Long story short Darling Husband and I had a small Destination Wedding (only 8 ppl). We are now having a ‘We got married’ party. Nothing fancy. A bbq with friends and family to show our appreciation for them being in our lives, show photos and celebrate.
We would like to have a cake. (DH and I will take any oportunity to have/eat cake haha!)
So… something simple in red black and white. One tier. Something like this:
Please help us out with some other suggestions!
Also, if we went with this cake should we have a heart or square or rectangle? What should we write on top?
Thanks bees 🙂

There are a TON of choices out there when it comes to cakes… you can use GOOGLE to see images… or start by looking for a Bakery in your area, and see what they have showing on their website.
My SO and I are probably going to do something similar.
Our Destination Wedding / Elopement will just be the two of us, so we are having a small cake after our Celebration Dinner. Probably something “wedding-like” (white, pretty etc)
Then a couple of weeks later, we may have a Get-Together with friends (Champagne – Nibbles – Cake)… that cake will have to feed a bigger group of people, so will be more like a wedding cake in that it most likely will have 2 or more layers. The idea, is that its theme will be more intune with our Honeymoon… so more fun & light (call it a Bon Voyage Cake).
Honestly, there are 1000s of ideas out there, and some very talented Cake Makers, wording (if you have any at all) will depend on what theme / look you end up going with.

@This Time Round: Thanks! Your wedding ideas do sound similar!! We had a small cake at our wedding but we didn’t get much choice with that one.
I’ve been GOOGLING for a few hours this afternoon lol. I’m finding a lot of exquisite cakes but it’s actually proving a bit hard to find something a little bit more simple but still nice and ‘weddingish’.
There are a lot of fancy cakes out there! I don’t want it to be too ‘over the top’ considering the type of pary.
I’m actually getting it made through a friend and she hasn’t done many ‘more simple’ styles as yet.
I guess I was just hoping some bees might be able to share one they’ve seen or had themselves.
By The Way Are you planning on having writing on your ‘Bon Voyage’ cake or cake toppers?

@Uniquebee77: Not thinking about any writing on the cake, actually considering conveying the “Honeymoon / Bon Voyage message” thru either the theme of the cake (ie something beachy, tropical, etc) OR by using some sort of cute cake topper… I saw one with a Bride & Groom driving off in their car that was marked up “just married” etc.
@julies1949: Nice assortment of cakes in the OPs colour scheme.

@julies1949: Thank you!! It helps to see them all next to each other. I was getting a lot of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ selections when I was looking.
@This Time Round: That wedding topper idea is great! I’m off on another GOOGLE spree now 🙂
