With the holidays coming, the chance to have a really fun and celebratory wedding presents itself.  There are so many creative ideas spreading around Pinterest, Facebook and the many magazines that couples gravitate to and say "YES", that is what I want at our (fill in the holiday) wedding.  Some truly spectacular weddings happen during this period, so how could you not want to share in the festivities.  

The opportunity to not stay with a traditional cake presents itself during these wonderful times.  If you choose to have your wedding around a holiday  be sure to let your cake designer show off some of his or her skills. But don't mistake cliche' for great design.  The use of symbols of the holiday can go a long way, so choose carefully what you want to represent.   Remember, the central focus should remain on you and your wedding

As planners, we wanted to share with you some choices around wedding cakes.   Themed holiday weddings don't have to completely represent that holiday.  Be inspired by the colors, the festivity, the spooky or the joviality of the holiday season. 

The great thing about holidays is they add a sense of whimsy and the sense of the mystical.  Halloween can be a great time to add these elements to your wedding cake.
Ghosts and goblins, spiderwebs and witches have their place certainly with trick or treaters.  Perhaps your wedding cake can be inspired by these elements.   Colors can be rich and dark. Choose from reds, purples, oranges, browns and blacks to accent any Halloween inspired wedding. 
Thanksgiving has always brought families together, so why not plan your wedding near such a wonderful time of year.  Wedding cakes can represent the fall harvest.  They should be rich in color picking up the changing of the leaves and lavish in design showing off the splendor of the harvest bounty.
When snow starts to fall and the garland comes out, the lights decorate the houses and its time to go pick up that Christmas tree, celebrate the season with a wedding and winter snowfall will set the magic.  Colors just don't have to be red and green.  Be inspired by the white of snow or the blue tinge of ice;  the deep evergreen of pine trees and of course silver bells.  Warm embers from fires and the browns and creams of hot chocolate. The spices of apple cider.  It's a chance to add sparkle and glow, a reminder to stay cosy on cold nights.
