Trends We Love: Metallic Wedding Cakes

Couples are taking a shine to the glitz and the glam of metallics for their wedding cakes.

The holiday season gives those newly engaged couples the perfect opportunity to announce their engagement to friends and family the old-fashioned way (i.e. pre-Facebook). Here are six creative ways to loop your loved ones in on your exciting news.  

WEDDING WEBSITE

Add a twist to the typical way you tell family by leaving up your new wedding website on the home computer. Imagine your aunt’s surprise when she goes to Google stuffing recipes and ends up seeing your fantastic news!

GAME NIGHT
While you relax in your food coma state post-Thanksgiving dinner, surrounded by family, suggest playing a game and sneakily work in your announcement (we suggest Pictionary or Scrabble).

FAMILY VIDEOS

As part of the holiday traditions, many families like to embarrass you show off your childhood videos to your other half. After watching your five-your-old self in ballet class, insist that you and your partner have your own video to share and pop in the DVD of your announcement.

SAY IT WITH SWEETS

If it’s your duty to bring the dessert, announce your engagement with icing.

NOT-SO-SECRET KEEPER

Have a young niece/nephew/cousin who notoriously can’t keep a secret? Whisper that you are getting married and see how the rumor spreads.

GREATEST GIFT

Pass out gifts for everyone disguised as holiday presents and consisting of your save-the-date or photo showing off the ring. (But don’t forget to give them real gifts!)
