It is said that by applying the principles of Feng Shui to your Wedding Day you can fill it with loving energy that can affect your marriage for years to come.
Here are some ideas you might like to apply to your Wedding Cake - can't do any harm can it?
A colour scheme which is said to be the perfect balance of yin and yang and could lead to the start of a harmonious life together.
The Wedding Cake is the focal point of many receptions (next to the beautiful bride of course!) In Feng Shui terms it's a symbol of the sweetest years ahead and is believed to set the whole tone of a marriage, so the cake is very important. Here's a few pointers you might like to consider:-
Tall cakes are ideal for outdoor Weddings as they symbolise tree energy and marital growth. However, try to avoid having a tall cake in a room with low ceilings or your optimism may be stifled.
Three is the Feng Shui number of love so a three tiered wedding cake is thought to be the most desirable.
Round or square cakes instil a marriage with a surge of energy and excitement whereas rectangular cakes start a marriage in a quite more romantic mood.
If possible the colour of the cake should blend with the colours of your reception room. An exception is white, which harmonises with everything and can be decorated with beautiful sugarcraft work to bring love and harmony to your future lives together.
