Do You Know What Kind of Cake Matches Your Wedding Theme?

We just can’t stress enough how important having a wedding theme is! You’ve heard me before, when I talked about making your dream wedding come to life, putting together your mood board, and your color combos. From your headpiece, to your invites, and even your cake–everything’s going to stem from your wedding theme. So to prove how important your wedding theme is, I decided to look for cakes (because let’s face it, who think of cakes when you think of wedding themes, right?) that will suit different kinds of wedding themes. (If you’re still deciding on your wedding theme, this might help you!)

Wedding Cakes for Different Wedding Themes


BOHEMIAN What makes a boho cake? Dreamcatchers, lush greens, and over the top flowers are all characteristics of a boho cake!

MODERN Think details! Like geometric patterns, hand-painted designs, even writing! Modern cakes are usually marbled cakes, smaller in size, and can even feature ombre colors.

RUSTIC Are you familiar with naked cakes? They're staples in rustic weddings. With minimal frosting and fondant, they're usually decorated with succulents, leaves, and/or fruit.
