If you are one of those couples who would like to steer clear of the traditional celebration, then a beach wedding is a perfect alternative for you. Once you have chosen the perfect venue for your wedding, it’s time to begin shopping for your beach themed wedding cake.
The first question you need to ask yourself while choosing a beach themed wedding cake is what would be the perfect cake topper to put on the topmost layer of our cake?
If you have not considered all of your options yet, here are some that you may find perfect as your topper.
- Sand dollars
- Palm trees
- Sand Castles
- Beach Chairs
If you still haven’t decided on which topper to choose on your beach wedding cake, here are some more ideas:
Beautiful Seashell Cakes
One of the most common and favorite design is the seashell. You have the option to place the seashell as the topper alone or incorporate it to the design of your entire cake. The shells can be made from icing, chocolate, candy, or you can even go for real seashells. If you are feeling a little brave and adventurous, you can combine the seashells with flowers for an elegant, sophisticated, and natural wedding cake design.
Speaking of flowers, you also have the option to use flowers as the design for your cake. One important element of a beach wedding is the tropical flowers. Whether you are opting for fresh flowers or flowers made of icing, the tropical flowers can be arranged in a way that is pleasing to the eyes.
Elegant Coral Decorations
No beach wedding is complete without the corals. It is one of the most beautiful features of the ocean. It is unfortunate as it is rarely used as cake designs. Corals have the most elaborate designs, amazing colors, and natural beauty which can be a good choice for wedding cake designs.
When you think of seaweeds, you may not expect it to be used as a wedding cake design. However, any skilled cake designer can make seaweeds look perfect and lovely on any cake, especially if paired with starfish or shells.
Sea Life Inspired Beach Wedding Cakes
There are a lot of inspirations for beach wedding cakes in nearly anything. Consider the place where you plan to hold your wedding ceremony and allow it to give you great ideas.
For example, a lighthouse or palm trees can be a great design for your cake. Those who are into beach sports may want to get inspiration from their hobbies. Some of the sea animals such as chocolate coated dolphins or sea horses and an open sea shell with a small bride and groom can be a great cake design and topper.
Also, don’t forget about the most abundant element, water. It is a great way to finish any beach inspired design, whether it is on its own or paired with any other beach design you can think of.
