Flowers are a good place to start and in my opinion the more you have the better. When it comes to the ceremony you could have an impressive river of flowers leading you the entire way down the aisle. Decorate your dining tables with either one large main flower arrangement per table, flowing florals across the entire length or lots of mini arrangements. You can be extravagant with beautiful colours and the type of flowers you use to impress your guests.

Bring luxury to your wedding cake with many different decadent designs. Ranging from ganache and buttercream to dreamy lace cakes, there is something for everyone. You can add such a luxurious feel to your edible masterpiece with different textures of icing, colours, heights and flavours.
