Ask The Celebration Advisor: I'm getting married in Louisville Kentucky because my fiance's family is from there. We're stationed in Wyoming so his parents have agreed to plan everything but want me to choose the type of wedding cake I want. I have no idea what to do for a traditional Southern wedding because I've never been to one and I think I would offend them if I chose something that I want like a modern wedding cake in red and black. What should I do? ~ Maleigha
The Celebration Advisor: You're well within your rights to get a contemporary wedding cake if that is what you want. However, it is understandable (and applaudable) that you want to make your future in-laws happy with your choice. If you truly want something with a bit more style and unique appeal, consider these wedding cake designs that are popular with southern brides in Louisville, KY.
Polka dot wedding cakes are very popular with Louisville brides (and brides across the country) because they are unique and can feature any variety of colors. While the overall design may not appeal to your in-laws, two tiers of a polka dot wedding cake keep the design from being overwhelming.
The second wedding cake photo depicts a very beautiful, contemporary round wedding cake that many people will get on board with. Though round wedding cakes with ribbons around the base of each tier aren't particularly unique, adding an accent like edible cake flowers or draping fondant will help. Wedding cake bakeries in Louisville Kentucky will have many talented pastry chefs who can make helpful suggestions.
The last wedding cake photo is one that should excite you because it's design is simple enough to be liked by traditionalists but contemporary enough in color and form to appeal to you. Red, white, black and silver or a two-color palette will help your Louisville wedding cake bakery create an exquisite cake for your wedding!
