Naked Wedding Cake Trend : Naked Chocolate with Golden Center Tier Cake

cake-with-gold-middle

Take a look at this fall-inspired wedding cake.

While the jury is still out on the whole “naked wedding cake” trend (since we do love frosting), this naked chocolate cake with the golden center tier is stunning.

Naked chocolate cakes seem a bit more dramatic than a naked white cake and the addition of a gold-foil embellished center tier adds some glitz and glamour to a rustic-looking cake.

The center tier is fully frosted with just a touch of gold foil – and you really don’t need much else on the cake. The addition of some greens is nice, but you could also add some seasonal blooms instead.

First Dance Songs; Ideas for Hopeless Romantics

We feel a bit mushy after putting this playlist together!

As you know, we have a serious penchant for wedding music, and are often working away on our Spotify page making playlists, and adding new songs to our favourite old ones.

And today, seeing as we were feeling the love, we wanted to share our ultimate picks of first dance song ideas (it did start as a small list, but as always, we just couldn’t stop!

Your first dance is one of the most special moments of your wedding, it’s iconic, it’s romantic, it’s fun.

It’s a culmination of all your hard work, and your last ‘duty’ as a couple, before you get to let your hair down and party.

So make it count, with a song that’s really special, personal, and quintessentially ‘you’.

With quirky whistle-along numbers, (Vance Joy, Riptide), slick R’n’B tunes (Boyz II Men, I’ll Make Love To You), nostalgic movie ballads (Elvis Costell, She), and acoustic covers (John Mayer, XO); whether you’re a little bit country or a lot indie, we reckon this playlist has at least one song that will hit home with you and your other half.

Selecting your first dance song is often a hard choice, because you want something meaningful without being cheesey, romantic without being too intense, a song that fits in with the feel of your day, and one that’s not too fast, but not too slow either.

It’s tough!

But we think we’ve cracked it…
