Wedding DIY Inspiration: Embellished Wedding Cake

Wedding cakes are expensive as heck. Even your basic plain white wedding cake will run you a couple hundred bucks. Add decoration to that and you might have to swap the Badgley Mischka heels you've been dreaming about for drugstore flip flops. Now, I might be the wrong person to give advice (we had donuts for dessert at our wedding), but if you don't want to go broke buying a fancy cake, you can easily get a simple cake and decorate it yourself. A little trim here, some rhinestone brooches there and you have a stunning cake that that need not break the bank. I love these examples from A Simple Cake.

Shop this look:
Rhinestone brooches $8-$38
Rhinestone trim $5-$58

I recommend:
Small pearl lily brooch $10
Rhinestone bow brooch $15
Floral bouquet brooch $25
3-row rhinestone banding $15
3-row rhinestone and pearl banding $16.50
Daphne rhinestone chain $29
