Have you seen this show on BBC called Sherlock? It’s pretty amazing, in so far as detective shows go. When Lorna Lovecraft took her admiration for the series to a whole new level with a Sherlock inspired wedding shoot, the color palette, bouquets, lace-detailed everything fit right in. But what we loved most was the vintage silhouette cake which totally stole the show. We’ve seen an awesome silhouette wedding cake in the past, but this, um, takes the cake. Read on to see it!
Silhouette Cake for Weddings
This cake features three tiers, cascading flowers more incredible than any we’ve seen yet, lace embellishment along the bottom and top tiers, “pearls” made with icing, and the crowning touch: a silhouette detail of the bride and groom. It’s all set on an elegant, vintage-inspired white cake stand.
Almost too good to eat, no?
And, since I couldn’t resist, here are some other snapshots from the shoot. The groom’s attire = a perfect look for this vintage vibe!
Get ready for an explosion of gorgeousness, lovelies! If you love gold foil as much as I (Emma here), you’re in for a treat! Gold foil (also known as gold leaf) is shiny, shimmery, and oh-so-glam for weddings. And, let’s face it: some things are just 10x prettier in gold. To make your wedding instantly POP, just add gold! We’ve rounded up thirty handmade finds to inspire you including items you’d expect (invitations, save the dates, delightful decor) PLUS some unexpected finds — temporary tattoos, drink stirrers, a charming banner, coasters, and popcorn favor bags. Don’t miss out on these incredible finds! Read on to begin…
I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?
Earlier this week, we received a question from bride-to-be, Anne. She was picking out decor for her reception and wanted to know what we thought of wedding chair signs. She asks, “Dear Emmaline: I am planning my wedding and I wanted to know if wedding chair signs are a must-have. I know they’re not a requirement, but do you think it’s something I should consider?” Great question, Anne! There are a few situations where decorative signs for your chairs may come in handy. Read on to see why wedding chair signs might be a worthwhile addition to your to-do list + see a few of our favorite handmade wedding finds…

Black and white makes a perfectly elegant color palette, but if you’re more of a rustic-loving bride, we’ve got you covered there, too, thanks to this invitation suite by Wide Eyes Design. Consequently, it’s one of my favorite invitation suites I’ve seen this year.
We’ve found an adorable save the date idea (by Different Designs), a card that sweetly asks bridesmaids to join in on the fun (by Drippy Ink), and a silhouette guest book alternative you can use as wall art in your home (by Fancy This Photo).
