Why You Should Consider a Naked Cake for Your Wedding

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Naked cakes aren’t going anywhere any time soon! They exude class with a minimalist vibe and their versatility to fit in with almost any wedding theme or color scheme is ensuring they stick around for a while.

The rustic elegance these eye catching cakes bring to the table is mesmerizing and the design possibilities are surprisingly endless. We love the simplicity of the idea that changing the flavor changes the color, it’s such an organic take on wedding cakes.

Changing the flavor to create a brown colored cake with accent middle layers of light icing and help create a more rustic feel. Whereas a lemon or vanilla cake with the same light icing will help create a more traditional wedding cake.

In case you’re still not sold on the idea of a naked cake, consider this, we’re in the South honey, and if you’re cake isn’t covered in icing, then that means it won’t melt!

Packing Tips For Your Destination Wedding

Packing for a destination wedding can be a bit more stressful than getting ready for a wedding at home. Unlike having a wedding close to home, often times you cannot just run home (or to the store) and pick up important items that you may forget for your big day. Read on to learn important tips from our wedding experts to make sure you don’t leave anything important behind.

Make a list, check it twice…or even three times…Lists will really be your best friend when packing for your destination wedding. Have a friend or relative check your list to make sure you aren’t forgetting anything. Once you are all packed up, keep that list with you so you don’t forget to pack anything for your trip home!

Keep makeup minimal– especially if you are going somewhere warm…and don’t forget your sunscreen. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you pack your own sunscreen and moisturizer. The last thing you want is to have a reaction to your sunscreen the day of your wedding.

Do you really need ALL of those shoes? Shoes can take up so.much.room. Do yourself a favor and put a few pairs back in your closet. We promise that you won’t miss them…and you’ll have a bit more room for more important things.

Carry on your wedding dress. Do not check it! This is probably one of the most important tips we can give you.

Baggage fees and overweight bags can add up quick. Instead of going over the weight limit on your bags, pack an extra one and pay the extra baggage fee. You will usually pay less for an extra bag than you would for over stuffing your luggage and paying the fee. Also, instead of flying with your extra wedding gear, ship it to your destination, pay a few extra bucks to have it insured and track it. It’s more likely to make it to your destination and not be late.
