The most sought-after dessert at your wedding is a focal point in itself! Before you cut the cake and stuff each other’s face, here are 4 ways to make your wedding cake table a sight to see!
When it comes to decorating the wedding cake, flowers are the most traditional element. For decades, wedding cakes have been embellished with trailing roses and greenery. That often means coordinating with your baker and florist to make the magic happen. Typically, the florist accents the cake on the day of the wedding during the flower install. Be sure to mention this to your florist if this is a service you want to be included in your floral budget.

Adding a few decor pieces can elevate the table’s overall look and feel. Drop-in some bud vases filled with loose stems to bring in more floral elements.

There’s no better way to repurpose your bridesmaid bouquets after the ceremony than on your cake table for the reception! It’s important to have a thoughtful place identified to display your bridesmaid bouquets at the reception to maximize your floral budget! If not, they’ll likely end up scattered in disarray on tables and chairs across the venue - what a waste! Right after the ceremony, have your bridesmaids drop their bridesmaid bouquets off at the cake table. Arrange the bouquets in a semi-circle around the cake to create a lush floral arch.
