1. Victorian Theme Weddings
Victorian theme weddings are taking the nation by storm. From the wedding dress and flowers to the wedding cake, brides are requesting all things Victorian. Perhaps, the nostalgia for this time period has stemmed from the desire to return to a time when good manners, beauty, style and grace took precedence over all other concerns in society.
The Victorian theme wedding starts with the wedding dress. Many brides are opting for vintage dresses or dresses with elaborate detail such as ruffles, lace, pearls or other embellishments.
Victorian-era lifestyles often featured beautiful gardens and flowers. The bridal bouquets and centerpieces should be no different. Perfectly manicured topiaries and beautiful roses are often the focal point of Victorian-theme weddings....
A Victorian-style wedding cake would be covered in white icing with numerous embellishments reminiscent of pearls and other elaborate designs. Charms may also adorn the cake for additional grandeur. Victorian-style weddings are easy to plan and appropriate for the entire family.

2. Beach Weddings or Island Weddings
Beach weddings work well for people who want an elaborate affair or for those who want an intimate affair between two people. Destination weddings often require little investment in the décor because Mother Nature has incorporated 50 percent of the décor with its natural beauty.
Some beach weddings may occur at dusk or at sunset. Evening weddings may incorporate bonfires, a gourmet s'mores roast and strolls along the beach. Wedding Cakes may be designed according to an island theme with seashells, beach chairs and umbrellas... Message-in-a-bottle may also be incorporated into wedding cake design
