1. Taste the cake: As you start setting up appointments, find out when each baker’s next tasting is scheduled. at tastings, clients are invited into

3. Size it up: Generally, three tiers will serve 50100 guest; you will likely need five layers for 200 guests or more. picture taken from http:// www.fanpop.com/clubs/ cakes/images/24187497/ title/winter-cakes-photo

4. Price it Out: Wedding cake often is prices by the slice-the cost caries but generally ranges from $1.50-$15 per slice. The more complicated the cake...the higher the price tage. 5. Get some facts on Frosting: Buttercream or fondant? That’s the main question. Buttercream is often much more delicisou. But if you love the smooth, almost surreallike look of fondant as much as we do, consider frosting the cake in buttercream fist and thena dding a layer of fondant over the entire confection.

6. Consider the Weather: If your having an outdoor wedding in a hot climate, stay away from whipped cream, meringue, and buttercream: They melt. Ask your baker about summer icing options. You might want to go for a fondant-covered cake-it doesnt need to be refrigerated. 7. Get It On Display: Your cake will likely be on display before it’s cut or consumed. Make sure there is a designated cake table taht allows the most elegant presentation possible. A round table is perfect for round cakes, but a linear cake design may call for a rectagular table. Once you have your table, have fun dressing it up. Drape it with sumptious fabrics and decorate it with motivfs, colors and flowers to match the cake (your florist can hlep).

2. Remember That Bad Weather = Bad Traffic Leave extra time for travel. Reduced visibility combined with wet or snow-covered roads may create slower travel times than initially anticipated. Allowing for extra travel time will make your day less stressful because you will be less rushed and will feel secure in knowing everyone will arrive safely. If your wedding day arrives and the weather is perfect you will have additional time for more photos or time to freshen up before greeting guests during cocktails.

3. Dress for the Worst Weather Case Scenario Treat your feet to winter boots and bring an extra pair of socks just in case. The bride’s dress, combined with the snow on the ground, will cover her boots in photos. Choosing to not wear boots will shorten the amount of time spent outdoors and potentially ruin your formal footwear. A pair of sweatpants can be worn under a dress to keep ladies legs warm. Shawls or wraps can be created to match your existing bridal gowns and will help keep necks, backs, arms and hands warm. Matching mittens, hats and scarves are a creative way to bundle up in winter and look fashionable in your photos. Don’t forget an umbrella in case snow turns to sleet or rain. When your portraits are finished, enjoy thermoses of

TIPS WHEN THINKING ABOUT PHOTOSGRAPHY! 1. Adjust the Schedule to Have More Daylight After daylights savings takes effect in October, outdoor photographs may become challenging as it tends to get darker sooner. It typically gets darker during the day so it’s best to plan your ceremony earlier if you would like to plan to get photos outdoors and aren’t planning on seeing one another before your service. It’s best to arrange for your ceremony to conclude by 2pm if you would like to capture family portraits indoors while still having reasonable time to capture photos outside. Likewise, engagement photos should be captured in the morning or early afternoon to catch the best sunlight.

What tips do experts give when it comes to your winter wedding dress?

G R A P H I C

Your dress is a big part of what makes you feel so special on your important day.

“snow” might not elicit fantasies of the Champs-Elysés, but they will greatly impact the winter wedding setting if you consider sparkling the trees with twinklelight strands and veiling them in swaths of tulle. You can do the tables the same way with fourfoot topiaries from local craft stores. If you are more into simple but lovely floral decorations for your winter wedding, consider either whitepotted poinsettias or possibly crisp white carnations. Fragrant and showy, these floral wreaths can be a smashing addition to winter wedding décor.
