Time to make up your mind on your beach wedding cake? A magical wedding awaits you with these 6 ideas that will help you decide on just the perfect cake to choose for your special day. 

With beach weddings, it’s all about the little yet simple details. And it’s no different with the wedding cake. A beach themed wedding cake can really give you the chance to let your creativity flourish. Of course, you will then have to find a cake designer that will actually turn your ideas into a beautiful and impressive wedding cake.

Perhaps the easiest way to get ideas, is to look at photos of wedding cakes. Pictures don’t necessarily have to be restricted to beach theme wedding cakes since you can never really say from where you can get a really cute idea for your cake.

Idea #1: Seashells

Seashells are perhaps the most popular accents for beach wedding cakes. The seashells are often edible and made from icing, marzipan, chocolate or other types of candy. Some wedding cake bakers also choose to use real seashells to compliment the look.

Don’t restrict yourself to just the popular options though. It’s YOUR wedding after all. Choose what YOU and the groom like. Something that is YOU.

Idea #2: Your Passion Takes Center Stage

Maybe you love scuba diving, sailing or anything related to the sea or the beach. Why not let your wedding cake represent that passion of yours? And it doesn’t necessarily have to be too in your face either. I once attended a gorgeous wedding where the couple loved sailing and there cake was the most gorgeous blue and white cake. It had a fairly simple design, nothing too over the top. But what made it truly unique was the cake stand. The base was actually a ship’s wheel. It was truly breathtaking! 

Idea #3: The Tropics

The use of tropical flowers is also very popular for beach themed wedding cakes. The flowers can be edible or natural. There’s something about a beach wedding that encourages that bonding with nature doesn’t it?

This is why many couples choose to have their wedding cake decorated with natural things such as flowers and seashells.

Idea #4: Sea Critters

Sea creatures are another popular choice. You can incorporate a mermaid, a sea horse, an oyster with a pearl (or better still, an oyster with a pair of wedding bands inside), a cute dolphin, starfish, the list if endless. 

Let your creativity wander, brainstorm ideas and before you know it, you’d have chosen just the perfect cake design and theme!

Idea #5: Sandcastles

Another option is to have a sandcastle wedding cake. If you’ve always dreamed of having a fairytale wedding then this could be just the perfect choice for you. And of course, sandcastles tie in perfectly with a beach wedding theme.

If you usually go for extravagant things, with this type of wedding cake you can really wow your guests because a sandcastle cake can be as elaborate and detailed as you wish!

Idea #6: Location is your muse

The location of your wedding can also inspire you to come up with unique ideas for your wedding cake. For example if you’re getting married in Hawaii, you can draw inspiration from local traditions and customs.

Alternatively, if there’s something particular in the location you’ve chosen, you can revolve your cake around that theme. For example is the area of your wedding a popular surfing spot? Why not use a surfing theme for your wedding cake? 

I hope that you’ve found these beach themed wedding cakes ideas interesting and that you got some inspiration from them. Remember, your wedding cake should be all about YOU!

Be original, let your creativity run wild and you’ll come up with just the perfect beach wedding cake design in no time.
