If you’re as obsessed with Pinterest as I am then you would have seen the trend of the donut wedding cake cropping up in your feed so we thought it was about time we show you guys how you can make your own! I am SO IN LOVE with this idea and the great news is it’s something that you can easily create yourself if you’re on a budget! Shop around the supermarkets and find out where the best donuts are for you, we got these ones from Sainsbury’s and they were 24 donuts for £5! Total bargain! Here’s how easily you can do this…

YOU WILL NEED:

A cake stand // Enough donuts for your guests // Fresh flowers of your choice (we went with roses) //

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY (1)

Last month we held our 3rd annual blog survey. We were super excited to receive your responses in the hopes of making Bespoke Bride an even more useful platform for those planning a wedding and were thrilled by the number of responses. This year was by far our most popular yet. We shared your feedback a few weeks later and discussed the ways in which this would be used to help us improve for the coming year. All in all we were extrememly pleased with how well we had done so far, you guys went out of your way to tell us how much you ‘loved’ our blog and ‘the variety’ of content we sharedsome of you likened reading our blog to ‘chatting with your best friend‘ and we even received a marriage proposal!

But there was something troubling us?

At the end of the survey we gave you the chance to to finish this sentence…

COLOURFUL BOHEMIAN WEDDING IN LAKE TAHOE (6)

COLOURFUL BOHEMIAN WEDDING IN LAKE TAHOE (4)

Jaime and Roger are a couple that LOVE COLOR and everything about the outdoors of Lake Tahoe, the beautiful place in which they both live, work and play. So, it was no surprise that a beach/lakefront ceremony was a MUST, along with partying with all their local friends and family at Basecamp Tahoe South, a boutique outdoor lifestyle hotel in the heart of downtown south lake Tahoe.

The couple dined on tacos alfresco, while drinking fresh margaritas and sangria in the personalized mugs that all guests received at their place settings. There was every color of vintage glassware and candles on the guests rustic picnic tables that were adorned with bright colored runners!

There was ping pong, corn hole, and a photo booth for guests to entertain themselves and the LOVE sign that lit up the outdoors and could be seen by all!
