My life as a mother-of-the-bride is about to commence, and I wanted to share some little touches that I've employed here and there that I hope will add a personal touch to the wedding day festivities. The wedding cake topper is a Lladro bride and groom. I inherited my late mother's, and I have mine from my wedding, so my daughter will be using my mom's and hopefully feeling her spirit on her big day.
It’s a little thing, but cocktail napkins need to be purchased and can easily be personalized on websites such as Etsy. Here I chose a rose gold ink and a short personalized message wishing the happy couple good luck on their life ahead.
For guests, a slice of the wedding cake can be a much-anticipated part of the day. I usually have to pass on a piece because it's not gluten-free. My daughter is gluten free also, so her cake has layers that are free of gluten. Also, she has the caked frosted as a "naked" cake with less frosting, which offers a lighter sugar content. Guests who have a stronger sweet tooth need not worry, there is also a dessert and coffee table with mini salted caramel pots de creme, mini flourless chocolate cakes, and mini vanilla bean tarts with summer peaches.
