Weddings, in every which way possible, have changed dramatically over the last decade. From unique venue selections to a focus on infusing personality into every aspect of the event, today’s couple wants something different and special for their wedding day. Yet a few staples continue to reign in popularity. A classic example, the tradition of a Cake Topper. That said, gone are the days of cookie cutter options. Now it’s all about personalized, thought through pieces that reflect the personality of the bride and groom. So from swoon worthy porcelains to quirky fun felt, today we’re sharing our top five cake topper styles.
Style #1 – The Modern Back to Basics
This one’s all about scaling things back and connecting to the beauty of all that Mother Nature has to offer. Presented in clean white porcelain and resin finishes these classic natural motifs are given the perfect modern twist.
Every year our designers spend months dreaming up new cake toppers; their efforts are influenced not only by emerging trends in fashion, style and theme but by the Brides who have taken the time to share with us what they would like to see us create! The following cake toppers are the result of all the work over the past year. Continue reading →
With the New Year comes a new season of product development here at Weddingstar. As Weddingstar’s senior graphic designer it is always an appreciative reminder of the planning and detail that goes into designing our wedding accessories. Continue reading →
Every wedding should have at least one thing that is extra special and unique. A little something that comes straight from the heart and makes you realize how in love the Bride and Groom really are.
In this sweet wedding it was the vows, letters that spoke of first meetings, hope for the future and in the Groom’s case; his delight that not only would this wedding give him the woman he loved for his Bride, but also her daughter, Isabella, for his own.
The decision might be an easy one for you, but at some point you’ll have to decide what kind of napkins you want to use, and how you would like to display them. It depends completely on your taste and budget, but to help you decide I’ve put together a few various types that you could potentially use.
Keep in mind that napkins aren’t just for place settings, they are also often included in dessert tables, candy buffets, coffee bars and even the cake display.
Here you can see the classic folded napkin, which is usually either slightly decorated, as this one is, or placed in a champagne glass.
The whole point of the blog today is to receive a bit of feedback from our wonderful readers. As you hopefully know, here at Weddingstar we design and manufacture the majority of the wedding accessories that we sell. We are perhaps most well known for our wedding cake toppers and stationery.
We are already beginning to focus on designing new products for 2012 as the process takes a great deal of time and effort. However, this year we would like to do it a little bit differently! If you would be interested, we would like your opinion to shape a completely new product that we will design.
IF and only if we receive enough interest in this idea, we will gather your input weekly, via polls – and use your personal preferences to create something fabulous.
You would be able to choose the type of product you want to see; the theme, style, color and all the little details in between.
If there is a product you wish existed, this could be your chance to see it created!
That being said, if you want to see a product come to life through the creative input of brides and wedding professionals, all you have to do is show your interest. A brief comment on the blog, Twitter or Facebook is more than enough!
Often the very beginning of the wedding planning can be the hardest part. If you don’t have any direction and don’t know where to start, how can you possibly determine where to go next??
Once the budget is out of the way (as that should really be decided as soon as possible), you need to decide something, anything! Even the tiniest hint of an idea can start you off on your wedding planning journey.
