Elegant Wedding Cakes Ideas – Picking your wedding cake?
Elegant Wedding Cakes are a work of art on its own.
It can be overwhelming for what seems a small task (to pick a wedding cake) amongst the many other things to deal with when it comes to wedding planning.
The simplest way to go about it is to choose a cake design according to your theme. No theme? Pick colors similar to your color scheme. Otherwise, stick with creams and white and keep it simple!
The Significance of Elegant Wedding Cakes
In order to be elegant, try to have an overall unifying focus. Stay away from having a mass jumble of everything and nothing. Incorporate some meaning into the details, work everything around one thing. A theme. A focus. You. A special meaning.
A Story of Elegance
An important story I remember my old french teacher was telling me. When America wanted to bring McDonald’s into France, starting with Paris, the French resisted fervently as they wanted to keep France ‘authentic’. Finally, world globalization took over and the governors eventually relented, however, they made a request – to whether they could change the colors of red and yellow to something more tasteful, perhaps blue and brown so that it would match the beauty of the city.
What a powerful story to remember in our journey of elegance.
About two years ago, I was in Paris and I eagerly looked for McDonald’s. I noticed that it was true that from the outside, you could not see the trademark red and yellow, (which you usually could spot it a mile away.) Instead, it was a cream colored canopy over the shop, very much like a traditional french bakery, with a black “M”, which looked civilized, and indeed in tune with the beautiful elegant building.
