This latest tasty trend might be dusky but it ain’t half decadent! Classic black creates an extremely chic colour palette, especially if you’re getting married abroad and hosting a stylish city destination wedding. Why not go all-out with a monochrome or black and gold theme and give your wedding cake over to the dark side too?

It’s Shrove Tuesday and for many of us that means Pancake Day. Get your frying pan at the ready!

These tasty sweet treats don’t have to be eaten just once a year – Pancake Tower’s are becoming an increasingly popular trend at weddings.

 

So if you flipping love pancakes, or maybe Shrove Tuesday holds a special meaning or memory to you and your hubby-to-be, or if you are tying the knot on Shrove Tuesday next year, why not pile these pretties high in a Pancake Tower as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake or as a different dessert idea?

 

A tower works equally well with the thin crepe-style pancakes we know and love in the UK as it does with the thicker breakfast-style pancakes we all enjoy in the US. Adorn your tower cake with fresh fruit or flowers, dowse in sugar or syrup, or set up a pancake station where guests can choose their own toppings.

Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey… 

There can never be too much sweetness at a wedding, so if you’ve got a sweet tooth why not share your love of all things sugar by creating a candy bar, sweetie buffet, pick ‘n’ mix table or bonbon display at your wedding reception?

 

Spoil your guests with a selection of your all-time favourite sweeties, or let them indulge on an assortment of traditional treats and beloved candies from yesteryear, or how about a truly vintage theme with striped paper pick ‘n’ mix bags and old-fashioned glass bonbon jars brimming with candy and chocolate confections?

 

A candy bar can add a burst of rainbow brights to your wedding reception, or choose delights that add dashes of colour to fit within your existing theme.

What says ‘British bank holiday’ more than a backyard BBQ? Okay yes, we thought ‘rain’ too but when the summer sun is-a-shinning there’s no better a way to enjoy al fresco dining than with a bit of grillin’ and chillin’.

 

So today we’re taking some inspiration from this quintessential summer meal. Serve up a luxury outdoor BBQ direct from the grill with a bountiful buffet to create a relaxed, casual wedding celebration. For a Mediterranean destination wedding, go local with cold meat platters along with sizzling meat and fish.

 

Whether you’re dishing up this memorable outdoor wedding meal for a homely backyard barbie or a barefoot on the beach banquet, decorate your reception accordingly with strings of lights and long wooden tables, use oversized chalk boards to showcase your menu and table plan, then serve up delicious drinks and signature cocktails in mason jars.

 

Feast your eyes over these luxurious summer BBQ ideas for your wedding.
