    Hi, there!  I’m a South Lake Tahoe local, and I got married here, too!  Are you having the reception at Passaretti’s?  Or at Scusa’s? 

    Hmmmm, are you doing any table decorations at all?  Is your Fi going to wear a boutenniere, or will have bouts/coursages for your parents?  If literally the only decorations you’ll have are your bridal bouquet and the cake, I don’t think they need to match.  If you’re not using the bouquet to decorate the reception, it really won’t be seen at the same time as the cake anyway, so it won’t really be noticable if they are different colors.

    In short, I don’t think they have to match at all!

    I don’t think it matters, to be honest.  I don’t often see the cake photographed with the bouquet.  But as long as the colors don’t clash and compliment each other, I don’t think they need to match.  I am also not a fan of blue flowers.  Good luck! πŸ™‚

    I don’t think they need to match at all, get what you like in each! Also, Emerald Bay is such a gorgeous place, you’re so lucky πŸ™‚

    They definitely don’t have to match, I didn’t even know that was a thing! πŸ™‚

    @honeygoldbee:  Have you been in their new building?  It’s very nice, much more upscale than their previous location on Ski Run.  I was recently in their party room for a private event, and although they did have small flower centerpieces on the tables, I don’t think it’s needed at all.  The colors in that room are all very muted and modern, so I think it would difficult to coordinate brights colors (bright pinks/purples) with their decor.

    I might coordinate all of the flowers (your bouquet and the coursages) and then do the cake with a pale blue, like you want.  Nothing else really needs to match, I don’t think.

    Cake does not have to match bouquet. Similarly, bouquet does not have to match Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, bouts, or centerpieces!

    @honeygoldbee:  Yep, that’s their new location.  And their food is great!  πŸ™‚  The seating in the party room was kind of high padded stools; they didn’t have backs and were not traditional chairs, but not as high as a bar stool, if that makes sense.  Maybe you can call and see if they have any other seating options (like extra chairs stored somewhere) that they can switch out for your reception?
