Tired of the vintage rustic theme? Yeah, us too. Move on to a new page with a florabotanica theme: think overflowing, lush greenery and florals. 

Inspired by the new Balenciaga perfume and the floral themes on the runway, the florabotanica theme is perfect for the romantic bride who always dreamed of having her wedding in a garden. 

Stay clear of overusing succulents- this is hot right now but will be passé by the time your big day comes. Instead, choose rich greenery such as wreaths and garlands. 

Think outside the box: use seed packets as escort cards, display a patterned cake, or even don a floral crown. 

Loving this theme? Check out local venue Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, or explore other amazing options covered here: http://sweetfaceevents.blogspot.com/2014/04/wedding-season-is-upon-us-and-we.html

Keep it simple with berries for a summer wedding 

Topped with florals and script lettering, this cake has a romantic feel

The scalloped frosting and monogram topper give this cake a modern, preppy vibe
