Wedding Cakes

Summer’s almost here, and as such, so is primetime wedding season! We feel for all the brides (and grooms) out there who are running the last-minute errands on their to-do lists! One of the many 11th-hour items on any couple’s agenda is making a decision on the cake. Our friends at SnapKnot provided us with some of their favorite cake shots for inspiration (plus a couple of cookies and pies, for the less-traditional path). Just look at all the different ways to incorporate a sweet treat into your wedding!

It’s officially fall, and here at Lover.ly, we can hardly wait to feel the cool crisp breeze, hear the crackling leaves under our boots and play with some of our favorite color combinations of the season. Fall weddings invite enchanting color combinations like deep emerald green and whimsical
rose gold.

Is there anything more romantic than an evening wedding? Twinkling lights, jewel-toned bridesmaids dresses paired with the perfect sparkly clutch (how about upping the twinkle-factor with a glittered manicure?) and champagne flowing freely with your nearest and dearest? Now that’s how we like to kick off the fall wedding season!

Over at Lover.ly, we’ve got gold fever! Luxurious gold tones lend themselves beautifully to fall and winter weddings, but we’re in love with one combination in particular that makes gold the perfect choice for warm-weather weddings: seafoam and gold.

Not quite blue, not quite green, seafoam is the perfect romantic summer wedding color! Gilded accents like gold place settings and sparkly trim bring the colors alive…we’re especially smitten with ranunculus and dusty miller for the florals in this scheme, bringing a bit of rustic romance and tying it all together!
