Let there be light!

During one of my many random searches of real wedding inspiration online I stumbled upon this.

Love it! I knew I didn’t want the standard silver cake stand that is supplied by our cake baker (for a fee) for our wedding, but wasn’t sure what I would do in its place until I saw this picture. I love the added light from below, making the cake more of a focal point.

The best part was that I found this inspiration picture in the bio of a local bride who ordered all the supplies and made the cake stand for her wedding. I asked her where she bought the supplies and she replied that she was willing to sell the whole set up at a discount! We met at a local Starbucks to make the exchange and then I promptly went home and set it up for a little photo shoot.

The plan is to add some spider mums in the 4 corner votives, and possibly some filler beads to hide the flora lights in the middle. I love the set up and can’t wait to see it with our cake on our wedding day!

Will you make use of any supplies used by another bride?
