This peacock blue wedding these with it's dramatic cake complete with gold trim will make your wedding memorable.  Take your wedding a la Bollywood with these jewel tones edged with gold.  Glitz, glam and unusual.

Before you commit to using a peacock theme for your wedding, be aware that some countries and cultures peacocks are considered bad luck.  So research the cultural attitudes of your guests before you commit to a peacock themed wedding. 

Cupcakes Front and Centerpiece?

I know I've posted about using cupcakes as centerpieces before, either as cupcake topiary or that all time favorite, the watering can filled with mini-cupcakes topped with pink roses, but Alli's Cakes from Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire in England has brought it to a whole new level.

Lucky the English bride who can contact Alli to make some of her unique cupcakes that double as a centerpiece and either wedding cake or favor. Alli's telephone number is 07772533086 and they're open six days a week until 7 PM.

Alli doesn't just make these centerpieces, she can also make a whole sweet table display with cupcakes for each of your guests with a single large cupcake for the bride and groom to slice.  So Brit brides give Alli a call.  The rest of us will have to admire from afar!

THE Cake!

Like the look of this cake? I fell in love at first sight! (apologies to my husband!) It's the perfect cake for a wedding with an off white gown.  Or for a beach wedding (don't the decorations look just like the ocean waves?)  OK, maybe it's just me! But I hope you'll love this cake as much as I do.  Photo courtesy of The Knot.


In love with peacocks? This incredible cupcake carries the theme right through to your sweet table!  A cupcake in the shape of a peacock! Possibly the most creative cupcake I've seen!
