You’ve heard of mismatched bridesmaid dresses, but have you heard of the maid of honor wearing a different dress? It’s a fun new trend that’s happening now and is a way to have her stand out from the bridesmaids. Here are a visuals to show you how it looks!
So, here’s what I think: aisle runners deserve to be grand. Elegant. Full-length. Throw rugs deserve to be thrown around. Messy. Unkempt. Sometimes they’re luxuriously soft, delightful for warming under your feet while sipping on a hot cup of tea. They’re also the first place I look for Geppetto and Shadow when and the first place they go when throw rugs are fresh outta the dryer. Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t see this being a trend that’ll stick around: I like throw rugs as throw rugs, not aisle runners.
I do, however, admire those who think outside the box like this. Maybe I just haven’t seen THE ONE that’s enough to win me over.
And hey, every wedding trend isn’t for everyone. That’s what makes weddings so fun and diverse and unique.
Enough about me. I’m passing this on to our trusty readers:

Naked Wedding Cakes
First things first: what is a “naked wedding cake”? A naked wedding cake is a sponge-like cake that has icing on the top and inside its layers, without any icing on the sides. This style of cake allows emphasis to be placed on the exterior of the cake, revealing its layers. While it appears super easy-to-tackle, it’s actually more difficult than a traditional wedding cake. Since the layers are exposed, the cake itself must be free of imperfections. Also, since icing adds to the moistness of the cake, it must be extra-moist to begin with so it won’t dry out. When working with naked wedding cakes, you can use icing or cream cheese as layers — or get creative with delicious fillings. Naked wedding cakes are especially popular in the summer when seasonal fruits are ripe for the picking (like strawberries and blueberries). In this example, fresh fruit adds texture to the cake (and requires no additional cake topper).
