Our Favorite Emerging Wedding Trend: Cake Meadows!

There are so many floral trends emerging in the wedding world, from pocket boutonnieres to extravagant ceremony installations. However, one of the most whimsical, magical, and romantic trends we can’t get enough of is the wedding cake meadow. While adorning your wedding cake with fresh blooms is nothing new, the experts at Flora D’ Amore are diving head-first into this phenomenon that’s reshaping the relationship between wedding cakes and flowers.

What is a Cake Meadow?

A wedding cake meadow is a stunning (usually tall) floral design that surrounds the base of your wedding cake. It transforms the display into a dreamy, garden-inspired tableau, with the cake as the centerpiece amidst a whimsical arrangement of fresh blooms and foliage. Flowers may even cascade off the cake itself, emulating a luxurious meadow. Ideal for the wild-hearted romantic, this styling tip cleverly and artistically transforms your cake into a breathtaking focal point of natural beauty.

Tips for Choosing Cake Flowers

To master the cake meadow look, choose flowers that match your wedding’s color palette, vibe, and overall theme. From bright, bold hues that are here to make a statement to pastel and neutral tones that blend seamlessly with a romantic, elegant, or minimalist style, you cannot go wrong. However, consistency is key. Integrating the same varieties of flowers between bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and your cake meadow will create a beautifully unified aesthetic. Roses are always a classic choice, as are peonies and ranunculus surrounded by lush, vibrant greenery. Repurposing blooms from your ceremony is another way to enhance the visual cohesion of your wedding while adding a touch of eco-friendly charm.

Just like wedding cake flowers, there are so many different directions you can take your wedding cake meadow. Whether your wedding style is rustic, boho, romantic, modern, vintage, glam, garden, or a combination, let it continue through your abundant, striking cake meadow. The real question is, will you have fresh blooms on your cake, too?

Fresh, Clean Cakes

For those who adore minimalism with a twist of nature, choose a floral-free cake dressed in neutral, soft pastel, or pure white icing or buttercream. This allows the surrounding floral meadow to be the star of the show while the cake provides a chic and subtle backdrop. In other words, the colors and textures of the flowers, and even your wedding cake topper, will truly shine against a clean slate.

Meadows + Cake Flowers

Imagine a cake that sits within a circle of flowers and features blooms adorning its tiers. This approach integrates the meadow directly onto the cake, creating a seamless blend of petals and pastry that is visually stunning and delightful. It’s the perfect choice for those who embrace dopamine decorating or want to incorporate a fun, fresh-floral wedding cake topper!
