Three levels of asymmetrical tiers make up this breathtaking black and white wedding cake by Amy Cakes. Trimmed with gold on raw edges, and accented with delicate edible floral design, it plays on vintage and modern traditions while keeping it totally unique and absolutely making a statement.
From the designers at Eros Studios: “With a vintage twist and an old-world aesthetic, this invitation suite is for the bride who gravitates toward things that have a lot of history and story, including pieces found at antique stores and family heirlooms. Her wedding uses vintage pieces in a monochromatic color scheme so it’s all cohesive. Think brass candlesticks, vintage furniture rentals, and old lace runners. My favorite part of the suite was getting to use handmade paper – each paper has been made by hand with care, adding to the unique nature of the invitation – meaning no two invitations will be exactly the same. I also love that the vellum overlay for guests is like unwrapping a gift. You can see that it’s an invitation, but the suspense of who it’s for and what it says is a great experience for guests and adds to the excitement of the wedding!”
From the bakers at Royal Cookie Co.: “I think I have always loved bold letters for wedding cookies. I think it makes a statement! That’s why I chose to do the ‘K’ cookies! Also, gold on cookies is my absolute favorite. It adds sparkle and elegance to any cookie! I thought the gold outline made the whole cookie pop! I chose the other floral cookie because I thought the yellow flowers on the invitation were beautiful. I thought putting yellow on top of the peachy/pink background would really stand out.”
From the invitation designers at Occasions: “Our English Garden suite consisted of loveblooms. This is the perfect invitation for a bride looking for something classic and romantic. The invitation is stamped with gold foil for an elegant bride-to-be. What I love most about this design are the accents that make this invitation unique. The vellum band that matches the vellum accent on the website card ties everything together in a classic, romantic way.”
Edible vining and pale petals trellis their way up a simple yet sweet English garden design by Sweet Devotion Cakery in three decadent tiers. Its delicate design and vintage vibes have stolen our hearts already!
From the designers at The Letter Box: “I love creating custom illustrations to coordinate with invitation suites. I also love the look of gold ink calligraphy mixed with vintage stamps. This invitation suite is for the couple who values stationery and wants timeless invitations full of special details. I love the way the green and gold complement each other. Neither overpowers the design, but they work together to be pleasing to the eye.”
From the baker at Flour Cookie Co: “I would say I really enjoyed interpreting the style and feel of the invitation. This particular invitation had a classic modern look and I was able to try out some new techniques to achieve the look. Metallics were also used and they add a special touch of fun.”
From the designers at No Regrets: “This contemporary invitation wows with its geometric style and current fonts. It’s perfect for the modern bride that favors a minimalist design rather than traditional. The fun typography with the mixture of fonts is eye-catching and the pops of gold foil add an element of elegance.”

Pops of Paint
From the baker at Allie’s Baking Boutique: “This is a cake for a minimal modern couple. Cheery colors and hand-painted brush strokes give the cake a fun abstract look!”
From the designers at Chirps & Cheers: “This cheery and modern suite reflects the minimal modern style of the couple. Real paint brush strokes will add texture and pops of bright color to the suite and will make guests feel like it’s a Sunday kinda love.”
