    Classic White

    Here’s one for an elegant all-white wedding. Alongside greenery, place white flowers on your wedding cake. Limit the types of flowers so you can stick with an exact shade of white. You can always sprinkle some gold for a more glamorous effect.

    A Pop of Color

    If choosing a bold-colored base is too much for you, try this instead. Find flowers in your favorite shade and add them to your cake without removing all the leaves. This is an easy and subtle way to add some color to your cake.

    Playful Twist

    If none of these options are bold or interesting enough for you, add an unpredictable twist to your cake. For example, coat a tier of cake with vibrant gold icing. Anything you do, make sure it still looks good with greenery.
