One of the most difficult (and delicious!) decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process can definitely be the wedding cake! From cake flavors and colors, to embellishments and shape, there are so many aspects to a cake, all of which have a wide range of options, making it particularly hard to settle on a sweet treat that will not only match your style, but the theme of your wedding as well.

We absolutely love the wondrous world of wedding cakes, so we’ve chosen a few common wedding themes and picked some great cakes for each to give you a bit of inspiration in your own wedding planning journey! Just remember, at the end of the day, your wedding is all about you and your partner, so your dessert should be whatever you want it to be!


Since the dawn of wedding cakes, the classic choice has always been a tiered cake smothered in white frosting and white embellishments. It’s no wonder that this white-on-white style has withstood the test of time- it’s super crisp and chic, and will look great at any wedding, no matter what the theme is! Add some greenery or florals that match your decor for an exciting pop of color!


Outdoor ceremonies in scenic country hills, barn receptions, sipping wine from mason jars- the country chic wedding is all the rage right now, and so are rustic cakes that take inspiration from the natural world by incorporating fun patterns in the frosting and a ton of fresh fruits and florals. One of the biggest cake trends in recent seasons has been the naked or nearly naked cake, which has a more casual, natural feel that would pair perfectly with a rustic affair.


Minimalism has been a huge trend in weddings lately, so it seems only natural that modern wedding cakes would reflect that theme. Modern wedding cakes incorporate a ton of angles and clean lines that give the cake a crisp look, while also using patterns and color that may feel unexpected in the wedding setting. Marble and ombre have been super in and would be great choices for any couple that want to incorporate some fun color into their reception.


Weddings are already super romantic and you can add to the feelings of romance by incorporating soft colors, dreamy details and touches of whimsy to your wedding cake! It can be adding lace appliques to your cake, a pile of pastel florals, or even the addition of a single pastel ribbon to add a lovable little detail to an otherwise minimalist cake- no matter what you choose, your guests will fall in love with your cake!

Unique and Creative

Since your wedding is a celebration of you and your partner, your cake should be a representation of your unique personalities too! A creative cake doesn’t shy away from using striking color and unconventional shapes, like a realistic pineapple! Anything can be inspiration for your wedding day treat, including art, flower vases, a beloved pet, or anything that makes you smile! Just be yourself and go all out with your cake to inject a sense of wonder and fun into your wedding day festivities!


We hope we didn’t make you too hungry with all of these cakes!
