Navy Blue Wedding Palette

This ultra-preppy color makes for one fabulous wedding color. Often paired with chartreuse or classic white this color puts tradition first, and adds a certain masculinity to the palette. Navy is the perfect color to incorporate into a nautical theme and is great for yacht club settings, or beach weddings. Navy is a great alternative to black. ~

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.
