Wedding Inspiration: White Wedding Cakes

Through all of The Barn's diverse weddings from last year, there were a few trends that we saw popping up over and over again. One of those trends was color palettes that included purple, which we talked about last week. Another was white wedding cakes! They were huuuuge (apparently I watched too much Inauguration Day coverage, wink, wink) last year. Many of our couples opted for simple white cakes - dressed up with florals, greenery and pretty cake toppers (or left super simple with minimal additions) - instead of the more colorful, detailed cakes we've been seeing for several years. While we love super detailed wedding cakes (they are such works of art!), we are also totally on board with the white wedding cake trend. Less can really be more, especially when it comes to cakes! Here are some of the prettiest white cakes that I'm drooling over... They're from some of our most recent weddings, as well as a few oldies! Grab a coffee and a cookie before you go any further, y'all. ;)
