What is your wedding style?

Brides are finding freedom with their wedding cake designs, flavors and display options then ever before.  Couples often use their wedding cake and desserts as the focal point of their wedding reception which means it will get a lot of attention from guests.  It's not all about the cake itself, how you display your cake  and desserts can also add to the overall effect.  Display your wedding desserts with one of these five display styles:

Remember your desserts can be an accent, or a standalone feature of your wedding and doesn't necessarily have to jive with your whole "theme" or specific palette.  Go for a personal touch or use materials that really create a focal point for your reception, and if you need ideas ask your wedding planner, or consult with your photographer as they will know the types of materials that photograph well.
