Pink Wilmington Wedding: Erin + Scott

It was love at first sight when Erin and Scott met each other on a connecting flight between two airports (yes, true story!) They now live in Colorado and, while there are plenty of picturesque settings in the mountains, Erin wanted to wed back home — near the beach. Erin and Scott were married at the beautiful Brooklyn Arts Center in historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. We are so delighted to share their story as it unfolded, thanks to their photographer Photos by Kristopher. You’ll love their pretty pink, green, and white color palette, vintage inspired touches throughout (the wildflower seed packets are a favorite!) and their romantic aisle, which was decorated with pink petals and soft candlelight in blue jars. Enjoy!

Fake Wedding Cakes That Actually Look Real

Are you a bride who loves cake, but you loathe the idea of spending hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on a wedding cake? Do you have a specific vision in mind, but you think it would be too complicated or too expensive? Or perhaps you’re planning a summer wedding and you don’t want to worry about your cake standing the humid, hotter-than-hot temps outdoors. If you said yes to any of these, one of these fake wedding cakes might be the right choice for you.

What are faux wedding cakes?

A fake wedding cake is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a display that is made entirely of Styrofoam and gumpaste, fabric, or fondant. It is designed to look like a real cake.

Can You Still Do a Cake Cutting?

Yes! Many fake wedding cakes are designed to have a ‘slice’ removed, so it looks more realistic. Or, we’ve seen some cakes that are three tiered, with the top being the only ‘real’ cake (the bottom two are dummies). You can have a small one-tiered cake made just for you and set it aside. It’s not exactly the same, but you get the idea.

Will Anyone Know the Difference?

Probably not. I mean, it’s not like anyone is going to actually go up and touch it. In fact, many guests totally miss the cake at the beginning of the reception anyway, and the cake cutting happens almost immediately (right before dinner). And many times, a couple will have a really gorgeous wedding cake, but it’s not big enough to feed everyone. That’s because there are sheet cakes in the kitchen, and your caterers will be serving cake to guests from the sheet cake anyway. So, who will know?

How Are They Used?

Fake wedding cakes (also known as faux cakes or dummy cakes) have been used for years in photo shoots, but couples are using them at their reception, too. These cakes will stand up through any weather, any amount of time, and you don’t have to worry about keeping it covered or away from bugs and direct sunlight.


Fake Wedding Cakes: 12 Realistic Examples

Now that you know more about what fake wedding cakes are, we can show you the pretties that we found! Now, not all fake wedding cakes are created equally, so if you’re going to pick one be careful. You’ll want to pick one that actually looks real so it wont look hokey or cheap. On our quest, we found some of the prettiest fake wedding cakes that ever existed! These look real… but they’re totally faux.

Blush Wedding Dress Sash from Floral Jewellery

We’ve been seeing a lot of blush wedding finds lately, but this dress sash is one of our favorites! We spotted it over at Floral Jewellery where Vaida is crafting up floral pretties like this one. And while I used to not be one for a dress sash (I always thought it took away from the gown), it’s finds like these that have really changed my mind! Take a look, it’s stunning!
