The wedding cake is often the most talked-about thing at a wedding reception – second only to the bride’s dress of course! The cake is an important tradition and all your guests will take a look at your wedding cake at some point during the day. It will also be photographed loads so therefore it is really important that you spend time to ensure that you have the perfect wedding cake for your special day.
In today’s modern world, you can get a wedding cake in pretty much any colour, design and shape – and there are some wacky cake makers out there too! So, what do you want from your wedding cake? The size of your wedding cake will usually depend on the number of guests that you have invited. Remember any friends and family who are unable to make the wedding as you may wish to save some cake for them. Whilst the cake needs to look good, it must taste good too. If you like both chocolate and vanilla, you can always make each layer a different taste. Most cake makers need at least a couple of months notice for wedding cake orders – and many a lot longer than that.
One your cake is all set out ready for your guests to ooh and arr over, you should think about placing your wedding guest book on the same table or close by. Because you know that everyone will want a peek at the cake at some point, putting your wedding guest book nearby means that they’re likely to fill it out while they’re over that way.
Whether it’s wedding invitations, wedding guest books or photo albums you need for your wedding, The Card Gallery has lots of products and choice, all at great prices.
There are chances that you are looking at designing your own 60th wedding anniversary invitations. Designing your own offers a number of benefits, including the chance to make your invitations memorable for your guests. However, you may be struggling with ideas or ways to make your own. Here are three options available to you.
Do All the Work Yourself
One of the first things to look at is to do all of the design work yourself. You can create 60th wedding anniversary invitations on the computer very easily, or do it the old fashioned way with arts and crafts. These are fun to do and you could involve your children and grandchildren if you are not too sure about the use of technology. This can take some time but you will be able to make the invitations as personal as you want.
Hire a Company
Another option is to hire a company to make personalised 60th wedding anniversary invitations. There are plenty of options available and many will even do the design work for you. All you have to do is tell the company what you want on the invitations and an idea of any theme or colour scheme. However, you will need to plan ahead if you choose to hire a company; the problem with hiring a company is that they will usually have a minimum turnaround, which does not suit everyone.
Buy Blank Cards
There are plenty of places that sell blank cards – both on the inside and the outside – and in various sizes. Blank cards make it possible to put your own wording in and design your own front to make your 60th wedding anniversary invitations personal. This is a great option if you want to tell a story on the invites or create a personal message to each of your guests.
