20 Elegant Beach Wedding Cakes

When it comes to beach weddings, I’ve got to tell you, I have seen a LOT of cheesy cakes. Which is a pity, because a beach wedding definitely doesn’t have to be ‘themey’, and a cake is always such a lovely way to get creative with your setting or wedding style. I knew that over the years I had seen many gorgeous beach wedding cakes as well, so I went on the hunt, and tracked down 20 of them, to inspire. Whether you’re getting married by the coast, or just want to pay tribute to your love for the beach, each of these creations is a little ocean-themed work of art – and I bet they’re delicious too!
