With shows like the Great British Bake Off taking centre stage, baking has become one of the most popular pastimes for many people. And if you and your partner fancy yourselves as a bit of a Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood in the kitchen, then why not channel that shared passion into your wedding day décor?
It’s a hugely fun wedding theme idea and it has massive scope for some truly fabulous visual touches, plus it’s quite inexpensive to source lots of the essential items. Think retro weighing scales, old tins, tea sets, edible favours and bunting.

Vintage works so well for a baking theme and the sky is the limit when it comes to centrepieces. Think old fashioned weighing scales filled with flowers, retro baking bowls, pastel cake stands or domes filled with flowers and candles, tea pots and tea sets sitting on top of old cookbooks and lots of doilies too!
Retro and vintage style baking and tea tins are perfect for filling with flowers and dotting around the room as well as on the table or as part of the centrepieces. Raid the attic, vintage fairs, flea markets and auctions for some old tins and if you can’t find any, try some artisan baking shops and let’s not forget modern retro tins like Lyle’s Golden Syrup and Irel Coffee.
Everyone loves an edible favour, so this is your chance to really go for it. Think about cupcakes, cakepops and macaroons or why not make some DIY baking kits in jars containing all of the dry ingredients. Bundle together mini spatulas and wooden spoons with bespoke napkins with the wedding date on it. Or why not show off your skills with some homemade jams or chutneys in jars?
Have Fun with Signs and Bunting
Baking of course lends itself so well to lots of fun puns, such as ‘the perfect recipe for love’ etc, so don’t be afraid to embrace it and create some signage to have around the room. And how could you have a baking themed wedding without the infamous words of Marie Antoinette ‘Let them eat Cake!’ Or why not channel the kitsch of the Great British Bake Off Tent with some bunting and gingham?
