The wedding cake is one of the most anticipated parts of a wedding for many guests and modern couples are experimenting with untraditional wedding cakes; everything from donut stands to delicate recreations of geodes in fondant!
The cake is one of the most visually powerful parts of a wedding (except of course for your Ellis Bridals wedding dress!) and can set the tone of your entire wedding. The British nation was blown away by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake choice and the way the centerpiece was split into three pieces and each placed upon a golden throne. They went for a stunning mix of modern and traditional elements that perfectly captured their own relationship.
Our Ellis Bridals fashion experts have thought long and hard and put together some strong looks based on some of the major wedding trends of 2018; tying in everything from your Ellis Bridals gown, the cake and even the venue!
