My Ideal Black and White Wedding Cake

Wedding cakes can really make a wedding more glamorous. The bigger the cake the better for some couples, but not for us. I noticed that every time I attend a wedding I often see big beautiful wedding cakes, but they don't always serve it to the guests since there's a separate dessert table for us. Only the newly -wed couples get to taste the pretty, yummy looking cake. These beautiful wedding cakes cost a lot of money, so for me I think a simple fondant cake will do. In our case, our official caterer "Lina Vitan Catering" will provide us a 3 layered fondant cake, but we still have to decide on our wedding cake design.

So here are some of our wedding cake design ideas:

Which design do you think I should choose?

My Ideal Bridal Shoes

Bridal shoes are often taken for granted. But more and more photographers these days enjoy the brides "shoe shots" . It's really nice to know that these shoes are given a chance to show off what they got, it's part of the wedding attire anyway. So since I'm going to have a black and white themed wedding, I'm thinking of having a black and white shoes as well or a simple red pointed shoes. There are many shoe stores that offers customized bridal shoes and you can have it the way you want it to be.
So here are my idea for my wedding shoes:

My Ideal Black and White Themed Wedding Invitation

Of all the wedding preparation that I'm doing, I think making the invitation is the last thing I want to do. I know that invitations has a very important role in our wedding or else we're going to celebrate our wedding alone... hehehehehe... It's just that I really don't have any ideas in making designs (graphic art designs) invitation designs in this matter. It's a good thing that one of my fiance's best friend "A" and also one of our best man is a graphic art designer (thanks in advance!). So, problem solved. He promised us even before planning our wedding that he's going to make our wedding invitations but we still need to give him some ideas on how we want our Black and White wedding invitation should be. I wanted sana to have a black ribbon accent if possible.

Here are just some example of our preferred Black and White Invitation:

This one is nice, very girl y because of the floral border design

Having a vertical line design invitation is very unique

This one is very simple and yet elegant

I'm really into the black ribbon accent, love it!

Nice black and white polka dots design but the the red ribbon should be replaced with a black ribbon instead.

A very unique and interesting lollipop wedding invitation.

Invitation Request Idea

I love receiving wedding invites. I always get excited when someone I know is getting married especially when I'm invited because I get to be part and witness the most memorable day of their life. You can also get to know the wedding theme , color motif, and wedding details on their invitation. These days, number of reserved seats for guests is very common because in the Philippines RSVP is often neglected .

As we know we are now facing financial crisis, so most of the newly wed prefer to receive monetary gifts instead, I have this kind of poem I got from the net that I'm planning to include in our Wedding Invitation. It's a kind of a delicate request but I'm sure the guests will understand.

Our Treasure Chest

To save you from looking, shopping & buying
Here's an idea we hope you'll like trying

As we have most of the little things we require,

The gift of money for the bigger things is what we desire..

Place your card in our "TREASURE CHEST"
And we will buy for what is best

A delicate request it is,
We hope you understand.

If you decide to play along,
It will give our new life a hand.

But most importantly we would request,
That you'll turn up as our wedding guest!

Black and White Themed Wedding Flowers

Flowers can truly make a place bright and beautiful. That's why it's essential for weddings. Since I'm going to have a black and white themed wedding, I've been thinking what flowers should I have for my wedding. Actually in the Philippines, most of the caterers provides flowers for the reception venue so I don't have to worry about it, but still, I'll be the one to tell them what kind and color of flowers to use. Mr. Ryan, our catering AE, suggested to have a white and/or red flowers on a black tall pillar , sounds great.

Luckily one of my fiance's ever sexy aunt (Tita Elsie) , will provide the flowers for the church and entourage as her gift. She told us that since our wedding will take place next year, they will probably have black roses at that time hehehehe....

For me, a red and white flowers or just white flowers with black ribbon will do for the church. I like roses or tulips. I also have some ideas for the entourage, sponsors , parents and my bouquet flower arrangement. If it's impossible to have a black flowers, I'm thinking of black ribbons tied flowers instead.

Choose your Wedding Gown

I've been thinking about the kind of wedding gown I should wear on my wedding day. There's a variety of wedding gowns to choose from but in choosing your perfect gown you should consider a lot of thing especially your body type. There's different types of neckline, silhouette, waist and train to choose from.

NECKLINE is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view.

Most Common Type of Necklines:

Having no straps, also known as a tube dress. Good for all body type.

Featured high neck with deep, raglan-type armholes or else two straps from the bodice that meet in the back of the neck. Great for tall and/or broad shoulder brides.

is dips down in a U shape on the bodice. It is great for pear shaped body type, and most other body type as well.

This neckline forms a heart shape at the bust line, works well in accenturing cleavege. This is what I want for my wedding gown neckline.

is great for the hourglass body type, and full figured women, and the plurge of the V depends on the dress.

SILHOUETTE - A drawing consisting of the outline of something, a marking or shaping of the body.

Most Common Type of Silhouette:

Has a fitted top and a flared skirt that is widest at the hemline.

Characterized by a very full skirt that begins at the waist and continues to a formal length.

This skirt is cut on a bias and shaped like an inverted bell.
