Wedding Cake Ideas & Bakeries Along the Grand Strand
Apr 5, 2019 | By: A Charmed Life Photography
So, your wedding preparations are underway, and you've got a long checklist of things to do. With each component carefully planned, the beautifully choreographed segments of your wedding day will culminate with an impressive wedding cake and the unforgettable moment of your cake cutting ceremony.
Exploring wedding cake options is a fun part of wedding-day planning. Choosing a wedding cake design means looking at dreamy wedding cake photos for inspiration. Having a few ideas in mind, you can begin the process of selecting a baker, which means scheduling a cake tasting and deciding on flavors!
As the centerpiece of most weddings, the wedding cake is a symbol of happiness for newlywed couples and a great photo opportunity for me as a photographer. I've selected a handful of wedding cake photos from my gallery to showcase a variety of styles worth considering for your wedding. These creative confections are a good starting point to use when collaborating with your wedding cake baker. Don't forget, your wedding cake design should reflect the atmosphere of your wedding venue, and the flavors should pair well with your wedding menu.
Myrtle Beach is a popular wedding destination, so naturally, I've selected a few nautical themed cakes to share with you. The subtle seaside embellishments on these cakes will compliment any Myrtle Beach wedding.
The coral-toned oceanic design of this cake celebrates the wonders of sea life within the ocean. The small cluster of starfish, sand dollars and seashells on coral ribbons of frosting incorporate the coastal elements of Myrtle Beach with elegant simplicity and a pop of color.
This multi-shaped beach-inspired design combines delicate details with soft earthy tones and three different shapes. The bride and groom topper add a hint of sophistication to this beautifully crafted, beachside wedding cake.
Warm woodland tones, realistic sugar flowers and love birds on top evoke feelings of tranquility. An enchanted forest inspired wedding cake is an ideal choice as the centerpiece of your fairytale wedding. This artistic cake almost looks too pretty to eat.
Piped embellishments and an impressive display of cascading sugar lilies, so realistic they look freshly picked, add dimension and color to white buttercream frosting.
For the southern bride and groom, rustic wedding cakes make an ideal centerpiece for a countryfied wedding reception. The dark burgundy blooms on this contemporary cake offer just enough romantic style to compliment a country-chic wedding celebration.
I hope these inspired cake designs got your creative juices flowing. With a basic design concept in mind, a professional wedding cake baker can bring your vision to reality. Most bakers require six months of advance notice when placing your wedding cake order, so plan accordingly. Here are a few top-rated wedding cake bakeries you'll want to check out in the Myrtle Beach area.

One of the final events of your wedding reception is the highly anticipated cake cutting ceremony. Standing together and cutting the cake will be one of the first happy moments you'll share as a married couple. The cake cutting ritual represents marital commitment and allows newlywed couples the chance to share a sweet treat with their guests before their send-off and departure. For me, it's a fantastic opportunity to capture and preserve a fleeting moment of your life.
