‘Tis the Season to Get Engaged–Now Let the Wedding Planning Begin!
According to the Fairchild Bridal Group, the publisher of Modern Bride, 26% of all marriage proposals happen in November and December. It makes sense as the holidays are for gathering with family making us feel much closer to the ones we love. Did it happen to you this holiday season? If it did–Congratulations!!! And now–the planning begins.
The first place we’d recommend starting with is a website called The Knot. Whether you plan on hiring a wedding planner, which the website can help you find, or plan on orchestrating the wedding yourself, The Knot is extremely comprehensive. The ‘Planning 101’ section offers advice such as: how to pay for your wedding; wedding dates to avoid; tipping advice; saving money on your reception; the best places for a honeymoon and more. Then, of course, there are the other sections that cover: venues, photography/video; invitations; flower vendors; cake and dessert creators; DJs; jewelers; dresses, etc. It’s a great website to cruise through for ideas on how to make your wedding day one of the most perfect and memorable days of your life.
Your wedding cake, being the focal point at the reception should embody the couples personality as they come together. What will your wedding cake say about you? Will it be elegant and classic? Fun and funky? Simple and sleek? Whatever you choose, let it be an expression of who you are as a couple.
So while you’re here and reading this blog post, we’d like to show you some of the cakes and desserts we offer at 3 Sweet Girls Cakery for weddings and bridal showers.
Let’s start with the bridal shower which will undoubtedly be a fun filled event with close friends and family. From mini cupcakes to cake pops to wedding cake shaped cut out cookies, we offer extensive options and will work with you on special designs and colors.
Now on to the cakes. Weddings are where we really shine and helping you with your special day is a serious matter to all involved in our kitchen. From the planning stage to the creation, you can be assured that your cake will be creative, beautiful, and delicious. Okay, well of course we’re going to say that, but what are others saying?
“We decided to opt for a less traditional approach and went with cupcakes instead of a large cake. We had mini cupcakes with 5 different flavors and a small bride & groom cake. The cupcakes were phenomenal and our guests are still raving about them! Lisa and her team were a breeze to work with and took the stress out of the wedding day! Thanks again!” – Lauren & Kevin
“Lisa and her girls did an amazing job on our custom wedding cake order. Rather than a traditional cake or a cupcake tower, we opted for a small single-tier cake for each table at our reception, and a small two-tier cake for the wedding party. The frosting perfectly complemented our wedding flowers and colors, and they were delicious! We ended up with 5 (yes 5!) flavors – Vanilla, Red Velvet, Salted Caramel, Red Raspberry Chocolate Ganache, and Carrot. Our guests are still raving about being able to cut their own delicious cake! Thank you!” – Brett B.
And last, but not least, let’s talk about dessert tables and replacing a traditional wedding cake with a cupcake tower or cake pop display. Many couples choose to do this as it’s an opportunity to have something for everyone and most people find the desserts are completely consumed as people feel more comfortable going back for more. Here’s what some of our customers have to say who have gone the route of choosing cupcakes and cake pops over the traditional wedding cake:
“I did not want the typical wedding cake. I loved the idea of cupcakes. We went in to their shop and we were NOT disappointed. We got to try cupcakes of ALL different flavors. We got to pick out a cake that matched our color and theme. Lisa, the owner, worked so hard to keep us comfortable and deliver what we wanted – we were not disappointed. We got cupcakes, mini cupcakes, a small tiered cake for just us and cake pops. We ordered well over 300 for our 150 guest list and only had 8 left. Everything tasted fresh, it was organized when we picked it up and I could not have been any happier when I saw the finished result. If you want to step out of the wedding cake idea, go here. Lisa is incredible and so, so sweet. The cupcakes, cake pops – everything taste incredible and your guests will love it. Mine did. We still go there just for cupcakes every now and again. Perfect!!! :)” – Ashley H.
“Rather than a traditional wedding cake, we opted for a dessert display. I wanted cupcakes, cake pops and fun stuff like whoopie pies and novelties. Lisa has a great product and the quality was excellent. We added a couple of cakes in there too and we cut into a very small ‘traditional’ cake that was simple. She worked with me from the beginning and was flexible to what I needed and wanted. Imet with a couple of cake people and they didn’t share the enthusiasm for doing some different… I appreciated Lisa’s enthusiasm and it was a lot of fun! (and beautiful to boot!)” – Christa E.
So there you go! We help this helps you get inspired to get started on your wedding planning. Good luck and congratulations! You’re on your way to writing a new chapter in your life and it’s going to be excellent. Let us know how we can help 😉
