If over-the-top, crazy, Cake Boss-style cakes aren’t your thing, here is a wedding cake story for you.

People can get insane with theme-y cakes, but if you’re hoping to go a more classic route for your big day, look no further. I hate crazy cakes–they are so tacky. For my own wedding, I had a very simple vanilla cake with some pink peonies placed between the layers–see it here. There are some really beautiful things that can be done with simple and delicious all white wedding cakes–from decorating them with fresh flowers to berries to succulents or piping frosting on them in classic patterns like dots or fondant stripes. Click through the slideshow above for some wedding cake inspiration–all you have to do is print the one you want and hand it to your caterer. Cha-ching.
