Are you looking for cake design ideas for your upcoming destination beach wedding? If traditional floral cascades aren’t your thing, check out these theme-specific ideas.
Many brides look for cake design ideas for a destination beach wedding with the hopes of finding ideas that will enhance their beach theme. The traditional floral cascade designs that many cakes display are beautiful, but if want to take advantage of the destination beach wedding theme and utilize your natural ceremony and reception surroundings for some style inspiration, there are plenty of cake designs you can use that cater more to your specific theme.
A Trip to the Seashore
Consider using designs that represent symbols of the seashore, like seashells, fishing net, beach blankets, starfish, sand and buckets, and even flip-flops. Your cake designer can decorate your cake with novelty items, toppers, and knickknack accents, or they can even draw and shape your cake to mimic these symbols with icing and other methods.
Miles to Paradise
Choosing cake designs that represent the essence of a destination beach wedding is easy when you pick a design that highlights the travel aspects of your wedding getaway. Opt for suitcase toppers, cruise ship toppers, or other luggage-inspired decor for your cake design. Another fun idea is to create a map design sprawled across the tiers of the cake, with footprints or mile markers to show how far you’ve traveled to reach your destination beach wedding.
If you’re getting hitched in a lush, tropical oasis, why not carry over that atmosphere to your cake? You can opt for tropical flower toppers and styles that represent a tropical rainforest or the laidback feel of a hammock and some sunscreen. Peruvian lilies, heliconia, and ginger are all excellent tropical flower choices, and they can be paired with hammock netting accents for both a seashore and a tropical beach feel.
These are only a few of the many different cake design ideas you can use for your destination beach wedding, so be sure to consult with your cake designer to find designs that will highlight the focal points of your event’s surroundings.
