Centerpieces

The Wedding Cake

Not everyone likes fruit cake. It’s a fact! These days the classic 3 tier cake is considered old hat, so why not embrace your favorite foods instead? How about a doughnut tower, or cupcake display? Cheese wedding cakes are rising in popularity, which includes a tier of different cheeses selected by you and your partner. Wedding Pie’s are ideal for those who don’t have much of a sweet tooth either. What could be better than a tower of all your favorite pies with many different, glorious fillings?

Ice Cream

Having a wedding in the summertime? Why not bring the celebrations outdoors and have an ice cream van waiting to serve your guests their favorite ice cream flavors and delicious ices? Not only is this fun, but your guests (particularly the little ones) will thank you if it’s a very hot day!

Shake up the Seating

Everyone seems to get stressed over the seating plan. Who can’t sit with who, Uncle A must be seated next to Aunt B but can’t go near Grandma C…. nightmare! Remember, this is your wedding day! Why not throw out the seating plan and get some picnic blankets down instead? Picnic benches are a great idea for outdoor venues too! As well as bales of hay! The opportunities are endless.
