Love is cheesy and so are these fabulous cakes! Looking for that special and unique addition to your rustic, country or boho celebration? Then its time to toss tradition aside and get on the bandwagon of cheese wheel wedding cakes. You will need at least 3 layers for it to look like a traditional tiered wedding cake and also to balance flavours. Appeal to your guest’s savoury side with delicious local and/or imported cheeses…
Decorated with beautiful flowers or fruit, the “cheese cake” can be made to suit any wedding décor perfectly. The cheese wedding cake can be deconstructed and laid out on a cheese buffet, allowing guests to help themselves or it can be cut up and served on individual platters to guests at their table with trimmings of pickled or dried fruit, dips and jam.

There a new trend hitting the wedding scene, it mixes up the traditional schedule of a wedding day by throwing a MAJOR curve ball. Par-tay brides rejoice because this one is for you; the term “reverse wedding” has been throw around a lot and we are kind of in love with the idea!! What’s the gist? Well, you start your wedding off with the reception and end it with the ceremony – genius right?! This is the perfect idea for the non-traditional brides who want their big day to be more of a celebration and dance party than anything else.
This style of wedding is however still unconventional enough that you won’t find much information and helpful guides on how to throw one. That’s where we step in, we are here to show you how to pull it off with a bang and have everyone talking for many years to come..
REMIND EVERYONE – REPEATEDLY
This style of wedding is so different from what everyone is used to that you are going to have to explain the concept more than once – especially to grandma. Ease the pressure and stress of this by constantly reminding guests during thee lead up to the big day – at your engagement, put it on the save the date cards, your Facebook page and so forth. Just remember to have your bridal party and parents in the know so that they know exactly what the plan is.
A COUNTDOWN IS A MUST
Think along the lines of the New Year’s Eve countdown – it keeps everyone anticipating and builds the momentum for the night, which is exactly what you want to create at your reverse wedding. How to achieve this? There are a couple of ways, why not hang a clock that chimes every hour or have bridal party speeches every hour on the hour. If that’s not your style, you can simply have your MC announce it over the mic, or have a large countdown cards paced in a central spot for everyone to see. It will encourage your guests to pace themselves anf keep their energy levels up.
SPACE OUT THE FOOD
This isn’t your average sit-down, 3-course meal type of party and no one wants to touch food that’s been sitting out for over an hour on a buffet – the whole idea is to party. The key? Stick to heavy appetizers like quiches, croquette balls, fried calamari + spring rolls and so on – but remember to pace them out in logical order. Start with light, fluffy appetizers, then move onto heavier bite-sized foods and finish off with some sweet desserts.
NAIL DOWN THE ULTIMATE PLAYLIST
If you thought music was a big deal at a normal wedding then you have no idea the importance of it at a reverse wedding – its kind of like a make or break type of situation. One bad song and you could kill the party vibe. Keep music transitional throughout the night – lounge music keeps conversations flowing during arrival times and can be increased in tempo and energy once food begins to come out. Have music start to increase into more party tunes slowly, which should get everyone in the mood to let loose on the dance floor. And when it’s time to wind down into the ceremony, you can scale it back to whatever vibe you want as a background for your I Do’s.
GO CRAZY WITH OUTFIT CHANGES
Its every girls dream to have more than one wedding dress – good thing a reverse wedding allows for that! If you can’t contain yourself to one outfit for the whole night, then go for gold and have multiple changes throughout the night. Greet your guests in a gorgeous jumpsuit or pantsuit then change into a killer cocktail/party dress for dancing and finish the night in the wedding dress of your dreams. Use your outfit changes to signal different stages of the night to your guests – but most importantly, make sure you are comfortable.
There is nothing worse than a drunk guy who ruins the whole night for everyone, so because nobody wants the party to get out of hand, make the last call about an hour before the ceremony is due to take place. This shows everyone that things are going to get more serious real soon.
LEAVE STRAIGHT AWAY
If your night was a success then everyone should be well fed, danced out and ready for bed by the time the ceremony is over. Exit directly after the ceremony to signal to everyone that they too can leave and the night has come to an end successfully.

It’s the purrfect day! Cats have exploded on the internet and go perfectly together just as mason jars do with weddings – so why not skip everything in between and out cats and weddings together instead – crazy right?! It’s cuteness overload! It’s fun, stylish and totally unique. Fellow feline loving ladies, be prepared because this is your dream come true…
Don’t leave any phrase unpunned – ‘just meowied,’ ‘furever,’ ‘hiss + purrs’ – the options are endless and are relevant to every aspect of your celebration. Balls of yarn make for the perfect centrepieces when scattered in different sizes and are available in so many colours to match your palette. If you are looking for an alternative to table numbers, naming each table a different type of cat is genius and keeps the theme flowing.
Kitty ears are the perfect accessory addition for any bride and not to mention fun! If you and your partner have cats as a pet then it’s a cute idea to make references to them. Try naming the cocktails at the bar after them and their personalities, or have stickers of their faces on the favour packages. It will sure be one fun feline-fest that you will remember furever [see, even now we are getting in on the puns]!
