Unique Wedding Ideas: KG Designs Puts the Cake on a Swing!

When Andy Hopper of KG Designs met with bride-to-be Christina several months ago, he immediately knew that her imagination and personality were going to be lots of fun thoughout the planning process.  Soon after their initial bridal consultation commenced, Christina said she wanted a feel of “rich elegance” but it was important that her big day be “very unique.”  Then Christina asked for something that’s never been requested of our team before… She told Andy that she’d love to have her wedding cake on a swing… YES, a swing!

First focusing on Christina’s “rich elegance” request, Andy suggested lots of deep purples, bright raspberry and other shades of violet to create a rich monochromatic palette.

Making sure the look was both unique and romantic, the team used three gorgeous varieties of orchids (Dendrobuim, Cymbidiums and Vanda) as well as Garden Roses, Hypercium Berry, Hydrangea, and Tulips throughout the elegant wedding design.

The vibrant purple florals paired with rich cream and taupe linens meshed perfectly with Design Productions romantic purple lighting effects and made this wedding’s overall look truly spectacular.

But the real WOW factor was introduced with Christina’s request that her cake be up on a swing.

While it proved to be quite challenging to create, it was the key component and true “pièce de résistance” in the elegant décor. Upon entering the reception area, guests – and even the KG Designs team themselves – were amazed by this incredibly gorgeous swing.
