Wedding Wednesday: Blissful Inspiration ~ The Dessert Edition

Salutations Wedding Wednesday Stationery and Wedding Cakes

We are so excited on this Wedding Wednesday to share with you some beautiful designer cakes in the Dessert Edition of Blissful Inspiration! The Runway Edition was so fun, that we thought we would take the same approach to this week’s post, but with artful desserts by some of the best bakers in the world.

This is our roundup of favorite wedding sweets ~ and the wedding invitations we think match up perfectly.

Salutations Sweet and Saucy Cake Wedding Inspiration

We are in love with this beautiful cake by Sweet and Saucy Shop. It encompasses two of our favorite wedding trends for this spring/summer {and beyond}: the gray + peach trend and the sleek + frilly trend. Gray is such a soft, wonderful neutral and it seems like every year a new pairing is trending {a few years back it was pink + gray, and then later yellow + gray}. For 2013, we definitely love peach + gray, and this cake combines both colors beautifully!

Salutations Wedding Invitations Smock Letterpress Invitations

We would recommend this fabulous Chablais letterpress suite by Smock for the bride attracted to this trend. Notice the beautiful pairing of peachy and gray letterpress ink colors and, like the cake, there is a perfect balance of sleek and frilly. We love how the decorative motif on the sleek sleeve matches up with the similar juxtaposition in the cake!

Salutations Wedding Inspiration Martha Stewart Cake

This cake from Martha Stewart Weddings is an absolute stunner and showcases our next big wedding trend perfectly! That trend is statement edging {in this case, punctuated by pink}. The look is chic, festive and very much in tune with fashion.

Salutations Wedding Inspiration Dauphine Letterpress Invitation

These gorgeous Kensington invitations by Dauphine Press, with edge painting, are a fabulous choice for brides in love with this bold trend. Like the pink in the cake, the edge painting on these invitations frames each one stylishly.

Salutations Wedding Inspiration Lael Cakes Metallic

Finally, one of our favorite wedding trends right now is metallic ~ more specifically chic, simple metallic accents that add an air of sophistication and style to whatever event they grace. This cake by Lael Cakes is a perfect example of this trend. The topper and colors are chic, and the metallic gold and silver is breathtaking, but its simple size {one layer as opposed to many} creates an understated elegance.

Salutations Wedding Inspiration Bella Figura Letterpress Foil Invitation

We would recommend the stunning Gracieux letterpress foil invitation by Bella Figura to go along with this trend. There is a chicness about the angled calligraphy, the metallic is festive, and yet overall it is simple {foregoing detailed floral motifs and other components}.

We hope this that this trend breakdown has inspired you to find sweet inspiration and incorporate it into your wedding stationery and your big day! Remember, inspiration is everywhere!
