If you're on a tight budget and making your own cake, make the most of the latest trend for naked cakes – they're pretty much foolproof. Opt for simple sponge and top with seasonal fruit, flowers or lavender for a gorgeous homemade look.
Instead of having someone create a wedding cake topper that kinda-sorta looks like you and your beau, take some pictures and make them your topper. You can make silly faces, or snap a shot of the two of you making heart eyes at one another. Truly one of a kind.
