I want to encorporate handmade deails into every aspect of the wedding…even the food! Since I want to display and serve cupcakes instead of a wedding cake, I am LOVING these doily cupcake wrappers and they are soooo easy to make! You can find directions for them here.
And I love the idea of making a tiered cupcake stand with a base on the top big enough for a small cake to sit so that we will still have something to cut! Here are some great example…
I found a good tutorial for how to make one here.
I’m not loving these colors, but yout could decorate it in any you wanted. I’m thinking a solid color rather than a pattern would work better. With the cupcake decorations and wrappers, that pattern would be too busy.
And if you don’t want white doily wrappers, you can always dye them. I think I might try dying some of them blue and purple, but it might take a little experimenting to get the right shade. You can find the directions for this here!
I am also loving these bride and groom silhouette cookies. You can get them custom made for the couple from actual pictures. Though these are suggested for a bridal shower, they could definitely work at a wedding reception as well. They also might be neat to use as the cake toppers.
