    The only one of these I have an opinion about are the naked cakes lol. As a guest I don’t not want one of the edge pieces! I would skip grabbing a piece if there are just edges left! It also greatly limits the design you can do with the cake.

    I love when you do the opinion ones. People are allowed to like one thing versus another but some posters get SO UPSET that other people don't like the flower crown they're wearing or the succulents in their centerpiece. If you like it, embrace it!

    I hate everything trendy like the chalkboard thing... no offense. I hated the photobooth idea but then I found this. It's a touch screen photo booth and looks like a mirror. People can use their finger to write on it and just stand on front of it. A back drop will be there. They'll make me a scrap book too. I caved and got it bc I want to keep my guests entertained.

    I'm making everything myself. Since October it had literally been a daily event to do something. I'm just about exhausted

    What depends on the signs as decor, Krystin? Do you only like certain signs or a certain number of signs?

    Oh man, I didn't even think about that. If it's a circle cake, do they not cut it in the circle so everyone gets an edge piece? I'm usually a corner brownie person, but I don't think I could do a corner cake piece. Smiley sad

    I like the signs for the rustic style because most of them are wooden. For an elegant wedding or reception, I don't find the overload of signage to be the right style. The only signs I plan to have is a floral welcome sign and a floral seating chart. It just feels too country to me.

    This is how the tiers are cut. It’s mostly edge pieces! Naked cakes are a terrible idea if you want your guests to enjoy the cake you spent hundreds of dollars on!

    Oh, I don't like this at all. That is not a proper slice of cake in my book.

    Flower Crowns: In or Out?- on flower girls I think it’s cute

    Photobooths: In or Out?- IN just because it’s a way to give your guests a memory of your wedding instead of having to buy favors.

    Naked Cakes: In or Out?- OUT not fond of naked cakes

    Sparkler Exits: In or Out?- OUT , I think it’s a bit cheesy

    Succulents: In or Out?- IN, I will be having them in my wedding for the groomsmen as well as my cake and in some of the bridesmaids bouquets

    White Bridesmaids Dresses: In or Out?- OUT

    Barn Weddings: In or Out?: IN, if it fits your theme and if that’s what you want, why not.

    Burgundy Color Palettes: In or Out?- for fall weddings, sure.

    Floral Arches: In or Out?- IN, I will have flowers on my Chuppah not necessarily an arch but close enough

    Signs as Decor: In or Out?- Depends

    Just curious, what's wrong with edge pieces? Are they drier?

    As someone who is having a southern wedding on a farm I'm doing a lot of these! My flower girls are having flower crowns, I'm having cotton, and you best believe I'm having sparklers!
