The wedding invitation you choose will help set the tone for your wedding, so finding the perfect invitation is obviously an important wedding-planning task. And when you find that very special invitation design/color that is just what you have been looking for, chances are that you will also love it interpreted on to your wedding cake.
To help you see the possibilities of using your invitation design/color on your wedding cake, I’ve put together a dozen options in a variety of styles and colors by pairing an Exclusively Weddings’ invitation with a coordinating cake from our Colorful Wedding Cakes Pinterest board.
First up is Chevron. Chevron is definitely trending for 2014! We see it in women’s fashion, home décor, accessories …. just about everything! And of course Chevron is also popular for wedding invitations and it is a design that will translate with perfection on to a wedding cake.
At least one chalkboard accessory is seen in most all rustic and casual weddings from signs to caketops and of course cakes and invitations, too!
Roses have been a popular wedding flower for generations but yellow roses takes it up a notch for a modern look. Watercolor Roses, as seen here in yellow, is an easy transition on to a stylish, ombré, wedding cake.
Cherry Blossoms are perfect for a spring wedding as they signify the beginning of spring in many areas of the U.S. The artistic cherry blossom design is particularly gorgeous on an invitation and equally so, on a wedding cake.
For a splash of color or for accenting a vibrant palette, you can’t go wrong with a poppy …or a few!
For a little fun, go with a “Lucky in Love” invitation choice! The pink and cool-tone green translate easily in to a yummy wedding cake design, too.
Purple is always a popular wedding color and the rose is a popular wedding flower. The Watercolor Roses design combines both favorites for a design that works both for an invitation and a cake!
If you are having a beach wedding, you may want to use seashells in your décor, cake and in your invitation.
Sunny colors of gold, green and pink in your wedding invitation can be translated in to a floral design in your wedding cake. For spring and summer weddings, this is a palette that is a perfect fit.
Lace is a popular accent for weddings in 2014 and it works equally well in the design of a wedding invitation and wedding cake.
A monogram is always in style and it is trending strong in 2014. And you can’t go wrong with black and white. A black and white Damask design with a monogram is the ultimate in classic style!
It seems like every few years gold is a top trend and now it is happening in 2014! Gold is perfect with neutrals white or ivory or paired with a choice of pink, mint green, navy, and more! Nothing dazzles quite like gold!
