You've addressed the last invitation, you know exactly what your bouquets and centerpieces are going to look like (down to the flower color and variation!), you've got your photographer and DJ and venue all squared away—you've pretty much got everything figured out! But don't overlook one of the most important parts of decor: the cake! And ok, maybe you're having pies, or cupcakes, or some other iteration of desserts because you're not a cake fan (we're totally into that, too) but any way you slice it (yes, we went there), you have to have a pretty display for your sweets. Ok, we know you don't have to, but we think it makes a big difference, especially if you're showcasing different kinds!
For a rustic wedding, consider wooden cake stands in modern silhouettes of varying heights and finishes. Gone are the days of raw wooden slabs being trendy (in our opinion) and we're now loving a more architectural wooden stand that feels cleaner and more streamlined (read: not clunky). If you're having an urban loft wedding, go for stands that have geometric touches and are made out of seemingly industrial materials—like marble or concrete—and don't forget to add in bits of metallics. For the boho bride, we're really into cake stands that have a hand painted, folksy touch to them (while still feeling high-end).
