigs and branches, acorns, squash and even mini pumpkins! There are many delicious ideas at this point we suggest you to get inspired from! Your cake can also be based on seasonal flowers. The blooms available in fall are lush, ruffled and very vibrant.
You can use gerbera daises, dahlias, chrysanthemums, spider mums, roses or carnations. As for the colors, anything based on browns, deep reds, plums, burgundies, oranges and yellows can fit. Choose marigolds, bronzes, golds and sage greens for a more whimsical and original color mix. If you are nostalgic for spring or summer, choose a dark pink or magenta tonality. You should not settle for less. The possibilities of accessorizing your cake in a more personal way are numberless! Use sliced oranges, macadamia nuts, blueberries and strawberries for the cake or even for the table.
The cake’s display should also be decorated properly. Use silk or real leaves in various shades, ornamental pumpkins, pine cones and squash. This will add more elegance, uniqueness and a thematic vibe to the cake. You can go typical and use the harvest theme for the cake or choose something more whimsical and modern, like woodsy or rustic theme. You can insert wheat grass, sugar apples and other juicy fruits in your cake for a more appetizing and rich effect. Marzipan wedding cakes can also make a fabulous match for a fall wedding party!
Seasonal weddings are all the rage! We can see a lot of wedding decorations inspired by different tonalities and nature-inspired landscapes out there and we must confess that we are very thrilled to experience this trend. The warm seasons are not the only ones explored by our designers.
It’s true that spring and summer are the most popular periods of the year our couples choose for their wedding. But colder months are also taking into consideration or worth considered by. We should focus on the fall season today. Autumn is the season of harvest and this is why it is such an abundant time! You can find lots of rich colors, flavors, flowers and nature elements of décor in fall. And when it comes to wedding decorations, this is a big plus.
Fall wedding cakes nowadays look like real masterpieces. There are many beautiful themes to choose from when it comes to this season. The designs with fall leaves are the most popular and perhaps the most expressive. You can decorate your own cake with different foliages and seasonal items. Fallen leaves of autumn come in a wide palette or rusty and intense hues. You can use russets, rich reds, brunt oranges, forest and hunter greens, chocolate browns, maroons, bright yellows, plums, deep violets and others.
You can focus on a gold theme and insert a few golden leaves, fruits and vines in your cake.
