How About the Groom's Cake?



If you are from the south, you have probably seen many groom's cakes displayed at a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner.If not, you may remember the groom's cake from the movie "Steel Magnolias" starring Julia Roberts. It was a red velvet armadillo cake...not exactly the most appetizing of cakes.  Luckily most groom's cakes are definitely more appealing.

In the United States, a groom's cake is a wedding tradition typically associated with the South. While a wedding cake may often be decorated in white and light in texture or color, the groom's cake can take a variety of forms, possibly associated with groom's hobbies, favorite team,interests, etc. It is often served at a table separate from the wedding cake at a wedding reception or it may be served as a dessert for a rehearsal dinner.  

Although it used to be viewed as an added and unnecessary expense, this once-neglected cake has been making a huge comeback. Intended to be a gift from the bride to the groom.  Boxed slices of groom's cake can also serve as your wedding favors. If you go this route, take advantage of the opportunity to get creative with the packaging -- an additional way to reflect your wedding style.

Yellow and Blue Wedding

Yellow and blue are an ideal combination for your wedding, especially if it is taking place 
during the summer. Using one color as the main shade for your wedding, with an accent color complementing it, can change your wedding from "blah" to "wow."The yellow/blue combo is one of those "wow" combinations. 

 Blue dresses with yellow accents or flowers really make the blue pop. Yellow roses with blue ribbons along the aisle will complement the attire. This color combination is pretty interchangeable.

If you are considering a yellow/blue color combination, enjoy the following ideas  you can use for your wedding day!
