Retro wedding cakes are one of our favourite wedding trends we’ve seen in the last year. The vintage kitsch style of these wedding cakes has such a classic and timeless feel! They're just so nice to look at, and even nicer to eat! The iced wedding cake can be decorated with cherries for something fun or flowers for something more traditional. Plus, the colour of the icing you choose can have such a different effect on the cake! We’ve got the best 20 retro wedding cakes in bright colours, neutrals and, of course, shades of pink! Have your cake and eat it too in this fabulous wedding cake roundup!

Rock My Wedding presents the best 20 retro wedding cakes with inspiration from real weddings!

Bright Vintage Cakes

Maximalist aesthetic? You've got it right here. With an excess of icing, these vintage wedding cakes are the perfect recipe for those couples that love all things bright and beautiful. For the bold and daring that aren't afraid to splash some colour in their day, these retro cakes are the answer you need! If you are a little nervous about colour going for some colourful icing on your cake is a lot more subtle than going for bright flowers, for example! Take a further look at how this Sefton Park Palm House wedding used colour in their day!

The Best Retro Wedding Cakes

These super kitsch wedding cakes with a white or neutral base are perfect for a luxury and traditional black tie wedding. As we said before, they're not exactly the choice for the minimalist couple, but are a great choice for those couples that are looking to help their day stand out with a cake to remember! If you have a vintage wedding cake design like some of those below, your guests will not be forgetting your cake in a hurry! 

Pink Kitsch Wedding Cakes

We also had to dedicate a part of this roundup to just pink retro wedding cakes! A pink wedding theme is one of the most popular colour schemes for weddings anyway. It's the colour of love, super feminine, and goes with plenty of other colours. So using it as the icing colour choice for your kitsch vintage wedding cake is a choice that won't steer you wrong. You can always rely on us for some sage advice and we'd like to consider ourselves your wedding planning BFF!

There's just something about these cakes that look so appetising! It must be all that icing!
