Simple and chic, this timeless invitation suite and cake combo was made for the elegantly understated bride. Cool baby blue tones, subtle floral detail and crushed velvet ribbon all marry together in a soft, yet stately design by Jo’s Paper Kitchen. Meanwhile, a two-tiered airbrushed and gold-flecked cake from Alchemy Bake Lab is giving us all the Cinderella vibes, complete with a champagne-colored fondant bow.
From the stationers at Joyful Soul Calligraphy: “This simple wildflower suite is for the boho or minimalist bride. She has a love for nature and the simplicity and beauty that it brings. This is my favorite because even though it is simple, it truly makes a powerful statement of serenity and love. I also used my grandparents’ names as the bride and groom, so it made it that much more special to me!”
From the bakers at Cake Conspiracy: “Textured fondant is on trend so we decided to pair a simple pattern with some whimsical gum paste wildflowers to complement the invitation. We like to experiment with pottery tools and this textured rolling pin has a subtle leaf pattern that fits well with the theme. I absolutely love the frilly ruffles of carnations, and they were my favorite part of the design.”
Secret garden dreams come to life in this floral-adorned invitation suite from Bering’s with a sweet summertime palette. Dress it down with romantic greenery around your wedding or dress it up with luxe gold accents. Punchy pink tones were paired with a towering, modern wedding cake design by The Chocolate Llama Cake Company that is sure to take your breath away!
Cheery yellow makes for modern and fun paperie and dessert details. A cubist cake design and flawless edible script were just a few of the features Marblelous Cakes included for a tasteful and trendy vibe.
From the stationers at Joyful Soul Calligraphy: “This invitation suite was specifically designed for the fun-loving, summer bride. The bright yellow with the white stripes and black lettering gives the recipient the feeling of joy and happiness.”
Delicate pastel shades steal our hearts throughout this simple floral invitation suite designed by Bering’s with the modern romantic in mind. Keeping cool tones at the forefront, a touch of sweetness was brought to the scene in the form of miniature pies, macarons and more from Alchemy Bake Lab that make easy (and adorable) party bites.
We don’t know how these invitations designed by Jo’s Paper Kitchen could blend rustic leather and rose tones any more beautifully. Keep it simple and sweet with solid bordered paperie, nestled in a decorative sleeve and gold wax seals donning your new initials.
From the bakers at The Flour Petal Bakery: “I absolutely loved this cake; When I saw the invitations I knew I wanted to do something sparkly and mauve. The peony, gold leaves and copper ribbon tied everything back to the gorgeous invitations!”
