Cascading Blooms

By far some our favourite naked wedding cakes are the ones that include fresh flowers adorned around the cake. When arranged between tiers, blooms add the right whimsical and romantic touch!

Berry Pretty

Since naked wedding cakes expose what would normally be a mystery under thick frosting, don’t be afraid to have fun with the flavours! By having a fun component like fruit-flavoured filling with fresh berries, it enhances the overall natural-looking aesthetic of the cake and makes it that much more appealing to eat! Plus, having the filling contrast against a rich chocolate cake is berry pretty.

As a boho-chic bride, you want to look effortless. You’ll want to strive for a more natural look, with softer makeup look and simple hairstyle. A braid is very common with boho brides because of its simplicity. Also, leaving your hair down in soft waves is favorable. A half-up hairstyle is another favorite for boho brides, keeping your curls soft and pinned back. Where makeup is concerned, neutral earth tones for the eyes and lips with soft eyeliner is best. A peachy or light pink lip color will complete your whole look.

A rustic bride is mostly similar to a boho-chic bride in the sense that your hair and makeup looks are toned down, effortless and simple. Stick with neutral makeup tones, soft curls or beachy waves and a lightly colored lip.

For an up-do, its best to have your hair loose and curled but slightly unstructured. A bridal headband also makes for a perfect accessory. Sultry eyes and a pouty lip are perfect for the romantic bride. Darker shimmer colors on the eyes and a nice gloss should be the look you want to achieve.

A glam bride has a more dramatic makeup and hair look, but still beautiful for your big day. The makeup will be slightly heavier and your hair would require more effort and styling. Indoor weddings are a bonus for this type of wedding look as they offer the best atmosphere for longevity. You can achieve this look with short or long hair. Clean and sleek styles or very polished curls are your go-to when creating this glam look. A high up-do or low bun is also acceptable to achieve the look. The eyes are the main focus of this look, using false lashes that extend in the outer corners will give you a cat-eye appearance that will make your eyes appear larger – but still pretty. Another option is the smokey-eye style paired with a light or nude lip.
