Wedding inspiration 2018 – Watercolour cakes

One of the massive trends i’ve been seeing in my recent weddings, as well as all over pinterest is water colour cakes! A very new contemporary style of wedding cake, are you diggin’ it? lets have a look!

Wedding inspiration 2018 – Watercolour cakes

So this is a trend which has just gone crazy recently, and I totally get why! if you’re not into having ALL the typical traditional traits of a wedding, the wedding cake is a good place to start deviating on your unique spin for your wedding. I’ve decided to include a few of my favourites that I’ve found off pinterest, they might just spark some inspiration for you and your wedding! If you’re diggin’ it still, certainly head over to pinterest after you’ve checked out the post. See if any other watercolour cakes get you inspired!

A beautiful summery water colour cake with a hint of gold leaf. What says a summer wedding more than this? A fantastic way to incorporate your colour scheme into your cake if you’re not fussed about flowers all over your cake!

Now a more minimalistic approach to watercolour wedding cakes, with just the colour on the bottom tier. How perfect is that? Also perfect colouring for a blue winter wedding!

a different take on the water colour cake with having multiple colours on all the layers, again perfect for a summer or autumn wedding with the rich oranges and reds, this would look brilliant with flowers nestled in-between the tiers matching the colour scheme – stunning!

This wedding cake certainly has the WOW!!! factor. How talented and impressive is this? Certainly a show stopper at any wedding, the drawings matched with the minimal pastel coloursĀ  is the perfect match for a spring or summer wedding – or any wedding for that matter. stunning!!!

Geodes have been big in the wedding industry last year and this year, however i’ve not seen a geode style wedding cake before! such a unique and awesome idea, and I can see this working in so many different colours! Its a daring style – But I think it works so well!

Another water colour illustration on a wedding cake – but with flowers! done in the same style as the sugar flowers on the cake – how beautiful and feminine is this? I cant help but fall in love with this cute idea!


Has this inspired you to go all watercolour for your wedding? What would you have for your big day instead?
