Decorating your wedding with fresh greenery is more popular now than ever (not to mention the fact that Pantone named "greenery" the color of the year), and we're seeing couples incorporate fresh greens and garlands in myriad ways. Garlands of silver-dollar eucalyptus or olive branches running down the length of long reception tables, decorating the getaway car with a couple of garland swags, forming a ceremony backdrop out of multiple greenery garlands—the possibilities are endless.
And while adding fresh greens is also a lovely way to decorate your wedding cake, we think it's really cool when your cake designer actually forms the greens from sugar. Your guests will swear they're real and are guaranteed to do a double-take once they realize the embellishments are actually edible.
Whether you add a full garland of sugar greenery that wraps around the entire wedding cake, or simply embellish some cake tiers with a few sprigs, sugar greenery adds a touch of elegance and romance to your dessert. You could even ask your cake designer to match your ceremony arrangements or reception centerpieces for a totally cohesive look. Looking for ideas on how to decorate just right?
