I know I have mentioned it before, but I love cupcakes. They somehow are always just the right amount of dessert, have a perfect cake to frosting ratio and don't require the fussiness of a plate and fork (making it that much easier to NOT turn them down..)
Using cupcakes in place of a wedding cake has been a trend that we have seen more and more in the last few years and one that I love. There are tons of gorgeous ways to display the little treats- I love the idea of stacking vintage cake pedestals to create a cupcake tower or adorning the tops of the cupcakes with fresh flowers for a punch of color. An all white cupcake tower with white wrappers mimic the look of a traditional wedding cake and can look stunning too.
How gorgeous are these lacy wrappers I found at Estillo Weddings? They seem like the perfect way to have the playful whimsy of a cupcake, but still a completely elegant look for a wedding. :)
Prices vary a lot for these online. They're the best from Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lisasu
Really good finds. Thanks!
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
