Most of us may love the smell of flowers, but others can't stand it, or is highly allergic. Don't worry though, there's a solution to cure your stuffy nose, and teary eyes on your wedding day. Nowadays, anything can be creatively possible. Non-floral bouquets are an excellent replacement for fresh flower ones. They are just as beautiful, half the price, and you can even put one together yourself. Options for these are endless with feathers, beads and pearls, rhinestones, worn out jewelry, vintage rhinestones, fabric, and recycled material. It's a lasting keepsake, and can be passed down to your future daughters wedding, too. Consider these alternative ideas, and you will come to adore and love them just as much as we do.

Wrap some more inspirations into your wedding, and check out my top finds on Non-Floral Bouquets on our Memory Journalists Pinterest page.

2014 Wedding Cake Trends

Cake, cake, cake! Who can deny these illustrious tiers of sweets? They are a one of a kind, and there is no doubt it is a significant piece to your wedding. With so many flavors and creative designs to choose from, you'll eventually cut down to the perfect cake on your wedding day. Cakes have evolved into artistry, and this years trends are frosted with elaborate classics, modern textures, and vibrant, graduating colors. The essential part is scrumptious flavor, but detailed style and design will take over.

Classic designs like the hydrangea cake is always an option, and continue to remain popular. Its overall simplicity is glazed with neutral colors, but adding the vibrant hydrangea completes a beautiful, and elegant cake.

Wedding Cake Trends

With elegance, there's room for intricate textures. Ruffle wedding cakes are one of my favorites because of its modern appearance, and it makes quite a strong statement. It's utterly romantic, and just super creatively cool. The one below called the "Vera Ruffle," seemed like a reflection to Vera Wang's exquisite line of wedding dresses. I'd definitely hate to eat this cake.

What I won't feel bad eating are Ombre cakes. Their colors together will WOW you, but will it taste like the rainbow? Ombre cakes are always a pretty scene with different graduating shades of color that will have you wanting to try a different slice.


Wedding Cake Trends

Just like the classic hydrangea, floral wedding cakes are always a hit. You can choose fresh flowers to decorate, but make sure they are pesticide-free blooms. Or, you can have your vendor create a cascade of colorful sugar flowers. Either way, the effects of sugar flowers will beautifully drape your cake just like any accent of fresh flowers.

Dogwood wedding cakes usually blossom in spring and summer weddings. They have a unique and intense look with branches and flowers. The intense branches can be toned down to give it a softer, and charming look.

Wedding Cake Trends

If you can't come to a decision, having a mixture of designs on your cake can be done. Damask wedding cakes are often a mix of ornate patterns, ribbons, flowers, hydrangea, and ombre. These are extremely gorgeous and dreamy cakes. For these special tiers, it's all in the details, but don't limit yourself and enjoy every bite of it. If you want it all, top it off with this exceptionally elegant piece.

I hope you couples out there will do some extreme tastings, but if your event doesn't involve a cake, dont worry. There are dessert bars that can fulfill your needs just as much as a cake would! You can check out my other blog post on Wedding Dessert Bars, and pick out what will satisfy your craving. Happy Tasting!

Family Style Dinner at weddings

Family style dinner at weddings make me appreciate the interaction with all of the other strangers around me. It acts as an icebreaker, and can even save you on the table d├ęcor if you use the food as a centerpiece. A major plus is the variety of tasty dishes coming your way. Having food served this way is hardly wasteful and is budget friendly, because by dinnertime, everyone will just be diving in. Even if the table doesn't finish the food, provide to-go boxes for your guests to take the rest home. They won't be complaining about the delicious leftovers. And don't worry about a messy feast, because you can still take an approachable elegance in serving these hot or cold plates. Don't be shy, and help yourself! If you may, please pass this plate of family style inspiration to your wedding.

Mother of the Bride dresses

Let's face it, brides and grooms, you're not the only trying to look good. When the big day comes around, your mother wants to look just as stunning. I know wedding planning can get overwhelming, but don't forget to dress up your mom. There are several options of dresses and silhouettes that can make her feel amazing, and look flattering!

One-piece dresses with a V-neck line or empire waist compliment just about any body type. As shorter dresses are quite trendy this season, you can effortlessly turn this piece from a day to evening look, and it is excellent for just about any occasion. Longer dresses in this style can elongate your figure, especially for the petite.

I used to not be a fan of the Jacket Dress. But I recently attended a wedding in San Francisco, and saw this look on the bride's mother, who exuded extreme elegance with it. You always have the option of coordinating it with or without the dress.

Tahari by Arthur S. Levine, Nordstrom

Mother of the Bride dresses

I'd have to say two-pieces are my favorite, and you can always color-coordinate. It's great for covering up your imperfections, and shapes your body type in all the right ways. A peplum top can be paired with a matching skirt, or you can always go with mock two-piece that will pull off the same style and effect.
