Hello all!

 

These are my inspiration for my cake, except mine will be a single layer. I'm using the color palette from the first picture. I have a topper that says "Love" that will be painted in gold, and I want it to stick out with a full stack(?) of flowers underneath it, like the second picture.

I've been going to Michaels for the last three days to take advantage of their  50% off coupon, and I found this for $9.99 ($5 after coupon!) Do you think it's tacky to use these flowers? Do they look too fake? I know some brides have talked about "silk flowers" and I'm not sure what the difference is between the fake flowers, but I don't think these are silk. Then again, I have a small wedding with mostly family members, so does it even matter? I'm sure no one will even pay attention to the cake. ha!

I think your cake idea will be gorgeous, not tacky whatsoever. Also the flowers look great and considering it's really for the photos -- no one will remember your cake I think they will work fine :)

@yooyoo definitely not tacky at all! I think your cake will look beautiful and no one will care if the flowers are real or fake. The flowers look great in that photo and I'm sure they'll photograph well on your wedding day too

Those flowers look great and I think they will be fine for using on your cake, plus everyone will only be worried about eating the cake hahaahahah -- and what a steal of a deal at Michael's!!! Make sure to share photos of the final product come your wedding day :)

I love the cake - it is far from tacky! Looks beautiful!   I do know where you are coming from when worrying about the looks of flowers when they aren't real.  My bouquet is made of pink "real touch" roses - since I bought it from Etsy all i had to go by was pictures.  Fell in love with it through the pics and even moreso when it arrived in the mail! Happy shopping!

I think they are beautiful I always try and remember that the things we fixate as brides people will most likely not even notice.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
