Flowers are an integral part of every wedding, right down to the cake itself. Wedding cake flowers can add an extra touch of beauty and grace to the end result. There are many common ways for them to complement the design and flow of your presentation. For starters, having them on the table around the cake really spices up the overall look and feel. Placing a small corsage on the top of it is one popular option, as is spreading some flower petals on top of the cake. Flashier arrangements might spread from the bottom of the cake to its top.
In the past, artificial flowers were the most common choice. Whether sugar flowers meant to be eaten or silk flowers just for decoration, fake flowers were the ones often used. This is because while beautiful, many of them can also be toxic. Fortunately, most florists are keenly aware of which types might present a danger to the guests. Thus, it’s possible to use fresh, real flowers to garnish a wedding cake. Many florists can even provide options where you can actually eat the flowers that will be a perfect match for your cake.
Using edible flowers will often be a more expensive option, however. Since most flowers are commonly grown with pesticides, it can be difficult to find ones that are grown naturally for a good price. If it’s in the budget however, using this option can really add something unique to your reception ceremony. Your guests will love the beauty, and the overall presentation will definitely be enhanced.
