10 Wedding Cakes for Inspiration

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

Summer is wedding season. With wedding invites and friends planning theirs for next year, I wanted to share a few I saw that I found inspiring. I personally never had a wedding cake, opting instead for kegs of root beer and giant ice cream pails to serve root beer floats to guests, but that doesn’t mean I’m not enamored with the massive cakes and the thought of putting together a stylish and unique wedding. Our friends Matt and Jen had one of my favorites, mostly because it was so perfectly done as a reflection of who they are as a couple.

So, whether you’re pretending, planning or just looking to get inspiration for a friend, here are 10 wedding cake ideas to ponder as you go.

    if you going to call your post 10 Wedding Cakes for inspiration, you might want to have 10 cakes, not cookies, not cake pops… I enjoyed the cakes that were included.

    Connie, I personally used something other than a cake, and I still find it inspirational to have cake alternatives for people who want to switch it up. Thanks for the feedback, though!
