Groom cakes are increasingly popular at weddings and are most commonly a surprise from the bride. This type of cake is generally created with the groom’s favourite hobby, past time or sports team in mind.
For some brides, the planning process can be an extremely stressful time with countless decisions needing to be made from the venue, food, invitation design and wedding décor to name a few. To show how appreciative and grateful the bride is of her new husband during this stressful time of wedding planning, many brides have a custom groom’s cake made in their honor.
However, if you want to have a groom’s cake and don’t think your bride will be surprising you at the reception with one, you can always see if it’s possible to squeeze one into your wedding budget. This will allow you to be involved with making decisions on the style and design of your groom’s cake.
What’s your thought on this increasingly popular trend?

With a mix of pink tones, ivory and gold, this table caters to the ladies who love pink and all things feminine!
A bold pink backdrop adorned with ivory frames adds contrast against the softer pink tones on the table. Ivory napkins, menus, candles and two-toned florals help soften and unite the multiple shades of pink.
Custom favour boxes add a subtle texture and a tasty treat while the beautiful gold chiavaris balance this pretty in pink tablescape. For an iridescent effect in the stemmed candleholders, add water or clear water pearls with a floating candle.

Country themed weddings continue to grow in popularity with today’s bride and it’s no surprise with their rustic charm. If you decide to have a country wedding on a family farm this would be the perfect opportunity for you to include your favourite (or the calmest) horse into your wedding. Surprise everyone by riding in on your beloved horse to amp up the country theme.
If you have been dreaming of your wedding day since you were a little girl while watching your favourite Disney princess movies, you may be inclined to choose this grand entrance. Bring your childhood dreams to life with a princess style entrance and nothing says princess like a horse drawn carriage.
A growing trend for green and vintage weddings is for brides to arrive on bikes! Peddle your way down the aisle solo or on a tandem bike allowing someone else to peddle as you ride on the back, which is perfect if you will be wearing a slim fitting dress.
For the adrenaline bride, surprise your guests and perhaps even your soon-to-be-husband by arriving on a zip line! This entrance will take some preparation and a venue that either has a permanent zip line like a camp, or talk to your venue to see if they will allow a professional team to set up a temporary zip line.
Whether you take the traditional walk down the aisle to your favourite song or an unexpected arrival, we hope that you do it without a hitch!

We all hope for a smooth and crisis free wedding day; however, on the rare occasion issues do arise. If you opt to hire an onsite wedding planner they typically have their own wedding emergency kit on hand in preparation of a complication. If you are not hiring an onsite wedding planner don’t fret. You can also be ready for any situation on your wedding day by creating your own wedding day emergency kit.
Items you should include in your kit:
- Mini sewing kit. If you don’t want to buy one create own sewing kit with thread that matches your dress, bridesmaids and a trusty black.
- A bottle of clear nail polish to stop pesky runs in panty-hoes and prevent nail chips from expanding.
- Nail file for those untimely hang nails.
- Band-aids, preferably clear for any cuts or blisters.
- White chalk to cover up any stains on your wedding dress
- Lint roller
- Safety pins
- Bobby pins
- Eyelash glue
- Lip chap
- Pencil erasers (in case you lose the backs of earrings)
- Wet naps
Store all these items in a cute medium cosmetic bag for easy transportation and storage. We wish you all the best on your wedding day and hope that you won’t have a need to open up your wedding emergency kit!

For some, the thought of getting married without their beloved pooch is unimaginable. The inclusion of pets during the ceremony and/or wedding photos has become increasingly popular with today’s animal loving couples.
Nowadays you can find adorable coloured bow ties, tuxes and dresses for your dog to sport during your special day. However, if you want to make your furry friend an honorary bridesmaid or groomsman, get their outfit custom made to match your bridal party! If your dog isn’t a fan of wearing anything besides his collar, splurge on a grooming to get your best friend groomed to the nines!
Pets truly become part of the family and are the most loyal friend a person can have so it’s no surprise that more and more couples are incorporating their furry little friends into the wedding processions. Will your furry friend make an appearance sometime during your wedding?
