If there is one thing our Catering and Conference Services team can tell you, it’s that it is never too soon to start planning your special day. They have seen a lot of beautiful ceremonies and receptions here at The Jefferson, and with that comes a lot of different wedding planning experiences.
We sat down with one of our Catering Managers, Megan (MJ) Carbone, to chat about a current wedding trend she is excited about. Who knows, her recommendation may take the cake right off of your wedding planning plate!
What is your favorite wedding trend of the moment?
MJ: Naked Cakes!
Sounds good… but what is a naked cake?
MJ: Naked cakes are stripped down versions of wedding cakes. They feature the exposed cake layers, with a small amount of frosting and/ or powered sugar. They are normally decorated with fruit or flowers.
What makes this trend so great?
MJ: A naked cake is perfect for an untraditional bride or a bride who is a little more health conscious… or just doesn’t like icing (like me). Who says you need to have pounds of fondant or tons of icing to make a memorable wedding cake? Sometimes less is more!
There are so many small details to consider as your date approaches, the more you can decide on ahead of time the better. A naked cake is a fun twist on a traditional wedding staple, and we hope this trend gives you some inspiration for your special day!
