Wedding Cake Design

Here's the thing. I love weddings. You would think with the amount of time that I've thought about my wedding, I would have a pretty good idea in my head of what I want it to look 
like. But I honestly have no idea. 

Not that I'm in any rush. First I should maybe get engaged. Oh wait maybe first I should have a boyfriend. Or maybe first even a potential guy to date. Yeah so REALLY no rush here to plan my wedding! I sound bitter but I'm really not. Marriage is way down the road for me and I'm perfectly okay with that. But for now, I can dream of my future wedding's design!

I really love the idea of event design in general, which is a profession that some interior design majors choose to go with. I think I would love that! My sister and I have even talked many a time about the possibility of starting our own wedding planning business someday.

The wedding cake is obviously just one of the million aspects to consider when planning a wedding design,
 but I think it's a pretty important one. 

Here are a few that I love:

Notice how different they all are? Yet another reason why I will have such a hard time choosing what direction to go for my wedding...I like everything!

Which one would you choose?

(Pssst, check out some really cute DIY wedding ideas here at my sister Kylee's blog!)

PS: As I was writing this post, my housemate jokingly asked me "Are you going to have a sloth cake at your wedding?" Then she said she was going to have sloths hanging from the ceiling at her wedding (oh gosh, looks like I won't be able to make it to your wedding, Breegan!) ...for those who didn't see in my guest post on Michaela Noelle Designs, sloths are one of my biggest fears. They freak me out. But it was brought to my attention that Kirsten Bell's boyfriend surprised her with seeing a sloth for her birthday...and she cried tears of HAPPINESS when she saw it. I'd be crying too...but of fear. And then I might break up with my boyfriend for doing such a terrible thing. ;)

Well, I didn't think I'd ever talk about wedding cakes and sloths in the same post. But I did. I went there.

Court, you sly dog. Sloths and wedding cakes...two highly emotional subjects. I'm crying sooooo hard right now!

1) You crack me up. Watch out... it's always the ones that say they're not getting married anytime soon that get swept away in a month or two! 2) I LOVE those first 2 cakes. The first one is so unique and pretty and the second on is so classy!! 3) that sloth video killed me. So funny. Love your blog girl. Following now!

Oh my gosh! That's hilarious (video) and your post too! Who woulda thought..sloths and wedding cakes flow together so well????? Made me chuckle! And all those cakes are gooooorgeous AND HOW! And about which cake is my fave?? Hmm... I was thinking that definitely not the last one cause I'm not too much into chocolate..but now that I'm looking at it...I. Just. Don't. Know!

One thing in common with all these cakes is that they are stacked. So you have a jumping off point. Plus the designs are (mostly) simple with some embellishment. This post brought back so many memories of when I had a wedding cake business 10 years ago. May have to get out that piping bag and make something.

These cakes are so pretty! I love the purple one as well as the b&w one. Daydreaming is always pleasant, isn't it? Especially of cake. :)

i love that you're okay with being single for right now. maybe we're the only two, but at least we don't have any gifts to buy for a dude this Valentine's Day (more money for chocolate for US, riight?!)

OH. MY. GOSH. That first cake may be one of the most beautiful cakes I've ever seen.

But a sloth cake would definitely top it:)
